Protect Your Home From Common Florida Pests

Florida is a great place to live year-round. We’ve got warm weather, beautiful ocean views, and plenty of sunshine. Unfortunately, for the same reasons that we love Florida, so do bugs and insects. Thanks to our beautiful sunny climate, Florida pests stay active pretty much all year long. You won’t find local pests hibernating as they do in other parts of the country during these winter months. Cockroaches, termites, ants, and other common Florida bugs and pests never take a break, and neither should you. You must stay vigilant and prepared in order to keep them out of your home!

It can’t be stressed enough how important the tie between a clean house and pest prevention is. It sounds pretty simple, but it’s true. Wipe the counters and table after you finish making your meals and snacks, keep the garbage wrapped tight, and keep all food in the fridge or in containers that are well sealed. The same goes for the outside, too. If you’ve dined outside on the patio, be sure you’ve discarded all of your leftovers and sweep or hose down the patio to clear away crumbs.

Of course, year-round pest control services are the single, most efficient way to keep bugs out. Some insects, like termites, silently invade your home and do damage long before you realize they are even there. Year-round pest control in Cape Coral can safeguard your home before pests can move in.
