If left unchecked, ant control can become extremely challenging. Colonies can increase from just a few ants to a major problem in your home. Not only can they cause serious illnesses when they get into your food, but some ants can cause expensive structural damage to your home.
Many species of roaches look to be the same, however, all species have different reproduction rates requiring highly specialized treatements. Over-the-counter products drive the infestation deeper into your home, making it harder to get rid of them for good. If you have cockroaches always with a professional to prevent further infestations.
The American Cockroach, also known as a water bug, or palmetto bug, usually resides outdoors near water, ie. drains, sewers, and trash bins. They are the most abundant domestic species of cockroach and are a reddish brown in color.
The German cockroach is a notorious, world-wide pest, usually found in cracks and crevices in food storage areas. These brown or tan striped pests are much smaller than the American roach, but they are mostly known for their unbelievable reproduction rate – one female can generate up to 30,000 cockroaches in a year!
Oriental Cockroaches are larger than German, but are darker in color and more shiny than American roaches. Like the American roaches, they like moist conditions however, they are not as discouraged by cooler temperatures. These outdoor pests frequently invade homes searching for food and water, but leave behind a nasty smell and are considered to be the “dirtiest” of all cockroaches.
Crickets are an annoyance in the home, not only for their sound but they can cause damage to your home and fabrics. They hide in cracks and crevices within your home, making them nearly impossible to find and difficult to remove. Save your sanity by calling the professionals at Robertson’s Termite and Pest Control to remove crickets from your home or office.
Due to how quickly fleas multiply, they are not easily restricted by over-the-counter products. Trust the local professionals to design a treatment plan that will last longer and be far more effective in protecting your family.

Asian Lady Beetle
Native to Asia, the first sign of these pests were in the south in the late 1980’s. They have rapidly spread across the nation. In the fall, these pests tend to plague homes and office buildings looking for refuge from the colder temperatures of winter. While they pose no threat to humans, they emit an unpleasant smell, can stain surfaces, and may cause allergic reactions in certain individuals.
Flies can carry diseases like tuberculosis, diarrhea, and other foodborne illnesses, posing serious health concerns for you and your family. Keep your living areas tidy is the first, and most important key to ensuring that your home or office is free of flies and other annoying flying insects.
Wasps and Bees
Did you know that more than 500,000 people are sent to the emergency room after being stung by wasps or bees? Removing bees and wasp stingers can be extremely dangerous and should only be completed by a trained professional.
Ticks are generally carried into homes by family members and pets. They can transmit Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and Tularemia. They are commonly spotted around homes and buildings.
Stored Product Pests
Stored product pests, also known as pantry pests, are usually carried into the home in dried products like flour, oatmeal, cereal, and pet food. Often, these insects are enclosed in the packaging during manufacturing. They tend to chew through the product packaging and into the cracks of your cabinets to develop and breed. They can make food smell or taste bad, which is often the first indication of a problem.
While harmless for humans, Silverfish can wreak havoc on your closet, books, bath products, and more. Not only will they chew through materials, they can also leave unsightly stains. They are generally found in dark, damp areas like bathrooms, under sinks and in your garage.
Black Widow Spider
Black widows are predominantly found in the southern United States. These areas are more fitting for their life cycles and movements. Black widows prefer dry and dark places and will seek warm residences in winter. An distinctive trait of the black widow spider is its comb foot. This row of strong, curved bristles is located upon the hind pair of legs and is used to pitch silk over capture prey. They are a recluse, socializing only during copulation. Black widows are nocturnal and spin webs during the daytime. They can sometimes be seen hanging upside down in their web, exposing a telltale hourglass abdominal marking. This marking is bright red and signals danger to predators and attackers.
Brown Recluse Spider
The brown recluse spider is found in the central southern part of the U.S., from Texas to the western most part of Florida. The brown recluse spiders are shy and rarely bite unless provoked. Bites usually go unnoticed until effects manifest a few hours later. The most telltale characteristic of brown recluse spiders is the presence of a dark, violin-shaped mark on the dorsum of the arachnid’s light brown or yellowish-brown cephalothorax. Due to this marking, brown recluses are also commonly known as fiddle-back spiders. To positively identify a spider as a recluse, both the eyes and fiddle marking must be seen, since other spiders may possess one or the other characteristic alone.
The most common non-venomous spiders in Kansas include the golden garden spider, wolf spiders, jumping spiders and long-jawed orb weavers. Regardless of the species, spiders have eight legs, two body regions, no wings or antennae. Some spiders like damp spaces, are found in basements, crawl spaces and other wet parts of buildings. Others like dry, warm areas such as subfloor air vents, upper corners of rooms and attics. They hide in dark areas.
