Keep Pests from Haunting Your House

Do you hear scary noises and scuffling sounds in your attic, garage or crawl space? You may have RODENTS!

Once inside, rats and other pests can do more than just provide their fair share of scares. They are capable of contaminating food, spreading disease and posing a threat to property. Rodents can spread Salmonella and Hantavirus and create fire hazards by gnawing through electrical wires in the home. They trigger allergies and asthma, especially in kids.

Rodents move inside as temperatures start to drop in South Florida.

Creepy Crawlies – Roaches spread disease and also cause allergy and asthma attacks! They date back to Prehistoric times and outlived the dinosaurs, flourishing today!

Headless Horseman? – Cockroaches can live a whole week without their heads! The headless cockroach will eventually die from thirst – because they have no mouth to drink with.

Webs are not just a scary Halloween decoration – they are an all too real sign of spiders. Spiders can administer a painful bite when disturbed. Florida is also home to some truly poisonous varieties – Black and Brown Widows – DANGER!

Real Life Bloodsucking Vampires? Bed Bugs attack you while you sleep – like Vampires they come out at night. They inject their own “anesthetic” that numbs you while you sleep so you usually do not wake up! They engorge themselves and fatten up with your blood – shades of Dracula! These creepy crawlers can’t fly and don’t travel far – they hitch hike on luggage, people’s clothing, etc. and hide from view.
