Extreme Bug Infestations

Sometimes we are faced with a problem worse than a few ants in a kitchen. Unusual cases on a large sale, notable for the depth of destruction they cause or the unusual pests they involve. We call these "Extreme Infestations," and they are a good reminder that a small issue can quickly grow out of control if not properly attended to by professionals.

In an effort to showcase Extreme Infestations, the National Pest Management Association has partnered with its members to share some stories from the trenches. Check out the bug infestation cases below (and then read our tips for preventing bug infestations to protect your home and property!).
