Boca Raton Pest Control
Florida – a great place to sit back, unwind and enjoy plentiful sunshine. The bugs and rodents enjoy the state as much as you do, and they breed and thrive here extremely well. The heat and humidity also have negative effects on some pests and make them search for moist, cool areas for relief. Unfortunately, they often take up refuge in the dark recesses of your home and come out at night in search of food and water.
Common Pests in Boca Raton
Termites thrive across the world and especially in Florida where they live both above and below the ground. Drywood termites live above the ground and rely on wood for sustenance. They eat the cellulose within the wood and can compromise a building’s structure if they’re not caught in time. Subterranean termites also chew through wood but attack it below the ground. Both species can destroy fences, patios, furniture and other wooden items in a matter of months.
Florida has seen a resurgence of bed bugs in the past few years. These blood-sucking pests hide deep within mattress linings, suit cases, cushions and other upholstery. They come out mostly at night to feed on people and animals before crawling back into their hiding spots. Bed bugs can infest homes and businesses and hitchhike from place to place on clothing and briefcases. Once you have a bed bug infestation, it’s difficult to eradicate it without professional services. They’re extremely resilient and can withstand most over-the-counter pest control products.
The heat drives many rodents into residential homes throughout the summer months. After mice and rats find a good spot in the attic or behind the walls, they build nests and breed continuously through the fall. These pests contaminate living areas with feces and can cause allergic reactions in those with sensitivities. Squirrels may also invade your attic space and chew through boxes and wiring, which can spark fires and cause severe damage. Inspecting your home and sealing possible entryways can help deter and prevent rodent infestations.
