All About Bugs

Welcome to Hulett Environmental Service's insect library! If you are looking for information on bugs, such as ants, termites, roaches, and spiders, then you have found the right place on the web. We offer detailed information on insects that are found all over the United States, and especially on pests located in South Florida; the bug's paradise.

We also address health and sanitation concerns posed by certain bugs and pests, such as rats and mice, and offer tips on how to prevent them from entering your home. In the end though, it is always best to contact a trained professional such as Hulett to address your pest concerns.

Hulett's bug database gives detailed information on two problematic insects: ants and termites, namely the drywood, formosan, and subterranean termites. Ants are real pests, but termites are responsible for more than $700,000,000 in costs to consumers in South Florida each year for damage and control. On a country wide level, they cause more damage than hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires combined! They are often known to cause extensive damage to homes long before they are discovered, which is why it is so important to have your home inspected by one of Hulett's trained professionals.

Fire ants, another nasty pest, have become a serious menace in the southern United States. These ants are particularly aggressive and are literally a force to be reckoned with: Fire ant mounds can contain multiple queens, have upwards of 500,000 or more individuals, and can reach densities of 200 to 800 mounds per acre!

Besides providing detailed information on ants and termites, Hulett's insect library also includes tips on how to tell the difference between an ant and termite alates (since they are commonly confused by homeowners), also known as "swarmers." Alates are what these insects are referred to when in the winged reproductive stage. They are often confused for one another as they are similar in appearance, so knowing what you are dealing with will help you determine which steps to take to avoid problems down the road.

Hulett offers you a click-by-click directory of the pests you are likely to encounter as well interesting facts about bugs. For instance, read how the Acrobat Ant (not to mention the Confused Flour Beetle) got its name. Learn which fly helps in solving crimes. Read about caring for a bee or wasp sting. Find out the difference between the American, Asian, Australian, Cuban, and German roaches, and most importantly, how to keep them out of our homes. And much, much more! There is lots of interesting and helpful information on, and getting yourself acquainted is just a click away!
