Commercial Pest Control
German Roaches are a common problem in a Commercial Food Establishment. They are also found in Residential Homes. We battle to eliminate and prevent German Roaches from taking control. American and Smoky Brown Roaches are found in homes however they are usually nesting in an attic or crawl area.
Our quarterly treatment of the exterior with a long lasting product keeps them from entering the home. We also have some very eco friendly ant baits that work extremely well.
We provide Flea Treatments for Homes. We do an initial treatment of the floor areas. A follow up treatment in 10-14 days after. Pricing dependent on amount of area to be treated.
Silverfish are a strange little insect. They tend to be drawn to paper. We find them a lot in attics. Sometimes people store old papers and magazines up there and hence Silverfish. They will come down into the living area many times in search of moisture.
Rats can come into a structure through small holes or by burrowing in. They are drawn by food smells and harbor. We inspect and offer exclusion and the proper riddance of them. if you feed your pets outside that can also draw them towards your property and structure.
We are experts in Bed Bug Detection and Elimination. From our K9 Dog teams to our Thermal Remediation Heat Treatments we can take care of your bed bug needs better than anyone.

American (a.k.a. Water bug)
Size: ½” to 5/8”
Color: Dark and light brown banding across its back
How to recognize: Same size as german cockroach, but doesn’t depend as much on moisture in its habitat
Habitat: Prefers areas over 80 degrees, often found high on walls, in picture frames, behind molding, near appliance motors, in light switches, closets and furniture
Behavior: Doesn’t multiply as fast as the German, but is often harder to control because they scatter all over a structure.
Size: ½” to 5/8”
Color: Light brown, with two dark brown vertical stripes behind the head.
How to recognize: Found all over the world, living wherever man lives, sharing the same foods and habitats.
Habitat: Live closely packed in small cracks and crevices near food and water. Commonly found in restaurants, kitchens and stores where food, moisture and shelter are abundant. Rarely seen outdoors.
Behavior: Populations increase rapidly, and they usually hide during the day. They contaminate food, leave stains, create foul odors and carry disease organisms.
Size: Often reach 1” in length
Color: Dark brown to black
How to recognize: Not as large as the American cockroach, the females are somewhat oval in shape. Neither sex can fly, even though they have wings.
Habitat: Inhabit damp locations such as crawl spaces under structures, or underground water and sewage systems. Often enter structures by walking in or entering through drains of various kinds.
Behavior: Their travel through such unsanitary habitats increases their potential as disease vectors. It may be common in outdoor environments and enter a structure on its own, by crawling under doors or through other exterior openings.
Size: 1” to 1 ¼”
Color: Uniform in color– brownish black and very shiny
How to recognize: Good flyers and are attracted to lights at night.
Habitat: Warm, dark, moist areas such as tree holes, ivies, mulch, woodpiles and the eaves of attics, especially where there are moisture problems.
Behavior: This species is very mobile and hard to control because they are so active and have many habitat preferences.
Size: 1” to 2”
Color: Usually brown, to orangish brown
How to recognize: Less worm-like in appearance than the millipede, their bodies have many segments, with only one pair of legs per segment. House centipedes have extremely long legs.

Habitat: Outdoors, in meadows and fields.
Behavior: They are principally a plant pest, rarely enter structures, but can be extremely destructive to crops when found in large numbers.
Color: tan or brown
How to recognize: Often heard before they are seen. Common song is a triple chirp. Courtship song is a continuous trill.
Habitat: Can be found in warm, damp, dark places such as shrubs, grass, basements or crawl spaces. Usually enter a building from harborage right outside.

Size: 1/32” to 1/16”
Color: Small, black, hard-bodied and wingless, fleas have a flattened body and legs adapted for jumping onto a host.
