Ants, Roaches, Silverfish, Fleas, Ticks, Bed Bugs, Spiders, Weevils.
Interior treatment is a standard treatment method in pest control. For some, (condos, apartments), it's the only treatment method possible. For others, it adds another layer of protection. Interior treatment can include:
Spray: Insecticidal spray inside of home. Can include treatment around baseboards, entry points, and near plumbing.
Baiting: Application of insecticidal baits in specific targeted areas. Baits are usually applied to solve existing problems, not so much for prevention.
Dusting: Application of insecticidal dust in enclosed spaces or wall voids, (attics, electrical outlets, etc.). Dust can disrupt an active nest and can prevent new nests from developing in some cases.
Fogging: Treatment utilizing an airborne insecticide. Fogging treatments are typically used in heavy infestations of roaches, fleas, or bedbugs, and usually require the home to be vacated. Fogging provides a consistent layer of insecticide over the entire area.
Ants, Roaches, Silverfish, Fleas, Ticks, Millipedes, Spiders.
Exterior treatment is perhaps the most common application of pest control. In South Florida, most pests come from outside. Exterior treatments are a very effective way to prevent these pests from entering our homes. Some examples of exterior treatment methods Hero Pest Solutions can offer are:
Spray: Insecticidal spray outside of home. Can include treatment around the perimeter of home, entry points, underneath eaves, and shrubbery/lawn around the home.
Baiting: Application of insecticidal baits around the perimeter of the home. Baits are usually applied outside to solve existing problems, or to divert activity away from home.
Spiderweb Removal: Knocking down of spiderwebs along outside of the home, (under eaves, inside patio, etc.).
Rodents are a common problem in South Florida. Hero Pest Solutions offers many different treatment methods to control rodents:
Trapping: When rodents are present inside of the home, the most common form of control is setting traps. Snap traps, glue boards, and live traps are normally used to control live infestations of rodents.
Bait Stations: A very effective form of rodent prevention is the placement of bait stations around the property. These discrete boxes securely lock and hold a rodenticide that will attract and kill any rodents that consume its contents.
Exclusion: This service focuses on how the rodents are getting into the structure. Many times, small holes or gaps can be the doorway rodents use to enter your home. The exclusion service seals these entry points, preventing future rodent issues.
Bees, Wasps, Yellow Jackets.
Bees are a very important part of our ecosystem. Protecting them is a responsibility Hero Pest Solutions takes very seriously. For that reason, we offer both extermination and relocation services. We also offer extermination services for bees and wasp, hornet, and yellow jacket nests. We offer the following two methods for bee treatments:
Spraying: Insecticidal spraying of the beehive.
Vacuuming: We will use a special bee removal vacuum to vacuum the beehive and relocate the bees.
Bed Bugs are notorious for being difficult to get rid of. There are several treatment methods Hero Pest Solutions utilize to control this troublesome pest. We use a combination of the following treatment methods:
Spray: Treatment includes the application of a liquid insecticide specifically formulated to control bed bugs. Chemical treatment for bed bugs varies in efficiency, as bed bugs constantly adapt to survive these chemicals.
Vacuuming: A simple solution to a big problem. Vacuuming the bedding will physically remove bed bugs and their eggs.
Heat: Bed bugs normally cannot survive in temperatures above 120 degrees F. Treatment with heat includes the use of steam to combat bed bugs as well as their eggs.
Rats, Mice, Opossums, Raccoons, Foxes.
This service is designed to remove an animal alive from your home or property. Many traps are ineffective with bigger animals, so animal cages are used to catch the animal live. Once the animal is caught, it is removed from your property and taken to an approved drop off area miles away from your home.
Drywood Termite Treatment
Drywood Termites eat and live in hard, dry wood. Sounds obvious, but that wood acts as a protectant, and makes it difficult to detect, or even treat, these termites. There are different treatment methods you can use to solve your Drywood Termite problem:
Liquid Treatment: This treatment method involves the use of a liquid termiticide applied directly to or inside of infested wood. A mist can be applied topically on wood, and foam can be injected inside of wood. This treatment doesn't involve any evacuation, usually offers a residual, (a layer of termiticide that can prevent future infestations for years in many cases), and is usually a less expensive alternative to tenting. Treatment can be done for live infestations and preventively.
Tenting: Tenting is a very common solution to eradicating Drywood Termites. A tent is put over your structure and gas is pumped into the tent. The building must be vacated, and it usually takes 3-5 days before you can re-enter the tented structure. Tenting usually kills all pest activity in the home but doesn't provide any residual protection. HERO PEST SOLUTIONS DOES NOT PROVIDE TENTING SERVICES AT THIS TIME. Tenting is only listed here for comparison purposes.
Subterranean Termite Treatment
Subterranean Termites, Formosean Termites.
Subterranean Termites live underground and prefer to feed on soft, moist wood. Dead trees and rotting wood on your property could be attractants for Subterranean Termites. Treatment includes the application of a termiticide in the soil these termites are nesting in. Treatment can be done for live infestations and preventively. Soil treatment includes:
Trenching: This treatment method includes digging a trench around the perimeter of the structure and filling the trench with a termiticide.
Drilling: If the perimeter of the structure is concrete, drilling may be the only option. A hole is drilled through the concrete, and the termiticide is injected into the drilled hole, saturating the soil underneath.
Baiting: In-ground bait stations are another way to treat subterranean termite colonies. We offer both installation and refilling these stations.
Ficus, Spiraling Whitefly.
Whitefly can cause major damage to the plant life around your home. In only a matter of months, they can leave your shrubs looking like mere sticks coming out of the ground. Treatment is usually done with a combination of insecticide and fertilizer, both foliar, (topically to the remaining leaves), and to the roots. After a few months, your plants can bounce back healthier than ever.
