Unfortunately for many Florida homeowners, ants are a problem all year long. Ants enter structures any time there are extreme changes to the weather in order to escape the heat or rain. They also come in to find a source of food and water. Since there are a wide variety of ant species found in Land O’ Lakes, 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 seek protected areas from predators to build hives and honeycomb structures. They find small entrance cracks in the structure of the building and that allows them to access wall voids. Wall voids may protect bees from predators, but hives and honeycombs can cause expensive damage to your home if left untreated. You may also notice signs of a bee infestation 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
Contrary to popular belief, bed bug infestations are NOT the result of uncleanliness. The reality is that anyone can get bed bugs because bed bugs are prolific hitchhikers. It can be as simple as sitting in an infested movie theater, or if your luggage was kept in an infested compartment like an infested cargo hold of an airplane or taxi trunk. They can even move through the shared walls and carpets of hotels or apartment buildings. Occasionally, other pests like rodents or wildlife can bring the infestation to your home.
Bed bugs are nocturnal ectoparasites that are attracted to the exhaled carbon dioxide of mammals. By tracking breath, they can move quickly to feed, most often striking at night while you sleep. They are the size of a pinhead and dark copper in color. Bed bugs are found in the corner seams of mattresses, in the seams of 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.
When you see one cockroach, there may be hundreds or even thousands more you’re not seeing in the wall or under heavy appliances. There are also several species of cockroaches found in Land O’ Lakes and over-the-counter treatments do not kill them all. DIY cockroach treatments fail often because consumers underestimate the size and scope of a cockroach infestation and unseen areas are left untreated. 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 have a short life-span and that makes them 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 can breed and drop eggs in a matter of hours. Their eggs can stay dormant for up to a year and they’re triggered to hatch by nearby heat and movement. This is why many DIY flea treatments fail. 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 recontaminating 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.
The warm and tropical climate of Florida may be the perfect conditions for mosquitos to thrive, 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.
Mice and rats can produce hundreds of babies in the span of one year. Rodents use wires, cardboard, and insulation to create their nests and when you have an unchecked infestation, those nests can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Rodents also don’t go outside to expel their waste, and those droppings can build up and create biohazard conditions in your home. 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.
Termite infestations cause millions of dollars in property damage each year in the United States. In Land O’ Lakes, we see 2 types of termites; dry-wood termites and subterranean termites. 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. 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.
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.
If curious local wildlife has made their way into your home or property, Pest Control Solutions & Services can help! 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.
