When most tourists think of Florida, thrilling theme parks, beautiful beaches and palm trees likely come to mind. But while the Sunshine State is home to the cutest mouse in the world, it also has some of the most pervasive pest populations in the United States.
At Impact Pest Elimination, we know how to handle any pest infestation – and quickly!
If you’ve paid attention to the news in Florida over the last few years, you’ve probably heard about the return of the giant rats to The Keys. But the presence of rodents like rats shouldn’t be news to homeowners in the state.
If you spot holes in the walls or droppings, contact us for an investigation of a rat infestation.
You can’t live in Florida for more than a couple months and not get bitten by a fire ant. They’re everywhere! But fire ants aren’t the only ant army marching one by one, building colonies and busting through your budget.
Although most of Florida’s temperatures stay mildly cool during the winter, ants continue to seek warmer shelter – i.e. your home. These little pests might not look like they can cause extensive damage – think carpenter ant – but a colony can turn your home’s foundation into a city of tunneled passages that results in expensive repairs.
Speaking of tunneled passages in your home’s foundation, no pest does a better job at eating through it and your pockets more than a termite. As with detecting an ant infestation, it’s best to find a termite infestation in its early stages to avoid it becoming an even bigger – and more expensive – problem. If you notice a swarm of winged insects in your home, cracked paint or mud tubes on exterior walls, call our team right away for immediate termite control.
Summer or winter, day or night – well, usually at night while you’re sleeping – roaches are a common nuisance in Florida’s homes. Although keeping your kitchen counters clear of crumbs and the rest your home clean helps deter them from infesting your home, it’s not a full-proof way of protecting it from a large-scale roach infestation. To rid your home of roaches, invest in a safe and secure pest control solution.
There are many common species of spiders that call Florida home, including the poisonous brown recluse, which is only one of two spider species in the United States with medically significant venom. To ensure an eight-legged lurker doesn’t feast on your skin and turn an appendage into dinner, ensure you treat your home seasonally to protect your health from poisonous pests.
Whether you live in Hillsborough County, Pinellas County or any other county in the Sunshine State, the team at Impact Pest Elimination is standing by to protect you, your family and your home from the state’s pests. Call us today at (800) 344-9190 for more information about how we can help.
