Roaches

The German cockroach is usually the most common of the cockroaches. Recognition: 1/2″ to 5/8″ long, light brown to tan in color except for two dark parallel stripes on its pronotal shield (on head). This roach can be found year round.

Ants

Ants are one of the most successful groups of insects. They are a social insect that live in colonies. Recognition: Three body regions: Head, Thorax, and Abdomen. Ants can be found year round but are more prevalent in Spring and Summer months.

Fleas

Fleas come in four stages: egg, larva, pupa & adult. Fleas are small flightless insects. The adults are up to about 3 mm long and usually brown. They are flattened sideways to enable them to move through their host’s fur or feathers, and have strong claws to prevent themselves from being dislodged. They are wingless insects, with mouthparts adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood and hind legs adapted for jumping. They can leap a distance of some 50 times their body length, a feat second only to jumps made by froghoppers. The larvae are worm-like with no limbs; they have chewing mouthparts and feed on organic debris.

Bed Bugs

This bug received its common name of “bed bug” from its close association with human sleeping beds where it often seeks refuge during daylight, only to come out to feed on the bed’s occupant(s) at night. Recognition: Adults about 3/16″ long, broadly oval and flat, with a brown color or reddish brown color after feeding. The bed bug can be found year round.

Spiders

Don’t confuse the Wolf spider with a Brown Recluse spider. The Wolf spider has the same brownish-grey coloration, but does not have the violin-shaped marking behind its head that a Brown Recluse has. Also, the Wolf spider has shorter legs than the Brown Recluse or any other web dwelling spider.

Rodents

The house mouse is the most commonly encountered of the commensal rodents. House mice are not only a nuisance but they can damage and destroy materials by gnawing, eating, and contaminating stored food. Recognition: Color usually gray to light gray with cream colored belly, droppings 1/8″ to 1/4″ long, rod shaped. The house mouse is more commonly found in Fall, however it can be found year round.

Bees, Wasps & Hornets

Bees, Wasps, & Hornets are for the most part beneficial insects, although control may be necessary in certain situations. Recognition of whether they are solitary or social, as well as their nesting habits, is essential for control of these stinging insects. Most active in Spring and Summer, they may also be found in Fall as they seek shelter.

Birds

Pest birds cause tens of millions of dollars of damage every year to American buildings, machinery, automobiles, roofs, ventilation systems and much more. Bird droppings and nesting materials which are allowed to accumulate pose a host of physical problems which can become very serious if they are not corrected immediately.
