Home maintenance is nobody’s idea of a good time, but it is a vital part of keeping your house safe, pleasant to live in and at its full market value. With seasonal homes especially, it can difficult to carry out maintenance work, or to even know it needs doing when you’re not there to see and monitor what is going on. One of the most annoying on-going maintenance issues is pest infestation, as it can happen so quickly and reach really troublesome levels in no time at all.
In the Florida area, the top three pests are ants, cockroaches and rodents. While they each have their own methods of invading your home, they have three things in common: they’re tough, they’re resourceful and they all have an army of offspring for you to do battle with. Ant colonies have thousands of ants and they spread germs and bacteria in their quest for food. Most are harmless, although some ants will bite pets or humans. Roaches, like ants, spread bacteria, as well as producing eggs which can cause asthma and allergies. Rodents are quiet, sneaky and elusive, making it difficult to catch them, although their droppings and signs of nesting material, such as shredded paper, give them away. They are very nimble and can fit into surprisingly small gaps and cracks. Rodents are capable of chewing holes in walls or floors to get to a food source. They spread diseases to humans through direct and indirect contact. Other types of nasties found in Jupiter include fleas, bed bugs, dry wood termites and silverfish. Affecting both inside and outside areas, if left unresolved, they can become a real problem.
