As part of the Jacksonville metropolitan area, Yulee experiences the same hot summers and mild winters as the city does, and as with the rest of Florida, humidity is virtually a constant. There's little to no snowfall in the area, but the rain averages about 50 inches per year, mostly falling in the spring and summer.
This type of climate is perfect for termites and other wood-destroying pests thrive in, so residents have to be especially careful about an infestation. At Bug Out, we'll be happy to inspect your property for termites, ants, cockroaches, and other common invaders.
Moisture will dampen wood structures, making them ideal for termites to infest. The two most common species of termites in our area are the Eastern subterranean and drywood termites; though in our area, the most widespread is the Eastern subterranean termite. This type of termite lives in moist soil and only goes out at feeding time, so one of the best ways to exterminate them is to set up bait in ground, which they will carry back to their colonies. If we do this, we can provide continuous baiting 24/7/365.
Drywood termites don't live in soil but in dry wood, and they're common to coastal regions like our own Jacksonville area. Our team offer fumigation for structures with an infestation of drywood termites.
Ants often make their home in and around the foundations of homes, especially around leaky pipe or other places where there is moisture. Ants are often mistaken for termites. A Bug Out professional can apply product and baits in strategic areas to keep these pests at a minimum.
Cockroaches love warm, humid weather and often snuggle up into cracks and crevices, where insecticides can be hard to reach. Some might recommend that you use an aerosol spray on those areas, but we don't advise doing this yourself, as it can easily harm your health. Our employees are fully licensed and insured and use eco-friendly extermination techniques.
Mosquitoes love humidity, and while they won't cause any structural damage like termites, they will be attracted to you, especially when you're sweating out in the heat. Some mosquitoes can carry deadly diseases like Zika and West Nile Virus, never mind the painful bites they leave behind. If you call us, we'll seek out the breeding areas, usually found around ponds and other areas where there's standing water.
If you have several different invaders in your home or on your property, know that Bug Out offers a discount when clients chose us for multiple services. The next time you suspect an infestation or for preventative measures, give us a call. We have a full-time, in-house training team that keeps us up to date on the best treatments for pests in the Yulee area.
