Ants

Ants can enter through even the tiniest cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food substances in the kitchen pantry or storeroom areas. They can nest about anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches can enter your home in many different ways, from the outside through cracks and crevices, vents, sewer and drain pipes. We even bring them in on products like grocery bags, boxes, purses and on our person! Your home is an ideal breeding ground for certain pest species of cockroaches. With plenty of food, warmth, water and nesting sites, they can remain active all year round.

Ticks & Fleas

Many signs can indicate flea or tick activity. A common indication would be pets that repeatedly scratch and groom themselves. This is caused by the discomfort of the flea & tick activity as they on the pet’s blood.

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are best known for the habits of the adult females which often feed on blood to help generate their eggs. Adult mosquitoes prefer to be most active from dusk until dawn but can become active with sufficient cloud cover or in dark shady areas. They do not prefer to be active in the sunshine since they may dessicate and die.

Rodents

Rats are instinctively wary of things new to their environment, including rat control measures such as traps and bait, and colonize in attics, burrows, under concrete and porches, in wall voids and other hard-to-reach places. They invade your home seeking food, water and warmth.

Wasps

Varies tremendously depending on species. Most have two pair of wings and a pinched waist. They range in colors from black to metallic greens and blues and vary in size from almost microscopic to several centimeters long. Some wasps are aggressive species and can sting when threatened. Unlike honey bees, wasps often are capable of stinging multiple times.
