Pest Guide



In North Texas, ants make up the majority of local pest problems. Varying by species, colonies can grow very large. 

​Common types include:

  • Carpenter Ants

  • Little Black Ants

  • Odorous House Ants

  • Pharaoh Ants

  • Sugar Ants


Most likely to affect our four-legged friends, fleas and ticks can also latch on to us, exposing our bodies to diseases.

In addition to vet-recommended preventatives for your pets, we provide our safe interior and exterior treatments.


Cockroaches seek shelter from the outdoors and like to gravitate to dark locations.  Homeowners notice them in their bathrooms, closets, and storage spaces.

Common types include:

  • American Cockroaches

  • German Cockroaches

  • Brown-Banded Cockroaches



More of a nuisance, house crickets are scavengers that feed on plants, while producing a repetitious chirping sound. There are times in North Texas when they are everywhere!

Grasshoppers are found on every continent but Antarctica. Here in the Metroplex, they typically can be found in fields, meadows, and backyards. 



Not only are mosquitoes known for disrupting outdoor activities, but they are also carriers for diseases. Drawn to standing water and capable of laying up to 3,000 eggs in a lifetime, mosquitoes are one of the top nuisance pests in  North Texas.



Mostly nocturnal, rodents can enter a home through small spaces. They frequently enter structures looking for food and warmth. We recommend sealing openings, making repairs, and removing hiding places.

Common types include:

  • House Mice

  • Norway Rats

  • Roof Rats


Contrary to folklore, earwigs do not crawl into sleeping people's ears at night!

But their appearance can be startling. Mostly found outside under piles of lawn debris, mulch or in tree holes, they can gain entry to a structure through exterior cracks.

Pantry Pests

Flour beetles, mealworms, weevils, meal moths, and drugstore beetles are a few of the “pantry pests” that can travel home with you in foods purchased from the grocery store.



Spiders are not insects--they are arachnids.  In North Texas, they are in abundance! Many are beneficial and work to avoid us.

Common types include:

  • House Spiders

  • Garden Spiders

  • Wolf Spiders

  • Brown Recluse Spiders

  • Black Widow Spiders
