Pests in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

At Cooper, we know everything about bugs and pests — their habits, where they live and breed, and how to get rid of them safely and effectively.  With Cooper’s commitment to training excellence, our highly trained technicians are well qualified to handle any type of pest problem.

Listed below are the types of pests that typically affect Philadelphia

Cockroaches – Cockroach infestations most often begin when someone unknowingly brings an infested item into a home or building. Poor sanitation, such as leaving out food or dirty dishes, can encourage an infestation since this type of clutter provides a good food source for the roaches. A cockroach problem can grow quickly because they can produce several generations in one year. As part of our service to control cockroaches, a Cooper technician will remove live cockroaches. Then we will apply baits and Insect Growth Regulators in areas prone to roach activity and where roach activity has been observed. The combination of these methods will reduce the current population and interfere with the ability of cockroaches to develop and reproduce. Cockroaches can be treated as a one-time service, or as part of a home maintenance plan.

Bed Bugs – Bed Bugs, unlike other insects that feed on blood, have never been proven to transmit disease to humans. However, bed bugs bites can cause itchy red welts in some people and are often confused with poison ivy or an allergic reaction of some kind. Many people also find the presence of bed bugs distressing and may have trouble sleeping. At Cooper, we specialize in bed bug elimination and we are the recognized national leader on the subject of bed bugs and for the treatment of bed bugs. If you suspect that you have bed bugs, please contact Cooper immediately.

Ants – You may experience many types of ant problems such as Carpenter Ants, Flying Ants, Pavement Ants, Odorous House Ants, Cornfield Ants, False Honey Ants, and Little Black Ants. Although these pests are more of an annoyance since they are not damaging the structure of your home like Carpenter Ants, at Cooper, we realize that you do not want these pests in your home which is why we offer services to prevent and eliminate ant problems.

Termites –Eastern Subterranean Termites are a common wood destroying insect found in the northeastern part of the United States. Termites fulfill an important role in our ecological system by speeding up the natural process of deterioration and help turn the dead wood into new soil. Unfortunately, termites don't know the difference between a stump in your yard and the wood in your home. At Cooper, we specialize in termite prevention and active termite management.

Stink Bugs – Though they are harmful agricultural pests, Stink Bugs are not harmful to humans. The primary issue with Stink Bugs is that they can invade your home in large numbers and become very frustrating when they are active. This is especially true because they have a tendency to get into and under things once they are inside. Cooper Pest Solutions offers a Preventative Stink Bug Service that will eliminate Brown Marmorated Stink Bug activity in your Philadelphia home.

Bed Bugs – Bed Bugs, unlike other insects that feed on blood, have never been proven to transmit disease to humans. However, bed bugs bites can cause itchy red welts in some people and are often confused with poison ivy or an allergic reaction of some kind.

Stinging Insects – The goal of Cooper’s Wasp prevention program is to prevent paper wasps from building their nests on homes, decks, swing sets, storage sheds, etc. By preventing nest building, the presence of Wasps will be greatly reduced. One treatment will prevent nest development for up to six months while we also specialize in wasp and bee hive removal.

Carpenter Bees- Eliminating Carpenter Bees and those ugly stains on your home can be a simple and easy process. Cooper offers a service that not only removes active Carpenter Bee infestations, but our service also prevents Carpenter Bees from returning and drilling new holes.
