    Unfortunately, pest control doesn’t always mean tiny insect infestations. In fact, much larger animals can be an issue. In West Palm Beach, pest control may include preventing raccoons or bats from making your home their own. Both of these animals have been known to get into chimneys, attics, and other spaces in your home to build an area for themselves.

    Typically, bats will rest in the chimney or the attic and then go find food at night outside in the wild. The problem with bats is not only the property damage they can cause, but also the fact that their feces can be dangerous to humans. Moreover, they can carry additional pests into your home like fleas and ticks. Raccoons are much the same way. They will not only find a place to nest inside the chimney or the attic, but they may find a way into the kitchen to steal food. Plus, they may be cute, but they can also be dangerous little creatures. They, too, can carry ticks and fleas into your home. The damage they create may also prove an engraved invitation you’re your home.

    As with is the case with most areas of the country, West Palm Beach pest control may also include getting rid of rodents or rats from the inside of homes. These animals, too, can bring other pests into your home, but it’s not limited to fleas and ticks. They may also prove an invitation for voles, snakes, and other pest problems.

    Insect Problems

    Ants, termites, roaches, palmetto bugs and bed bugs are also prevalent in this area and may require West Palm Beach pest control to rid of the infestation. Just outside a home in this area you may find bees, ticks, wasps and spiders that must be dealt with using some form of West Palm Beach pest control.

    Whether the South Florida pest control problem is inside or outside the home, it is important to get it checked out and taken care of. Ignoring the problem will only lead to stress and possibly ill effects on the health of those living in the home.
