ALL YEAR PROTECTION
Once we have determined the best way to eliminate pests and prevent further infestations, we will set up a treatment schedule that works for you. Because the temperatures in Northeast Florida very rarely drop low enough to significantly reduce some insect populations, the most effective plans include year-round treatments.
At each commercial facility, we conduct a wide-ranging assessment and give additional attention to all entry points, water sources, food sources, harbor-age points, and common areas. We communicate with employees in the building to get accurate information on pest sightings and evidence to prevent infestations and control existing pest problems.
Whether your pests are a minor inconvenience or a major pest infestation, we have pest control systems in place to take care of it for you. We perform thorough inspections of the interior and exterior of your home. Once we identify the type of pest, we help you decide on a course of action to get rid of them.
How Can We Protect Your Home?
WDO Wood Destroying Organisms
Wood Destroying Organisms (WDO) are pests or organisms that can damage or deteriorate wood structures. Common examples of WDO include termites, wood-boring beetles, and fungi. These organisms can pose a serious threat to buildings and wooden structures, leading to structural damage if left unchecked.
Rodents, such as mice and rats, are common pests that can cause various problems in both residential and commercial settings. They are known to spread diseases through their droppings and urine, contaminate food supplies, and damage property by gnawing on wires, insulation, and furniture. Rodents can also reproduce quickly, leading to rapid infestations if not addressed promptly.
Termites are destructive insects that feed on wood and cellulose materials, causing extensive damage to buildings and wooden structures. They can go unnoticed for a long time as they often work within the inner layers of wood. Termites can weaken the structural integrity of a building and lead to costly repairs if left untreated.
Ants are common household pests that can cause various problems, such as contaminating food supplies, damaging property, and even inflicting painful bites in some species. They are known to invade homes searching for food and water, forming trails that can be difficult to eliminate. Some ant species can also cause structural damage by nesting in walls or wooden structures.
Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. They are notorious for causing itchy bites, skin rashes, and allergic reactions in some individuals. Infestations can be challenging to eradicate as these pests hide in cracks, crevices, and bedding during the day and emerge at night to feed.
Cockroaches are common household pests known for their resilience and adaptability. They can contaminate food, spread diseases, and trigger asthma and allergies through their feces, saliva, and shed skin. Cockroaches are nocturnal insects that prefer warm, humid environments, making kitchens and bathrooms ideal habitats.
Bees are important pollinators in the ecosystem but can become a nuisance when building hives in or near homes. The presence of bees can pose risks, especially to individuals allergic to bee stings. Additionally, bee colonies can cause structural damage to homes, particularly if they establish hives within walls or other hidden spaces.
Beetles are a diverse group of insects that can cause problems in homes and gardens. Some beetles, such as carpet beetles and powderpost beetles, can damage furniture, fabrics, and wooden structures by feeding on them. Others, like ladybugs and ground beetles, can become household pests when they invade homes in search of shelter or food.
Centipedes are elongated arthropods with multiple pairs of legs, typically found in damp or moist environments like basements, bathrooms, and gardens. Centipedes are not known to cause significant damage to property or pose serious health risks to humans, but some species can deliver a venomous bite that may cause localized pain and swelling.
Earwigs are nocturnal insects with elongated bodies and pincers at the end of their abdomens, often found in damp or dark areas like gardens and basements. Earwigs can become household pests when they invade homes in search of shelter or food.
Fleas are small, wingless insects that feed on the blood of mammals and birds, including humans. They are notorious for causing itchy bites, skin irritation, and allergic reactions in pets and humans. Flea infestations can quickly spiral out of control as these pests reproduce rapidly and are challenging to eradicate once established.
Mosquitoes are flying insects that thrive in warm and humid environments, breeding in stagnant water sources. They are notorious for their itchy bites and potential role in transmitting diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, and West Nile virus.
Palmetto bugs, also known as American cockroaches, are large insects that can be found in warm and moist environments like basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. While they do not pose serious health risks to humans, their presence can be unsettling and unsanitary. Palmetto bugs can contaminate food, trigger asthma and allergies, and carry pathogens on their bodies.
Silverfish are small, wingless insects known for their distinctive silvery appearance and fish-like movements. They prefer dark, damp areas and feed on starchy materials like paper, glue, and clothing. While silverfish do not pose significant health risks to humans, they can damage books, wallpaper, and other home items.
Spiders are arachnids that play a vital role in controlling insect populations but can be considered pests when they invade homes. While most spiders are harmless, some species like black widows and brown recluses are venomous and can pose health risks with their bites. Additionally, the presence of spider webs and sightings can cause fear and discomfort for many people.
