Cockroaches are one of the worst, ugliest, creepiest and common pests that can invade your living space round the year. Though they are attracted to moisture, but they can infest your indoors during any time of the year. Roaches often come out looking for food like crumbs and other food residue that was left on the kitchen counter-top or dropped on the floor.

Not only just food from kitchen, roaches also feed on grease, glue, wood and literally everything they can find to eat. If you are using a roach spray, look out for places like your kitchen, garage, basement and bathrooms. While your insect or roach repellents may help to control their infestation temporarily, these elusive invaders require a professional exterminator because they have a long lifespan, they multiply quickly and it is impossible to kill them. Roaches can survive the worst conditions and they have built up their resistance to many common insect/pest killers on the market.

Fleas & Ticks

If you have pets in your home, it is very common to have fleas and ticks as well. However, they are also transferred to your indoor living space via other means such as your luggage, clothes, shoes etc. The best way to prevent fleas and ticks is to take good care of the animals you have in your home, but sometimes it becomes difficult to control them.

There are other pests as well that bring fleas and ticks when they enter your home. For instance, a rodent infestation in your home will guaranteed bring fleas and ticks with them.

If your pet is scratching himself like crazy after a morning walk or has too many red bumps over his legs and ankles, it is an obvious sign of these pesky pests. You can use a flea spray throughout your home, on your carpets, sofas and rugs for their treatment, or call a professional for help.


You hear the word spider and chills run down your spine with goosebumps all over your body. In Kuna, spiders are one of the most commonly reported pest infestations. While they do help in a way to eliminate other pests form your home as they feed on them, but their infestation in your living space can soon become a nuisance.

Say hello to this half-spider-half-scorpion bug. It is huge, it is fast and can be dangerous. Windscorpion is one of the species of giant arachnids crawling on the face of earth and they are most-fear inducing creatures. While windscorpions are mostly harmless, but if disturbed or threatened, they can bite you with their large chelicerae, leaving you in intense pain followed by severe skin infections and allergies.


What makes rodents worst type of pests is their ability to gnaw through almost everything they find. From electric wires in your house to the cash stored in your safe, these tiny pests can create a big mess if ignored. There are a number of house fire cases in which rats and mice gnawed the electric wires inside the house, which caused a short-circuit and the ultimate result was an entire house on fire.

Most of the rodents come looking for food and shelter in your house. While the best way is to use a trap to catch them and dispose them to a far away place, but sometimes these stubborn pests keep on invading your living space. In that case you would need a professional to help you get rid of them.


Wasps are extremely aggressive and they will attack you to protect their nest or if disturbed or threatened. They build their nests on the protected underside of soffits and eaves on homes, and removing the nest without any safety measures and skills can put you under serious danger.
