read more › Those things are real! They are creepy little blood-sucking hitchhikers hiding like phantom vampires, making it uneasy for you to be in your home, let alone your bed. We have all heard the saying Night, night. How did I get them? It's often hard to determine where a Bed Bug issue may have sprung up. The most common places to pick them up are: vacation, hotel/motel rooms, moving vans, public transport & the thrift store. They may also be found at places of public meetings (movie theaters, department or furniture stores, schools.)

These tiny workers, ever so dedicated to their queen, are literally everywhere, and we're guessing that the latest place that they've shown up is somewhere that's got you at your breaking point, whether it be in, on or around your food, water or kitchen area. While they may not be as burly looking as other pests, they're still much more than a nuisance because they are better organized and bigger in number than most labor unions. Why do I have them? Truthfully, ants, due to their miniscule size, essentially will go where they please, when they please.

read more › If there is a "King" of ants in this area then Carpenter Ants would be it. To those of you living with this royal pain in the butt, help is here! Carpenter Ants are one of the largest species of ants that can be found in the northern part of the United States. Their size can range anywhere from 3/8 of an inch all the way up to queens that are an inch long. Because of their ability to nest inside the structure or enter in from nesting sites outside (or both), Carpenter Ant control can be difficult and challenging.

read more › The Rodney Dangerfield of the pest world. Although they get little respect, you may have stumbled across a carpet beetle once or twice in your life. While not uncommon, the carpet beetle is often found in homes by accident. These pesky little guys like to hitchhike into your home and once they're in, they'll shack up in your favorite carpet, clothing, furs, heck, pretty much anything that contains high amounts of protein are on the top of their lists. The biggest indicators of an infestation most people find are either the shed casings their larva leave on top of your belongings or, on rarer occasions, due to their bites, which people can mistake for a possible bedbug bite.

read more › The house centipede is terrifying, there's no shame in saying it. There have been nights where you've come home, flicked on a light and nearly run back outside when you see a giant insect resembling a moustache just chilling on your wall. Whether the fear is based on their grotesque appearance, their incredibly quick movements or their sheer size (2 - 4" in length on average), they're not on the top of anyone's list when asked "What would I most love to find late at night in my house?" How did get these things?

read more › Why do I have them? Earwigs are omnivores, feeding on small insects and some plants. They will, in some cases, eat decaying matter as well. Favorite snacks of theirs include; plant lice, bluebottle flies, lettuce, cauliflower, strawberries, blackberries, celeries, peaches, potatoes and certain flowers like sunflowers and dahlias. Earwigs are also fans of cool, dark places, like cracks in pavement and by exterior furniture. What can I do to help the situation? Unfortunately, nature will be nature on the outside of your home, meaning that if they're in the garden, yard and mulch beds recommendations may be made by our technicians for ways to minimize problems down the line.

read more › House turning into a Flea Circus? Fleas are tiny bloodsuckers with a knack for taking over your house whether you like it or not. With a frenzied appetite similar to a piranha's, these insects are known to employ hoard tactics to drain your pets and your family of their precious plasma. You may find that you've come into your home after a brisk jog with your dog, only to find that shortly after; you've got what looks like dark crumbs jumping around your home like Michael Jordan with superpowers.

read more › Pretty much the worst insect ever. The German cockroach has been around nearly 300 million years. That means that they've had plenty of time to evolve and adapt into one of the reviled creatures on Earth. They'll infest a structure, no matter its size or purpose, and take over. Those millions of years have also allowed them to learn the most efficient way to breed rapidly and survive in some of the harshest conditions. Why do I have them? There's no definite rhyme or reason for German roaches to be in your home other than the same reason you live there.

read more › What keeps getting in my food? Well, now that you bring it up! Grain beetles are one of several types of food pests we have in PA, but whereas the Indian meal moth makes itself known that it is in the building by flying and leaving webs everywhere, grain beetles stay out of sight until it's the holidays and time to bake again. You pull the flour out to sift into a mixture and suddenly you've got beetles and their egg sacs scattered all over the counter after tossing down your measuring cup & sifter in horror.

read more › The mighty mite. No creature as small has ever caused such large problems as mites have. Both checking in at a just around a millimeter in size, the mite is commonly referred to as a "no-see-um" bug due to being so miniscule. Two of the more common varieties in our neck of the woods are: the clover mite and bird mite. The clover mite is the less harmful of the two and is usually noticed due to their brilliant red color near windowsills or trees. The other species, the bird mite, is the misfit of the group, often causing major skin irritation or rashes with their bites.

read more › Big, fast, gross and scary would be the best words to describe this insect. The Oriental roach, called "waterbugs" here in Pittsburgh, is also reclusive. These guys like to hang out in damp & cold areas. In addition to these cold areas, we're happy to let you know that this variety of roach is a fan of traveling through sewage pipes, where it comfortably feeds on its favorite food, organic waste. Why do I have them? Waterbugs will typically enter a home from an exterior source, whether it is a crack in the foundation or up through pipework in your home.

read more › Organized labor that never goes on strike. Pavement ants are a small species of ants that nest in dirt areas often under large slabs of concrete. Workers of this species range in size from 2-4 millimeters longs, which is about the size of Lincoln's memorial on a US nickel. These ants feed largely on sugar or sugary foods like syrup and fruit. A telltale sign of pavement ants, other than seeing the actual ants, is the tiny small grained mounds created from the excavated dirt of their colonies. Where did these ants come from?

read more › You say you live by the woods and have Roaches? Well chances are it's The Pennsylvania Wood Roach. They are a species of cockroach that can be found in our area, most commonly on the exterior of your home. They're massive (for insects), usually rounding out around 1 in size, dark brown or black in color and, unlike other species of roach, have the ability to fly for a short time. Be grateful if this is the type of roach that has meandered its way into your home, as they won't try to take over the joint like their German cousins.

read more › More common than you think! Powderpost beetles are small brown colored beetles that are a pest because of their tendency to bore into wood and can cause damage to wooden household items. The beetle is characterized by several small holes in a wooden surface with fine sawdust like powder around or underneath these holes. Powderpost beetles are more prone to infest dry hardwoods. They seem to have a particular affinity towards Oak. Why are they a pest? Adult powderpost beetles are not the ones that you have to worry about.

read more › Silver, but not actually fish. They love dark, damp places, carbs, proteins and books, which sounds more like a rough guide for an oddball teenager. While somewhat menacing looking, they can be a real pain (although they are known to ruin unsealed cereal and pet food products). Of the nuisance pests we deal with, the silverfish may be one of the most elusive, darting around like a flash in the night with its sleek, almost prehistoric exterior. How did get these things? They walked right in, plain and simple.

read more › Yep.you're scared of them and you're not alone. Although spiders are helpful in the way that they munch on other small pests, 81% of men, 80% of women and 99.9% of children have a fear of them. I'm guessing you don't like them either, as your heart is racing and you're reading this! These eight-leg arachnids can be found throughout the entire world; except for Antarctica. Unless you are ready to pack your things and move to a much colder climate, be prepared to encounter a variety of these guys in our region.

read more › Yes, there is a treatment for them! The stinkbug, or specifically the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is a species that is not native to the United States. It was introduced in Eastern Pennsylvania in the 1990's and has spread to several states that have similar climates to their native China, Korea and Japan. Stinkbugs are characterized by their distinctive "shield" shape that is shades of brown. Adult stinkbugs can reach up to an inch in size. Stinkbugs are active in homes all year but most common in the in the late summer through the early winter when the adult bugs are drawn towards warm structures as overwintering sites.
