There are many common household bugs and pests that homeowners in the San Jose and Bay area ask Planet Orange to control and eliminate for them.

Each pest has its own unique characteristics or traits that are important to know in order to properly identify a pest control problem in your home. Planet Orange is here to help you learn more about each type of potential pest, understand how that bug or pest might enter your home, and how to diagnose the extent of your pest infestation problem. We also have helpful tips that you can try on your own to either prevent these common bugs from gaining entry in the first place or to get rid of them if they have already created a nest inside.

Last but not least, we have also provided information on our eco-friendly methods for dealing with each individual pest, so you know what to expect from Planet Orange if you decide to get an expert inspection or sign up for our green pest control services.
