ANTS

Ants rank among the most common of all pests in Sussex County, Delaware and on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Very aggressive and invasive, established ant colonies can harbor close to a half million ants and the goal of nearly every one is to continuously feed and sustain the colony. Active all year long and in any weather condition, foraging ants can be found just about anywhere in your home leaving an invisible chemical trail for other ants to follow: through cracks, under carpets, behind baseboards and just about any place else you can think.

BEES

A quick glance (or while you're running and flailing your arms) can make it hard to tell if you're dealing with a Honey Bee, a Hornet or a Yellow Jacket. And while the Yellow Jacket is considered to be among the most dangerous of all stinging insects in the United States, the fact is, any of the three can sting if they feel threatened. Couple this with the potential risks of allergic reactions and it's easy to see why the best way to deal with bees is to simply call us. 

CRICKETS

Unless they are named Jimminy, wear a top hat, carry a cane and sing, crickets are just plain annoying once they get in your house. First, there is that noise. The one that keeps you up at night and can send you searching throughout the house trying to find the source. Next is the damage they can cause: crickets will eat just about anything and routinely ruin clothes, furniture, bedding, fruits and vegetables and a (laundry) list of other items in your home best kept for you and your family. 

FLEAS

Most commonly associated with scratching cats and dogs, fleas can get carried into your house from just about anyone. and once they are inside, everyone is fair game. Feeding on their host's blood supply, flea colonies can quickly overtake an entire home - from the cat and dog to the kids, mom and dad and just about everyone else that comes into the house. And, as if the constant and sometimes painful scratching isn't enough, fleas pose genuine health problems by spreading diseases like typhus and tularemia. 

MOSQUITOES

Some of the same things that attract us to this area, like the beauty of its natural wetlands and marshes, is exactly what attracts mosquitoes. And while most pests infest our homes, making them uncomfortable to live in, mosquitoes do the opposite, attacking us outside, turning a beautifully landscaped lawn, porch or patio grilling area into an unusable space that we can only admire from a distance. In addition to be annoying, mosquitoes also pose very real health risks, able to transmit diseases such as the West Nile Virus as they move between food sources.

RODENTS

Some people think mice are cute. We are not those people. Why? Because we are well aware of the health hazards rodents like mice and rats bring into homes. Able to cause incredible amounts of damage in your home that includes destroying property, contaminating food and bringing other insects in with them like ticks and mosquitoes. The trails of fecal matter, saliva and urine they leave can also bring diseases into your home that put your family at elevated health risks they should not have to face.

ROACHES

Roaches can be found in almost every environment and in any home throughout the United States, including right here in Sussex County, Delaware and The Eastern Shore. The most common residential ones found on the East Coast occupy houses apartments and condos. Since they are active primarily at night, roaches can be hard to detect, however, the damage they can do is not. Feeding on everything from food to drywall, roaches can wreak havoc also carry contagious diseases including typhoid and dysentery.

SPIDERS

FYI: Spiders are not considered insects but instead classified as arachnids. Furthermore, some "spiders" aren't even considered spiders at all, like the famous Granddaddy Long Legs, which is actually considered a "Harvester". Confused? Don't be, because this is all you really need to know: Spiders as a whole, can be very useful creatures to have around the house as they hunt and eat other peskier, harmful insects. However, watching and controlling them around your home as well as identifying them will keep the threat of a spider infestation in check.

STINK BUGS

Stink bugs feed on many farm crops including soybeans and corn. They are a prominent pest here on the Eastern Shore and throughout Southern Delaware. What makes them a problem for homeowners is that often times, you don't know that they are in your house until they've infested it! The problem lies in the fact that they lie dormant "overwintering" in your house and get active again with the onset of warmer weather. Resistant to many treatments, stink bugs require all the professional resources we have to eliminate them.

TICK

Ticks might be tiny but the picture to the right shows the actual size of the problems they pose. These blood-thirsty creatures redefine what it means to be a parasite, happily gorging on the blood of its host so they can grow and reproduce. Once their hunger is satisfied, female ticks will detach from their host and lay about 1,000 eggs and each new tick that hatches is ready to feed immediately. Growing in numbers as evidenced by increasing calls for their control, ticks are notorious for spreading diseases Like Lyme and Rocky Mountain Fever.
