Pest Guidebook

Why isn’t the pest I’m looking for listed?

The guidebook focuses on the most common pests in each category, season and region. To identify a pest not listed, use the Capture & Compare function to take a photo of the pest, then email it to the Spectracide experts.

How do I change my season and region to more accurately portray my location and the time of year?

Use the Settings menu on the home screen to adjust your season and region.

Which months are in each season?

Winter: January, February, March
Spring: April, May, June
Summer: July, August, September
Fall: October, November, December

Capture & Compare

What does the Compare button do?

The Compare feature helps you match your pest image to those in the guidebook. Once you identify your pest, you can read about it and find the appropriate solution.

I can’t find my pest in the guidebook.

You can email an image of your pest to the Spectracide experts and someone will get back to you with an appropriate solution for your pest problem.

I sent Spectracide an email but I haven’t heard back yet.

Please allow 72 hours for a Spectracide expert to respond to your inquiry.

UPC Scan & Learn

I’m getting a “Product Not Found” message.

Try holding your phone’s camera a little closer or farther away from the barcode to make sure the image is focused then rescan it. If the product is not currently in the market from Spectracide, it will not be in the database.


I have a suggestion for a new Pest Guide feature.
