Other pests


  • It is often difficult to distinguish between fleas and bedbugs. Unlike bedbugs, fleas can jump. They also attack pets as opposed to bedbugs.
  • The bite of the flea is painful including irritation and itching. They spoil themselves on the blood of their host.
  • After each blood meal, female fleas lay 4 to 8 eggs (0.5 mm long).
  • The dehumidifier is an effective way to exterminate flea colonies.
  • Defend yourself against fleas, call extermination professionals to get rid of them.


  • Unlike butterflies, the mere presence of spiders at home can be very disturbing for our comfort and well-being standpoint.
  • Spiders only bite humans when they feel threatened, but they can still cause you allergic reactions if they do.
  • In September, spiders appear in greater numbers and try to find a warm home to spend the winter there. They feed on other insects which they intercept in their web.
  • Our technicians are used to exterminating spiders. They will put their training and years of experience at your disposal.

Beetle: Lycte – Anthrène

  • Beetles is an order of insects that forms the most diverse group of insects on the planet, with more than 300,000 known species, including 9,000 identified in Canada.
  • Ladybugs are beetles. However, we are not allowed to exterminate them since it is a protected species.
  • Each type of species provides advantages for our ecosystem. Having said that, some unfortunately ravage gardens.
  • Beetles are identified by their rigid forewings and their shells. They all have crushing mouthparts and a strong jaw.
  • They feed on a large number of foods ranging from plant matter to animal matter.
  • Regardless of the type of beetle, our team is accredited to make sure to evacuate them from your home.

Woodlice – Porcellions – Wood Bugs

  • Contrary to popular belief, woodlice are crustaceans and not insects. Some types of woodlice curl up to escape danger.
  • Woodlice are useful for gardens because they eat decaying plants.
  • When they enter the house, it is to find a warm and humid place. A dehumidifier can sometimes bring their invasion to a halt.
  • A significant infestation of woodlice is often a sign of the presence of a large colony near the building.
  • If you would like to get rid of them, our team of certified technicians will be able to eradicate them permanently.

Rice weevil

  • The rice weevil is a beetle in the same order as the ladybugs. It is easy to identify since it has 4 reddish spots and is no more than 3 mm in length.
  • This insect loves seeds, pasta, rice, cereals, flour and legumes. The female pierces the grain of rice to place her egg in it.
  • To exterminate them, they must face very high or very low temperatures. Never throw a bag of rice in the trash since you encourage their multiplication.
  • To solve the problem, once and for all, trust the expertise of our certified extermination technicians.

Earwigs – forficule

  • With an elongated shape, the forificule is a nocturnal insect with a size of 8 mm to 2.5 cm fitted with a kind of forceps for grinding. It is protected by a hard exoskeleton.
  • The earwig is not dangerous to our health. Its invasion does not cause damage or illness.
  • However, it can be a big nuisance for your flowers and other plantings.
  • In Quebec, it makes its appearance in July and remains active until October. Most males do not survive winters, even when they are indoors.
  • For some people, the earwig presents psychological discomfort since it crawls and climbs the walls. The 6-month guarantee of our professional extermination services ensures your well-being and comfort. Do not hesitate to call us in the event of an invasion.
