    Ants can get into your building through the tiniest of cracks and nest almost anywhere. When a single ant finds a source of food, the rest of the colony will follow. This is thanks to the ants’ ability to track each other by scent. To effectively control these resourceful creatures, you have to treat the entire property. If left untreated, the colony will repopulate fast in a new nest rapidly.


    Centipedes prefer shelters that are lightly damp. You will mostly find them under leaves, rocks, mulch and wood. When in small numbers, they will be a good neighbor. However, once their population grows, they pose a myriad of problems including health risks as they can bite and administer light poison. Both the outdoor and ‘house’ centipedes multiply fast. Clean the potential hovels.


    Earwigs are notorious in infesting water supplies as well as septic tanks. They can make it hard to discover problems during water safety tests. Earwigs will also destroy plants. When it is hot and dry outside, they move to human structures such as your business or home. They sustain themselves by feeding on any kind of fruit, vegetable or plant matter.


    Bees will cause your guests to be hesitant when visiting your home or business. Allergic reaction to the bee venom can also be fatal. Spraying the nests to eliminate bees will not guarantee total control. The hive or honeycomb will repopulate. Bees are resilient in protecting the queen which means control is not only dangerous but there is a good chance the queen will survive to repopulate.


    Rats eat practically anything and will cause significant damage in your home or business. They also spread disease. They are a serious nuisance that needs to be controlled as soon as possible. Baiting, trapping and poisoning rats are just the beginning. You will need regular maintenance and a solid strategy for preventing access and nesting in your home or business.

    Flies are both annoying and dangerous. Some flies will bite while the majority of them will breed in your food supplies. Without professional services in pest control, most restaurants fight a never ending battle with flies. How about competing with the flies on who will take the first bite of your meal. Naturally, flies will breed in garbage. This means no business is completely safe from fly infestation.


    Mice are not easy to control. They are fast on their feed, breed fast and burrow in boxes and squeeze through the smallest of cracks. They are famous for eating through almost anything that gets in their way. They are also clever to hide the damages while their nests grow. They will also contaminate food.


    Grasshoppers may be harmless to you but they will surely ruin your garden, lawn and the landscape. They breed fast and their size will grow to a size that intimidates humans as they approach.


    These present a very serious problem more so to your business. Most people are afraid of these insects. Some customers will never step into your business if they see wasps hovering by. Wasps create multiple nests and they are good in hiding their nests and will do so even in walls.


    Ticks are a nuisance especially for homes or businesses with animals. There are many varieties of ticks but one thing they have in common is that they are blood-sucking parasites. Some will even transmit blood-borne diseases. Using toxins, some species will shut the immune system or nervous system of their victims. What is even scarier is the fact that ticks are able to detect poisons and know how to evade insecticides. These instincts make ticks harder to control. Improper control can even cause ticks to get deeper into your property.
