Below you can use some of the information we have assembled to help identify your pests.
While an important insect, bees can cause painful stings and are also an allergen for many people and pets.

Bees usually are black or brown with yellow stripes.
Unlike bees, which sting once then lose their stinger, wasps will sting repeatedly and do not die after stinging. Wasps will generally nest in holes in the ground or near a window. They defend their home quite aggressively. If you notice wasps or a nest around your home, contact us right away.
Although there are many different species of wasps, most have two pair of wings and a pinched waist. Colors range from black & yellow to greens and blues. They are easy to identify by their quick side to side flight pattern before landing.
Bed bugs feed on blood and hide usually in between mattresses and box springs. If you notice you have red bites and brown or black stains around your mattress or box spring, you may have bed bugs.
These are usually the result of international travel or brought into your home on furniture, luggage, etc.
