3 Things Palatka, FL Residents Can Do To Minimize Mosquito Exposure
Mosquitoes are a difficult pest to keep off your property since they live and breed outside and will travel from neighboring yards in search of food. However, the good news is that doing the following three proactive steps can help to minimize your family's exposure to mosquitoes significantly.
Mosquitoes breed in areas of standing water. Get rid of as much standing water from your property as possible. Make sure gutters are clear, store containers upside down when not in use, fill in low lying areas on your property, and do not overwater garden areas.
Mosquitoes rest during the heat of the day on overgrown vegetation, tall grasses, and mulch. Keep grass cut short, remove thick vegetation, and keep garden areas well-maintained.
Put into place a professional mosquito control program.
To help you minimize biting mosquito populations on your Florida property, our professionals will identify areas where mosquitoes may live and thrive. They will also recommend ways to discourage mosquito breeding areas and to get rid of standing water from your property. Finally, they will treat mosquito resting places.

What Does Termite Damage In Palatka, FL Look Like?
Termite damage can be challenging to spot. Termites invade pieces of structural wood where they can tunnel through and feed on it for months or years, without (for the most part) changing its exterior. While the outside of the wood looks okay, the inside of it will be riddled with rough-edged tunnels and filled with debris.
Over time, and after enough damage has been done, the termite's presence will begin to be noticed by the homeowner. If termites are living in your home and feeding on its structural wood, you may find the following damage:
Paint or wallpaper that appears to be splintered or bubbling
Floors that feel “spongy” when you walk across them
Windows and doors that no longer open or close properly
