Pests

Ants: Interesting and Annoying

Ants
Ants are some of the most amazing, yet annoying insects on the planet. They are entertaining enough for people to keep them in a farm in their house, yet they can also ruin a picnic or destroy your food pantry.

Flies

Flies
The noun fly is a general term for any insect in the order Diptera. This includes several thousand species with considerable variation in appearance and behavior, all united by the fact that they have only a single pair of fully-developed wings, the lower wings being vestigial and used as an aid in balance rather than for flight.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches
Scurrying out of sight at the slightest light, cockroaches cause us both fear and revulsion. As houseguests, they are unwanted, and with good reason. Few of us can say why, but the revulsion they cause is alone enough reason to banish them.

Rodent

Rodent
Many types of rodents can infest a home, rats and mice being the most common. Rodents can breed rapidly and do quite a bit of damage to your home by chewing on things and getting into food supplies.

Bees, Wasps, Hornets, Yellow Jackets

Bees, Wasps, Hornets, Yellow Jackets
The warmer months are quickly approaching, and although there are many pleasantries that are associated with summer there are some aspects we'd rather forget. Along with the warmer weather come flying pests including bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets.

Scorpions

Scorpions
Instantly recognized by their eight legs, oversized claws, and curved, stinger-armed tails, scorpions are members of the scientific order Scorpiones, itself a part of the class Arachnida. With over 1700 individual species catalogued in the scientific literature, scorpions live in most environments, with the exception of tundras, taigas, and the peaks of snow-covered mountains.

Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are a type of parasitic insect that can infest homes. The beg bugs that infest people's houses are usually a species called Cimex Lectularius, but other species can cause an infestation as well. Bed bugs bite people and drink a small amount of blood; some species of bed bug prefer to feed on the blood of other animals.

Box Elder Bugs

Box Elder Bugs
Anyone living near boxelder trees is probably familiar with the distinctive black and red boxelder bug. These bugs are generally harmless but can become a nuisance when found in great numbers, particularly in late fall and early spring.

Centipedes, Millipedes

Centipedes, Millipedes
Most species of centipedes and millipedes in temperate regions are not poisonous and do not cause damage to humans or their homes, but a centipede or millipede infestation can be really unpleasant for the people living in the house for psychological reasons, namely, that people are disgusted and frightened by them.

Crickets

Crickets
Crickets are a pest that are strong in number. They cause damage to plants and crops, angering farmers reliant on the crop for their livelihood. They are a bug often found inside the home, driving crazy those trying to capture it with the loud chirp it is known for.

Earwigs

Earwigs
Many people will agree that earwigs are the more frightening or even loathsome looking insects that can be found in a home. With their chestnut colored bodies, segmented antennae, and muscular, banded abdomen, earwigs are not the prettiest of God's creations.

Silverfish

Silverfish
According to the scientists who study these things, silverfish have never been the cause of any plague or epidemic. No evidence has been found that they transmit diseases to people. Though silverfish will visit and consume many foods that are not stored in insect-proof containers, the bacteria they harbor has not been found harmful to humans.

Mites

Mites
Mites are one of the most common and successful types of insects on the planet. The number of mite species is still being determined by acarologists, scientists who study ticks and mites. There is hardly an ecologic niche that does not host a thriving population of mites. They are tiny insects that have evolved a near infinite number of survival strategies.

Spiders

Spiders
Spiders are common occupants of homes. Usually, the low number of spiders in a house do not cause a problem, but many people are afraid of spiders. Most house spiders are completely harmless, but some species bite, and some spider species are poisonous to humans.

Springtails

Springtail NEW
Springtails are insects in the order collembolan. Although they are in the insect class, being wingless having poor vision, they are more primitive than most insects. This leads some entomologists to believe they should have their own class, collembolan.

Ticks

Ticks
Ticks. Everyone who has ever lived in a temperate climate zone where tall grass and trees grow has dealt with ticks. These little pests are experts at sneaking on to your body and finding a free meal.
