    I’ve recently found a bed bug on my desk chair. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to identify it’s sex therefore I’m not sure if it was a female. I immediately cleaned my room, checked all of my clothes/linens for bugs, swept, mopped, and poured rubbing alcohol on my bed and chair. I wasn’t able to...

    Hello Everyone, I'm having some serious deer issues and I want to fence a 160' stretch of my property. I received a quote from a local fencing company of about $3600 for 8' fencing with a 4' gate, etc. It's a bit high and I'm now adding this to my project list. I've been searching around the...

    I first saw this black tiny bug on my arm about a week ago in the living room. When I went to catch it it jumped. I thought nothing of it, thinking it was an isolated bug. I am in South Florida and thought all the bites on my legs where mosquito bugs. But two days ago I noticed the same bug...

    Hi there! I noticed what seems to be some wood damage to the soffit of my roof. Anyone have any idea what it could be? It seems to be the only part of the roof with damage. Could this be a specific type of pest? See the image below: Thanks in advance!

    I have seen signs that I might have mice in my attic. Noises in the attic are worrying & can be an indication that rodents or other wildlife may be living in your roof.

    I own a split level home in Maryland, USA. Just today, I noticed that in the downstairs level of my home, there were thousands of tiny pepper grain sized insects dead along the baseboard of the wall. They were mostly within about 8 inches of the wall, by the thousands, but they were all...

    Hi all I was wondering if anyone could shed light on these eggs I found in my home. They are brown/dark red in colour with ridges and about the size of a grain of rice.

My wife and I are building a house in Spokane through a company in the area. They buy lots, give specific...

    I'm from MA and I have never heard of red fire ants in this area however, a section of my yard has been over run with these ants. They are all carrying eggs, dead flys and dead black ants. They seem to be going into my neighbors yard at dusk. He doesn't keep up his yard and has lots of junk...

    I think Murphy's law of deployment is here... My house has a history of termites, not totally sure of when, but I would say about 6 years ago. The previous owners had the termites taken care of. Before buying this house in 2008, it had powder post beetles which were taken care of a few...

    I think the subject line says it all lol; The following are two pictures of the speckled green/brown mess that was behind my shower wall. It was only in this one area. I'm wondering if it's some kind of mold or mildew. Someone told me it is cockroach poop but I hope that is just crazy...

    I have a sunroom on the back of my house that has gotten a fly infestation. It started in late October and has continued to the present. Everyday I have to go out to it and kill at least 5 flys. They congregate where ever the sun is shining obviously for the warmth. There is no garbage out there...

    Hi everyone. I'm trying to navigate the different fly control systems out there to install something for the restaurant I work at. We keep our front doors open and often have flies enter the restaurant, and we are looking for ways to reduce the frequency of this happening. As of now, we have...
