Common Pests


One ant can invade your home and leave a scent that invites in an entire colony. The only way to completely resolve the problem is to find and remove the queen.

Wasps & Hornets

Wasps and hornets typically have black and yellow smooth bodies. Both will aggressively defend their nests with a painful sting. They can both seriously disrupt outdoor activities.


Cockroaches live in moist areas such as sewers and crevices. They feed on plant material and are capable of spreading germs, causing allergies, and reproducing rapidly.

Fleas & Ticks

Fleas are reddish-brown insects that feed on human blood through small bites on the skin. Their legs allow them to jump from the floor up to your calves. One adult flea can lay up to 60 eggs every day!


Silverfish & Earwigs

Silverfish are nocturnal and primarily found in moist environments. They can feed on wallpaper, books, and fabrics. Earwigs are dark-redish brown and recognizable by their pincers.


Scorpions contain a stinger on the end of their tails which can be painful and in some cases deadly. They are nocturnal and can often come out in the night to ambush their prey.


Spiders produce venom that is poisonous to their prey. While most spiders are not dangerous to humans, they can create unsightly webs that trap and attract other pests.


Adult crickets are typically 3/4-1 inch long, brownish-yellow and have 3 dark bands on their head. Crickets are nocturnal and their vocal “song” and chirping can keep humans from getting sleep.
