Carpenter Bee

They are not social insects and typically live alone. These pests create circle shaped holes usually on the undersides of wood pieces. They use their abdomen to drill into the wood surface a distance equal to her body length. The bee then makes a right angle turn and runs parallel to the grain of the wood up to a distance of 4 – 6 inches typically. They prefer usually weathered and/or unpainted wood pieces, and will usually target cedar or redwood timbers.


Clover Mites

These mites are commonly found in early to late spring. They feed on plants and grasses. They tend to infest healthy lawns that get regular water and fertilizer promoting plants growth which they feed upon. Do to their small size, they can gain entry into an home/business no matter how well it is sealed. These pests are harmless once inside a building and will quickly die.

Pill Bug

These bugs require high amounts of moisture, and are generally found in damp areas such as mulch beds, under rocks, and near gutter downspouts. They are not active in times of high temperatures because they will de-hydrate. They will occasionally enter homes through door thresholds, especially sliding doors on ground level. They feed on rotting plant matter and decaying animals.



Adults are about 1/16” to 4 ½” long. Usually cylindrical in shape and worm-like in appearance. Most body segments bear 2 pairs of legs, except first 3-4 segments and last 1-3 segments.

Millipedes have high moisture needs. They are often found in decaying vegetation such as under trash, piles of grass clippings, mulch and leaf litter.


Indian Meal Moth

These pests are grain feeders who will attack a variety of foods such as; pasta, flour, cereals, dog food, dried fruits, and chocolate. They are generally found in the pantry or kitchen area, where above foods are stored. The most common way in which they are introduced into the home is through birdseed. It is uncooked and may carry larvae, eggs, or adults. It is best to buy seed in small quantities and freeze when possible for long-term storage. These moths may also enter through infested product from your grocer. Check above listed items carefully for cocoons, live insects, or damage packaging. Generally, the longer something sits on the shelf the more susceptible it becomes.


House Fly

This is the most common fly to be found in this area. They are usually 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch long and dull gray in color. They have clear wings that are longer than their body, and protruding eyes, which are quite noticeable.



The adult Earwig is about 5/8” long and dark brown (reddish hue) in color. They have forceps at the end of their bodies that use to grasp prey. They have functional wings but rarely fly.

Earwigs feed on insects, plants (fruits) and garbage. They typically are found in mulch or behind loose bark on trees.


Box Elder Bug

Adults primarily have black body with reddish orange markings and young adults are red and black body. Nymphs are primarily red. The adults are approximately 1/2 inch in length. They have wings and are good flyers.

Overwintering adults emerge from hibernation typically late April, early May. Primary host plant boxelder trees, but may occur on silver maples.

I have been with blue chip for quite a while, and they have never disappointed. Anytime I have any type of problem whatsoever I make a quick and easy phone call and they respond almost immediately. I don't think I have ever waited more than a day or two when I really needed to have somebody out. Their technicians are very professional and very thorough. I would so recommend blue-chip to my friends and family and anybody else that will listen to me.

Tony came to my home and inspected for bugs. We suspected brown recluses and were correct. He informed me of their habits and what to expect and then did a thorough spray of two different chemicals and then glue traps to leave behind. He also left glue traps for me to use in his absence. I was Very pleased with how thorough and informative he was for me.

I have had a few interactions with Blue Chip. After purchasing a 20+ year old home, we have discovered some insect and potential rodent problems. Blue Chip has come out on the same day, or within a day, to help address every concern. Each technician has been professional, courteous, and prompt. Thank you!

Antony is the best- he has helped me two years in a row. Personable yet professional. He really knows what he is doing and pays great attention to detail. I would've never known where the ants were coming from but he investigates until he finds the source. I like how blue chip has a 30 day guarantee in case any ants pop up after he leaves. Haven't had a problem with this though. Highly recommend this company!

I manage an apartment complex that blue chip is contracted with. It started off rocky, due to lack of having the same technician that knew the ongoing issues. Now that we've had a consistent technician that comes to us bi-weekly it's been an amazing working relationship. Our technician is knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely helpful. Previously I was told to call a rival company for bedbug inspections as well, their inspector was more efficient too. We've had nothing but awesome experiences with all of their technicians and the billing department as well. Highly recommended in all aspects.

We had a rodent problem. We tried Orkin first, but they only left snap and glue traps around the house. The problem got worse, and they were hardly able to trap anything. Blue Chip's mouse bait took care of our rodent problem quickly, and was safe to use around our pets unlike the stuff you buy at the store. In my personal experience, the customer service representatives haven't always been the most helpful, but the technicians know what they are doing and totally make up for it. I've only seen a mouse once or twice since we started with blue chip, and they've always come right out to fix it for no additional charge.

Blue chip representative Chris Emery was very helpful and knowledgeable. He explained what he was going to do and why. He suggested ways to better protect my house from pests such as clearing leaves and to consider using a dehumidifier in my cellar.
