West Palm Beach Pest Control Services
Living in Florida means an abundance of visitors. While most tourists are greeted with welcoming smiles, some of Florida’s most notorious visitors may not make their presence known until you have an infestation. These visitors are the ants you find nibbling on sugar in your pantry, the roaches scuttling across the driveway when you turn on the floodlight, the virus-carrying mosquitoes looking for their next meal, and the wasps building intricate nests in your shed.
Apex Pest Control, the West Palm Beach pest control company of choice, can work with you to eliminate these unwanted guests and keep them from returning.

With a warm and humid climate, mosquitos thrive in Florida. While having swarming mosquitos around you can be irritating, they can also put you and your family at risk for disease.
Unfortunately, mosquitoes can wreak havoc throughout South Florida any time of the year. In fact, the Sunshine State has the unfortunate distinction of carrying the widest range of mosquito species in the United States, at more than 80! If citronella candles and torches aren’t keeping these bloodsuckers away from your home, Apex Pest Control Inc™ offers professional mosquito control services in West Palm Beach.
We use an effective method to eradicate them, which is eco-friendly and uses their own biology against them. Utilizing the In2Care trapping system, we target sexually mature mosquitoes that are searching for places to lay their eggs. While the traps do invite the insects in, it contaminates them with a deadly powder that acts in two ways: it slowly kills the mother mosquito through a safe fungus (you don’t need to worry about your family or your pets), and it also eliminates the larvae that she lays. This two-prong approach is environmentally friendly when compared to harsh pesticides, and it can achieve widespread results due to how easily the larvicide spreads from breeding site to breeding site.
An effective trap system will cover a space of about 4,300 square feet. We’ll conduct a thorough inspection to find the optimal locations for traps, which work indoors and outdoors on a six-week to eight-week basis.
Palm Beach County Termite Control
Termites are another common — and dangerous — pest found throughout Florida. Unfortunately, most homeowners aren’t even aware they have an infestation until the termites have already done thousands of dollars worth of damage. Some signs to look out for are cracked wood surfaces, mud tubes, discarded wings, and hollow-sounding wood.
To effectively eradicate these insects, you first need to know which type of termite has invaded your home. There are different types of termites in Florida, including:
Subterranean termites are pests that appear light brown to dark brown in color and require nearby soil to survive. Home and business owners in the West Palm Beach area may notice hundreds or thousands of these insects in a confined space, as the species is famous for reproducing rapidly.
Subterranean termites can be divided into three unique categories: reproductives, worker termites, and soldiers. A Subterranean termite colony is well-organized to grow in numbers as well as defend itself from an outside attack. Luckily, the professionals at Apex Pest Control rely on years of industry experience to wipe out all areas of the Subterranean caste system:
- Reproductives: Stay within the termite colony to grow population numbers.
- Worker termites: Insects that scavenge for food and repair the nest.
- Soldiers: Stand on the front lines to block smaller insects from entering the nest.
Drywood termites burrow deep within wooden structures and survive on little moisture. The termite species flocks to the state of Florida due to the warm climate that allows them to thrive even during winter months. Infestations usually occur near wooden window sills, attics, and structural beams due to the fact that drywood termites make their nests above ground. A Palm Beach pest control company like Apex is necessary to mitigate the infestation, as DIY methods are unable to reach nests that are located several feet within materials.
While not a termite by definition, the powderpost beetle is a year-round threat in Palm Beach County. This insect is less than 1 inch in size and turns wooden surfaces into a fine powder. Powderpost beetles lay their eggs inside the channels in which they chew, and the average life expectancy of the insect is 2-5 years.
Our Termite Control Process
Once we identify the type of insect, we’ll then tailor a termite control plan for your property in Palm Beach County. We use products such as Termidor® and Bora-Care® and usually start outside with liquid applications to protect your home and keep the termites from entering. We also offer termite tenting for serious infestations.
Homes and businesses under construction in West Palm Beach benefit from Apex’s termite control treatment. Apex offers a home termite guarantee and business guarantee against termite damage when construction sites and materials are pre-treated with Bora-Care® or Termidor®. Treating the grounds and lumber used in construction and scheduling regular pest control maintenance keeps termites away in the long term.
Also, to keep the termites from returning, your technician will come out to your home annually to ensure the products are still working effectively.
