OUR IDENTIFICATION

Need to know what insects you just found crawling on your kitchen counter? Worried about what pests may be damaging your property? Curious about the existence of bed bugs? The identification of insects and other pests can be tricky. That's why Nature's Own Exterminating provides a pest and insect identification guide to help you identify what is bugging you.

Even if you are a skilled bug identifier, our Pest Library is not a substitute for professional pest control. If you do find signs of a pest infestation in your home, contact a licensed pest professional promptly. We will inspect your home, confirm the species, and recommend a course of action to keep your family safe and healthy.
