What to Expect from South Florida Pest Control

What to Expect from South Florida Pest Control

Pests such as bed bugs, rodents, termites, and whiteflies pose a very serious threat to both residential and commercial structures and also to the health of your family members. Whether they are those that fly or just the creepy-crawlers, you need to ensure you protect your property. How do you do this? How do you make sure all the pests that infest your home are eliminated and controlled?

One thing you need to understand is that the process of eliminating pests is not a one-time project; it is a process that needs effective planning and implementation, from the identification to the actual treatment. This is especially true for South Florida residents because the area has had quite a number of cases of pest infestations due to its moist climate and lush areas. Here’s what to expect when you contact a South Florida pest control expert

Complimentary Consultation

It does not matter how well your house is constructed. It also does not matter how clean you keep your home. Some pests such as termites are very organized and can show up in your home without you noticing. If you have a family pet in your home you cannot completely rule out the presence of other pests such as fleas. With each spring you find yourself dealing with common household pests such as spiders, ticks, fleas, ants, termites, rats, or cockroaches. The first step to identifying and treating infestations of pests is consulting a pest control professional in Pompano Beach.

When you choose the right pest control firm in Florida, chances are that you will get a free consultation so that the experts can have a general idea of what you are dealing with and provide the proper treatment plans and recommendations.  You will be asked to fill out a form with general information, including your name and address, and information about what you have been experiencing with your current pest problems. If your problem has to do with termites or you suspect termites, mention it immediately. 

Pest Identification

To get a clear picture about the kind of pests you are dealing with, most Pompano Beach pest control experts will visit your property and begin the assessment phase. Different pests require different treatment options to get rid of them. This is the main reason why these professionals must first do the initial identification. If your home is infested with termites, they must know what kind of termites, whether the dry-wood type, subterranean type, or damp wood termites. This is also true for other pests such as bees, bed bugs, and beetles.

Experts use highly-specialized tools that accurately identify presence of any pests. Don’t worry if termites are deep within your house walls or ceiling. The tools will allow them to know what pests you  are facing without having to break or tear apart your floors, ceilings, or walls. Experienced pest control professionals are trained and have a keen eye to identify the kind of pests that are giving you sleepless nights.

Implementing a treatment plan

Just as mentioned above, treatments for pests differ from one to another. Let’s cover a few options so that you can get an idea what happens during treatment.

  • Bait system. This method is conducted by simply placing monitoring stations throughout the infested area and then the area is checked for activity. If any activity is detected then insecticide bait is inserted to catch it.
  • Borate treatment. Borates are basically odorless that have been tested and passed as safe for your family and household pets. They come in form of foam, liquid, or powder. These chemicals are effective for treating a wide range of pests from termites to bugs to ants.
  • No-tent Drywood termite treatment. This treatment option involves the application of Termiticide on all the affected areas, whether in form of liquid, dust, or foam. The Termiticide may also be applied to other parts of your home such as the attic, where wood can be accessed easily by pests.
  • Tent fumigation. This treatment is focused on pests that have proven almost impossible to reach. Experts also use it to reach termites that have more than two colonies. It involves erecting a tent around the affected area and filling it with gaseous pesticides that poison or suffocate all pests within.
  • Lawn spraying– this treatment option involves applying pesticides to your lawn through spraying. This helps eradicate pests such as termites and beetles that may otherwise destroy your plants and the garden.

Follow Up

Once the pest control experts are done with the treatment phase, they don’t just stop there and go their way. Experienced pest control specialists in Pompano Beach stay to ensure their treatments work as expected without any harm to the environment or people around. At this stage they can choose to add more pesticides or employ other options if there are some pests that prove difficult to eliminate. A good pest control firm will walk with you all the way until the intended purpose is effectively met.

Getting rid of pests from your home or business premise can be quite a tricky endeavor, especially if you don’t know anything about pest control. If you feel that termites, bed bugs, or any other common household pests have taken a toll on you, it is recommended that you avoid attempting to identify and treat the problem prior to consulting South Florida pest control specialists. Once you get the free consultation, the experts will assess your premises and identify the pest problem and give you a quote. If you give them the green light, they can then implement their treatment plan and follow up to ensure everything runs as planned.
