Pet Friendly Pest Control In Delray Beach
When I founded Native Pest Management in 2015, Delray Beach was one of the first cities we provided service in. There was explosive growth west of the FL Turnpike along 441 and Lyons Rd as new communities including The Bridges and Seven Bridges were just being built.
With most of the new home construction replacing nurseries and farm land, the pest population was enormous. And it still is.
Every evening, the bright lights from homes and businesses in Delray attract flying insects including mosquitoes, gnats, midges, and flies from undeveloped areas. What eats these flying insects? Spiders!
I have never in my life seen more spiders than I have seen in Delray Beach. I also remember roof rats even getting inside of new construction homes before their new owners would even move in.
I firmly believe that the large amount of spiders, rats, ants and other pests in the area are a result of the rapid development that is still adjacent to rural areas harboring pests.
Fortunately, this was the perfect pest control training ground for us and we learned what products and application methods actually work against such a large population of insects and rodents.
You deserve the peace of mind that should come with living in sunny South Florida. If you are looking for a top-rated, local company that truly knows how to provide the best pest control in Delray Beach, call us today to get started with one of our pet-friendly pest prevention programs.

Ant Control In Delray Beach, FL
The most common ants we are currently seeing in Delray Beach, FL are ghost ants, often referred to as sugar ants.
If you are seeing very tiny ants in your home, most likely this is the species. Four in every five houses we treat for ants in Delray Beach, FL have ghost ants.
Ghost ants are attracted to your home because insects that feed on plants in the landscape produce a substance called honeydew which ghost ants love to eat. These insects, including scale, whiteflies, and aphids, continue to produce honeydew as long as they are allowed to feed on your plants.
No matter how many times your exterminator treats in your home, that honeydew will continue to attract sugar ants from neighboring properties.
At Native Pest Management, we know how to find the source of ants and how to exterminate sugar ants for good.

Cockroach Control In Delray Beach, FL
The second most common pests we see are American cockroaches, often called Palmetto bugs. American roaches in Delray Beach, FL are very common due to our tropical environment.
Usually they live outside or in sewers since they prefer humid environments. Often, they end up in homes due to the scent of food.
Roach sprays and cockroach baits sold in local stores usually do not control American cockroaches because these treatments do nothing to target the source of how these roaches are getting inside your home.
They also are usually contact kill only sprays and the gel baits dry out quickly without providing long term roach prevention. By focusing on insect proofing homes and eliminating the exterior population of Palmetto Bugs, we are able to offer guaranteed pest control in Delray Beach, FL and other nearby towns and cities.
While American cockroaches often strike more fear in people, German cockroaches are harder to control. We most often see German roaches in restaurants, condos and apartments.
German roaches are very different than American cockroaches, in that they only live indoors. If you think you may have these smaller cockroaches in your home, check the cracks and crevices in your kitchen and bathrooms with a flashlight, you'll likely see them hiding next to appliances or in-between cabinets.
German cockroaches multiply so quickly, that we have been inside of area homes and condos that have had thousands of them. The presence of these roaches doesn't mean your home is dirty. They don't live outside, so they were brought in by accident and then once they've established themselves they quickly spread.
In addition to sugar ants and American cockroaches, we commonly see spiders, silverfish, mosquitoes, rats, mice, millipedes, fleas, and fire ants in Delray Beach, FL. Call us today to schedule your free pest control quote!
Mosquito Control In Delray Beach, FL
Mosquitoes can be bad in the Delray Beach, FL area. Really bad. Many areas that are still undeveloped in the Western portion of Palm Beach County are prime breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
Palm Beach County actually conducts aerial mosquito control in Delray Beach, FL a couple times each year to keep them from getting completely out of control. While these sprays certainly help, they provide no residual control to stop mosquitoes from invading your property and don't last more than a week or two at best.
At Native Pest Management, we are mosquito control experts. Our Delray Beach, FL mosquito control includes a monthly backpack fogging of your property with a pet-friendly product to eliminate harborage areas in the landscape.
By using a combination of insect growth regulator and a micro-encapsulated insecticide, we are able to get longer residual control. Every mosquito control application also includes the treatment of standing water on your property with a biological larvicide to prevent mosquitoes from breeding around your home.
We are so confident that our mosquito control is effective, that if you continue to have any mosquitoes in-between services, we will return at no additional charge to inspect for their source and to treat them again.
Termite Control In Delray Beach, FL
Termites in Delray Beach, FL cause a massive amount of structural wood damage on an annual basis. From the subterranean termites that enter your home from the soil, to the drywood termite swarmers that leave termite wings on your windowsills, we are local termite control experts.
We specialize in various forms of Delray Beach, FL termite control and prevention, from termite pre-treatments to tent fumigations, termite bait stations and whole home no-tent treatments.

Rodent Control In Delray Beach, FL
Roof rats in Delray Beach and throughout South Florida are a major problem. While food is plentiful for them outside, they frequently get into attics of homes in the area since they prove to be ideal nesting locations. We’ve even seen roof rats get inside of new construction homes in communities including the Bridges and the Seven Bridges before residents have moved in!
The first indication people usually have of a roof rat infestation are scratching sounds in the attic. The easiest way to confirm the presence of roof rats in the attic is to visibly identify their feces which if present will be on top of the insulation and AC ducts in the attic.
A proper roof rat removal program requires trapping and exclusion of all potential exterior entry points. Never use rodent bait within the home, as it will likely result in dead rats causing the home to smell and it will not prevent more rats from entering the home.
If there are no roof rats present in the home, we recommend a preventative home exclusion combined with rodent reduction via the installation and maintenance of tamper-proof rodent bait stations on the exterior of the home. These preventative rodent control services allow us to provide a guarantee that rats won't enter your home as long as it is protected by Native Pest Management.
