Located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and north of Palm Beach, Juno Beach is a popular beach community. On rainy days, locals and visitors enjoy visiting the Loggerhead Marinelife Center to learn more about the ocean's ecosystem. On sunny days, you can toss your line into the ocean for a little fishing from the Juno Beach Pier or head to Juno Beach Park to play in the sand, soak up the sun, or splash in the waves. With plenty of warm and humid weather, you're likely to find critters invading your home at one time or another.

Common Pest Control Problems

After a detailed inspection of your home, our team identifies the bugs and insects currently not paying rent in your home and evict them with a plan catered to your specific needs. Here's a look at some of the most common pests that we encounter in Juno Beach homes.
Ants at a picnic are one thing, but a parade of ants making their way through your kitchen is something else entirely. These common pests present their own unique challenge because of the numerous types. Ants are bigger pests because they remember where they found a source of food and water and will return to it over and over, including your home. Ants aren't necessarily a health risk for most people; there are some people who are allergic to ant bites and break out into hives if bitten.
Wasps and Bees
These insects fly and bite. A bee or wasp sting can be very painful, and in some cases, an allergy can threaten a person's life when stung. When it comes to stings, wasps are a larger threat because they can sting multiple times. Removing wasps requires killing all the insects first and then removing their nests With bees, there isn't an order for removal. They can do a lot of damage when they choose to build their nests inside your home. In some cases, the nests of bees and wasps are found inside the walls.
Due to the moderate weather throughout the winter months in Florida, fleas present a danger to you and your pets throughout the year. There isn't a season when they aren't an issue although spring and summer are when you find the largest infestations inside a home. Your outdoor pets bring these critters into the home on their bodies so as long as you have pets that go indoors and outdoors, fleas will remain an issue.
Mice and Rats
Mice and rats are more than a nuisance. These rodents can tear up your home and leave dropping around the space while breeding very quickly. Mice and rats can carry diseases that they can pass on to humans. These pests were responsible for the Plague. A rat or mouse with rabies can bite and infect your household pets as well. Our technicians will set traps to rid your home of these pests. They can also guide you on ways to keep them at bay.
These insects were the only living thing found after the first nuclear tests in the United States, which makes them pretty resilient. These pests like to hang out in dark, dank places, and you can also find them nesting in newspapers, a pile of papers, and books. Many people think that roaches are only attracted to dirty homes but that isn't true, even the cleanest home can find itself faced with a roach infestation.
Silverfish are very common pests in the Juno Beach area. These critters are destructive in your storage area as moths are to your closets. Silverfish enjoy chewing up papers and making their nests. Even a small swarm of silverfish can eat the bottom of a box out, snack on your children's old books, and the paperwork that you have on your home. You find these pests primarily in the attic and bathroom, where they find it more comfortable to breed. If you find one skittering out from underneath a box, you should call us immediately.
Some people are deathly afraid of all spiders even though not all of these critters are dangerous. There are some spiders that can bite you and cause serious illness or even death in rare cases. Spiders build webs almost anywhere, and if you see one in your home, you have spiders somewhere. Some of the most common spiders found in Florida include:
- Brown Recluse Spiders
- Crab Spiders
- Daddy Long Legs Spiders
- Golden Silk Ord-Weaver Spiders
- Jumping Spiders
- Brown and Black Widow Spiders
Termites don't pose a threat to you or your health, but these critters can destroy your home. A colony of termites can happily munch away on your home until your faced with structural damage. In fact, termites are so damaging that many homes require a termite inspection before a sale can close. If caught early enough, you can easily treat them. However, in extreme cases, we need to tent your home and treat it over several days.
