Ticks-Ticks are ectoparasites which means they live by feeding on the blood of birds, mammals, and sometimes amphibians and reptiles. Ticks can spread a number of diseases including Q Fever, Lyme disease, tocky mountain spotted fever, colorado tick fever, African tick bite fever, tularemia, Crimean Congo herorrhagic fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, paralysis, and many other diseases. The adult female tick can reproduce and lay up to 2000 or more eggs.

Fire Ants-Fire ant colonys produce mounds in areas where an abundant source of water is available. Fire ants will attack small animals and sometimes will kill them. Fire ants will first bite their victim just to get a grip so they can then sting and inject a toxic venom called Solenopsin. Fire ant stings are very painful, a sensation which can be similar to a burn from fire and the after effects of the sting can be fatal to people who are sensitive. Fire ants are very difficult to erradicate and will take the help of a Licensed Pest Control Professional.

Bed bugs are mainly active at night, but not exclusively nocturnal and are capable of biting and feeding on their hosts without being noticed.

The most common species of them all are the four species to the left: The American Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, German Cockroach, and Brown-banded Cockroach. These pests prefer warm conditions found in and around buildings. Cockroaches leave behind chemical trails in their feces, as well as airborne pheromones for swarming and mating. These chemical trails can transmit bacteria onto surfaces. Cockroaches also can pick up disease causing bacteria like salmonella on their legs and later transfer them on foods and cause food poisoning.
