At O’Hara Pest Control, our experts strive to provide you with the most efficient means to eradicating pests as soon as possible!
Fleas are insects that are commonly found in animal fur as well as human hair. With their elongated body, this enables them to maneuver freely throughout fine hairs. However, you should be aware that fleas tend to bite skin and suck blood from their host.
The rapid reproductive processes make fleas ideal for being invasive pests. A female flea can lay, on average up to 300 eggs at one time. In just two to three days, the fleas will hatch and reach adult maturity in less than two weeks.
With the warm South Florida climate, fleas can harbor in homes and the outdoors very easily. Although cat fleas are more common than dog fleas, their bites can transfer serious illnesses such as typhus and the plague. As your pest control in Jupiter, we make it our priority to provide high-quality treatment so you can get the relief you need!
Ticks are tiny insects that are known for carrying harmful illnesses with each bite. They are most commonly found on household pets and can even come into contact with humans. Ticks reach the size of about a sunflower with elongated legs. They suck blood and can leave small, red patches after they’ve finished, and move on to the next host.
A tick bite can be deadly and cause serious conditions such as:
Pay attention to these symptoms, because this typically indicates an infestation. That’s why you need to contact your pest control in Jupiter. With the leading experts in the business, no one can treat tick infestations like we do.
Have you ever seen whiteflies on your greenery? They might appear harmless; however, they can become a nuisance if not treated. They are small, flying insects that like to travel in groups. As a result, this makes whiteflies very resistant to most major pesticides.
The whiteflies themselves only account for half an inch and are commonly mistaken for dried sap on leaves. They are most aggressive during the summer months because the whiteflies are searching for an escape from the heat.
You should be concerned about whiteflies if you notice that plants are dying more than usual. This could include leaves turning yellow and odd fungal diseases that can affect plant growth. If they do become uncontrollable around your home or business, this is the perfect time to contact your pest control in Jupiter!
To keep whiteflies under control, we utilize the latest treatment methods including:
Safer® Soap is an insecticide that is sprayed directly on top of the leaves of plants. It is a liquid solution that is composed of potassium salt in order to weaken whiteflies’ outer barrier, or shell.
Yellow sticky traps
Yellow sticky traps are weatherproof and are intended to attract whiteflies. They can be cut to a specific size for large outdoor areas or smaller for single plant use. The base of the trap is made up of cardboard and coated with a yellow adhesive to trap whiteflies.
Another effective pesticide is the use of horticultural oils. Typically, these oils have a vegetable base that allows it to control whiteflies, without harming the plant. In fact, horticultural oils are non-toxic and are safe to use around people and even pets.
There are plenty of benefits of getting a reliable pest control including, but not limited to:
