Signs of Mold In Your Home

At B&B Exterminating Co., we know that pests aren't the only things that can infest a home or business. In a humid climate such as ours, mold can be a big problem.

Top 3 Things That Attract Ants to Your Home

Like most pests, ants invade Florida homes in an effort to find certain necessities. They want to meet various basic needs, such as nutrition, moisture, and shelter. If you learn about the specific things that they seek, you'll have a better ability to keep these insects at bay and prevent them from harming your belongings.

We'll explain just enough about each insect so that, if you choose to perform an inspection of your own, you can identify what's on your property. Honeybees and Bumblebees With their distinct stripes alternating black and yellow (or orange), honeybees and bumblebees are the most recognizable of stinging insects. They're also the most harmless, in that they'll only sting upon provocation. Being pollinators, they'll appear in your garden come spring.

Bumblebees are louder, fuzzier, and fatter than honeybees, and they don't have barbed stingers like honeybees; this means they can sting multiple times. Both bees like to nest in enclosed spaces like wall cavities and trees, but watch out because bumblebees nest underground as...
