Getting pest control in Tampa

Tampa Skyline

Several types of pests are well-known in Tampa. Termites are extremely common — and nearly impossible to eliminate without professional help. Unique to this area are drywood termites, which don't need to live in soil; they can survive in dry, rotting wood found in a home's foundation or even in old furniture. These pests are seldom seen, so you'll need a pest control expert who's experienced with this type of termite and equipped to eliminate their colonies.

Older neighborhoods are more susceptible to drywood termites. Row homes in Ybor, bungalows in Hyde Park and historic villas in Seminole Heights should be routinely checked for these insects, especially if you're planning to buy, sell or renovate a property.

Cockroaches are also common in Tampa. In fact, census data has shown that 38 percent of Tampa homes have cockroaches, the highest percentage in the U.S.

The cost of pest control in Tampa varies by company, property and the services needed. Generally, Tampa consumers can expect to receive a free quote or estimate before the pest control operator even visits the property. Once the technician arrives and completes an inspection, you'll have a more detailed estimate of the work and costs that will be involved.

For a one-time visit to eliminate pests such as ants, flies, mosquitoes or other nuisances, Tampa home and business owners can expect to pay several hundred dollars. Some companies will charge based on square footage, so if your property is 1,200 square feet, you'll pay less than a property that's 3,000 square feet.

When hiring pest control in Tampa, make sure the company is licensed and certified. The agricultural department requires the following:

  • Passing grade on the state's certification exam
  • Pest control business license
  • Minimum insurance coverage

A reputable business will be able to demonstrate it is licensed, insured and certified. You can ask about experience, success rates and warranties or guarantees.
