What is the benefit of hiring a professional pest control service when I can buy chemicals from a store?

While purchasing chemicals and treating your home or business is an option, contacting a pest control service will ensure that treatment is efficient and correct. The most important factor to eradicating a pest issue is properly identifying the species. Once the pest has been identified, a pest management professional will use knowledge, tools and proper pesticide to rid your home or business of its current issue.

How can I identify a pest that is not in the Pest Library?

While the Pest Library is a list of the most common pests found in our region, it is by no means an exhaustive list. If you would like help identifying an insect, please feel free to contact us.

A photograph of the insect would be most helpful. If you cannot supply a photograph, a general description (color, markings, size, etc.) and location (indoors, outdoors, etc.) would be most helpful in identifying the insect.

Why are there more invasive, non-native species of insects in recent years?

The simple answer: the growth of the global economy. In an effort to boost a country’s export and Gross National Product, international commerce has become a very normal practice. With the spread of humans to foreign lands, the insects are simply piggybacking and thriving in foreign places.
