Suburban Exterminating has made Bug ID easier than ever with our new App! You can download it for free through the Apple store, snap a picture, and it’ll email the picture and description to one of our entomologists.
Expert Bug Identification
Using our app, a customer recently emailed this message:
“Hi -found this bug crawling on the bed here in Melville. I don’t think it is a [bed bug], but could I ask you to just take a look at it? Not sure it you can tell from the picture. Thanks for looking at it.”
Our entomologist, Lynn Frank, quickly responded:
“That is an ant. Looks like what is called an odorous house ant—very common. Does not bite and does no damage to the structure. I can’t make out all details – [picture] is blurry, but definitely an ant. – Lynn.”
