Stored Food Pests

Stored Food Pests are very common.  At one time or another most of us will come across these pests living in some area of our kitchen.  This article will give a brief overview of the types of pests that we need to look out for. Insects of stored food can be separated into four groups...

Occasional Invaders

While ants, cockroaches, and spiders are the main criminals that try to take away from your peaceful pleasure at your home, there are other invaders that will occasionally try to enter your home during different times of the year.  We will not speak specifically of any one pest in this article, but we will speak...

Silverfish

Attributes This is not something that you’ll find in a pond or lake, but is another common creepy crawler that finds its way into our homes.  Their bodies are flattened, long and slender; broad at the front and tapering gradually toward the rear.  The antennae are long and slender.  Three long, slender appendages are found...

Mosquitoes

I don’t think it’s any secret that mosquitoes are probably the peskiest pest known to our universe.  They bite, they itch, they annoy – there are literally no good qualities about these bugs. Egg to Biter Mosquito eggs are laid, either singly or in bunches, on a water surface, or in a place where they...

German Cockroaches

We like German People, but we do not like German Cockroaches.  Before you sell your home, consider this article.  This is not intended to be an all-inclusive article, but it will give you a head start in understanding and controlling German Roaches.   Before we get started, let’s learn a few new words: Aggregation – a...

Springtails

Have you ever seen a bunch of tiny gray bugs that sometimes leap when you try to touch them (if you’re brave enough)?  Those are most likely springtails.  They generally do no damage, but you may consider them pests (if you’re normal) because they are often encountered in large numbers.   “They got hops!” If...

Clover Mites

Customer:  “I’m seeing these little red bugs ALL over my cement patio by my pool…  They’re grossing me out!” STOMP:  “Stay calm, those are just Clover Mites.” We have this conversation with one of our customers at least once a week during the early-summer and fall months.  Don’t feel bad if this happens to you. ...

The Dreaded, Red Imported Fire Ant

Have you ever been out on a lawn, maybe even your lawn, and suddenly felt a sting on your pinky toe??  Chances are, you’ve just been a victim of the red imported fire ant.  (We’ll refer to them as just fire ants from here.) The only good quality about these ants is that they are...

Got Holes?? So does everyone else.

Most Un-Wanted!! If you own a home that is made out of wood, which covers about 99.9% of us, then you’ve probably seen big bees flying around your property.  This is the season for Carpenter Bees. Carpenter bees resemble large bumble bees but have very different nesting behavior.  They like the wood on your property....

Wolf Spiders

Wolf spiders:  they are big, they are hairy, and they look scary…but they are primarily nuisance pests.  Unlike many spiders, Wolf spiders do not build snare webs, they instead build retreats.  They typically can be found under stones, timbers, and under decks.  They may come indoors in search of prey, and if so, they tend...
