A Unique Day In Photography – Exploring America’s Pests

Hello there. As a photographer, I like the idea of using my ability to explore the problems American’s face on a daily basis. It is undeniably true that everyday Americans are far more interesting than any other subject matter. Of course, it would be cliché to go out on the streets and photograph the homeless, street performers, or anyone else for that matter. So, I decided to do something that had never been done before. I decided to target a major problem in America that impacts homes throughout the United States. I spoke with the best exterminator Chicago & Best Bed Bug Chicago Exterminators Team with EZ Bed Bug Exterminator Chicago Experts their could find and learned more. Then, I headed out into the street.


For many people, cockroaches are a hideous creature. Don’t get me wrong. I do not keep roaches as pets. However, these critters truly take on a life of their own. They have a unique personality and they know how to survive through almost anything. Even as I ventured into abandoned homes, I was able to find roaches roaming around. This speaks to the hardiness of these creatures. I can almost guarantee they will greatly outlive the human population.


Rats are another common household pests, which will give homeowners a fright. They’re certainly not friendly and shouldn’t be petted. However, I still find these creatures to be absolutely fascinating. There is something weird about rats that make them surprisingly compelling. Perhaps it is their unkempt appearance or their constant struggle for survival? The struggle of the rodent closely resembles the struggles many Americans face on a daily basis. They work daily to obtain money for life’s necessities. Meanwhile, the rat does the same in its own hideous way. I only hope my photographs can emphasize the specific message I am attempting to portray.


The bedbug is yet another interesting creature, which will be sure to give you a fright. Nonetheless, I see bedbugs in a different light. They’re very intelligent and they know how to get the most out of people. To me, they also symbolize a large segment of the population. Bedbugs are like criminals, scammers, and thieves. They’ll sink their teeth in deep and they don’t care who they hurt. Unsurprisingly, the bedbug was my most difficult subject matter.

The pesky little critters are good at hiding and they forced me to remain in wait for a good period of time, before they emerged. Nonetheless, I got a few good pictures and I sincerely hope my message is clearly evident.…
