When a pest invasion occurs, most homeowners try to solve the problem on their own. In some cases this can be effective in removing most common invasive Florida pests. In other cases certain insects, critters, and rodents are more difficult to eliminate. If you are not sure how to eliminate a pest problem, don’t try it. Not knowing what you are doing can worsen the problem and pose serious health risks.
Rats and Mice
Rodents can carry and transfer many diseases like bubonic plague, salmonella, and rat-bite fever, so it’s important to eliminate them as soon as possible. Rodents can be difficult to keep out of your property because they have the ability to squeeze through small spaces. In many cases, traps and poisons may do the trick, but to avoid serious infestations, contact a rodent pest control professional.
Bed Bugs Bites
Bed bugs are small nocturnal insects that feed on blood typically found on mattresses, box springs, and bed frames. They also hide in bedding, clothing, and in any small dark cracks in furniture, walls, and floors. People who suffer Bed bug bites get itchy welts on their skin and in some cases small red spots. Bed bugs have not been found to transit any dangerous diseases to humans.
Termites are small, but can cause millions of dollars of damage. It is estimated that more than one in five homes in the high activity areas, have or will be infested by termites.
