Can you help me identify the insects in my single wide trailer?

My husband and I live in a single wide trailer, and I know we have roaches and termites. Also, there is another bug. The bug is like a sticker that hits you and when you take it off, its green and oval. When on clothes, it's like a sticker (light in color), when it's wet it's like a space ship with a green dot. I can't get them out of the laundry. When I sprayed for fleas, I got these bugs. I don't even know what else is in the house. I need help!

Answer:

Unfortunately, without seeing the insect we have no way to identify it. We recommend you either call a professional pest control company and have them come out and do a free inspection (most companies offer a free inspection/identification) or take samples of the insect to your local cooperative extension office to have the insects identified. Once you have the insects identified, we can help you select the products you will need to eliminate them. As for the roaches, we have put together a roach control kit that contains all of the products we recommend for effective roach elimination. In order to recommend what products you need for termites, we will need further information. Do you have a current infestation? If so, where? Do you have dry-wood termites or subterranean termites? If you are not sure of the answers to these questions, you could always call out the pros for a free inspection.
