Common Pests in Baltimore & Montgomery County

Nobody likes uninvited guests—especially when they are creepy-crawly pests. Often times, you may not be able to identify the type of pest that has invaded your space. But, before you can rid your home or local business of these unwanted creatures, you have to know what they are.

To implement the proper pest control strategies, we need to identify the creature that’s causing your discomfort and, possibly, harming your home. Once we’ve identified the culprit, we can take action to rid your home of these pests for good!

At Brody Brothers Pest Control, we take time to create a pest control plan unique to your situation. Every bug and creature is different, so every plan we make to eradicate them from your property is going to be different too. Our team is made up of Maryland’s finest pest control experts, so with our help, you will be able to exterminate even the creepiest of creatures.

But first, let’s help you identify the common pests that may be lurking around your Baltimore home.


When ants invade your home, they can be a pain to get rid of. Every species of ant is a bit different.  Each of them behaves in a certain way and responds better to certain treatments, so if you are not identifying them correctly, your “do-it-yourself” method could be all for nothing.

The first question we will ask, and investigate, is: what types of ants are you dealing with? From acrobat ants to carpenter ants and more, there are a lot of species that could be wreaking havoc on your home. These include:

Rodents are more than just unpleasant. Living with wild rodents is unhealthy and unsafe, seeing as they can contaminate food, destroy walls and furniture, and gnaw on electrical wiring. If you think you see a mouse, it’s best to call an exterminator because we are trained to seek out and identify all of the points of entry for these creatures.

You may not know this, but mice and rats can find many different ways into your home. Depending on the type, they can squeeze through even the smallest of holes or cracks.

We know how to find and seal all of these hidden pathways to prevent reentry and have the resources to eradicate the ones already living on your property. If you have a rodent problem, call Brody Brothers Pest Control today!


Termites are worse than creepy-crawly bugs because they can cause serious structural damage to your home or commercial building. Having a termite infestation can be detrimental, and if you do not catch them quickly enough, your home or office may be unsalvageable.

If you believe you have a termite problem, it’s likely to be the Eastern Subterranean Termites, which are common in Maryland, Virginia, and along the East Coast. This species is known to eat cellulose that can be found in many items from mulch and tree stumps to paper and even your home’s wooden wall studs.

To identify this type of common pest, and create a plan to get rid of them, it’s imperative that you call a professional as soon as you notice signs of an infestation.

Bed Bugs

Does the phrase “good night, don’t let the bed bugs bite” bear a literal meaning in your household? Although bed bugs were almost eradicated a while back, they keep getting reintroduced due to frequent travel and other factors.

If you think you have bed bugs, don’t try to take care of it yourself. Because the bugs are so small, the infestation is often worse than what the eye can see. They reproduce quickly and the longer you wait the more bites you’ll keep getting night after night.

If you think your Baltimore home is infested with bed bugs, call the team a Brody Brothers Pest Control. Our IPM approach to bed bug extermination will help to eradicate the bed bugs from your home while preventing future outbreaks from occurring.

  • Insects, spiders, and small mammals can all be considered seasonal pests. These pests typically show themselves year round, but have peak times when you may spot them in your home! You’ll likely notice more pests in your home or business in the fall season, continuing into the winter, because of the cold. Bugs and rodents seek warm places and while in them, can cause severe damage. Preparing for seasonal pests with Brody Brothers Pest Control can prevent and control common pests that we see in Maryland year round!

    Common Pests in the Spring/Summer:

    Mosquitoes, stinging insects like bees and wasps, cockroaches, termites, ticks, ants, spiders, bedbugs, fleas, and flies are the typical spring/summer pests. While these pests mark the start of spring/summer they can also invade your home during the fall/winter months.

    Common Pests in the Fall/Winter include:

    Rats, mice, stinkbugs, spiders, cockroaches, bed bugs, and fleas are common bugs found in Maryland during the fall/winter months. Concealing gaps and holes in your home is a great way to eliminate pests from entering, and it also conserves energy bills. Pests get cold in the winter and seek warm shelter and our homes fit the need. By preparing and considering a monthly pests control company to come out to your home or business you can eliminate the headache of dealing with an infestation.

    We first identify the specific type of ants you have in your home. In Maryland, you likely have one or more of these kinds: acrobat ants, carpenter ants, odorous house ants, pavement ants or thief ants. Different types require different pest control services, and our experienced team knows how to effectively handle each of them.

    We’ve gained this knowledge by studying variations, biology, and habits of ant types, and so are able to easily identify those invading your home or business and develop the appropriate ant control plan.
