Why Year-Round Pest Control Is A Great Idea For Your Miami-Dade County Home
January 28, 2021
Miami has something for everyone. No matter if you moved South for the warmer weather or you’re a lifelong citizen with a 305 area-code on your cell phone, you can have the time of your life in South Florida. Unfortunately, though, this ideal year-round weather does have a downside: there’s no frost to kill the bugs. That’s why South Florida is notorious for year-round pests that can put your health and home at risk.
South Florida Pest Problems
Due to the lack of wintry weather, you’ll have to deal with pest problems in your Miami-Dade County home all twelve months of the year. While some pests dissipate in the cooler months, you’ll still deal with many of the household insects like ants, spiders, fleas, ticks, roaches, and many more. And it isn’t just their presence in your homes that should concern you; it’s what kind of risks an infestation will bring along with it.
The home-invading pests of South Florida are not just a nuisance, they can be a severe hazard to your home and health. Ants and roaches pose a threat to your stored food supplies while also carrying harmful bacteria all over your home. Fleas and ticks can also cause serious diseases in pets and humans. Plus, let’s not forget about rodents: mice, squirrels, and rats will carry dangerous diseases along with sharp teeth that can damage many of the structures and stored items in your home. Then, of course, there are the termites who thrive in the warm, humid conditions in our area, putting your home at risk of thousands of dollars’ worth of damage.
DIY (Do It Yourself) Prevention Efforts
Another troubling aspect of year-round pest problems is the fact that many of these pests can be impossible to get rid of. Roaches are incredibly formidable, and ants will just keep coming back. Also, fleas, ticks, and rodents will all enter your home whenever they want to and reproduce very quickly within your walls. Termites, on the other hand, will eat your home in silence, leaving you unsuspecting until severe damage is done.
The real problems arise when homeowners try to deal with these pests on a case-to-case basis. We understand that you’re busy. After all, it’s Miami, one of the most exciting cities in the world. However, trying to handle pests on your own with shortcut home remedies will only increase the damage and diseases that they can inflict on your home and health. Take rodents for instance. You might want to lay out a few traps or some poison, but they’ll actually reproduce at faster rates than you can capture them. And if you do happen to stumble upon a nest in your home, that’s a dangerous encounter with an unhappy mother waiting to happen.
