List of common pests we service and a brief description of the potential dangers they can have on yourself, your home, or work environment
Wildlife can get sick with diseases that are dangerous to humans. Illnesses that humans can get from wildlife include Rabies and Lyme disease. People can catch these diseases from the droppings of infected animals, touching or feeding wildlife, and in some cases, being bitten by the animal.
There are more than 43,000 known species of spiders around the world, but only a small number are poisonous. Still, if left unchecked in certain environments, can cause problems in homes or commercial structures.
Rats can contaminate food and are capable of spreading bacteria that cause food poisoning. These rodents can also transmit pathogens that cause plagues like typhus, leptospirosis,
lymphocytic choriomeningitis and Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.
Common kinds of flies that cause problems in structures include house flies, cluster flies, fruit flies, drain flies and fungus gnats. Some of these flies carry bacteria that may include salmonella, E. coli, and listeria. These three germs each cause food poisoning. Severe cases may put you in the hospital and can even be life-threatening.
Centipedes can have a harmful bite to humans depending on the persons allergic reaction. The larger the centipede, the more painful their bite can be.
Common species that invade structures are paper wasps, carpenter bees, yellow jackets, bald faced hornets and more. Honey bees are on the endangered list, we will not treat them. Yellow jackets are known for killing off honey bee colonies.
Common Cockroaches that invade homes/commercial areas are German, Brown-banded, American, Australian and Wood cockroaches.
Bed bugs will feed on on the blood of animals including people and pets. Some species feed on bats, and others on birds. All will wander in search of a new host if their primary host leaves or abandons its roost or nest. In structures, bed bugs typically appear in and around attics and chimneys. Though they will bite humans, they do not survive without their preferred hosts.
Common pest species include pigeons, house sparrows and European starlings. Common damages are contamination to food and feed products, dropping guano and feathers.
