As harmless as beetles may seem to your physical person, they can wreak havoc on the wood framing of your home and any fruit trees in your surrounding landscape. The Colorado potato beetle and the Western Corn Rootworm may consume everything in your garden before you know it. Simple sprays are incapable of eliminating certain forms of wood boring beetles, so it helps to have a professional with the right tools for the job.
Any centipedes in your home or surrounding landscape are not a serious health risk to humans, but they can damage the roots of your surrounding vegetation. Millipedes and centipedes may act as a controlling factor for other pests, so it helps to have a knowledgeable pest control professional in your corner.
The preeminent survivors of nature, cockroaches spread quickly and adapt to their environment with ease. You may be facing an infestation of the German, American, Asian, or Oriental varieties. The site of just one of these horrid creatures is enough to change anyone’s impression of your home. An infestation of cockroaches may also end your eating establishment’s time in business. Before these creatures are allowed to set up shop in your kitchen, hire an exterminator who knows them better than anyone.

Food-eating and fabric-eating moths are a threat to your way of life. A fabric eating moth can destroy your inventory, and the female Indian Meal Moth can lay up to 300 eggs in your home at one time. If you open up your closet and find your favorite jacket in tatters, the time may be right to hire a proven pest control professional.
Any animal that has continually-growing incisors that they must gnaw in order to keep serviceable is considered a rodent.

A chewed electrical wire can lead to a devastating house fire, so start taking these furry invaders seriously. Hire an experienced professional that understands how to catch and remove a diseased rat or rodent right away.
As effective as spiders are at minimizing the populations of other harmful insects, certain species can be seriously dangerous to your own health.

Termites can often be confused with other swarming insects like flying ants; this confusion can often lead to serious consequences for your home.

We can help you to eliminate any sources of food, and locate the colony for destruction.
