Cockroaches may become pests in homes, schools, restaurants, hospitals, warehouses, offices, and virtually in any structure that has food preparation or storage areas. They contaminate food and eating utensils, destroy fabric and paper products, and impart stains and unpleasant odors to surfaces they contact. Brown-banded Cockroach: The brown-banded Cockroach is a small species of cockroach, measuring about 5/8 in (10 to 14 mm) long. It has been known to cause problems in hospitals by emerging at night to feed on bodily fluids, thereby risking cross-infection. Camel cricket: Camel crickets constitute nuisance in buildings and homes, especially basements. They are usually “accidental invaders” that wander in from adjacent areas. They may reproduce indoors, especially in situations that provide continuous dark, moist conditions, such as a basement, shower or laundry area, as well as organic debris to serve as food.Cat flea: The cat flea is a small sucking insect. The cat flea, and all other fleas, is compressed laterally, resulting in an extremely thin insect that can be quite hard to find in an animal’s coat. Treating the host and the host environment is a good measure for control. Field roach: The Field cockroach, Blattella vaga, prefers outdoor locations and is usually found in leaf litter and plant debris. Field cricket: Field cricket are plant-eating insects. Field crickets prefer to live outdoors, but will move inside when environmental conditions become unfavorable. The method of entry of these insects into buildings includes open doors and windows as well as cracks in poorly fitted windows, foundations, or siding.German cockroach: The German cockroach, Blattella germanica, is the most common indoor species, especially in multiple-family dwellings. They prefer food preparation areas, kitchens, and bathrooms because they favor warm (70° to 75°F), humid areas that are close to food and water. Severe infestations may spread to other parts of buildings. This species reproduces the fastest of the common pest cockroaches. Mosquito: Some mosquitoes also attack invertebrates, mainly anthropods. Though the loss of blood seldom is of much importance to the victim, the saliva of the mosquito often causes an irritating rash that is a serious nuisance. Much more serious though, are the roles of many species of mosquitoes as vectors of diseases. In passing from host to host, some transmit extremely harmful infections such as malaria, yellow fever, and filariasis.Pennsylvania wood roach: The Pennsylvania wood roach is a common species of cockroach in eastern and central North America. They are attracted to lights at night and may gain entry indoors. Large numbers may also be found in rain gutters of homes. Pennsylvania wood cockroaches feed primarily on decaying organic matter. Both female and male Pennsylvania wood cockroaches have been found under shingles and on the inside of garages. Oriental cockroach: The oriental cockroach, Blatta orientalis, is sometimes referred to as a water bug or black beetle. It lives in dark, damp places like indoor and outdoor drains, water control boxes, woodpiles, basements, garages, trashcans, and damp areas under houses. At night, oriental cockroaches may migrate into buildings in search of food.Psocids: Psocids are small, scavenging insects with a relatively generalized body plan. They feed primarily on fungi, algae, lichen, and organic detritus.Shrew silverfish: Shrew silverfish is a wingless insect that inhabits moist areas, requiring a relative humidity between 75% and 95%. In urban areas, they can be found in attics, basements, bathtubs, sinks, and showers.

They have been observed consuming meat, spiders, fruit and insects. Adults will also drink flower nectar, which they feed to their larvae.
Blowfly (bottle fly): Sanitation through removal and proper disposal of garbage, carcasses and similar breeding media is probably the most satisfactory method of limiting blow fly populations. Most blow fly larvae feed in carrion or other decaying organic matter. They often infest wounds of sheep, goats, cattle, and other animals. Unkempt sheep are particularly subject to attack.
Brown dog tick: The Brown dog tick can feed on dogs and humans alike. Infestations in houses can explode to very high levels quickly. Typically, a few ticks are brought into the house or kennel, often on a dog that has been away from home. The early stages of the infestation, when only a few individuals are present, are often missed completely.

If there’s a bowl of fruit on your kitchen counter, there’s probably a fruit fly or two looking for a way into your home to get to it. Because these insects are so tiny, they can get in through window screens or crevices around windows or doors. These insects are quick to reproduce upon entrance into your home.
Honeybee: All honeybees live in colonies where the workers sting intruders as a form of defense, and alarmed bees release a pheromone that stimulates the attack response in other bees. Honeybees are known to communicate through many different chemicals and odors, as is common in insects, but also using specific behaviors that convey information about the quality and type of resources in the environment, and where these resources are located.
House centipede: Some species of centipede can be hazardous to humans because of their bite. Although a bite to an adult human is usually very painful and may cause severe swelling, chills, fever, and weakness, it is unlikely to be fatal. Bites can be dangerous to small children and those with allergies to bee stings.
House fly: House fly is the most common of all domestic flies, accounting for about 91% of all flies in human habitations, and indeed one of the most widely distributed insects, found all over the world. It is considered a pest that can carry serious diseases.
House mouse: House mice can sometimes transmit diseases; contaminate food and damage food packaging. Although the American CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) gives a list with diseases transmitted by rodents. Only few of the diseases are transmitted through the house mouse.
Humpbacked fly (Phorid fly): Phorid flies are found worldwide, though the greatest variety of species is to be found in the tropics. Most commonly, they feed on decaying organic matter. Because they frequent unsanitary places, including drainpipes, they may transport various disease-causing organisms to food material.
Indian meal moth: Indian meal moth is a common grain-feeding pest found around the world, feeding on cereal and similar products. It may be referred to as flour moth or grain moth.
Mediterranean flour moth: The Mediterranean flour moth is a common pest of dry plant produce – especially cereals – and found around the world. Millipede: Millipedes do not bite, and their defensive secretions are mostly harmless to humans – usually causing only minor discoloration on the skin – but the secretions of some tropical species may cause pain, itching, local erythema, edema, blister, eczema, and occasionally cracked skin. Eye exposure to these secretions causes general irritation, and potentially more severe effects such as conjunctivitis and keratitis. Moth (drain) fly: Moth flies are small true flies (Diptera) with short, hairy bodies and wings giving them a “furry” moth-like appearance. Some species are a very important group medically, transmitting various tropical diseases, but most importantly Kalaazar leishmaniasis.
Norway rat: The Norway rat is one of the best-known and most common rats. With rare exceptions, the brown rat lives wherever humans live, particularly in urban areas, and is a very destructive rodent.
Springtail: Springtails are well known as pests of some agricultural, and some specie has been shown to cause severe damage to agricultural crops. They may sometimes be abundant indoors in damp places such as bathrooms and basements, and have been found to cause skin infections on human skin. The experts at Joe blue can help with their control.
Strawberry root weevil: Strawberry root weevils are known to feed on strawberries, as well as some other plants. Occasionally the larvae cause serious damage to seedlings and young transplants in plantations and nurseries. The use of insecticides is one great way of controlling these insects.
Webbing clothes moth: Webbing clothes moths are considered a serious pest, as they can derive nourishment from clothing – in particular wool, but many other natural fibers – and also, like most related species, from stored foods, such as grains. The use of treatments and insecticides are great way of control.
