There are currently almost 200 recognized species of mosquitos in the United States with almost 3,000 recognized worldwide. Female mosquitos feed on the blood of humans, animals and other living creatures as they have the appropriate mouth parts to do so unlike male mosquitos. The blood is used to feed the female mosquito eggs while mosquitos of both sexes gain nourishment primarily from the nectar and sugars of plants.
Mosquitos are notorious for their itchy and annoying bites which are a result of the saliva from the insect. Anyone that has experienced a mosquito bite can attest to the discomfort and irritation associated with its presence. These nuisances not only deliver a nasty bite, they also are known for carrying dangerous disease-causing parasites and viruses that can have fatal consequences. The most well-known diseases these bugs are known for carrying and spreading include yellow fever, West Nile Virus, and malaria to name a few. These flying annoyances prefer to feed on the blood of farm animals, and have the tendency to cause sickness and weight loss in these creatures as well.
Ticks are non-insect arthropod arachnids closely related to spiders, scorpions, and mites. They are important to humans because they feed on animals and can pass diseases to people, pets, wildlife, and livestock. In Montana, ticks are capable of transmitting several tick-borne illnesses to people:
- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF)
- Colorado Tick Fever
- Tularemia (commonly known as "rabbit fever")
- Tick-borne relapsing fever
- Residential Single Family Homes
- Apartment Complexes
- Home Owner Associations
- Rental and Vacation Homes
- Recreational Vehicles and Camper

"Andy is amazing and so is CJ. What nice guys, and incredibly thorough with their work! We had a bat issue and were desperate to get them OUT. Well, out they are! It was SO satisfying to watch the last few bats get evicted. Bye, felicia! This was the ONLY pest service who seemed SANE when telling us about the bats. others told us to LIVE HAPPILY with bats peeing and pooping all over our new home. No thanks!"

"As many others have shared, the people that work here are knowledgeable, skillful and just great people.
