Located in Orange County, the southern California city of Costa Mesa is not only a hot spot for tourist activity, it’s a paradise of sorts for a range of pests. Costa Mesa’s mild climate, size and population make it an area suited for pests to thrive, including the bed bug. While cities such as New York or Chicago are notorious for bed bugs, others are also plagued by the pest. Although they are not presently known to transmit diseases to humans, their bites can cause severe redness, itchiness and swelling of the skin. And these tiny apple seed-sized pests know no bounds. They can be found in almost any public space, from universities and daycares to hotels and gyms. However, travelers and locals alike can take precautions to keep bedbugs out of their homes.
When traveling, experts recommend keeping luggage on the luggage rack and inspecting the room where bed bugs are commonly found, such as the box spring, mattress and even behind artwork on walls. Also, when returning home from travelling, wash clothes using hot water and the dryer set on the highest setting, if permitted by the clothing label. For Costa Mesa residents, pest management experts suggest closely inspecting used furniture, clothing, mattresses, box springs and electronic items before bringing them into the home, as well as keeping the home clutter free.
In addition to bed bugs, termites are commonly found in Costa Mesa. In fact, many areas of California are in a high concentration zone for termite activity. The most common species of termites, subterranean termites, live in colonies underneath the soil. These pests can tunnel their way — hundreds of feet, in fact — to reach feeding sites. Termites feed on cellulose-based materials, which includes wood found in structures. Once termites are detected, it’s often too late to prevent costly termite damage. Costa Mesa residents are encouraged to schedule annual inspections with a local pest management company, as these skilled professionals have the tools and know-how to detect and help treat termite infestations.
The Orkin Man put on some type of garment and crawled under the house and looked around. When he came into our home, I asked him what the charges were. He said, ‘Nothing,’ and smiled.

Last week the Orkin Man came to our home for an initial service call. He was professional, courteous, flexible, had a timely sense of humor, and had a good knowledge of the job. I’ve worked in customer service for the past three years and rarely have I run across such a fine display of true customer service. I commend Orkin. You have a guarantee of our business as long as people like this are employees.
