In any pest control program, ongoing maintenance is necessary to ensure control of any infestations and to help prevent future ones from occurring. Pests want three things: food, water, and shelter – all things that are inside your home. They often are relentless in looking for ways to be active as the weather changes, requiring different treatments as the seasons change. We partner with our customers, encouraging them to take simple steps in addition to the appropriate pest treatment provided by a licensed professional, to help keep potential pest in their place all year round, and to help keep your home protected.
Because we use Eco-Friendly products, you can usually stay home during the treatment. Just about every pest can be taken care
of while you’re relaxing on the living room couch.
Typically, most products last at least 60 days. Treatment effectiveness varies by type of pest. Ask your professional service technician about your particular circumstance.

It is important to note that if have a spider problem; you likely have a pest problem. Spiders are predators and make a living, eating pests such as bugs. They may wander in your home searching for these pests. If you want to rid your home of spiders, a great first step is to contact a licensed pest management professional to first rid your home of the spider’s food source which is other pests. Finally, there are some highly effective strategies we recommend you can do to make your home less attractive to spiders:
Seal off potential entries like crack and crevices, spaces under doors( install door sweeps), holes in screens, etc.
Inhibit their ability to create webs by cleaning, dusting, removing clutter etc.
Reduce lights on the outside which may attract other pests.
Reproductive (swarmer) termites usually emerge from late March to early June, when billions of winged termites fly from their nests to start new colonies. Swarmers resemble winged ants with straight antennae, a broad waist, and both pairs of wings equal in length.
Swarmers are attracted to sunlight and are usually found around windows.
Additionally, mud tubes on your foundation, sill plate, or header and floor joists are signs of a termite infestation.
Tapping or probing with a screwdriver can locate damaged wood. Damaged wood will sound hollow. If the area is still active, you may see worker termites inside.
Also, be sure to remember that termite galleries in wood are mud-filled and run with the grain.
First, find out if you are dealing with nursing colony. Bats have their young in June-July. No sealing or batproofing can be done in June or July. If you remove the adult bats before the pups can fly out, they will die in the building. Not only is this inhumane, but it is also impractical because bat carcasses are hard to find and get rid of.
Don’t get rid of bats during the winter when they are hibernating. There won’t be enough food for them to survive outside. If the bat population is decimated, you’ll probably notice more insects like mosquitoes and garden pests.
Determine where the bats are getting in and out. Look for bat dropping (guano) on or below the entrance.
Try to avoid inhaling the bat droppings.
If you can’t identify the openings by the dropping, watch carefully to see where they emerge from at dusk.
These are some common points of entry:
Broken or poorly-fitted screens
Loose or missing shingles or tiles
Places where flashing or boards have come loose
Locations where pipes or wiring enter buildings
Where walls meet the eaves at the gable ends of an attic
Where porches attach to the main part of a house
Where dormers meet the roof
Cracks and crevices where siding forms corners, or at places where it meets windows, doors or chimneys.
Prevent the bats from re-entering:
After they leave at night to feed, nail or staple a screen of fine hardware cloth over the opening. By the next night only some of them will be gone, so you’ll need to remove the covering so the stragglers can leave to feed.
Ideally, you should use one-way exit devices. This is what professionals use. Once all the bats are gone, the devices are removed and the holes are permanently sealed.

In this area of Florida, the most common roaches seen are the german cockroach, the oriental cockroach, the brown-banded cockroach and the American cockroach.
German cockroaches can be found all over the world. They are the most common cockroach in the United States. Each German cockroach can live about 100-200 days. They commonly found in kitchens or food areas.
Oriental Cockroaches probably get their names from trade ships but they are actually from Africa. They are large and very dark compared to other cockroaches. They usually travel through sewer pipes and drains. They prefer dirty places and cooler temperatures than other cockroaches. An Oriental cockroach creates a strong smell and is considered one of the dirtiest of all the cockroaches.
Brown-banded cockroaches get their name from the two light bands they have across their dark brownish bodies. The male’s wings are larger than the female’s wings. Brown-banded cockroaches often hide their eggs in or under furniture. They usually live 5-6 ½ months.
The American cockroach is the largest cockroach found in houses. Females can hatch up to 150 offspring per year. Cockroaches don’t get their wings until the become adults. American cockroaches are also known as “waterbugs” because they are so commonly found near rich water resources, like puddles and water pipes. American cockroaches are nocturnal. They rest by day and forage for food at night.
Cockroaches typically become established in homes after being introduced in grocery bags, with laundry or, in some cases, wandering in from outdoors. Once cockroaches become established they are prolific breeders capable of producing several thousand offspring in a year.
Cockroaches prefer to live where there is food, warmth and moisture. Since cockroaches flourish where food and moisture are readily available, sanitation is an important step in prevention and control. Empty soft drink bottles, cardboard boxes and paper bags should not be allowed to accumulate. Food containers should be sealed and any crumbs or spillage cleaned up.
Unlike many household pests, cockroaches are prevalent year-round, causing homeowners and businesses to eventually seek some form of control.
Cockroaches can impact our homes as they track in lots of bacteria and germs by crawling through dirty areas and then walk around our homes. They can contaminate food by shedding their skins. Their cast off skin and waste byproducts are allergens that can trigger allergic reactions, asthma and other illnesses, especially in children.
Best Ways of Prevention:
Keep your home clean and dry.
Vacuum often and seal cracks in and around your house.
If you see cockroaches, it is best to call a pest management professional due to the illnesses they can spread. Your service technician would like to see a specimen of the insect for a positive identification.
