Pest Identification Basics

When you encounter a strange pest, after taking some photos, the first step is usually going straight to the internet for help with identification. You’re probably searching for an answer to the question, “What is this bug?” 

Patton Termite & Pest Control put together individual pest pages to help you through the process of finding out what bugs you are seeing so you can take the best course of action. Just click on the different pests from the drop down menu to learn more. Some bugs are harmless and some can cause serious infestations in and around your home. Above all, these infestations can be potentially damaging to your home, health and sanity.

Integrated Pest Management Programs

Integrated pest management programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property and the environment.

Proper pest identification is necessary before any treatment is done. We need to consider many different things when treating pests. Pest biology, behaviors, breeding, habitat and infestation level all factor into the pest control service process.

Responsible Pest Control Service

By considering the factors above (pest biology, behavior, breeding, etc.) before treatment, we can make sure we are using the correct materials in the right places. This consideration allows us to use materials responsibly and efficiently. As a Green Pro Certified company, Patton Termite & Pest Control relies on Integrated Pest Management solutions for pest infestations.

The pest identification pages will help you identify the type of pest you are seeing in Wichita, Kansas or surrounding areas. However, it is best to bring your findings to the attention of a trained professional like Patton Termite & Pest Control to solidify the treatment plan.
