Fire Ants

Lawn Pests

Spiraling White Fly


Carpenter Bees

Stinging Insects




Termites Threat Level

Termites pose an intense threat to homes in our area year-round. Across the southern half of the country, every yard in a suburban neighborhood will likely have at least one and probably multiple colonies of subterranean termites.


Ants Threat Level

This time of year, populations of our local ant species including Argentine Ants, Pharaoh Ants and Odorous House Ants are at their peak and in search of food and water for survival. Homes often provide a great option and a minor problem can rapidly become a major infestation. These pesky pests are extremely difficult for homeowners to control on their own as each species requires a different method of treatment.


Mosquitoes Threat Level

The local population of mosquitoes is at its peak this time of year and these pests are much more than just an incredible nuisance to residents. They present a significant health risk due to diseases they carry like West Nile Virus and Encephalitis which can be transmitted to your family and pets through a single bite.


Fleas & Ticks Threat Level

During the warmest months, flea and tick populations are at their peak in our area. These pests reproduce very quickly and they have become increasingly resistant to common treatment methods which allows the breeding cycle to continue. Additionally, they pose a significant health risk to both humans and pets as any warm-blooded host will do.


Fire Ants Threat Level

Fire ant populations are at their highest this time of year. Keep an eye out for their signature mounds as wandering too close a nest can result in multiple stings from multiple ants in just a matter of seconds. In addition to their painful stings, fire ants can pose a real danger to those who suffer from allergic reactions.


Lawn Pests Threat Level

Florida’s hot weather and lush foliage provides the perfect conditions for lawn pests like chinch bugs, grubs, aphids and mites to thrive. These insects are the most active and at the highest population levels this time of year. They can cause significant damage, even killing lawns and plants in severe cases.


Spiraling White Fly Threat Level

At their peak this time of year, the rugose spiraling whitefly is more than just a nuisance to homeowners. They lay their eggs in spirals on the underside of leaves and then cover them in a waxy substance called honeydew. This substance is sticky and difficult to remove when it drops onto cars, homes and patios. Additionally, it damages the plants by removing water and nutrients.


Rodents Threat Level

Rodents like house mice, Norway rats and roof rats are a year-round problem in our area. They can enter your home through almost any opening or crack and reproduce very quickly making them difficult to control. They also transmit bacteria, can cause structural damage and carry fleas, ticks and mites into the home when they move in.


Carpenter Bees Threat Level

Carpenter Bees are still very active right now, although not at their peak. These large bees resemble bumble bees, but their bare, shiny black abdomen is the best way to tell the difference. They can cause significant damage as they bore holes in wood including decks, shingles, fences and window sills to lay their eggs. The male bees are the most aggressive, however, they do not have stingers. The female bees will sting, but only if provoked.


Stinging Insects Threat Level

Wasps, Hornets and Yellowjackets send over 500,000 people to the emergency room each year and their populations are high in our area this time of year. These pests are very territorial and will attack in large numbers if they feel threatened. Residents should avoid nests and cover food and drink when outdoors to avoid an unwanted air assault.


Squirrels Threat Level

Squirrels are most active during the colder months, but can still seek shelter indoors. Signs of these unwanted guests include scratching or scurrying in your walls or attic and droppings found in pantries, along baseboards or in the attic.


Wildlife Threat Level

Furry pests like squirrels, raccoons and roof rats are most active during the colder months, but can still seek shelter indoors. Signs of these unwanted guests include scratching or scurrying in your walls or attic and droppings found in pantries, along baseboards or in the attic.
