Boynton Beach, FL Pest Control
Boynton Beach has it all: warm weather year-round, predictable precipitation and easy access to open water. These are also the perfect living conditions for many insects and rodents, which are notorious for bugging Florida homeowners. Fortunately, Hometown Pest Control has the tools and years of experience to help you keep Mother Nature outside. Read below to learn about common pests in Boynton Beach and how we deal with them.
Rats and mice have long been a bane of humans and have historically been responsible for the spread of deadly diseases like the Black Plague. What makes rodents particularly threatening to homeowners is that they come with a lot of baggage. Fleas and other parasites often ride on rodents' fur, so if you have rodents, you probably have other pests.
Rodents can easily chew through wooden walls, floors, and ceilings, so damage can quickly add up. If they get into the interior electrical wiring, they can also chew through that, leaving you without power. In worse case scenarios, this could result in an electrical fire. Larger animals like raccoons are fond of occupying attics, and their feces and urine can cause irreparable damage and create unsanitary living conditions if not dealt with.
We can protect your home by installing special rodent-proof screening to seal off entry points such as pipes and vents. If rodents have already invaded, we have a variety of traps that we install and monitor. We will remove the dead rodents for you as well. We also offer attic clean-up and insulation replacement for particularly bad infestations.
Everyone who lives in Florida is vulnerable to termites. These wood eating creatures are responsible for millions of dollars in building repairs across the U.S. every year, and insurance rarely covers the damages, which is why vigilance is necessary when you unearth a termite problem.
Boynton Beach is home to two types of termites: subterranean and drywood termites. Subterranean termites require moisture while drywood termites spend the majority of their life inside dry wood. Most people don't know they have a termite infestation until they see holes in their walls. Other tell-tale signs of termite invasion include wings that have been shed.
Hometown employs several strategies to combat termites depending on the type of bug and the severity of the situation. Treatments range from spraying insecticide around your perimeter to full tent fumigation.
Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs are some of nature's most resilient critters. Like vampires, bed bugs sleep all day and feed on human blood at night. They are not associated with diseases, but their bites can be maddeningly itchy and excessive scratching can lead to infections. In addition to beds, these bugs like to hangout underneath baseboards, behind wall outlets and on clothes.
Because bed bugs are so prolific and hard to control, getting rid of them is not a do-it-yourself job. You'll save yourself a lot of headache and money by calling Hometown Pest Control as soon as you become aware of the problem. Hometown has been dealing with these creatures for years, and we use a combination of treatments to eliminate them for good
