Pest Control During the Rainy Season

Summer is here and that means many days of heavy rain and thunderstorms ahead.  During this season, we typically get the following questions:

Does the rain wash away the pest treatment?

If the exterior of your property was treated and then it rains later that same day, chances are it will not affect the pest treatment for these two main reasons:

  • Most homes have a form of guttering that overhangs the edges of the structure and will not affect the base of the property.
  • When our team treats the exterior, we do not spray on existing wet surfaces as the pesticides need to “bind” with the area of which its being applied.

Can you spray pesticides in the rain?

If it has been raining heavily for hours on end before performing the treatment, then it would not be the optimal time to be treating.  In order to be affective, the pesticides need to bind with the surface it is being applied to.

Should my appointment be rescheduled due to the rain?

There are exceptions to the rule but for most cases, you do not need to reschedule the appointment. Treatments to the inside of the property can take place and depending on the situation, the outside treated as well.   

Many of the insecticides that our team uses are insoluble and will not wash away by rainfall, however if it has been raining heavily for consecutive days, and the weather is worse, then it might be a time to reschedule.

Additionally, when the ground is soft from all the rain, most pests, especially ants will actually come out from the ground because they need to escape the moisture. This can result in pest treatments being more effective because we can not only hit the pests directly but also because the pesticide granules dissolve and are absorbed into the ground, killing off more pests beneath the surface. In fact, some treatments require the product to be wet in order for the toxins to be released.

Tick Season in South Florida

It’s almost Summer and that means Tick season. 

True Pest Control Fact:   Ticks are not insects – they are arachnids.  Related to the spider and scorpion family of pests.  For the most part, ticks mainly live in warm, wooded and or grassy areas and feed on blood from the animals that are in the area. 

Each year, thousands of dogs become infected with tick-transmitted diseases.  The most common and dangerous version is Lyme Disease.  However, there are many other serious illnesses that ticks can spread including Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichia, anaplasmosis, babesia, and tularemia.  Early symptoms from these diseases are difficult to recognize, and dogs can suffer for weeks or months before the disease is detected.  Sometimes treatment works; sometimes it’s too late.

Florida’s year-round warmth allows ticks to thrive – in the grass, in shrubs and wooded areas, and on your pet.  Brown ticks and American dog ticks are common in South Florida, but Deer ticks and the Lone Star ticks can also be found in the state.  In addition to the monthly flea and tick treatment for your pet, you will want to ensure that your home, your property, and your family are free of ticks. 

To keep you and your family safe, follow these tips:

  • Keep your yard, trees, and bushes trimmed. 
  • Remove any debris or clutter around your yard and home. 
  • Use fences to keep out other wild animals that may carry ticks. 
  • When you go outside, use tick repellants and wear long, light colored clothing so that you can easily see ticks. 
  • If you have a pet, vacuum frequently and dispose of the dust and dander in a sealed plastic bag. 
  • Wash bedding regularly with hot water. 
  • If you, your family, or your pets have been exposed to grassy and wooded areas, be sure to check for ticks!  Check around the ears, underarms, in hair, behind the knees, between the legs, around the waist, and in the belly button. 
  • If you find a tick, properly remove the tick with a fine-point tweezers, gently pulling it out and saving in a glass jar with a tight lid in case a disease develops.  Clean the bite area with a disinfectant. 

Contact Florida Pest Control Center (FPCC) to treat your yard, bushes, trees, as well as hot spots on your home’s exterior.  We will also recommend changes that will help prevent ticks from invading your property.  FPCC will conduct regular inspections and follow up treatments to ensure your property is protected from ticks, especially during the times they are most active.

I See Termites – What Should I Do?

Yes, it is termite season in South Florida.  This is the time of year when termites are swarming all around and when they are most visible.  Are you seeing termites

How to spot termites in South Florida?

When people initially spot termites, they typically see the swarmer kind of termite. This version looks like a small ant but with tiny wings.  The difference with the termite is that the wings are transparent and rounded at the top. 

The adult version of these swarmer termites is black or dark brown with a pinched waist and have a straight antenna along with wings that are uneven in length.

What time of day can you spot termites?

Drywood termites are typically most active at night during the dusk and dawn hours and can be spotted around the lighted areas of the dwelling. Whereas the Subterranean termites swarm during the day and can easily be seen after a rainfall or spring shower. Subterranean termites are most visible in the springtime.  

Invasive Formosan termites swarm at night and are generally at their peak in the late spring and summer. Conehead termites form a colony and travel in groups at nice.  They can typically be seen in the dark on exposed surfaces near their food sources.

Termite Seasonal Calendar:

Drywood termite swarm at night, from April through July and a variation call tropical smooth-headed can swarm throughout the year.

Conehead termites disperse in swarms, often after the first heavy rain of the spring.

Formosan termites swarm at night during the late spring.

Subterranean termites swarm during the spring and summer months.

Preparing for Termite Season in South Florida

In South Florida, termite swarming season is typically greatest from March to May, but termites  can be found swarming around as early as February.  Although there are over 2,600 species of termites, the most common is the West-Indian Powderpost Drywood Termite.  This particular type of drywood termite infests South Florida homes and buildings and is known as the “silent destroyer” since they cause over $5 billion in home and property damage annually.

How Can You Prepare?

Knowledge is your best defense against termites invading your property.  Be aware of what to look for, what you can do to make your home less attractive to the termites, and know to call for help at the first sign of a termite swarm. At Florida Pest Control Center, we’ve been helping homeowners in South Florida with termite prevention and treatment services in addition to our other pest control services.  Addressing the following areas can help lessen the appeal of your home to termites:

Exterior Lighting. It is recommended to limit the sources of exterior lighting during the evenings as it can help lessen the attractiveness of your home to nearby swarming termites.

Wood Piles. Termites love wood – it’s where they build their colonies.  Make sure to remove any piles of sticks from a yard cleanup, or any other source of wood as quickly as possible.

Leaves, dead plants, or obstructions at the foundation of your property. Clear your yard of any dead leaves, piles of grass clippings, and any yard waste.  Garages, patios and doorways should also be free of any debris. 

Moisture areas. Fix any water intrusion from a leaking door, window, roof, or plumbing as this can be a conducive condition for subterranean termites.

Rodents Are Unwanted House Pests

When you live in South Florida and you think of all of the potential pests that can take up residence in your home any number of species can come to mind. However, the thought of rodents and other varmints in your attic or other parts of your home seems to add another level of concern. You immediately begin to think about the threat they pose to you and your family and the potential damage they can cause.

All of these are legitimate concerns. Therefore, we have outlined some of the major health risks; along with some preventative steps you can take to prevent an infestation in the first place. When it comes to the potential health risks that these pests can present to you and your family the dangers differ from vermin to vermin.

Health Risks

Rats, Mice & Squirrels:
Rats alone are known to spread as many as 35 different diseases to humans worldwide. These diseases can be spread through direct contact with rodents or their feces, urine, saliva, or through rodent bites 1. There are also the indirect health risks of being bitten by ticks, mites, or fleas that have been feeding on sick rodents can also spread diseases.

The main health risks that rodents pose to humans and pets are Rat Bite Fever (RBF), Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus (LCMV), Leptospirosis, Salmonellosis, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome and Rabies.

Racoons:
Some health risks that raccoons possess include roundworm, trichinosis, tuberculosis, rabies and many varieties of fleas. These can place humans and other pets at risk through physical contact as well as airborne pathogens from raccoon fecal matter and urine.

High Risk Disease: Raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis) which are parasites that live inside the raccoon’s intestine and produce microscopic eggs that are shed in the raccoon’s feces. These eggs are extremely harmful to humans and household pets if inadvertently swallowed or inhaled. If this occurs, the larvae hatch out of the eggs and move into the organs of the body and can cause serious eye disease, damage to the nervous system or even death.

Opossums:
Opossums have a much stronger immune system than other common varmints. In addition to this, they also have a lower than average body temperature which helps them fight off diseases which other household pests cannot.

However, opossums do often carry fleas and other parasites, and the potential diseases that they carry. They also pose a threat through the usual excrement health risks, such as Leptospirosis or Salmonella.

Property Damage

When it comes to the potential dangers associate with property damage caused by these pests, the overall damages can range from minimal to significant issues. The earlier an infestation is identified and rectified the better. In most cases infestations can be addresses by removing the pest(s), identifying the entry point(s) and closing them and ensure no other potential entry points exists.

However, if the infestation has occurred over a prolonged period of time you can be looking at significant wiring damage, insulation damage, fecal and urine damage and more. These are the infestations that pose potential significant damage to your overall health and property. The most severe illnesses are generally associated with diseases spawn by fecal matter left behind by these pests.

If you are a homeowner or business owner that is currently dealing with an infestation, we highly recommend utilizing our professional trapping protocol. Our trapping protocol not only eradicates the pest; we complete the process with a sanitation virucide application to give you the best indoor air quality along with solutions for preventing future infestations from reoccurring.

The professionals at Florida Pest Control Center perform a thorough inspection of your property to address any potential voids and repairs needed to avoid future infestation. We will go over your entire house to find all possible animal access points, inspect the damage caused, and with your permission, return everything to the way it should be.

How Pests Can Bug You in A Hot Real Estate Market

This year South Florida has seen a drastic uptick in the real estate market as people are fleeing the North and heading South.  Home values have seen double and even triple amounts and homes rarely  stay on the market for more than a few weeks.  So, how can pests effect you if you are planning to sell or purchase a home?  Potential buyers may not be willing to pay a high asking price if after noticing a pest infestation. 

The biggest deal breakers are termites as these are the silent destroyers.  The National Pest Management Association (NPMA), states that termites are responsible for over $5 billion in property damage each year.  Even more staggering is the property damage and the corresponding cleanup caused by pest infestations  which is not covered by insurance.  Therefore, if a potential home buyer notices any signs of a pest infestation, you can bet that your home will be off the list.  

Are Termites Invading?

If you’ve been finding piles of insect wings in your home, you may be understandably puzzled. This isn’t a sign of a new infestation. These wings are left behind by the swarmer’s, who shed their wings after a time. If you see this, it’s a sign of a big problem that needs to be fixed as quickly as possible.  The sooner you wipe out termites, the less damage your home will sustain.

Could It Be Bed Bugs?

There’s more to consider… Bed Bugs… these tiny bugs can quickly deter a potential home buyer.  Bed bugs are rapidly becoming one of the most important urban pests. Bed bugs are parasites that feed on the blood of humans and other animals. Even though these pests are not restricted to the bed area, beds and mattresses are the most common location for an infestation. Bed bugs use a specialized beak to pierce the skin of an unsuspecting host, and the insect will feed until it is engorged with blood. Bed bugs can cause extreme discomfort, and infestations can be detrimental to a company’s reputation. If you are concerned about bed bugs, contact us for a free quote.

How to Spot an Infestation?  Keep an eye out for the following:

  • Live or dead bugs around the window ledges or edge of flooring or carpet 
  • Piles of dirt or ant hills on the property
  • Large areas of damage to the lawn or multiple brown spots
  • Pest fecal droppings around the house
  • Unusual odors such as musty or urine smells
  • Wood that sounds hollow when you tap it

New South Florida Homeowners Here Are the Pests to Know

Florida is known for its warm weather all year round.  It has always drawn people in from all over the U.S. and now with the current housing market, Florida is in even more in demand. 

Unfortunately, Florida’s pleasant weather also attracts non-humans too. Pests such as termites, rodents, ants, and other insects can be a big nuisance and difficult to combat year-round.

However, your ongoing battle against pests is not impossible. Here are a few common pests that homeowners should be aware of.

Termites

Termites in South Florida are every homeowner’s worst nightmare because they can destroy the structure of the home. There are distinct kinds of termites to consider  – drywood and subterranean.

Drywood termites typically receive their nutrients by eating through wood slowly and take a while to cause structural damage.

On the other hand, subterranean termites are the most destructive since they form large colonies that will quickly eat through wood.

Hire the trained termite team at Florida Pest Control Center to solve this problem in your home.

Rodents

Rodents, rats and mice can be one of the scariest pests to have in your home because they are much larger than just a termite or ant.

Rodents in South Florida will find ways into your home – a small opening in a wall, through the roof, or any small hole in your house. 

Ants, Ants, Ants

In South Florida there are many varieties of ants and Carpenter ants are one of the most frustrating pests in homes.  These ants typically will create messy nests inside wood no matter if it is moist or dry.  They also pose a threat to your food safety and can create problems in your daily life as they are quickly multiple if left untreated.

Any pest control budget should cover annual treatment for carpenter ants to prevent an infestation in your home.

Spiders

Seeing these eight-legged, web spinning pests can be very unsettling.

The spiders around South Florida primarily spread webs outside of a home and around the landscaping areas.  There are times that they can make their way inside your home through small openings or when a door is open. It is best to limit nesting places inside by cleaning often and avoiding dust or other debris from building up in your home.

Mosquitos

Mosquitos are a true annoyance all around South Florida during any season of the year, but especially during the summer months when there are heavy amounts of rain which mosquitos are most attracted to.  They also pose a risk to your health since they can carry illnesses such as the West Nile virus. Mosquitos

Scary Pest Facts to Think About

In honor of the year’s spookiest holiday, check out a few scary facts about the bugs, insects and pests that are all around us. 

  • Spiders alternate their legs when walking.  Spiders will keep four legs touching the ground and four legs off the ground and they are able to walk on both horizontal and vertical surfaces.
  • Bed bugs checkout of hotels and can live with you in your home.  Bed bugs can thrive in single-family homes, apartments, hospitals, college dorm rooms, office buildings, schools, buses, trains, movie theaters, retail stores and just about anywhere that humans are.
  • Cockroaches can live without their head for a month.  Yes, it is true for a particular species of cockroaches  because they have an open circulatory system with little pressure, beheading will not result in a lot of blood loss and a lot of the functions of a roaches brain are decentralized.
  • Scorpions can go a year without food.  Scorpions have a leisurely approach to hunting, which mostly involves sitting and waiting, meaning they use very few nutrients.
  • Houseflies either defecates or regurgitates when they land. Flies have a liquid diet, which means everything goes right through their tiny digestive systems.
  • Bees have two stomachs.  One stomach is for food and the other is to contain the nectar. This stops the honey the bee produces from being contaminated.

For many homeowners, just the thought of spider’s web in their living room or bed bugs nesting under the covers can turn their home a haunted one. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) informs homeowners that the Fall months are typical pest infestations as insects and rodents are seeking shelter from the cooler weather that rolls in.

South Florida Pest Control: 101

With September being back-to-school, let’s look at some basic pest control 101 tips for around South Florida.  Whether it’s insects, rodents, bed bugs, iguanas or anything else – these pests  are not a pretty sight to see. Learn how you can prevent them from entering your location altogether with these pest control tips.

In The Kitchen

Cook in the kitchen and eat in the kitchen, keeping all food in one main area.  Make it a house rule to only eat in the kitchen/dining area and not in other areas of the home.  The fewer areas exposed to food, the less risk of any type of pest invasion you’ll have.

Mop, sweep or Swiffer whatever you choose but it is best to clean the floor daily. Missing a few days may be just enough to attract some unwanted insects to a buffet feast.

Clear the drain and run the disposal. Be sure that any slow-moving drains are cleared and cleaned. Bugs often enter the home searching for water, so it is best to repair leaky sinks and drains in your home.

In The Pantry

Store food properly in and around the kitchen pantry. Insect and bugs can get into all but the most tightly sealed packaging – bags, cardboard, etc. Be sure to store items in the pantry in containers that properly seal. It is always recommended to place dry goods like sugars, flours, and bulk mixes in airtight containers.

Consider storage of fruits and vegetables. Many ripe fresh foods attract ants, fruit flies, and many other pests so eat them quickly and store them properly.

In The Closets

Wash, Dry, Store – you always want to put away clean clothes. Clothes that are dirty will certainly attract bugs.

In Garbage Bins

Time to take out the trash.  Make sure to clean out the various garbage bins and recyclable bins used to temporarily store garbage. Another great tip is to go a step further and rinse out plastic, glass, and metal containers that are being recycled.

Put a lid on your trash. Garbage can lids on trash will keep bugs out, keep smells in, and help keep critters and infestations away. Choose bins and buckets with lids when shopping for garbage and recycling containers.

Don’t Forget Outside Areas

Trim Trees.  Insects and critters love to have an easy way on to and into your home.  It is best to prune foliage near the house and make sure nothing is touching the roof lines. Bushes, trees, and shrubs that touch your home will welcome in the bugs like a red carpet. 

Another area to consider are any screens.  Window screens, porch door screens, patio screens, etc.  It is best to repair or replace broken screens on windows and doors right away.
