Once bees nest on your property, guests will hesitate to visit your business or home. Allergens to bee venom can be fatal.

Termites play a vital role in nature. They break down dead wood and other cellulose materials. This is helpful in the ecosystem and the balance of nature. However, in residential areas, these behaviors can become liabilities.

Many people are terrified of snakes, especially when they find them in their home. Though most snakes won’t seek refuge in your house, they may end up in your garage or basement by accident as they follow prey like mice and rats. They won’t cause any structural damage to your home, but can certainly pose a health risk if the snake is venomous.
Rats will eat anything they can, and they’ll destroy anything they can’t eat. Rats spread disease, and their capacity for property destruction is frankly amazing. Trapping, baiting and poisoning these pests is only the beginning; regular maintenance and a strategy for preventing access and nesting is the only way to guarantee long term protection against rat problems.
Mice are quick to breed, fast on their feet, and able to burrow into boxes and squeeze into the tiniest cracks. Mice are famous for eating through anything that stands between them and food, and for being just clever enough to hide the damage while their litters grow and multiply. In worse cases, they can contaminate food storage while going unnoticed.
Ants can nest anywhere, and enter through the smallest cracks. Once one ant finds a food source, more are sure to follow thanks to their ability to track each other by scent. They’re very mobile pests; to control them effectively, the whole property must be treated. An ant colony can build and repopulate a new nest very quickly.
The old saying is true. If you have cockroaches, you have a lot more cockroaches than you’re seeing. Colonies can live under linoleum, inside any part of a structure, inside stored items, and more. This pest can range from the tiny, to sizes relatively gargantuan for urban insects. It goes without saying that this is not an easy pest to eliminate, requiring thorough treatment and attention to detail.
Stink bugs belong to the Pentatomidae family of insects and are also known as "stink bug" or "shield bugs" (because all adult stink bugs are shield-shaped). They derive their name from their tendency to eject an extremely foul and strong smelling fluid from their thorax when disturbed, handled, injured, squashed or threatened.
Beetles come in many shapes, sizes and colors. Some, like the click beetles, are long and slender. Some beetles like lady beetles and June beetles (also known as June bugs) have an oval or rounded shape. There are even beetles that resemble spiders.
Fleas are annoyingly fast to reproduce and can carry blood-born diseases. All it takes to cause a flea problem is one guest or customer with a pair of unwanted stowaways on their clothes. Fleas can nest, feed, and breed either indoors or out, living off of organic debris and preferring to attach themselves to people an animals. This means a severe nuisance, especially for businesses. A flea problem is a guaranteed way to lose business. Meanwhile, for homes, your poor pets will suffer the brunt of the assault.
Ticks are a painful and dangerous nuisance, especially for customers with animals, or anyone who lives or operates a business near Mother Nature. Ticks can detect poisons, and they know how to run and hide when insecticide is being applied. These smart instincts make tick control a very methodical job, requiring thorough treatment and a pattern of application that won’t result in a tick stampede headed into your property from elsewhere on the premises.
Bats have been called "flying rats" and they have been associated with things like witches, vampires and the supernatural. Bats are actually a vital part of the ecological system of this planet and can provide a valuable service, but when they decide to make their home inside your attic they become a pest.
Like bees, wasps present a serious problem, especially for businesses. Wasps tend to create multiple nests, and are experts at hiding their nests within your structures, even inside of walls. All it takes is a single crack in your facade for your building to become a flying stinger factory.
