Please review the following list of common problem pests. This guide will assist in identifying the culprit of your infestation.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ants - Ants are social insects capable of reproducing quickly and forming large colonies with multiple queens. Ant infestations can wreak havoc on woodwork, landscaping and electrical wiring. Their attraction to sweet-smelling & protein-rich food sources draws them toward kitchen pantries and cabinets.

Pantry Bugs - Indian Mealmoths and Confused Flour Beetles are common pantry insects. They feed on flour and corn meals, grains, crackers, nuts, powdered chocolates & dog food. CLICK HERE to go to the Pantry Bugs Identification Page. 
 
 
 
 
Soil Insects - Earwigs, Sowbugs, Centipedes, Millipedes, Springtails, Firebrats & Silverfish are all earth-dwelling insects that frequently come into human contact. These bugs enjoy moist, dark and cooler environments and are usually seen in basements, near sinks and toilets, and underneath brick and masonry units outside.

Roaches - Cockroaches are the most commonly reported pest. These insects are highly adaptable and quick to reproduce. Cockroach infestations can pose serious health risks as their exoskeleton carries disease and their droppings irritate asthmatics.
 
There are several different kinds of roaches; each with different habitats, feeding habits, and possible dangers to the health of your household. CLICK HERE to go to the Cockroach Identification Page.
 
 
 
 
 
Stinging Instects - Stinging insects include Honeybees, Bumblebees, Wasps and Hornets. Some of these bugs are aggressive and quick to sting while others are more passive.  CLICK HERE to go to the Stinging Insects Identification Page.
 
 
 
 
 
Blood Feeders - Bed Bugs, Fleas and Lice are all parasitic insects that feed on human and animal blood. Infestations can be large and difficult to remove due to the hardiness of these creatures. Because they feed by breaking the skin, these bugs often carry diseases from host to host. CLICK HERE to go to the Parasites Identification Page.
