Mosquitoes are considered an occasional invader since they aren’t around all year. Maybe there is standing water in your yard, or a certain plant that attracts them. Leitchfield Exterminating, Inc. uses an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to exterminate this potential dangerous insect.

IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment.

Our skilled team offers safe and effective mosquito treatments backed by nearly 50 years of experience. Let us improve your outdoor fun by making your yard more comfortable.


Wasp have a slender body with a narrow waist, slender, cylindrical legs, and appear smoothed-skinned and shiny. Yellowjackets, baldfaced hornets, and paper wasps are the most common types of wasps encountered by people.

Yellowjackets, baldfaced hornets, and paper wasps make nests from a papery pulp comprised of chewed-up wood fibers mixed with saliva. Yellowjackets and baldfaced hornets nests consist of a series of rounded combs stacked in tiers.

Yellowjackets commonly build nests below ground, in trees, shrubs, under eaves and inside attics or wall voids. Paper wasps build nests under any horizontal surface and are commonly found on limbs, overhangs, eaves of buildings, beams and supports in attics, garages, barns, sheds and other similar places.


While some believe bees fly in through an open window, that is more than likely not happening. Bees tend to go toward light and therefore, may be getting in through a crack in a chimney or attic. Finding dead bees on a window sill is very common due to the bees flying toward the light once they are trapped in your home, thinking they are going to get out. Having bees start a colony inside the walls of your home is a problem not only because many people are allergic, but also because bees can attract other pests. Also, the larger a hive gets, the harder it is to remove. Call Leitchfield Exterminating, Inc. at the first sign of a bee problem.
