Ant Control In Weston, FL
Ants in Weston are a problem. Sometimes a very tiny, hard to see problem, but still a problem! Located in the Bug Capital of the United States, our tropical environment is host to over 200 species of ants.
The most common ants in Weston are ghost ants and bigheaded ants. They are often referred to as sugar ants. While less common, we also get many calls for carpenter ants and fire ants in Weston.
Ant extermination in Weston can often be a challenge, since ants are so sensitive to pheronomes. We recommend never using contact kill sprays around ants. While these ant sprays are great at killing them immediately, it doesn’t do anything to eliminate the ant colonies that are usually in the walls or outside.
These ant sprays often even cause ants to spread into different rooms throughout your house in a process called budding during which they establish new colonies.
Cockroach Control In Weston, FL
There are two main types of cockroaches in Weston that commonly get into homes. The American cockroach and the German cockroach. American cockroaches are often referred to in the area as palmetto bugs - or giant roaches with wings! They are about two inches long and are classified as occasional invaders, since they mainly live outdoors.
American cockroaches can get inside your home from the exterior if a preventative pest control application is not applied on a regular basis. If you are seeing more than a couple American cockroaches a month, there may be an entry point in the plumbing on the interior that is allowing them to get in from the sewer system.
German cockroaches don’t live outside. If you are seeing them in your home, they either were physically brought inside on accident or if you are in a condo or townhome, they may have gotten inside from a neighbor with a shared wall.
German cockroaches are smaller than American cockroaches, and prefer to hide in cracks and crevices, usually starting in the kitchen and then the bathrooms. To properly control German cockroaches, we provide a two-part interior treatment to completely eliminate them from your home.
Termite Control In Weston, FL
Termites in Weston 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.
Drywood termites in Weston are the most common type that we find in the area. Homeowners often find drywood termite frass (termite droppings) in kitchen cabinets, along baseboards, on windowsills, under doorframes, underneath wooden furniture, or on top of attic insulation. This frass comes out of termite kickout holes, which our termite inspectors are trained to locate.
Many homeowners think that their home is safe from subterranean termites since it is built on a concrete slab. These termites often enter the home through the plumbing penetrations in the concrete slab, and then consume the wooden studs in the walls of the home. Even if the studs are made of steel, these termites commonly travel up the walls and into the attics of homes to consume wood.
We specialize in various forms of Weston termite control and prevention, from termite pre-treatments to tent fumigations, termite bait stations, and whole home no-tent treatments. All of our termite control programs are warrantied.
Rodent Control In Weston, Florida
Roof rats on Weston are the most common rodent we see in the area. Usually the first sign of a rodent infestation are noises in the attic at night. Roof rats are extremely adept at getting into homes, because they provide a warm shelter, especially in the winter months.
The best method of removing rats permanently from your home is to set up a rodent control and trapping program and also exclude them out of the home by sealing all potential exterior entry points that are 1/4 inch or larger.
If rats are not currently in your home, we recommend the installation and maintenance of tamper-proof rodent bait stations on the exterior of your home to reduce the exterior population. We never recommend the use of rodent bait indoors, since it can and will cause rats to die and decompose within the home.
Once rodents are eliminated from your home, we recommend removal and replacement of the insulation in your attic due to contamination from rodent urine and feces. We are fully prepared to safely remove insulation from your home or business and even include attic fogging with a sanitization product.
Our Service Area - Weston, FL
Weston is our home! We love it and hope you do as well. With a population of approximately 75,000, Weston is growing rapidly. There is new construction throughout the area as the need for new development to accommodate our new residents and many tourists grows.
This new development often results in pest issues in new construction homes and existing homes that are close to areas of major land development as habitats are disturbed.
Pests like mosquitoes and gnats that breed most often in undeveloped areas are attracted to lights emitted from the many new homes and buildings. These flying insects then provide a food source for spiders.
The spiders attract paper wasps and mud daubers. The new mulch brought in carries ants and millipedes and before you know it we have a whole new insect ecosystem that comes along with the newly constructed homes in the area.
