Trying to self diagnose an unidentified bug bite can be stressful, time consuming and difficult. Potential causes of your skin irritation are biting pests as well as non-insect causes that may be physiological or environmental. Let us help you by identifying pest problems or ruling out pests as a cause to symptoms.
Most biting pests are ectoparasites that are associated with a host animal. Ectoparasites like fleas, bed bugs, and mosquitoes are easy to identify through inspection and by the naked eye. Smaller ectoparasites like rodent and bird mites can be very difficult to find. Because of their morphology varied life cycles they can be difficult to distinguish from other non-biting mites. That is why our services focus on the source of biting pests – rodent, wildlife, or bird nests and signs of their presence.
