Cockroaches: Cockroaches are nocturnal meaning they are most active at night. During the daytime they hide in cracks, crevices, and dark harborage areas. If you are seeing cockroaches during the daytime you may have a serious infestation. Cockroaches are serious scavengers and eat the same foods humans eat. In the process of scavenging for food cockroaches leave behind excrement that contaminates food and surfaces. Cockroaches are vectors of e-coli, staphylococcus and streptococcus bacteria and can also carry dysentery. Good sanitation practices are a deterrent to cockroach infestation.

Ants: Ants are a highly socialized insect in that they communicate with their kind to enhance the colony and depend on others to perform certain tasks for their survival. Ants, for the most part, are either scavengers or predators however some types of ants are known as harvesters and gather seed from plants or tend aphids to obtain their sticky nectar like secretions. Many ants have the ability to bite or sting people. Ants in the United States have no natural enemies allowing them to spread wherever they wish.

House Flies: House flies are an extremely common and important health issues in the United States and worldwide because of their ability to vector unhealthy microorganisms which carry diseases such as cholera, dysentery, diarrhea and conjunctivitis to name a few. Control is best achieved through good sanitation practices along with a degree of chemical control when needed.

Paper Wasps: A very common flying insect in the south. Colors range from light brown to dark reddish brown and may have a varying degree yellowish colored stripes. The paper wasp is a predator and lives on other insects, caterpillars and spiders. They build nests with paper like cells and attach them to protected overhangs in and around structures. These insects are very protective of their nest and will aggressively defend it with a painful sting.

Yellow Jackets: These flying insects are sometimes misidentified as honey bees by their yellow color but a closer look will a distinguishing thin waist. Yellow jackets feed on other insects as well as human food such as sweets and meats. Yellow jackets are aggressive and will defend their nests which are usually built in the ground. The sting of a yellow jacket can be quite painful and are known to trigger allergic reactions in some people.

Mosquitoes: Known for its irritating bite the mosquito is an important vector of diseases such as Dengue Fever, Malaria, Encephalitis, and the dreaded West Nile Virus. Mosquitoes are attracted to areas of heavy, dense foliage and stagnant moisture such as that found in swamps, old tires, watering troughs, ponds, etc., and are most active at dawn and at dusk. It is a good idea to survey your property and to take steps necessary to reduce conditions that are conducive to mosquito infestation.


Rodents, whether they be mice or rats, are definitely a negative factor. All our General Pest Control accounts include this service.

Our Approach

First we do a thorough inspection of the premises to determine where the infestation exists, what species of rodent is present, where are the nest sites and what factors are present that allowed the infestation to occur.

Next we devise a plan to remove the infestation. This usually includes the use of baits, traps or glue boards or a combination of these. We will also make necessary exclusions, where appropriate, to keep those pesky rodents out for good.
