|Among the largest of ants, 1/4- to 3/8-inch long. Color varies depending on species, from red to black or a combination. The most common species is black.|
|Long, thin antennae that are often as long (or longer) than the body of the beetle; 5/8- to 1-inch in length. The beetle's body has a slightly flattened appearance, and its color may appear dark gray, but is usually brownish black to black. It is not often that a homeowner or pest control operator actually finds adult old house borers in a structure; the sound of the larvae feeding, exit holes and frass are the signs that usually point to an infestation.|
|Reddish brown, with long, narrow, flat bodies; 1/8- to 1/4-inch.|
|While all termites have long narrow bodies, they vary greatly in appearance depending on the termite's role in the colony. Subterranean termite workers are pale cream-colored and 1/8-inch long; soldiers have elongated heads with pincer-like mandibles; and primary reproductives (commonly called "swarmers" and the termites most often seen in the open) are dark brown or black and 1 inch long, with large whitish wings.|
When I learned that my elderly Uncle had a heavy infestation of bedbugs, I began looking for solutions. I tried several contractors, but one stood out from the others. My situation was very unique, as I live 250 miles away from my Uncle, and cannot be there all the time. It was such a relief to find Eagle Pest, as they coordinated everything for me. From initial contact, all the way through to a very challenging heat treatment and follow up visits, they were fantastic. I had total peace of mind in dealing with the Eagle Pest team, and am very happy to report that my Uncle is rid of bed bugs and back into a healthy way of life. Thank you so much, Eagle Pest, you folks are the best. A definite 5-Star rating in my book.

“Outside pest spray. They were on time, explained what they were going to do & what was needed in the future. After she had examined the exterior, decided what was needed, she did it with no delay.”

“Eagle answered our questions professionally. Technicians showed up on time and were courteous and cheerful. The price for heat treatment was expensive, but a lot less than the other heat treatment provider we interviewed--and unlike the other provider, the estimate was free.”
