Cockroaches will nibble at book-bindings, photographic film, starched linen, leather goods, almost anything… fouling them with strong smelling scents.
A German cockroach can survive a month or more without food… but less than two weeks without water.
Butterfly wings are covered with tiny over-lapping scales. The beautiful, iridescent colors are created by reflecting light, and depend on structure, not pigment.
In some species of praying mantis, the female begins to eat the male while they are mating. She starts at his head and by the time she reaches his abdomen, mating is completed. By becoming a nourishing meal, the father provides a supply of food for the eggs that are his children.
A female house mouse gives birth to 6 young about 19 days after mating. She is ready to mate again in two days. She can produce 6 to 10 litters a year. Each of her young is ready to mate in two months. Remarkably, all her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great, great-grandchildren can have offspring in the same year. Two mice starting to breed on New Year’s Day could theoretically have as many as 31,000 descendants by December 31.
Caterpillars make juicy meals for birds, so they protect themselves by devising various disguises. Some look like bird droppings, others disguise themselves as twigs, and some match the colors of leaves. The eye spots on this caterpillar fools birds into thinking it’s a small snake.
Never squash a yellowjacket wasp near the nest. A dying yellowjacket releases an alarm pheromone that alerts its comrades. In less than 15 seconds, yellowjackets within a 15-foot radius will rally to the victim’s aid.
Rats can jump three feet straight up, and four feet outwards, from a standing position. They can burrow three feet straight down into the ground; chew through building materials, glass, and cinderblock; swim 1/2 mile in open water and against current in sewer lines; and, climb up inside the pipes with diameters between 1-1/2 and 4 inches. A rat’s teeth are so strong, it can bite through aluminum, lead and other metals.
The periodical cicadas of the eastern United States spend 17 years below ground as nymphs feeding on tree roots. Then they emerge together above ground. They change into adults, lay eggs, and after a few weeks die. We don’t see the next generation until 17 years later.
The song of the field cricket is temperature dependent; the tone and tempo drop with the drop in temperature. Count the chirps in 13 seconds, add 40, and you will have the approximate temperature in degrees.
Bumblebees can maintain a body temperature of 86 to 98.6 degrees even when the air is near freezing by a heat producing chemical process in the flight muscles.
Though bats are hated and feared, they may also be the single best controller of the insect kingdom. Bats may eat as many as 600 mosquito-size insects in an hour. An average size bat colony may eat 1/2 million insects in one evening.
The male cicada may be the loudest insect known. By vibrating the ribbed plates in a pair of amplifying cavities at the base of the abdomen, the mating sound of the cicada may be heard as far as 440 yards.

Best company. Fast service and friendly service.
Very good service. I highly recommend the Bug Man.
I had a great experience thanks to Bug Man Tech Kevin Hoss. Kevin was professional and thoughtful. He explained the procedure and addressed all my questions. He assured me that my pets were safe with the pesticides he was using. Besides the great customer service, Kevin alerted me to a skunk living under my shed, and a strong smell of gas coming from the outside meter. I called my gas company who arrived with in 15-minutes and fixed the leak. Not only did Kevin Hoss do a great job, but he saved the day!!!
Love Bug Man. By far the friendliest and most knowledable insect control around. Highly recommended!
fast and friendly service! came over and resolved my pest issue on such short notice. John Stephan is the man!
Kevin, the tech who came out to fix my mouse problem, was very friendly and helpful and clearly knew a lot about how to fix the issue. It was a much bigger problem than I thought, but he fixed it easily and quickly. I would hire them again for anything in the future. Excellent customer service.
Very professional, on time and affordable. Will call on The Bug Man again to handle my pest needs. Highly recommend this company for all your pest control needs.
John and his employees do a great job every time. They are kind, courteous, and professional. Anytime we have a problem, whether it’s with wasps, spiders, etc John comes and takes care of it. I highly recommend The Bug Man for all your exterminating needs.
Have used Bug Man several times now, they have always been very helpful. My family has a really bad spider problem and my Mom has really bad reactions to their bites. John and Kevin have both been great taking the time to spray all the window wells and outside to keep the spiders away.
Always timely, very polite and considerate, and both listens to concerns and responds well. Had a massive beetle problem and he not only got the ones I could see, but knew where to spray for ones I couldn’t see. Thank you Bug Man!
Bug man was great! Quick and professional. You know he cares about his customers and his work. His experience makes him one of the best in the business! Plus he’s locally owned and not a corporate business, where you’re just a number. Highly recommend!
Excellent customer service. Excellent technicians with great knowledge. No upselling at all.
I found the pricing to be reasonable and their employees to be genuinely pleasant to work with. Due to rainy weather the first treatment was unsuccessful but Bug Man was quick to come back out and the second treatment went much better.
Great customer service!
Very Professional. I called this service for advice after finding bed bugs in our apartment. They were so helpful and professional over the phone. They helped me with what steps I needed to take to get the problem taken care of.
Just a wonderful Company. Whatever you need they will help you with and they will give you honest answers. They won’t sell you anything you do not need.
I’ve always had a good experience. He always says if there are any issues to call and he will come back out. He is more than accommodating.
Very professional and polite explained the procedure clearly. I will have them back in the future.
I appreciate your service. Kevin Hoss is very efficient, knowledgeable, polite and caring. He says he knows my house better than I do. You have a very valuable employee, so give him lots of GOLD STARS.
Thank you for being so professional. We will pass your name along and we will be using you again
Bob L., manager of Christi Apartments was very impressed with the professional service provided by Kevin. The time Kevin took explaining to him and the tenants what needed to be done to take care of their pest problem. He wished he had employees like that working for him.
I appricate Bug Man, Inc. for coming out, giving us the estimate and taking care of the rodent situation. We never expected for the problem to be taken care of so quickly. I will be happy to recommend you to all my family and friends.
