Residential Pest Control In Lakewood Park

Most homeowners already have enough bills to pay, so they may think that professional residential pest control is too expensive for their homes. In reality, professional residential pest control is typically much less expensive than DIY pest control. This is because DIY pest control usually lets pests get out of control. This can wind up costing you big.

Termites are a good example of this phenomenon. You might think you can put out a few termite baits and have no worries. But these store-bought baits typically just kill a few individuals at best. They can temporarily reduce the termite load in your house, but they almost never wipe out the infestation. This means termites keep right on destroying your home even if you think you've gotten rid of them. 

Far from being the only pest that can resist DIY pest control efforts, termites are just one of many pests that can keep right on destroying your property or spreading disease despite your best efforts to stop them. The good news is you don't have to deal with your infestations alone. 

Here at HomeShield Pest Control, our pest experts keep up to date with the latest and greatest tools and techniques for dealing with all the pests endemic to Florida. Our residential pest control programs cover a wide variety of pests, and we also offer targeted treatments to deal with specific infestations. 

Commercial Pest Control In Lakewood Park

If you think residential pest control is hard, commercial pest control is even harder. You have a lot less control over a commercial space between snacking employees leaving crumbs in the break room and clients coming in and out, swinging the door wide for flying insects. This makes taking care of your own pest problems exponentially harder in a commercial space. 

The stakes are also a lot higher in commercial spaces. Pests in your home can infect your family with diseases and destroy your personal property. Pests in your business can endanger your family and the community, destroy your business's reputation, and by extension, your bottom line. They can also lead to lawsuits and fines, and even closure. 

To protect yourself, put the pest experts at HomeShield Pest Control to work at your workplace. Our commercial pest control services are set up to deal with every Florida pest in a wide variety of Florida businesses, including those in the hospitality, medical, and food preparation industries. 

Is Professional Mosquito Treatment Right For My Lakewood Park Home?

There are a few things you can do to keep mosquitoes away from your property. One of the best ways to keep mosquitoes at bay is to get rid of the standing water on your property. Mosquitoes lay eggs in stagnant water, and they generally don't fly too far from where they were born to breed. This means minimizing nearby standing water is a good way to encourage them to bugger off. 

What makes mosquito control a lot harder is the fact that you don't have control over all the standing water that could be close to your house. Maybe you live near a retention pond or a creek or even just a place that floods a lot. If that's the case – and it almost always is in Florida – you'll need professional mosquito control. HomeShield Pest Control has the right products and techniques to help you get rid of mosquitoes no matter how close you live to a body of water.

How Professional Rodent Removal Helps Lakewood Park Homeowners

Rodents are another pest that most people can't seem to shake. They breed so fast that things like snap traps and store-bought baits are pitiful in the face of their exponential population growth. Not to mention these rodent control methods are dangerous to pets and kids. 

Fortunately, there are better ways to get rid of rodents:

  • Make your house less attractive to mice and rats by covering garbage and storing pantry foods in airtight containers. 
  • Make your house harder to enter by sealing up cracks and holes rodents can use to get inside. 
  • Make your house more dangerous for rodents by hiring a professional pest control service. 

Here at HomeShield Pest Control, we can do what over-the-counter poisons and traps just can't – actually eliminate your rodent problem. So if you've got rats and mice taking over your life, contact us today!
