Ants swarming in a home's kitchen


Although the termite swarming season is in the spring, the summer is the perfect time for their colonies to grow massively in size. Termites can hide away, so it’s crucial to be on the lookout for signs of a termite infestation, including clicking sounds, rotting wood, droppings, and flying termites. Homeowners can prevent them by discarding any wood close to your home, planting shrubs a few feet away from your home, fixing leaks, and getting rid of any other potential sources of moisture. Contact us for termite treatment right away!


Florida and fleas go hand in hand. Pet owners know the trouble fleas can cause, from constant itching to the feeling that bugs are burrowed into your carpet and flooring. The best way to avoid fleas is to invest in quality flea treatments for your dog or cat. If fleas have already infiltrated your home, it’s time to call in the professionals. Our pest control specialists get rid of fleas using high-quality, effective treatment. Get in touch with us if you’re dealing with a flea infestation.


Mosquitoes are synonymous with summer in Florida. These pests love standing water, so if your home is by a lake, pond, or even a smaller body of water, mosquitoes will show up in droves and reproduce rapidly. Mosquitoes are a nuisance, leaving itchy, irritating bumps when they bite, and they can potentially be harmful to humans due to the viruses they sometimes carry, such as Zika or West Nile virus. They can even transmit heartworms to your furry friend. If mosquitoes have started swarming on your property, It’s important to call an experienced pest control company for mosquito control.


Floridians are familiar with a wide variety of ant species, from black ants to the more nasty fire ants. After hibernating in the winter, ants come out in large numbers in the summer and can make their way into your home in search for food and water. You can prevent ants by thoroughly cleaning your kitchen and the rest of your home, keeping trees and bushes trimmed back, and sealing cracks inside and outside the home. If preventive measures fail to keep ants at bay, contact us for ant pest control.


If fleas aren’t biting you and your pets, ticks could be. Similar to mosquitoes, ticks can be problematic because they spread disease. The best way to prevent ticks is to use medication on pets, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants and closed-toe shoes when outdoors; avoid high grass and the woods whenever possible, and check for and immediately remove any ticks from you and your pets after coming inside.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a well-known nuisance to Florida homeowners. These tiny, oval-shaped pests hide in your mattress during the day and emerge at night. Attracted to carbon dioxide, bed bugs leave small red bites on exposed areas of the body, including the neck, armpits, torso, and upper body. If you’re plagued with bed bugs, get the help of our bed bug exterminators as soon as possible — infestations can spread fast.
