Bugs We Take Care Of

To better help us identify what kind of pest you have, look at our comprehensive chart and let us know which one you have.

Bed Bugs: Only about 1/4″ in length. They are flat, brown and a broad oval in shape when unfed. After filling up on your blood, their swollen bodies are a rusty, reddish in color and more elongated.

Subterranean Termites: Subterranean worker termites do not have wings, are cream in color and only 1/8″ to 3/8″ in length. Alates or swarmers have two pairs of wings, are black to dark brown in color, about 1/4” to 1/2” in length.

Spiders: They have clearly segmented bodies with eight jointed legs. They do not have any antennae or wings. Spiders come in a wide range of sizes from 1/8” to 3 /12” in body length depending on the species. Most spiders prefer dark, secluded and shaded areas. These could include cabinets, basements, ceiling corners and attics.

Mosquitoes: They are only 1/4″ to 3/8″ in length. They are commonly pale brown in color with light-colored stripes across the abdomen.

Lady Bugs: These are about 1/4″ in length. Ladybugs are typically yellow, orange or red with small black spots and short black legs. They appear as half-spheres and have a round or oval shaped body and black head.

Carpenter Bees: They are large and shiny. They look like typical bumblebees but are nearly all black – most often without the yellow stripes. The carpenter bee gets its name from the female carpenter bees chewing tunnels into dead wood, bamboo or structural timbers to build their nests. Male carpenter bees spends most of their time guarding these nests.

Carpenter Ants: These are among the largest ant species and with their huge jaws designed for shaving timber, they are aggressive and vicious biters. The workers can vary greatly in size from 1/4″ to 3/4″ in length, and are usually black or brown in color. They have long legs that they use to move very quickly.

House Ants: There are many different species of common house ants but most are reddish, black or brown in color. They range from 1/6″ to 1/4″ in length and have a swollen abdomen. They may be either winged or wingless.

Powder Post Beetles: They leave small, round holes in wood along with a residue of fine powdery ldust called frass. The various species of these beetles range from 1/12″ to 1/3″ in length, and from reddish-brown to black in color. The body is flattened and the basal segment of the abdomen is as long as the second and third combined.

American Cockroach: The largest of the common species grows to a length of 1 1/2″ or more. They appear glossy and are reddish-brown in color with a yellow border on the back of the pronotum. The female has a shorter pair of wings while the male’s wings extend beyond the tip of his abdomen, making him appear larger.

Brown-banded Cockroach: Most prominent in the southern states. One of the smaller invasive roaches, adults rarely grow over 1/2″ long. They get their name from their light brown coloring with two light bands running across the base of the wings and abdomen. The female is much broader in the body than the male. The adult male is quick to fly when disturbed.

German Cockroach: Adults are about 1/2″ long, brown in color with two black horizontal stripes on the thorax. The female is darker in color with a broader, more rounded posterior. Both sexes have wings as long as their bodies but they prefer to run and rarely fly.

Oriental Cockroach: Found in all regions of the United States. Very shiny black to dark reddish brown in color. The male is about 1 1/4″ long while the female reaches only 1″ in length. The female has functionless wing stubs. The male’s wings cover 3/4 of the abdomen. Neither sex flies. Females are broader and heavier.

Smokybrown Cockroach: Closely related to the American cockroach, but only about 1″ long and uniform mahogany in color, hence its name. Both males and females have wings longer than their bodies and are excellent fliers.

Earwigs: They are most readily recognized by the pincers at the end of the abdomen. Species range from 1/2″ to 1″ in length, and from light reddish brown to jet black in color. Some species are marked with stripe or bands on the body and legs.

Flea: Cat fleas are extremely small, averaging 1/8” to 1/4” in length and shiny reddish brown in color. The body is flattened vertically and is covered with microscopic spikes which project backward. They are wingless but have long, powerful legs for jumping vast distances. Most common during the summer, especially when homes are reoccupied after vacations. Cat fleas are often found in carpets and on upholstered furniture. Most commonly hosted by domestic animals like cats and dogs, humans and a wide variety of other hairy animals.

Brown Dog Tick: The brown dog tick has a hard exoskeleton, eight legs and is brown in color. They are significantly larger after feeding.

House Fly: The common species are about 1/6″ to 1/4″ in length and usually gray in color. The adult has sharply angled fourth wing vein and four lengthwise dark stripes on the thorax. The space between the eyes of the female is almost twice as broad as that of the male.

Centipedes: They have a flat, wormlike body, 1″ or more in length with one pair of long legs for almost each body segment. The house centipede is most commonly brown and reddish orange or grayish yellow with three dark stripes running the length of the body.

Millipedes: Unlike centipedes that have a flattened shape; millipedes have round bodies and love to coil up when resting. They also have two pairs of legs for almost each body segment; that is twice that of the centipede. They are brownish in color and are usually between 1/2″ and 1 1/2″ long.

Sowbugs & Pillbugs: They have oval shaped bodies; convex above and flat or hollow underneath. They are never more than 3/4″ long. Both have seven pairs of legs and two pair of antennae. The sowbug has two tail-like appendages that prevent it from rolling up into a ball. The pillbug, however, lacks these appendages and often rolls itself into a tight ball when they are disturbed.

Silverfish: Silvery, metallic body and white to brown gray or bluish silver in color. They have teardrop shape and fish-like movements, hence their name. They are about 3/4″ in length and have three long bristles on rear.

Stink Bugs: They secrete a bad-smelling fluid when handled, disturbed or crushed. They are about 3/4″ in length and almost as wide! Most stink bugs have a characteristic shield shape.
