Pest info


Cockroaches are members of the insect order - Blatteria. Approximately 4500 species of cockroaches exist, 30 of which are associated with human habitations. Of those, 4 species are major pests. Among the best known types of cockroaches are the American Cockroach(Periplaneta americana), the German Cockroach(Blattella germanica), the Asian Cockroach(Blattella asahinai), and the Oriental Cockroach(Blatta orientalis).

Fire Ants

Fireants are members of a group of stinging ants composed of over 280 species worldwide. A typical fireant colony will produce large mounds consisting of small groups of queens or a single queen, males/drones, and workers. Many other ants bite and then spray acid on the wound. Fireants bite to get a grip and then inject venom consisting of a toxic alkaloid called solenopsin. The sensation can feel like a burn caused by fire.


Termites live in colonies that can number in the millions of individuals. An average colony will contain workers, soldiers, nymphs, males/kings, and one or more queens. Mostly feeding on dead plant material, about 10% of the estimated 4000 species cause serious damage to structures, forests, and crops.


A Mosquito's life cycle exists of 4 stages. Egg, Larva, Pupae, and Adult/Imago. Females lay their eggs in standing water, such as salt marshes, lakes, puddles, or vegetation. They may also use man made containers such as buckets, old tires, or any other object that can hold water. The first 3 stages of the life cycle are aquatic and usually last 5-14 days, depending on the ambient temperature and mosquito species. After the adult mosquito emerges from it's pupae it's lifespan is usually 4-8 weeks. Males typically feed on plant juices and nectar, while females need a blood meal before producing eggs. Around 3500 species exist around the world and many are capable of transmitting infectious diseases to humans.


Flea is the common name assigned to the insect order - Siphonaptera. Fleas are wingless insects which have mouthparts adapted to feed on blood meals. They are external parasites which feed on mammals and birds. Long legs adapted for jumping enable the flea to leap over 200 times its own body length. Fleas go through 4 life cycle stages - Egg, Larva, Pupae, and Adult/Imago. Adult Fleas can survive up to one year without feeding. After a blood meal, the adult female can lay approximately 45-50 egss per day up to approximately 600 in a lifetime.


Tick is the common name for arachnid insects in the family - Ixodoidea. Ticks are external parasites that live on the blood of mammals, birds, and sometimes reptiles and amphibians. Often found in tall grass, ticks will attach themselves to a host with their cutting mandibles and then insert a feeding tube into the skin. Ticks can detect heat and carbon dioxide respired by a nearby host. Multiple diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever can be transmitted by ticks.


Bedbugs are small parasitical insects in the family - Cimicidae, the most common type being - Cimex lectularius. Feeding exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals, the term bedbug comes from the insect's perferred habitat which is usually in human bedding. Though not strictly nocturnal, bedbugs do most of their feeding at night. In the developed world these pests were largely eradicated in the 1940's but have seen a resurgence since approximately 1995. Increased foreign travel, exchange of used bedding and furniture items, and resistance to pesticides have all contributed to this growing problem.


A member of the Brachycera suborder of flies, Musca domestica is the most common species of domestic fly. Accounting for 90% of all flies in human habitations, this pest is found all over the world and can be carriers of serious diseases. Females are capable of laying approximately 500 eggs in batches of up to 150. Emerging from their eggs in as little as a day, larvae(maggots) feed on items such as decaying organic material and feces. After a few days the maggots crawl to a cool dry environment and transform into pupae. After emerging from the pupae stage adults can live for up to a month in the wild.


Spiders are member of the family of insects known as Araneae. Eight legged and equipped with fangs that inject venom, spiders are the largest order of Arachnids and among all other groups of organisms rank seventh in species diversity. 40,000 species of spiders exist on every continent except Antarctica. Female spiders may lay up to 3,000 eggs in silken egg sacs. Baby spiders go through all of their larval stages inside the egg and emerge as spiderlings. Some species of spiders actively care for their young and protect them. Spiders, like other antropods, have to molt to grow in size. Most species have lifespans of from one to two years, although some species in captivity have reached lifespans of twenty years. Spiders use silk emitted from spinnerets which are each connected to an individual silk gland. At least six types of silk glands exist, each producing a different type of silk. In addition to web building to catch prey, spiders produce silk for a number of reasons including safety ropes, nest building, parachutes, and wrappers for eggs.


The common mouse, Mus musculus, is a member of the order of mammals know as Rodentia. Mice are primarily nocturnal animals with poor eyesight. They adjust for this by having extremely good hearing and sense of smell. Mice are considered harmful pests because of their potential to spread disease and cause damage to human possesions, dwellings, and food. Female mice can have litters of up to 14 young and can have 5-10 litters per year. Mice usually have lifespans of under a year in the wild because pf predation and environmental exposure.


Rats are members of the superfamily of long-tailed rodents known as Muroidea. Members of the genus Rattus, the two most common rats associated with humans are black rats and brown rats. The brown rat, Rattus norvegicus, is one of the most common and well know rats. Usually active at night, rats are considered serious pests because of their ability to spread disease and cause damage to human habitations, food, and possessions. A female rat can produce up to 5 litters a year of 14 individuals. Maximum lifespan can last up to three years with the average being one year.

WDI Reports Q & A:

Q. Why Inspect?
A. Each year thousands of homes and businesses are attacked by termites and wood-destroying insects. Home Owners/Buyers and Commercial Real Estate Owners/Buyers should be aware of any potential problems with a current property or a new property before investing in it.

Q. Does the WDI Report cover Termites only?
A. No, the report lists other wood destroying insects as well. It is sometimes referred to as the “Termite Report” simply because termites are the number one wood destroying pest in the United States. The report lists other insects such as, but not limited to:

  • Carpenter Ants – Normally Associated with areas where moisture and wood are present.
  • Carpenter Bees – Since Carpenter Bees are wood borers they can cause major damage to structural wood.
  • Powder Post Beetles – Tend to be very small in size, around 1/8″ long and reddish-brown in color. While in the larval stage, they cause damage to both soft and hard wood.

Q. What does the inspection entail?
A. licensed professional technician will perform the inspection. All visible areas of the structure which are accessible will be inspected. If after visual inspection an infestation or damage is discovered, proper control and repair measures will be noted on the inspection report. Since the inspector cannot see into walls or under carpets, an infestation report does not guarantee the absence of infestation or damage.
