With warm weather and humidity, Florida is paradise for a variety of insects, rodents and other pests. You can expect to find rats, possums, raccoons, mice, bats, birds, pigeons, snakes, fleas, ticks, beetles, ants, termites, spiders, mosquitoes, and myriad insects.
You may recognize that pests are in your home because you hear them scurrying around, smell their odor, or see evidence that they’re making their home in your home.
But other pests may be living in your home without your awareness, even in a spotlessly clean home. If living undetected in your home, pests such as termites can cause major structural damage to the wood in your home. Other pests wreak havoc on clothing and other fabrics, or in foods in your pantry.
While some pests are simply loud or annoying, other pests such as ticks, mosquitoes, rats, and other rodents may carry diseases that can infect pets and humans. Rats and mice may carry the dangerous Hantavirus while ticks may carry Lyme disease. As we South Floridians know, mosquitoes can carry Zika virus. Pests such as cockroaches and rats can get into boxes of food in your pantry, potentially leaving a trail of crumbs or contamination.
If you see evidence of a pest, you may decide to stop by your local hardware store to pick up a special spray to rid your home of the pests. Use caution as these sprays may be toxic to your pets or young children. While the sprays may work initially on the surface, most pests will move, burrow, or find another comfortable place in your home.
