During the summer months it is not unusual to discover that humans are not the only life forms inhabiting our homes. Common household pests in our region include ants, termites, mice, rats, spiders, fleas, bees, wasps, yellow jackets, household flies, earwigs, and centipedes. 

The number one nuisance pest in our region and in the United States is the ant. The carpenter ant damages wood structures by excavating tunnels and hollowing out spaces for nesting. 

Indoor pest invasions often begin outside, where pests such as ants, mice, and cockroaches are en route to find food, water, warmth from the cold, or a better environment. In many cases, ants make their nest outside the home and travel back and forth for food and water. Therefore controlling the outdoor environment is essential to preserving the interior environment. 

More than a simple nuisance, insects and rodents can create health hazards to you, your family, your pets and your home. Pests and vermin can carry disease and leave droppings that cause respiratory and asthma problems.

Taking on the task of ridding our homes of unwanted guests ourselves is not easy and often is ineffective.
