Though it has beautiful weather, Brevard County is plagued by rodents, ticks, and other unwanted pests that can invade your home at any time:
- Ants: A major pest problem faced in this area are ants. Ghost ants, white-footed ants, and big-headed ants are all prevalent and require careful treatments.
- Roaches: German cockroaches love to call your home their own. They tend to stay in areas that remain warm, moist, and humid, like kitchen sinks and bathrooms. For American cockroaches, they are large in size and love the kitchen for its food and water supply. Proper identification is key, as different species require different treatments.
- Mosquitoes: Abundant water sources might be pleasant to look at and refreshing to the touch, but they’re also magnets for mosquito activity. You should deal with nearby populations carefully but swiftly, as mosquitoes carry an annoying bite and potentially severe diseases. Apex Pest Control utilizes cutting-edge traps that offer more effective results at a reduced risk to you and the environment, as they subtly eliminate mother mosquitoes and their offspring while spreading powerful chemicals from breeding ground to breeding ground.
- Rodents: Once a mouse or rat sets up a nest in your house, they can reproduce quickly and cause all kinds of headaches. They will tear into your pantry and leave waste that puts your family at risk of disease. Different species might look similar, but their behaviors can vary. Apex Pest Control offers rodent removal services in Brevard County utilizing a versatile approach that can change depending on the type and severity
- Ticks: Moist environments invite ticks, which can quickly invade your yard and latch onto you or your pets for a hearty meal. These bloodsuckers can leave behind terrible illnesses like Lyme Disease, so it’s better to be safe than sorry if you see a few of these mites lurking in your grass. We’ll offer you tips on how to manage your property’s vegetation, and we can also apply eco-friendly treatments to form repelling barriers.
- Other Invaders: Due to the high humidity in Brevard County, you will find insects invading your home time to time. Pantry pests are drawn to grain products in your kitchen. Some examples are meal moths, weevils, and various types of grain beetles.
New homes have the added advantage of installing a Pipeline™ in-home pesticide distribution system within the walls of their homes. Pipeline™ delivers pesticides throughout your home via an access port located on your home’s exterior.

Brevard County Termite Control
A termite infestation in your home is serious. Before you even know they are there, termites can eat away at your home and cause thousands of dollars worth of damage. While you may not be able to see entire colonies, there are some signs that termites might have taken up residence in your home:
- Seeing discarded wings
- Discovering groups of winged insects
- Tapping on wood and hearing a hollow sound
- Finding cracked paint on wood surfaces
- Seeing mud tubes on your home
A home riddled with termite damage is more than unsightly; it can be structurally dangerous. Fortunately, the experts at Apex Pest Control are available to focus on your specific termite situation.
Determining the specific type of termite that has infested your home is key to coming up with a targeted and effective treatment plan. There are several varieties of termites, including:
- Drywood termites: Brevard and other nearby counties do not have many cases involving Formosan termites. They tend to build their colonies above ground level in dry wood. On the other hand, they can also be found along beaches and rivers, such as Cape Canaveral, Satellite Beach, Cocoa Beach, and Melbourne Beach. Near Old US1, the large amount of older homes present there tend to face drywood termite infestations due to their age and wood exposure. When they build their colonies, they tend to be very dispersed.
- Subterranean termites: Subterranean termites are the most problematic and destructive for the East Coast. The biggest misconception homeowners have about termites is that people with cinder block homes are not vulnerable to termite infestations. Unfortunately, termites can still eat baseboards, doorframes, and wall foundations. Termites are constantly looking for new food sources like brushes and dead trees on your property. When they discover a food source like the damp wood area of your home, they will soon start to consume the wood in your home.
- Formosan termites: Formosan termites are heavily concentrated in Florida. Just one colony can include millions of termites, making them a serious threat to your home.
Regardless of the type of termites you are dealing with, our team of technicians will work with you to come up with the best termite treatment solution.

Some pest control companies in Brevard County believe in a “one-size-fits-all” solution for roach control. However, the German cockroach and American cockroach favor different environments — at Apex, we use this information to customize our plan of attack.
Our Roach Control Process
Cockroaches are a danger to one’s health. It’s common for the pests to carry pathogens like salmonella and E. coli, so taking the incorrect approach to roach control could put you at risk of getting sick.
Apex Pest Control traps cockroaches to learn more about your infestation. Once we know the species in your household or business, we draw up a custom treatment plan that involves the use of pet-safe chemical mixtures. Some roach species (German cockroach) favor indoor environments while others (American cockroach) burrow in plants to migrate toward open trash cans. Our technicians apply liquid treatments based on the location of droppings, skin sheds, and tracks to manage nests accordingly.
We can visit monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly throughout the year to ensure roaches stay away from your loved ones and customers.
Brevard County Lawn Care
Maintaining your lawn is sometimes intimidating, especially if you experience unusual patches of yellow or brown grass. Knowing what causes these patches, whether it be insects, bacteria, or another culprit, is not easy to determine. Fortunately, the experts at Apex Pest Control can eliminate the worry in lawn care by treating existing problems and maintaining a green, healthy lawn for you all year long.
For lawn care, the most common misconception is that the fertilization should only occur during the summer months. However, living along the coast means fertilizing needs are different. The East Coast receives a substantial amount of rain in comparison to inland areas. Here are some of the things that plague the lawns of Brevard County.
- Sod Webworms: The problem sod webworms pose for lawns start during their caterpillar or larva stage. At night, sod webworm caterpillars emerge to chew blades of grass. Individual blades begin to take on a ragged appearance and are soon devoured completely, creating unsightly brown patches in the turf. These brown patches of damaged grass can become larger and larger as the caterpillars spread out, looking for more food.
- Chinch Bugs: This lawn killer loves to feed on the sap found in blades of grass. Signs of chinch bugs feasting on your lawn include small to large patches of brown and dying grass. As they are able to build resistance to pesticides, Apex is always creating new chinch bug eradicating strategies to help homeowners keep their lawns chinch-bug free.
- Fungus: Recently, Pythium fungus has been substantially growing in lawns in Florida. Dub weeds are also constantly coming up due to the extensive amount of rain the Sunshine State receives. Because fungus can easily increase if not properly treated, homeowners need to understand when the best watering times are, as well as when to seek professional help.
All of our technicians are prepared for any problem, and you will receive the same technician from the moment you schedule service until the job is done so you get a reliable technician that understands your lawn’s needs.
Your lawn changes with the seasons, with abundant growth in spring and summer and a resting stage beginning in fall and continuing through winter. Knowing the cycle of growth and rest is key to understanding when to fertilize and water. This is especially important when preparing for the winter months.
As the seasons change and the sun shines on different portions of your yard, insects and fungus may suddenly appear in patches that had not shown any signs of damage in weeks past. Being attuned to these changes is one of the many reasons Apex maintains its standard as the premier lawn care specialists. Apex provides more than just an emergency fix for your lawn, however. Their experts can treat your lawn monthly, quarterly, or yearly, depending on your needs. With preventive care, the patches of dead or dying grass appearing in your neighbor’s lawn will not migrate onto your property.
The insects and pests that live in your yard can move into your home. Apex Pest Control provides barrier protection for your yard as well as your home to prevent pests from making a home out of your residential space. Apex’s team of lawn care technicians can treat any type of grass or sod for specific diseases and pests to ensure your lawn looks its very best.
