Wasps are known for their unprovoked aggression. A single colony of wasps can contain more than 15,000 members – needless to say – an infestation could be a major problem.
Where to look for nests?
Common nesting sites include
- Under eaves (edges of the roof which overhang the face of a wall)
- On beams in your attic
- Within/under your homes siding
- Under porches.
Some stinging insects can build their nests in the ground, including yellow jackets.

Termites – they cause millions of dollars of damage each year !
Here at Millette Pest Control, we feel it’s important to educate you about Termites – what to look for and the key differences between a flying Termite and a Flying Ant.
As the temperatures begin to warm over the next several weeks, we will begin to see termite swarming activity.
Termite Swarmers are sometimes easily confused with Winged Ants.
Take a look at the picture below – Can you tell which one is a Termite and which one is an Ant?
The termite in the picture above is the top image. The ant is on the bottom. Connecticut Termite Exterminator Tip – Here’s how to tell the difference:
Termites: Termites have two distinct body segments with a waistline closer to the head than the tail.
Ants: An ant has 3 distinct body segments with two waistlines nearly equidistant from each other.
Termites: Termite swarmer wings are very long and narrow, extending a body length beyond the back of the abdomen. As you can see in the picture above, the wings of termites lay back very straight and parallel with the body.
Ants: Ant wings extend just slightly past the end of the body. Also, their wings lie at a slight angle to the body, away from the body at the bottom.
No matter what flying insect you see (especially inside or close to your home) it’s always good to get a second opinion. Our professional team of Termite Exterminators here at Millette Pest Control area ready to help. In fact, we have developed a Phone APP that makes it extremely easy for you to send us a picture for identification. Download below:

It’s starting to feel like Fall! As the nights get cooler and the days get shorter, this is the time of year when we start to see fall pests invade our homes for food and shelter. Here in Connecticut, there are 4 pests we see each year that cause problems for homeowners.
Spiders – While spiders are around in the Spring and Summer, we really start to see evidence in the fall as they spin webs and are much larger this time of they year.
Rodents – Especially House Mice – which may be one of the most common mammals in Connecticut – so it’s no surprise many homeowners are dealing with infestations at one time or another. During the fall Mice and Rodents begin to move indoors as the weather cools and they begin to search for food.
Stink Bugs – The cool seasonal changes in the fall trigger stink bugs to go in search of shelter for the winter. While stink bugs don’t bite – they can overwinter in larger populations inside a home and emerge in the spring.
Cluster Flies – Like Sting Bugs, Cluster flies are on the move in the fall searching for a place to stay during the winter. Cluster Flies resemble big houseflies and are found in groups on a sunny outside wall or indoors.
We protect what matters most! Millette Pest Control will help reduce fall pest problems. Whether it’s cleaning cobwebs or creating a protective barrier surrounding your home – you can rely on the experts here at Millette Pest Control.

The news of Zika virus, a disease causing pathogen spread to humans through mosquito bites, being found in the U.S. is quickly gaining momentum and receiving national attention from the media as human cases are being confirmed in states across the country, including FL, TX, NY, NJ and more. In addition to the illness associated with the virus, there is great concern about the virus’ potential effect in pregnant women as there is mounting evidence of a link to microcephaly, a congenital condition associated with incomplete brain development in infants.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued travel alerts for people planning to travel to countries and territories (in the Americas) with active Zika virus transmission. The CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) have come out in force to promote public attention to this matter and in a statement from the White House, “The President emphasized the need to accelerate research efforts to make available better diagnostic tests, to develop vaccines and therapeutics, and to ensure that all Americans have information about the Zika virus.”
