How to Get Rid of Pests in Jacksonville, Florida

Jacksonville, Florida Pest Control Options

Jacksonville

Jacksonville, Florida is a haven for those who enjoy spending time outdoors in the beautiful weather including pests. The humidity and moderate temperatures of the Sunshine State are ideal for cockroaches, garden spiders and everyone's favorite: mosquitoes. Florida’s winter are usually mild, so pests remain active year-round. If you’re looking for a way to reduce the number of pests around your home, it’s essential to choose the right pest control.

Solving the Outdoor Pest Problem

Many people experiencing a pest infestation in Jacksonville, Florida initially choose to go the do-it-yourself route. This normally means spending lots of money on candles, mosquito repellant sprays, screening in their back decks and many other time-consuming and inefficient solutions.

Candles can help keep mosquitoes away, as long as you’re standing right next to them. If you decide to venture a few feet away, those little flying nuisances will be right back to biting. Since you probably don’t want to spend your entire evening huddled around a candle, finding another repellant is in your best interest.

You always have the option of using a spray-on repellant, and this may seem more convenient and effective than a candle.  However, sprays can be harmful to your health if they get into your eyes, nose or mouth during application. In addition, they aren't a good option for those with little kids.

Screening in your back porch is an effective way to keep mosquitoes out, but at that point you've essentially turned the outdoors into the indoors, which negates the appeal of a beautiful back deck. Not only that, but if you decide to venture outside of your screened-in area, you no longer have protection, which means that you will once again become prey to mosquitoes.

At first, it may seem like these DIY solutions are cost effective and work to keep pests away, but it won’t take long to realize that the price continues to climb using any of these solutions. If you have a large property, then you have to buy many candles to keep the mosquitoes away, and if you are using spray, you have to keep re-applying to keep you and your family shielded. Screening in a porch is a major construction project, and you have to deal with the noise and mess that comes with that undertaking.

Finding a Better Solution

 

It’s not a bad thing to want to take care of the mosquito issue around your house on your own, but to ensure it’s done right, you really need a professional.
