Moth and Beetle Pests
Homeowners in the area may spot the following pests moving indoors to exploit more favorable conditions:
Indian Meal Moths
Adult Indian meal moths flying around kitchens typically indicate a problem. Once hatched, larvae live in, consume, and pollute stored grain and products until they mature. While the pests don’t carry disease, infestations result in costly food waste for El Paso residents.
Carpet beetle larvae eat materials like leather, wool, and feathers, so furniture and decor are prone to damage. The adults are harmless, but their presence often points to carpet beetle larvae, which damage items by their feeding, elsewhere in the house.
Warm weather in Texas is perfect for leaving windows or doors open and enjoying the breeze. Insects frequently use these gaps to move inside and infest kitchens. Common nuisance flies in El Paso include:
These insects feed on fermented foods such as overripe produce or organic matter found in drains. They also reproduce quickly, making fruit fly infestations difficult to control. The pests are mostly just a nuisance to homeowners, but fruit flies cause widespread damage to citrus crops in Texas.
Blow flies enter homes to consume meat or carrion. Finding the insects indoors usually indicates a dead rodent, bird, or other animal trapped in a wall void or attic. Because blow fly larvae feed on unsanitary items, they can bring disease-causing germs into El Paso homes.
Sylvia and I want to extend our thanks and appreciation to you and your entire staff in the El Paso office. Our termite infestation and the subsequent rebuilding of our sunroom and other parts of the house were a difficult time for us. Throughout the entire process, Orkin’s professionalism and dedication to customer service were above and beyond!

In March and April for 18 days and nights, every 5 or 6 seconds I have a sharp noise in my laundry room and spare room. I thought there were crickets breeding. I sprayed every day for about 10 days until I was getting a headache, even with open doors. I called Orkin and the Orkin Man came in less than an hour. Upon entering the room, he told me that it was the smoke detector and it needed a battery. I just can’t tell you what a relief that was. In addition, there wasn’t a service charge. It sure is good to know that there are still honest companies left. Also, this Orkin Man is the finest gentleman I have ever met.

In thirty years as a client of Orkin, our current Orkin Man is by far the most dependable and best we have had. I hope he will be with us for many more years.
