Our Premier Pest Control Service includes complimentary annual rodent and termite inspections.
The warm tropical weather in Florida creates the perfect conditions for ant infestations. Ants will enter structures any time there are changes to the weather in order to escape the heat or rain and to find a source of food and water. Since there are a wide variety of ant species found in Palmetto, our licensed technicians will perform a thorough inspection first to determine the type and scope of an ant infestation. Our technicians will recommend a comprehensive treatment plan based on their findings and your budget. For the best long-lasting results, we recommend starting our Premier Pest Control service to keep ants out of your home all year.
Bees find small entrance cracks in the structure of the building to find protected spaces like wall voids to build hives or honeycomb structures. Wall voids may allow them to stay safe from predators, but they can damage your home if left untreated. You may even notice signs like a sticky yellow substance (honey) leaking from the walls in your home. If you suspect you may have a beehive in your home, do not attempt to remove it yourself. Give us a call and we’ll send one of our state-licensed technicians to remove the hive and/or honeycomb from your walls.
Bed Bug Detection & Control
Most people believe that bed bugs are the result of uncleanliness, but that’s simply not true! Anyone can get bed bugs because bed bugs are prolific hitchhikers. You can bring them home after sitting in an infested movie theater, or if your luggage was in an infested compartment while you were traveling like a taxi trunk or cargo hold of an airplane. They can even move through the shared walls and carpets in hotels or apartment buildings. Sometimes other pests like rodents or wildlife can bring them into your home.
Bed bugs are nocturnal ectoparasites that are attracted to the carbon dioxide mammals exhale. They can track your breathing and strike most often at night while you sleep. They are the size of a pinhead and dark copper in color. Bed bugs are commonly found in the corner seams of mattresses, used and new furniture, or in clothing or carpet. They typically bite the soft spots of underarms, sides, backs, and legs. Many people don’t know they have bed bugs until they find small blood stains on their sheets.
There are a range of different species of cockroaches found in Palmetto and each one requires a different treatment approach when removing an infestation. Over-the-counter treatments are typically sold as a one-size-fits-all, but they often fail because consumers assume all cockroaches are the same. Consumers also underestimate the size of a cockroach infestation because they originate in unseen areas. Before cockroach treatment begins, a technician will need to diagnose the size and scope of the infestation. We use a variety of methods to control cockroaches, but you will need to keep the space fully clean and decluttered to ensure that we have full access to treat the infested area.
Fleas are a very difficult pest to remove by yourself. Once you think you have removed the problem, more pop up and the infestation starts all over again. Fleas move quickly through their life cycle and they breed and drop eggs in a very short time. Many DIY flea treatments only kill the adult fleas, leaving eggs behind for the cycle to continue. Flea eggs are triggered to hatch by sensing nearby heat and movement. They can also stay dormant for up to a year. Fleas plant their eggs in soft areas like carpet, grass, and sand. All it takes is a dog trotting through the yard, or a quick vacuum of your carpet to trigger thousands of hatching flea eggs.
The best way to remove a flea infestation is to treat the whole house interior and exterior using treatment methods that destroy flea eggs as well as the adults. We also recommend having your pets treated with a flea bath while the service is occurring or immediately after to avoid re-contaminating the home. For the best results, we also recommend starting our regular quarterly treatment plan for your yard so your family or pets don’t bring them in again after your first service.
Mosquitos may be the most common pest in Florida, but that doesn’t mean you should have to tolerate their incessant biting. We offer 2 mosquito control programs; mosquito reduction or organic mosquito repellant. Both services begin with a thorough inspection of your property to determine the sources and scope of the mosquito infestation. Once the inspection is complete, our technician will recommend a comprehensive treatment plan based on your needs and budget.
Rats and mice are prolific breeders that can produce hundreds of babies in the span of one year. Rodents chew wires and destroy insulation in the home to create their nests and their droppings can be a biohazard. Rodents can also introduce other pests in your home like fleas, mites, hookworms, ticks, roundworms, and even tapeworms.
Rodent control starts with a thorough inspection to determine the entrance points of the rodents and the size of the infestation. Our technicians will recommend an exclusion service to cut off those entry points and a treatment plan to remove the rodents already in the structure. We will also remove infected debris and sanitize the infested area.
Each year in America, termites cause millions of dollars in damage to structures. There are 2 types of termites found in Palmetto; dry-wood termites and subterranean termites. Subterranean termites burrow through mud-tunnels and infest structures buried in the soil. They can compromise the safety of the building by weakening the support system in the foundation. Dry-wood termites have wings and swarm exposed wood beams like eaves, deck covers, doorways, and window frames. They are often identified by the puncture holes and wood shavings found at the base of wood structures.
Before we can treat termites, we will need to perform a comprehensive termite inspection. Once we know the type of termite infestation, we will recommend a treatment plan based on your needs and budget. We can also provide termite inspection reports for escrow.
Palmetto is home to an array of curious wildlife that often finds their way into our homes and businesses. We use a wide variety of humane wildlife removal techniques to remove them from your home and return them to the wild. After a thorough inspection, our technicians will recommend a treatment plan customized to your wildlife infestation and budget.
