IPM Exterminators

Southern Florida is basically heaven on earth to a wide variety of pests. Our climate is hot, humid, and wet, we have many bodies of standing water, and the winters here are extremely mild. If you own property anywhere in Boca Raton, then it’s inevitable that nuisance pests like fire ants, bees, termites, flies, rodents, and bed bugs will try to invade your property. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Florida is also home to a growing number of invasive bugs, including crazy ants and Formosan subterranean termites.

But no matter your pest problem, IPM Pest Control is the solution. IPM Pest Control is the full-service exterminator Boca Raton residents can depend on to help with the most stubborn invasive pest problems. And unlike other Boca Raton exterminators, we reduce the hazards of pesticide use to the environment and human health by avoiding “blanket spraying” whenever possible.

Remember: at the first sign of a pest infestation, you need the best full-service exterminator Boca Raton has to offer.

Termite Exterminators in Boca Raton, Florida

You may not even realize that you have a termite issue, as many people mistake them for ants. But these insects are much more than a nuisance. If not handled quickly, termites can destroy nearly everything in their path, including walls, books, foundations, beams, pool liners, roofs, plants, and more.

With the abundance of natural foliage in Boca Raton, termites are always within striking distance of your property. Some of the signs of an active termite colony are obvious, while some may only be spotted by a trusted professional like IPM Pest Control.

If you own a home or property of any kind, here are some common signs of termites:

Hollow wood: Sometimes it’s tough to actually see the damage that termites can do. They feed on the inside of the wood structures, so there is no visible damage. You may notice hollow wood when you hammer a nail into your wall or make other home improvements.

Visible termites: While these insects are able to sneak around pretty inconspicuously, you may still be able to detect their presence. Insects will shed their exoskeletons, including their wings, while they are still growing. If you find discarded wings in your home, you may have found a colony.

Cracked wood: Wooden siding is especially attractive to termites, as they can burrow into homes more easily. Additionally, check exhaust vents, small openings along the foundation, or small openings to windows and doors for unexplained cracks or holes.

Mud tubes: Termites build mud tubes along exterior surfaces when they go and look for food. If you see mud tubes along the interior or exterior of your home, call an exterminator immediately.

Frass: Frass are black and brown wood-colored droppings left by termites. If you find piles of sawdust-like frass beneath wooden structures, call an exterminator.

Ant Control in Boca Raton

Boca Raton is home to a number of troublesome ants, but homeowners should be especially wary of the so-called “super colony” ant species that live in the area. We offer full-service pest control solutions for dealing with ants like:

Fire Ants: These notorious swarming ants pack a powerful bite, and are all too common in Florida. While no one wants fire ants in their backyard, especially if they have children or pets, fire ant colonies are especially problematic for commercial properties.

Super Colony Ants: This category includes Big Headed, Tawny Crazy, and White Footed ants. A Big Headed colony can easily contain millions of ants. Tawny Crazy ants, also known as raspberry crazy ants, are a new species that is strangely attracted to electrical devices.

Bloodsucking Insects

Fleas, ticks, and bed bugs are some of the most stress-inducing pests on the planet.
