MOSQUITOES

Summer time is in full swing- the heat, the rain, and of course those pesky mosquitoes. There is thought to be well over 70 species of mosquitoes in Florida. This is much higher than most other states. There are several species of mosquitoes that are known to spread pathogens that can cause diseases in humans, and in some cases animals. Most mosquitoes thrive where there is high moisture or water. Mosquitoes will lay their eggs in standing water and moist soil. Mosquitoes prefer a blood meal from a variety of hosts- i.e. humans, pets, wild animals and more! Mosquitoes undergo complete metamorphosis: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Mosquitoes have piercing mouthparts that are used to “bite” and/or extract blood from its desired host. A Mosquito “bite” can leave a white to reddish bump on your skin. Swelling may also occur around the bite site. For more information on mosquito bites, please call a healthcare professional/doctor.

Mosquitoes are no doubt a problem here in Southwest Florida. With that said, each county is in charge of mosquito control. However, Certified Pest Control of Naples is proud to offer a mosquito treatment, in addition to what the county offers, to help control the mosquitoes around your home or business.

Temperatures are going down in Naples and Ft. Myers, which means roof rats are popping up in people’s attics.  


Roof rats , also known as palm rats, are very active during the winter months. When the sun goes down in Southwest Florida, and temperatures drop to their lowest point in the night, roof rats retreat to indoor structures. Structures such as your attic, walls, and other warm and dark spaces. A non-native species, roof rats are typically black, but can be many different colors. They have tails longer than their body, and their ears are very large. They are a foraging animal, hoarding an abundance of food to sustain themselves over long periods of drought.  


What makes roof rats undesirable to a property owner? Their intrusive nesting behavior utilizes insulation from your walls, or other soft materials in your attic. The damage from this behavior is exponential over time. Electrical wiring may also be at risk of being chewed and severed. These rats reproduce every 2-4 months, and more rats means more nests are constructed out of these precious materials from your home. Another huge area of concern when it comes to roof rats is disease. As a carrier of all sorts of diseases which can be transmitted through touch, bites, or other insects, this is one the biggest reasons why you should have a licensed professional handle an infestation.
