  • Do you hear scratching sounds during the night? Might be rats or mice!
  • Do you hear scratching sounds during the day? Might be squirrels!
  • It takes a professional to determine what you are dealing with.

Florida Pest Control now offers rodent control and exclusion services. You may be asking yourself, “Why would I need rodent control? There are no rats in my house.” They may not be there now, but if your home has openings that could allow a rodent entry, it’s only a matter of time before the rodents decide to move in. A mouse can enter openings as small as ¼”, a rat ½”. Based on their secretive behavior, rodents may be living in your home right now undetected!

At Florida Pest Control, our representatives are trained to locate areas of rodent activity and potential rodent entry points. Allow us to perform a rodent control inspection of your home or business to ensure that you are protected from these pests, so even when the cat’s away, the mice won’t play!

We also are offering our Commercial Disinfection Service. What is a “disinfection” service? A disinfection service is another type of pest control. In this case, the pests are microscopic and called pathogens. This group consists of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, etc.) that can cause disease. We often refer to them as germs.

Germs are all around us, and sometimes, due to the environment, are more active during certain times of the year. Think about the annual “flu season” which occurs when the air becomes cooler and dry. Other times, germs are introduced (spread) to an area by infected people or contaminated items (surfaces, food, etc.).

A disinfection service acts to reduce the quantity of germs on surfaces in a treated area. This temporarily removes one avenue that pathogens can be spread to people.

This disinfection service is only for commercial structures (businesses, schools, municipalities, restaurants, etc.) and commercial vehicles (rental cars, buses, etc.).

Contact us today for your “no obligation” inspection.
