We don’t mean to scare you (actually we do), but your family isn’t the only one living in your home. That’s right, folks. Whether you see them or not, your home is a target to creepy, crawly, cringe-inducing critters. If they aren’t paying rent, it’s time to send them packing. To find out how, take a look at the five things that every homeowner should know about pest control.
From damage-causing termites, to disease-carrying rodents and everything in between, our Command Pest Control technicians encounter a lot of different types of pests each day. The worst kind, though? The stinging ones. More specifically– the clinch-your-fists, no-shame-in-crying, scream-like-a-girl stinging ones. We like to categorize these as simply “insects we hope to never encounter.” Take a look.
As pest control specialists, you might expect us to refer to all pests as “bad bugs.” Although we appreciate a good alliteration, that statement is simply untrue. Instead, bugs tend to differentiate themselves into different categories– the good, the bad and the ugly.
“That time” of winter has finally hit. The time when the temperature shifts from biting cold to full-scale gnawing cold, and all Arkansas natives retreat to the comfort of their homes to pile on blankets, light the fireplace and cheer on their favorite AFC or NFC teams in the Super Bowl. What if we told you though, that humans aren’t the only ones trying to find a cozy home to watch the big game in? That’s right– pests are looking for winter homes too! Learn about who your team’s opponent is and how to keep your home off their roster.

Summer has officially left town, and there’s a sense of celebration in the air because it took the season’s swarming mosquitoes with it. You can finally relax critter-free, right? While fall has its benefits, it unfortunately isn’t immune to pest problems. In order to treat these issues, it’s important to be able to identify them. That’s where our pest profiles come in. This month, meet the stink bug.
They’re big. They’re creepy. They may be living around your home. But they’re not the same. We often hear water bugs and cockroaches used interchangeably to label any creepy crawly that’s brown and unsightly. There are certain differences that set them apart though, and those differences can help you determine your next course of action.
Humans aren’t the only ones that enjoy a cool dip when the temperatures start rising. Here are five household pests that also find solace in the water. Unfortunately, that water might be closer than you think. The constant moisture coming from your bathtub, sink and toilet create the perfect environment for water-thriving bugs.
Between all the rain that we’ve gotten over the past month and the rising heat as summer approaches, Mother Nature has created the perfect environment for Arkansas’ unofficial state bird— the mosquito— to thrive.
