They include moths, weevils, and small beetles. We inspect for pantry pests and have solutions to prevent them through our Once-A-Year Pest Protection Program.
Pillbugs, also known as sowbugs and rollie pollies, are attracted to damp environments. Their diet includes decaying organic matter, which can lead to potential sanitation concerns. We provide year-round control of pillbugs through our Once-A-Year Pest Protection Program.

Spiders can and do bite humans but two well-known spiders are dangerous to humans – the Black Widow and Brown Recluse. Their venom is neurotoxic, which affects the nervous system. An important part of controlling spiders is the elimination and disruption of their webs and a reduction of their food supply. We provide year-round control of spiders through our Once-A-Year Pest Protection Program.
Fleas are a nuisance for pets and humans alike. In addition to carrying disease, their bites can cause intense itching and skin irritation.

Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding habits. They can wreak havoc on paper products, books, clothing, and even wallpaper, causing irreversible damage over time.

As a defense mechanism, Millipedes release chemicals with unpleasant odors, that can cause minor skin irritation.

Though some wasps are more aggressive than others, most wasps will only bother you if they feel threatened. Keep a safe distance from nests and if you do find yourself near a wasp, remain calm. Flailing, loud noises or sudden motions may make a wasp more likely to sting. If a wasp nest needs to be removed, give us a call to have the nest safely taken out. We provide year-round control of wasps through our Once-A-Year Pest Protection Program.
House crickets are attracted to food crumbs and can contaminate your living spaces, posing a risk to your hygiene and health. They can also keep you up all night with their chirping! Taking action to remove house crickets promptly can help preserve the comfort and cleanliness of your home.

Centipedes have a preference for damp and dark environments. This leads them to inhabit basements, bathrooms, and crawl spaces, where they can multiply rapidly. While rare and not usually harmful to humans, their bites can still cause localized pain and irritation. Safer Home Services provides year-round control of centipedes through our Once-A-Year Pest Protection Program.
Fabric pests, such as clothes moths and carpet beetles, can cause extensive damage to textiles, fabrics, and other valuable materials.

Often mistaken as fruit flies, drain flies are drawn to moisture and drains that aren’t cleaned on a regular basis. While inherently harmless, drain flies can become a huge problem when they turn these areas into their breeding and hatching grounds. Our pest control experts efficiently locate and treat these designated breeding sites. And we’ll even keep drain flies out year-round through our Once-A-Year Pest Protection Program.
Fungus Gnats are not only a nuisance but can also pose various health and hygiene risks.

Earwigs are attracted to moisture, which can lead them to congregate in bathrooms, kitchens, and other wet areas. In addition to posing a potential hygiene issue, their presence can also be a nuisance in living spaces, especially when they emerge unexpectedly. Swiftly address and eradicate earwigs from your home with our Once-A-Year Pest Protection Program.
