Delray Beach Pest Control
People joke about how bugs are bigger in Florida, but it's no laughing matter when overgrown pests invade your home. Sadly, anecdotes about massive cockroaches and huge mosquitoes are true. Many pests grow larger in Florida because there is a longer warm season. Colonies can easily overwinter in our mild climate, which means that many pests aren't killed off and will return with a vengeance in the spring. Homes in Delray Beach also play host to a variety of invasive species that have been imported from other tropical areas and have found our local climate to be particularly suitable. That is why it's important to stay on top of problems and treat potential infestations before they worsen.
Termites are no exception to the general rule that pests in Florida are bigger and more damaging. Our state is in the highest risk category for termite infestations. Homes, public buildings, libraries, firehouses and schools are all vulnerable. Residents of Delray Beach can be pestered by many different termite species. Our area has a problem with subterranean and drywood termites as well as invasive Formosan termites that are expanding their range across the state. To protect your home, it's important to schedule regular inspections. If a problem is detected, our experts can apply highly effective Termidor perimeter treatments and perform tent fumigation if these wood-destroying pests have already invaded your home.
Bed Bug Control
Unfortunately, Florida has not been immune to the recent bed bug revival that has been felt across the nation. Bed bugs can discreetly enter your home by catching a ride on your clothing or inside a suitcase. They are a bad souvenir from a good vacation. Even if a population is established, it can be difficult to detect. Bed bugs come out at night to feed and spend the rest of their time in secret hiding places. Because they live behind outlet covers and in tiny crevices, treatments must be precisely targeted to reach adult bed bugs and their eggs. Frequently, it takes more than one plan of attack to get rid of these tenacious pests. There is no question that bed bugs cause more aggravation and sleepless nights than any other household pest.
In Florida, mosquitoes are active day and night. Frequent summer storms provide ideal conditions for mosquito eggs and larvae to thrive. Itchy bites and annoying swarms aren't the only problems associated with mosquitoes. Florida health officials warn about the diseases that they carry. Encephalitis and West Nile viruses are two of the most common mosquitoes-borne diseases, but Chikungunya virus, Dengue fever and dog heartworm are being added to the growing list of illnesses that these noxious bugs transmit to their human hosts. Properties in Delray Beach and Palm Beach County are also plagued by Asian tiger mosquitoes that inflict painful bites and carry several nasty diseases. Whether you want to enjoy your backyard in peace or are hosting a party, our mosquito misting services can restore your comfort and keep these bloodsucking pests off your property. Don't let pests ruin your personal paradise.
