Hornets, yellow jackets, bees, and flies are often associated with ruining a family picnic or making the inside of your home feel unclean or dangerous. Flies can be embarrassing, not to mention they spread unwanted diseases. Wasps can scare away children and guests in fear of a painful sting or allergic reaction. All-Pro knows just how to keep these scenarios from happening. We make sure your home goes from unappealing to guests to unappealing to pests.
Wasps are distinguishable from bees by their pointed lower abdomens and the narrow “waist,” called a petiole, that separates the abdomen from the thorax.
Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, known for their role in pollination and for producing honey and beeswax.
Flies are insects with a pair of functional wings for flight and a pair of specialized hindwings called halteres for balance.
Similar in appearance to their close relatives, yellowjackets,hornets are distinguished from other wasps by the relatively large top margin of the head and by the rounded segment of the abdomen just behind the waist.
Yellow jacket is the common name in North America for predatory social wasps with distinguishible black and yellow colors.
Apart from locating the flying insects themselves, our professionals at All-Pro can seek out and identify the nest as well. This will eliminate the root of the problem and keep the flying insects from lingering around your home. Once the inspection is complete, insects have been identified and the infestation severity determined, our professional pest control experts will design a customized insect control plan around your specific need.
The first step for All-Pro is to determine whether or not activity is currently present at or around your home. This helps us properly determine how to customize your plan.
No two plans are 100% alike. Each home has unique structural and layout features that require us to determine how best to protect your home. We select the right placement, treatments, and ongoing services to help provide a pest-free environment.
No plan would be complete with a “set it and forget it” approach. A proper Game Plan requires ongoing maintenance and inspections to make sure that your home stays pest free and there are no new threats that have emerged.

Carpenter bees chew tunnels in wood to make a nest cavity in which their larvae can grow. To prevent the bees from making the holes, staining or painting the surface will help deter them.
If the holes are already present, a dust product may be applied into the holes and then the surrounding wood treated with a liquid spray product. Such treatments may need to be repeated after a couple of months to further deter the bees.

A bee or wasp’s nest by your structure can lead to a number of issues. Not only do they pose a threat of pest infestation, but bees and wasps can also cause damage to your building, both inside and out. As temperatures rise in the summer months, these pests become more of a nuisance and potential damage or safety risk.
Since both require different methods of treatment, it is critical to identify whether you’re battling gnats or fruit flies. If the insect is brown with red eyes, it is most likely a fruit fly. Fruit flies breed in fresh fruit – especially bananas – and garbage.
If the insect is tiny and black with long wings and spindly legs, it is likely a fungus gnat that lives in the wet soil of potted plants.
All-Pro will help you to identify the pest and recommend control solutions.
