Pest Library

Common Pests In South Florida

This is the most robust pest library you will find of any South Florida pest control company and probably in the nation as well. The founder of GOTBUGSIKILL, Juan Cava, has many years of experience in the pest control industry. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and while in college he has taken many science courses including entomology, botany, plant pathology, weed management, crop and soil science, horticultural science, biology of insects, microbiology, organic/inorganic chemistry, and biochemistry. In addition to those courses, Juan also completed a “Foundations of General Household Pest Management” certificate from Pest Management University (PMU) at the University of Florida.

Juan is currently working towards earning his ACE certification, known as the Associate Certified Entomologist. Being ACE certified is the highest achievement in the pest management industry and is a benchmark of professionalism.

Juan Cava has dedicated countless hours writing this unique content. In his writings he combines his many years of pest management experience with literature from leading books in the pest control industry including the Truman’s Scientific Guide to Pest Management Operations, Mallis Handbook of Pest Control, and National Pest Management Association Field Guide. Unlike GOTBUGSIKILL, most other pest control companies outsource this task to content writers. These individuals are hired to write about pest control but have little or no field experience in the industry.

The first step in our South Florida pest control services is to correctly identify the pest(s) that is causing the problem. Failure to properly ID the bug(s) will lead to use of the wrong control measures and then customers are dissatisfied with the pest management professional. If you have pest questions, then this learning center is the resource for you! In this pest guide, we aim to provide helpful information on the most common pests found in South Florida including how to identify them and the problems they cause as well as some tips to help you prevent them from becoming a problem on your property.

I bought a 2nd home to rent as an income property. Once the deal was closed I started noticing dozens of cockroaches crawling inside the home & garage, some were dying but most were running around. I called Juan & 2 hours later he was at the home. It took him about an hour & half laying bait in the attic, crawl spaces and inside the nest he found in the garage. the following day, those live roaches were DEAD!. Juan returned 2 weeks later to treat the outside of the home a 2nd time. My renters are now moved in & they have not seen a single roach, dead or alive. I signed up for the quarterly service Got Bugs I Kill offers. The price is very reasonable, the treatment is very effective & I am extremely happy. Juan is very knowledgeable & super professional. I actually think I love him! Give him a call & he won't disappoint.
