MISTAKEN PEST IDENTITIES

by termite7

    Many customers seem to have their own names for different kinds of “household pests”, based on what they’ve heard over the years from family or friends.  As a result, Pest Control Companies have to read between the lines, in order to properly identify the pest that they’re trying to describe over the phone.

    The most common household pest questions are in reference too……

 

 

   ORIENTAL COCKROACH “aka” WATER BUG

 

 

 

   AMERICAN COCKROACH “aka” PALMETO BUGS …. (common name in the South)

 

  

 

   PILL BUGS or SOWBUGS “aka” ROLLY POLLIES 

 

 

 

    HOUSEHOLD ANT “aka” PISS ANTS(the owner’s favorite term)

 

 

  

 

   POTATO BUG “aka“ JERUSALEM CRICKET
 

 

    These are just a few of the household pests we have to identify on a daily basis.  As always, a thorough inspection of the house and property is the best way to approach the problem.

 ****  IF YOU HAVE AN UNUSUAL NAME FOR THE COMMON HOUSEHOLD PEST….. LEAVE US A COMMENT AND WHAT YOU CALL CERTAIN PESTS.
