Pest Identification

Pest Identification Library

The vast majority of insects, arachnids, and small animals are beneficial creatures that prefer to avoid human interaction completely.

These animals should be protected and respected for the important role they play in the balance of nature. Other critters such as carpenter ants, termites, bed bugs, rodents and cockroaches can pose structural or public health risks when they invade human dwellings. In these instances, these animals must be controlled effectively and responsibly. For purposes of identification, our collection below includes both beneficial and potentially harmful or destructive critters.
