Insects and Spiders
AntsCarpenter ants get their name from the damage they cause to wood. As they damage the wood they expel wood shavings called ‘frass’. A mature carpenter ant colony can have up to 2000 members.
SpidersThese eight legged creepy crawlers have caused fear, called Arachnophobia, to young and old, male and female for generations. Most species of spiders are harmless and feed on other insects but their ugly appearance is reason enough for most people to call Antimite!
TermitesFounded in 1933, Antimite has been protecting St. Louis area homes and businesses from termites and other unwanted pests. Ernie Ferrario and Tod Williams are today’s co-owners of Antimite, and started their pest control careers in 1981 and 1984 respectively. You can’t teach experience. With over 60 years in the industry, Tod and Ernie areÂ prepared for any situation they might encounter in the field. Customers trust Antimite to provide the experience and expertise to protect their homes and health from unwanted pests.
Bed bugsBed bugs have returned with a vengeance and are difficult to eradicate. At first, the signs are not very noticeable and sightings are rare.Â As the population increases, bites and sightings become more common. The solution requires time consuming preparation by the homeowner and an extensive treatment program which far exceeds typical pest control services.
FleasFleas are small, wingless insects flattened from side to side. An adult female lays 25 to 40 eggs per day and can lay hundreds of eggs in her lifetime. Eggs of the flea can become adult fleas in as little as three weeks in ideal conditions. Fleas are most active mid summer to early fall.
CockroachesTypically found in kitchens and bathrooms, this most common roach can carries several varieties of bacteria. Female roaches carry an egg case or capsule which contains anywhere from 30-40 eggs. It takes about 2 months for these newborns to mature to the point where they can start having babies. At that rate it doesn’t take long for a major infestation to develop.
SilverfishSilverfish are pests of paper but will also feed upon fabrics. They are fond of older books and manuscripts as well as the paste of wallpaper.
BeesCommonly mistaken for bumble bees the pesky pests bore holes into decks,Â wood siding, and other wooden materials on the exterior of homes. The holes are about a half inch in diameter. The female carpenter bees then lays eggs in the galleries of the wood. While very menacing, these bees rarely sting.
WaspsThese solitary wasps build their nest out of mud. They attach the mud om walls inside garages, along sides of windows, and on exterior walls of homes. Because of their solitary nature they are not very aggressive and stings are rare.
Yellow JacketsYellow jackets are extremely protective and leave painful stings to anyone who may accidentally disturb them. They are most noticeable in late summer to early fall when their numbers are at the greatest and can reach into the hundreds or even thousands. Nest are commonly found underground, under siding, and behind brick walls to provide shelter for the colony.
RodentsThese rodents typically enter homes in early fall as the weather turns cold. Garages are common entry points as well as improperly sealed openings for pipes and electrical conduit. Signs of mice include droppings and gnawing on food products.
