The year-round good weather in Boca Raton is what attracted many to the Boca Bridges community – common pests included! Pest control services ensure that you don’t have to share your home with these unwanted visitors.

Common Pests

Cockroaches. Even a sparklingly clean kitchen is no guarantee that cockroaches won’t present themselves because they are resistant to many chemicals and poisons.


Ants. Although particularly prevalent when their eggs hatch in spring, ants are a year-round nuisance. The best way to get rid of them is to exterminate them in winter while they are laying high quantities of eggs in their nests.

Earwigs. Despite being harmless, earwigs are not a pleasant find in damp nooks and crannies. Their eggs hatch as moisture levels rise, so you will see more of them as we move from spring into the summer months.

Limit moisture by keeping your home – and especially bathrooms – well ventilated and keep things such as wet towels off the floors.


Wasps. Summer and wasps are synonymous. Hundreds of newly hatched wasps are housed in a queen’s small paper nest until summer when the colony takes over and nest-building commences at speed.

Once you have wasps’ nests near your home, you can expect to see more each year. Colonies need to be destroyed or relocated.

Termites. Most commonly occurring inside tree stumps and underground, termites give their location away with discarded wings and mounds of their sawdust next to exterior walls.


Rodents. Their bad rap is justified, as rodents not only spread disease, but they also reproduce quickly. Although they are nocturnal animals, you will know when they need to be exterminated when you hear them by night or find their droppings by day.


Fleas, ticks, crickets, and spiders. It’s not that these critters don’t exist in summer, it is just that fleas, ticks, crickets, and spiders are more likely to seek warmth and shelter in your home during the colder months.
