One of the most common insects in this area, and everywhere really, is the cockroach. These insects are incredibly resilient and adaptable to their surroundings. This makes them extremely difficult to get rid of once they have infested a home. If there is a water source in a dark, isolated area, these insects will make their way to it. And since the cannibalize each other, they will remain in a particular area and will continue breeding. By the time a homeowner actually sees a roach, it usually means there are hundreds, if not thousands, in their walls or somewhere in their home. An experienced exterminator can do everything possible to get these insects out of your home.

Another common problem for homeowners is an ant infestation. These pests find their way in through a crack in the wall or a loose window screen and make their way directly to a food source. Once a food source is identified, ants then leave a trail for others to follow. Suddenly, some crumbs on the table have become a feeding frenzy for an ant colony. An ant exterminator will find the entry point, seal it, and work to keep these ants out of your house.

Carpenter bees are another common insect, especially for homeowners with a deck. These large, yellow bees are commonly found around decks, wood trim, wooden playground equipment, etc. These make their colony in the wood and can cause serious damage. While they almost never sting, they are extremely unpleasant to deal with.
