Pests are a major problem for homes and businesses in south Mississippi. From ants to rodents, the warm climate of the area provides an ideal environment for pests to thrive. Unfortunately, this means that pest infestations can be frequent and difficult to control without proper knowledge and experience. 

The best way to fight back against these pests is by having a thorough understanding of their behavior and habits. Knowing what kind of environment they prefer, how they reproduce, when they're most active, and what methods work best for eliminating them can make all the difference between quickly eradicating them or dealing with an ongoing pest issue.

Mosquitoes are small, flying insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. These pests can carry and transmit diseases, such as West Nile virus and Zika virus, to humans. Signs of a mosquito infestation include the presence of mosquitoes, especially during the evening and early morning hours, and itchy mosquito bites. 


Rodents, such as mice and rats, can spread diseases and cause extensive damage to homes and businesses. These pests often enter buildings through small cracks and holes and can quickly reproduce, leading to a major infestation. Signs of a rodent infestation include the presence of droppings, gnaw marks on furniture and wiring, and scratching sounds in walls and ceilings. Our rodent control team uses a variety of control methods, such as traps and bait, to get rid of rodents long-term.


Termites are small, social insects that feed on wood and other cellulose-based materials. These pests can cause extensive damage to homes and businesses, which can be costly to repair. Signs of a termite infestation include the presence of termite swarmers (winged insects), mud tubes on exterior walls, and damaged wood. At Holifield Pest Management, we offer termite control services that use baiting systems and liquid treatments to get rid of termites and put a stop to wood damage.
