Bed Bugs

Bed bugs can make you dread going to sleep. Their name comes from their tendency to nest in bed sheets and mattresses. Most active at night, these tiny, reddish insects feed on human blood, leaving their victims covered in itchy red marks. Don’t put up with these pesky home invaders. Call Pest Authority of Chattanooga for a thorough, long-lasting bed bug removal.

Bees & Stinging Insects

Ooltewah, TN is home to 74 stinging insect species including carpenter bees, sweat bees, European hornets, and red paper wasps. Although bees are an important part of healthy ecosystems, they can be extremely dangerous to those with allergies. Along with other stinging insects like hornets and wasps, bees are liable to swarm in large numbers and will return to their home location if not properly removed.
