Deerfield Beach, FL Pest Control
As with the rest of Florida, the city of Deerfield Beach has a humid climate that proves attractive for many pests. At Florida Pest Control Center, we offer year-round pest control; our chemical and non-chemical treatments will be tailored to your situation and will never harm your health or the environment. Let us tell you about three of the most common pests in this area.
These brown, oval-shaped pests are a common threat in hotels and motels, so if you find them in your home, it’s likely that you picked them up elsewhere. They can latch on to clothes and luggage, and once they’re inside, they’ll move to warm, snug places like the mattress. They emerge at night to feed on human blood.
Their bites occur on exposed skin, come in rows or clusters, and can develop into welts. Some people are never affected by bites, though, so you should never rely on these alone when determining if you have bed bugs. Other signs include shed skin and tiny specks of blood on the mattress.
Thankfully, our company can eliminate these pests using a variety of treatments. We can start with fumigation or go straight to the heat treatment, which is the most effective option. We carry high-tech equipment, including the Heat Assault 500X.
Mice and rats will enter your property for food and warm shelter. They can squeeze through even the smallest holes, so even when your property is free of leaks, it’s vulnerable. First, you’ll be susceptible to structural damage, as these pests will tear away at soft materials like insulation and cardboard to build their nests. They’ll also burrow into your home to reach your kitchen.
Our company will remove these pests via traps and exclusion methods, though we can also set up a baiting program to eliminate them once and for all.
In this region, what we have to worry about are subterranean termites. These live in underground colonies and burrow up to feed on moist or decayed wood. To migrate to wood structures that are above ground level, they build tunnels from their saliva and feces. These mud tubes, as they’re called, will alert us right away to an infestation.
Shed wings are another sign of a termite invasion; these pests develop alates (winged termites) during swarming season, and they detach their wings once they have migrated to another part of your property.
To eliminate these pests, we could create a virtual barrier around your property using a termiticide spray, or we could set up bait stations directly above the colony.
