Pest Control In South Beach, FL

We've got a lot going for us here in South Beach. Aside from the amazing beaches, we've got great nightlife spots, warm winters, and tons of fun things to do in the sun! However, we've got to pay the price for all these perks, and pest woes are a big part of that price. Miami-Dade County pest control is no day at the beach, and that goes for residential and commercial properties alike. Fortunately, you don't have to take your pest problems lying down. 

Residential Pest Control In South Beach

Florida is one of the worst places in the United States for many pests, and South Beach is one of the worst places in Florida for many pest issues! Common pests you'll encounter in your South Beach home include termites, cockroaches, rodents, and ants. Because of the sheer number of different pests you could wind up with, and the stubbornness of pest infestations once they establish themselves, residential pest control is the way to go for your home.

It's easy for homeowners to start out strong doing their own pest control and then fizzle out as other demands take precedence. It's also very difficult for homeowners to spot pest problems in the early stages. So they end up accidentally letting problems get worse than they need to. 

Here at HomeShield Pest Control, our experts are trained to notice the subtle signs of pest infestations. And since keeping pests out of your home is literally our job, you can rest assured we'll get it done, no matter what.

Guide To Bed Bug Detection In South Beach

Bed bugs in Florida are stealthy pests, in part because they're not native to our area, so most people don't think of them when they think of Florida pest problems. However, Florida is one of the top vacation destinations in the country, and this means that bed bugs can be a particular problem for us because there's so much travel going on in our state. Travel is one of the main ways you wind up with bed bugs. When you stay in a hotel, you're always at risk of contracting bed bugs, especially in heavily trafficked hotels in major tourist areas. 

If you're worried you might have gotten bed bugs from traveling around our state or somewhere else, there are some signs you can look for. Major signs of a bed bug infestation include:

  • Tiny blood stains on sheets. 
  • Bed bug eggs and feces in the bed.
  • Shed bed bug exoskeletons. 
  • Actual bed bugs. 

That last sign on the list is the one you're least likely to see. Bed bugs are really good at hiding, and they also only come out while you're sleeping. This means seeing live bugs is rare, even when you have a bed bug issue. You should look for the other signs first. If you do find these signs, don't wait until your infestation is so bad that you're seeing live bugs. Call HomeShield Pest Control immediately.

Can Essential Oils Keep Mosquitoes Away From My South Beach Property?

Mosquitoes in Florida are a huge problem pretty much everywhere, thanks to our warm and humid environment. Because of this, there are a lot of rumors going around about natural ways to repel mosquitoes. Many people on the internet say that essential oils are a great way to keep mosquitoes out of your yard. These claims do have a grain of truth, as essential oils are a great way to keep mosquitoes away from yourself, but they're not so great for your property. 

A better natural way of dealing with mosquitoes is planting herbs and flowers mosquitoes hate, like:

  • Rosemary
  • Lavender
  • Mint
  • Citronella
  • Lemongrass

Getting rid of all standing water on your property is another great way to keep mosquitoes from breeding. However, in Florida, there's standing water pretty much everywhere. This means that there is not really much of a way for you to get rid of all the standing water that mosquitoes could breed in close to your property. That's where HomeShield Pest Control comes in. We've got all the latest and greatest mosquito control techniques to ensure these disease-spreading and annoying pests stay away from your property, even if they're breeding nearby. So if you're having a mosquito problem, don't hesitate to call us. We can help get you through mosquito season unscathed.
