Pests are the bane of many people’s existence. They are not only annoying and downright disgusting (at least most of them are), but many insects and bugs also carry diseases that can leave a lasting effect on your and your loved one’s health. That’s why we started InsectCop – to help you combat pests on your own and without having to spend a fortune.

The history of InsectCop

It all started in the summer of 2014 with our former owner Karen Thompson who, fed up with getting bitten by mosquitoes every time she went outside, decided to do something about it. So she researched and tested many different mosquito control products to rid her backyard of mosquitoes until she found what works.

But once her mosquito problem was under control, she realized that she is not the only one struggling. So in the fall of 2014, InsectCop was born. And what started out as a mosquito control blog has now grown into an authoritative and ever-expanding insect and pest control advice website that covers the best methods of how to get rid of a variety of different pests.

InsectCop now

Although our site might have started as a mosquito control-only blog, recently, we have expanded our range of interests into other pests, too. Right now we cover everything from how to control mosquitoes, ticks, and ants, to how to get rid of spiders, termites, flies, bed bugs, fleas, silverfish, wasps, and moths. But soon, we will be launching into other pest control topics as well.

On, you will not only find informative articles on all kinds of pests and pest control methods, but you will also see product reviews explaining what exactly each product does and when should you use it.

In each pest category, you will find handy product guides that will let you quickly find the product that is best suited for combating the particular pest problem and then narrow down which of all the products found on the market will be the most efficient for your situation. As well as useful information about the specific pest and how to best get rid of it.

Currently, we have over a million yearly readers from all over the world who use our website to find answers to many different questions starting with how to control mosquitoes in their backyards to what are the best ways to keep various insects away from themselves and their pets.
