The Pest "Most Unwanted" List | Legacy Termite & Pest Control, Inc.

The Pest "Most Unwanted" List

On a quarterly basis, we will inspect your home, inside and out, and apply treatment as needed for all manner of unwanted pests:


Ants are one of the most persistent nuisances in homes; they can enter from the tiniest cracks and soon build nests attracting thousands more. Fire ants are infamous for their painful, burning bites.

Rats and mice

Rodents can chew their way into your home through almost anything but solid metal. Not only do they carry fleas and infectious disease, they also gnaw on furniture and bite through electrical wires.


Their cobwebs are unsightly and some species bite, causing painful sores that sometimes require medical treatment. The two most poisonous species of spiders in the United States – Black Widows and Brown Recluses – are active in our state.

Ticks & Fleas

Deer ticks feed on many types of mammals, including people. They're dangerous because they can transmit Lyme disease to dogs and people. Fleas like pet and human blood, and they can jump from your pet’s fur or bedding onto your skin. Some people develop a bad reaction to flea bites. Intense itching can lead to scratching and skin infections.

Stored Product Pests

Stored Product or Pantry pests like beetles, weevils, and moths can invade your pantry contaminating beans, flour rice, and a variety of spices.


Nothing says “pest” like roaches and other creepy-crawlers that invade our homes. Roaches can contaminate food and food preparation areas.

Stinging and biting insects

Bees, wasps and hornets often colonize trees and shrubs and build nests in the ground. Some bees are protected species. Please contact a Legacy professional if you encounter a stinging pest around your home. 

Crickets and other bugs

Crickets will eat pretty much anything in their paths, from your garden plants to your clothing. Silverfish are destructive to food, paper, books and fabrics. Carpet beetles can multiply rapidly in your home.


Flies carry bacteria from the rotting material they feed upon and can spread germs throughout your home. Besides that, they are just plain annoying.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs get their name from their habit of hiding near beds, which allows them to feed on human hosts while they sleep. Bed bugs were mostly eradicated in the developed world for many years. Several factors led to their resurgence in the 1990s, including increased international travel and a lack of public awareness about prevention. Today, one out of five Americans has had an infestation or knows someone who has encountered bed bugs.


One of the best-known summer pests, mosquitoes breed in stagnant water or soft soil. There are about 170 different kinds of mosquito species in North America alone. Mosquitoes are vectors of numerous diseases including West Nile virus, malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever and encephalitis.
