We’ve all seen the occasional ant in the house right? They come in for a couple of weeks in the spring and summer then go away. Or do they!?
Ants nesting in a house is often the most overlooked pest. Remember, just because you don’t see them, doesn’t mean they’re not there.
Ants can create trouble by digging into walls, cement, foundations, and other solid materials to establish a colony, this is why it is necessary to eliminate ants early on.
They are the hitchhikers of the pest world. Bed bug infestations have grown exponentially over the last decade. They’re easily picked up at hotels, airplanes, theaters and more. Once brought home a bedbug infestation can be difficult to identify.
Typically the first signs are unexplained bites on your body. Our thorough inspections will identify an infestation and our bedbug treatments will stop them in their tracks. We use only the safest and most effective treatments to eliminate bedbugs so you can sleep tight, without letting the bed bugs bite.
Bee / Wasp
Whether you have carpenter bees boring holes in your siding or you’re being chased by those pesky wasps or hornets we have the solution for revenge.
Don’t try to remove wasps or eliminate bees on your own – you risk getting stung. We have the proper protective equipment and treatments to safely treat and remove bee hives and destroy wasp nests.
These pests can be found wherever a boxelder tree is growing. Boxelder bugs are mainly a nuisance pest – they enter homes, sheds and garages to spend the winter.
They don’t bite, but they can really multiply and become difficult to get rid of, call us to remove boxelder bugs at the first signs of an infestation.
Carpet beetles eat fabric and animal products, and their larvae will thrive in homes if not treated. Adults will fly into the home to lay eggs on furniture, clothing, or…you guess it, carpets. Damage happens when larvae eat holes in natural fiber items such as like wool, silk, feathers, and leather.
These immature pests have bristly hairs that can irritate skin. When matured, the diet changes to pollen but they tend to swarm around lights making them a real nuisance. Eliminating carpet beetles early is necessary, their larvae can damage items in your home, and they also attract predator insects.
Centipedes are found in damp and dark areas, homes with moisture problems attract these pests. You might find these creepy crawlers in your basement, a bathroom or closet, sometimes even in the sink. Centipedes eat other insects, but they are not fun to look at and can multiply – removing centipedes from your home is the only choice.
Cockroaches are one of the most common, and one of the most stubborn pest problems. An infestation is tricky to get remove completely because cockroaches can hide anywhere, they breed quickly, have a very high reproductive rate and may even develop resistance to pesticides.
Cockroaches can contaminate food with E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, it is not safe to ignore this pest. Exposure to cockroach feces and even the body parts of dead roaches over time can trigger asthma and allergies. Eliminating a cockroach infestation is the best way to protect your family from the harmful effects of roaches.
When crickets move in, they are more of a nuisance than a health risk. Crickets work the night shift and will chirp to each other all night long, often making it hard for you to sleep.
They are mainly just a nuisance, and removing a cricket infestation will allow you and your family to sleep better.
Earwigs can move into your home looking for food or because the weather has changed. Earwigs prefer damp, cool areas that are relatively undisturbed, and may enter your house during extended dry spells.
They multiply rather quickly, removing an earwig infestation early on is the best way to avoid issues with these pests.
All it takes is a couple fleas brought in from the outside create an infestation. Within a few weeks a flea infestation in the house can quickly rise to the thousands. Ditch the itch and fight the bite with our professional indoor flea control.
Flies spread diseases quickly because they travel from rotting, diseased garbage and land on exposed human foods and utensils. A fly drops thousands of microbes every time it lands, these microbes can cause serious illnesses like bloodstream infections, food poisoning, diarrhea, and meningitis.
Flies also are a usual suspect for Salmonella, Staphylococcus, and E. coli.
Some may find them scary, some may find them cute. The fact of the matter is they’re the most common household pest here in the northeast and invade almost every home.
With a natural instinct to hide and climb many times they’ll end up in your attic or basement where they’ll thrive and often times go unnoticed. Once established in your home a single mouse can be responsible for up to 40 babies a year.
Termites are only 3/8 of an inch long but can cause significant damage once they find your house. Most infestations go unnoticed until it’s far too late as the workers eat from the inside out and rarely expose themselves.
The reproductive termites, commonly knows as swarmers, are most commonly what homeowners see during the spring months as they’ll leave their colonies to reproduce. These swarmers are only seen once the colony is several years matured.
