These pests may infest any part of the home. They will generally be found in attics and basements, but can be found in kitchens, baths, and even cedar shake roofs. They can survive for weeks without food and water, but actively look for food sources. They can feed off of paper, wallpaper and wallpaper paste, and some species will eat rayon, artificial silk, and linen.


Pharaoh Ant

Workers are small, only 2mm long; it is one of the smallest ants you’ll encounter in Missouri. They are light yellow in color with darker marking on the body. Because of their small size, they can get into the tiniest of cracks and crevices and enter any structure..


Pavement Ant

Pavement Ants are mainly exterior pests, coming into homes for food and water. Many of the Ants you will see inside are simply foraging for these things. These ants live in colonies of 3000 – 4000 ants. They will occasionally nest indoors in wall voids and behind insulation.


Oriental Cockroach

These insects are very nocturnal and spend most of their time hiding in cracks and crevices. They prefer moist areas and small spaces without much light. This makes them very hard to find and even more difficult to control. They are generally introduced into homes and businesses through foundation cracks, expansion joints, under siding or through gaps in foundation that allow utilities to enter. They will eat a variety of things from starches, decaying organic material to garbage.


Odorous House Ant

Colonies may be composed of several hundred to 10,000 ants. Inside, these ants usually construct their nests in wall voids, many times in close proximity to food and water sources such as the kitchen and bathroom. These ants prefer sweets, but also eat foods with high protein content and grease.


German Cockroach

These insects are very nocturnal and spend most of their time hiding in cracks and crevices. They prefer moist areas and small spaces without much light. This makes them very hard to find and even more difficult to control. They are generally introduced into homes and businesses through paper products. They will eat a variety of things from glue to tooth paste to everyday foods.

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.
