Carpenter Ants—These large ants build nests inside wood, though they do not feed on the wood like termites do. They are attracted to areas where condensation might collect, so check your windows, doorways, bathrooms, kitchens, drains vents, and laundry areas for possible signs of this insect’s presence. Ants are part of large colonies, so an infestation could involve hundreds, if not thousands of these insects in your home. They usually don’t bite and pose no threat to humans, but your home is a different story. They build tunnels in wood and can cause serious damage.


Ants are arguably the most productive insects that invade and infest homes. Every colony likely contains thousands of ants, and they can be on your lawn or even just a few feet from your home. Sometimes the ants find their way inside and decide to take up residence there. These pests can be difficult to exterminate because they like to stay hidden, whether it’s inside your walls, floors, ceilings, and the trees and soil outside. Our advice is not to try to handle this infestation yourself because if you’re only killing the ants you see, there are hundreds more you don’t see. This kind of problem needs the services of certified professionals, like our experts at Environ Pest Elimination. Our goal is to detect the source of the problem, locate the colony, and eliminate the infestation completely, so you have peace of mind with our effective long-term solutions.

Spiders have two main body parts, eight legs, and two pincers, which are venomous. They are among the most feared pests because several species exist that could be harmful or even deadly to humans. If you see spiders in your home and are unsure if they are dangerous, it’s best to call the professionals to have a closer look and get rid of the pests with their professional tools and sprays. We understand your valid fears and promise to protect you and your home from these unwelcome visitors.


Spiders can migrate easily anywhere, from tall mountains to remote islands, so they have no problem finding their way into your home. Using a small length of silky web, they can effectively invade any house or structure through cracks and crevices. Once inside, they will build their webs and feed on other insects. Even though they can be beneficial, most people are afraid or uneasy around spiders and would rather not have them in their homes. All spiders are venomous and can sometimes bite humans, and while most are harmless, some species can pose a significant safety threat. Examples of those potentially dangerous spiders in the Midwest include the Black Widow, the Brown Recluse, and the Yellow Sack. Therefore, most people are inclined to exterminate all spiders and repel them from their homes to prevent them from returning. When you have a spider problem, contact us at Environ Pest Elimination today.

Cockroaches - These insects are incredibly resilient and are adapted to survive. If you have an infestation of roaches, it is more of an inconvenience than a danger, though they can cause allergies and trigger asthma attacks, especially with young children. About 70 species of roaches live in the United States and this pest can spread over 30 different kinds of bacteria. It is unpleasant to have them in your home.


Cockroaches can move around easily to find places to nest, and because they are resilient and difficult to kill, they can thrive anywhere, including homes or businesses. Any property is susceptible to a roach infestation. They do tend to prefer areas that are warm and moist, which are usually close to water (within 20 feet or so). They are omnivores, so reducing their access the food or water is not enough to eliminate them. The best technique for getting rid of roaches is baiting, which involves putting a small piece of bait around the hotspots in your home where roaches are likely to gather, including the laundry room, bathrooms, and kitchen. Consult with our expert exterminators at Environ Pest Elimination, and we’ll implement the best approach to rid you of your roach infestation and restore the quality of your home.

Deer Ticks—These tiny ticks have black legs and feed off the blood of large animals, including deer, as its name suggests. However, they will also bite humans. It is difficult to know if you’ve been bitten by a deer tick or if you have them in your home, as they are incredibly tiny—no bigger than the point of a pencil. They tend to be found in hidden parts of the body, such as the armpit or groin. Unfortunately, they can spread bacteria that can potentially cause diseases like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Exterminate these pests if they’re in your home.


Ticks are parasitic arachnids that feed on the blood of animals, usually mammals. This includes humans, and ticks pose a potentially significant threat as they can spread disease. A tick bite can infect humans and animals with bacteria or viruses that can cause serious conditions like Lyme disease. Ticks can be a concern year-round, but they are most active during the warmer months, April through September, in the Midwest. Most ticks don’t have much interest in coming inside your house but may be brought in from the outdoors if unsuspecting people carry them on their skin or clothes. You need to be concerned about your pets attracting ticks, especially if they spend a lot of time outdoors. Brown dog ticks are the most likely to invade your home through small cracks or crevices, and if they lay eggs, you could quickly have a full-blown infestation. Call our experts at Environ Pest Elimination before that happens.

Silverfish - These small insects are not dangerous, but can still infest your home and trigger allergies and cause damage to your property, specifically paper products. Silverfish are wingless insects and they don’t bite or sting, so they don’t pose a direct threat to humans. However, it is still in your best interest to get rid of them so you protect your valuable property, like books, documents, photographs, and clothing.


Silverfish are a species of a small insect, and their name reflects the light gray color of their body and their tendency to move like a swimming fish. They are attracted to warm and moist areas in your house, like attics, basements, and crawl spaces. They are also drawn to food, so try not to leave out dirty dishes. These are resilient insects, however, as they are omnivorous and can go without food for a year. They also don’t need a water supply because they can collect atmospheric moisture. If you have a silverfish infestation, it is best to call in a professional exterminator. You don’t want to avoid dealing with this problem—although silverfish pose no threat to humans, they can destroy valuable paper documents, pictures, and books. So, if you want to protect your property, you should contact Environ Pest Elimination. Our expert services will deliver the results you want and remove your unwanted guests permanently.
