Creepy Spiders in Tampa, FL

Christmas and Halloween have to be the most fun and celebrated holidays for the McConnell family. At Halloween, we put up seasonal decorations and carve our jack-o-lantern, just like many of our neighbors and friends throughout the community.

As the president and owner of Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control, I always notice spider webs, and at Halloween, fake webs with the small plastic spiders strewn across tree branches, porch eaves, and inside homes, remind me of a true Halloween story about spiders in the Tampa Bay area, and one I won’t soon forget!

Web adornments were stretched far and wide throughout our home, complete with the tiny inanimate spiders. However, I happened to notice one wayward white strand that didn’t seem to belong with the decorations, and it was strung across practically every room. After closer inspection, my wife found one of the spiders was not like the others. It was bigger, rounder, and real! It was definitely responsible for the actual spider webbing spun around our home. My wife used a spray powder formula to follow the silky strand, and I’m proud to say, she eliminated the real spider.

Few things are considered creepier than spiders, and Florida is full of them. There are as many as 900 species in the Sunshine State, some that are scary-looking, but not dangerous to you or your family, and a few more even more frightening because they are venomous and can cause serious health emergencies should someone suffer a bite.

Dangerous spiders you don’t want to encounter are brown recluse and false wolf spiders. Their venom is nasty and has the potential to result in serious health issues. Common spiders in Pasco that do not pose health threat – only  scare tactics – include wolf, golden silk, spiny  & long-jawed orb weavers, black and yellow argiope, green lynx, crab, and daddy long-leg spiders.

Tentless Termite Treatments in Hillsborough

Our primary goal at Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control is to create a safe, pest-free environment, protecting your family, as well as your most important investment: your home. TENTLESS TERMITE treatments in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties in Florida is our specialty, and we have 30 years of experience in the industry to prove it!

Tenting a home for fumigation and/or applications of intense heat to eliminate termites is not cheap or convenient and it is only good for existing termites, not for future infestations. It requires the occupants leave the premises for a minimum of 72 hours, as well as remove all pets, plants, food, medicine, and cosmetics before treatment processes can even begin.

Furthermore, if you have a gas stove or fireplace, the natural gas must be shut-off for the duration of the tenting, and all pilot lights must be extinguished…just another inconvenience.

TENTLESS TERMITE treatments are preferred by homeowners in greater Tampa Bay, because they are much more cost-effective, less toxic to your home environment; and your family, pets and plants can safely remain in your residence while treatments are applied.

A special liquid insecticide is sprayed into walls, behind cabinets, and into cracks and crevices leading to dry wood surfaces throughout the interior and exterior of your home that smokey brown termites devour. The termites carry the insecticide back to their colonies where they all die. Moreover, the insecticide remains and soaks into the wood structures to inhibit the return of these destructive, wood-loving bugs for an extended period of time.

For subterranean (ground-dwelling) termites, an insecticide is sprayed along the ground surrounding your home, which the little critters will carry back to their colonies, rendering certain death to what can be hundreds of thousands of inhabitants.

If you’ve got a problem with termites, or any other pest…or you simply have a question…call Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control today at 727-498-1977, and ask for Coby. He’ll be happy to speak with you anytime!

Learn How Bait Stations Show Termite Infestation!

Subterranean termites live underground where there is moisture, and they like to nest in wood that comes in contact with the ground. That’s how termite infestations in Pasco County homes and structures begin.

Termite colonies are often populated by as many as 1,000,000 of these destructive pests, so it makes sense you do whatever you can to eliminate the threat of termite colonies before they destroy your most valuable investment: your home.

A unique method of determining if your home could become a delicious target for subterranean termites is by using termite bait. Our professionals at Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control, strategically place bait stations, or monitoring stations, in areas of your yard. Upon our return to check these stations, it is clearly visible when termites are present and thriving beneath the surface of your yard. This also demonstrates how quickly these termites spread, and could be indicative of future infestations of your home and wooden structures.

With an application of a special bait formulation, subterranean termites consume this lethal concoction and take it back to their colonies, where they die.

Our experts are skillfully trained to carefully examine your home and property to further determine what actions are necessary to prevent subterranean termite infestations in your Pasco County home.

If you’ve got a problem with termites, ants, or any other pest…or you simply have a question…call Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control today at 727.462.0400, and ask for Coby.  He’ll be happy to speak with you anytime!

Eliminate Standing Water in Tampa Bay Right Now!

Coby McConnell, owner and president of Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control, is concerned your child’s sand shovel and pail may have blown around your yard during the torrential wind, rain and storms that accompanied Hurricane Hermine recently, and copious amounts of standing water in Tampa Bay remain within. Even small amounts of standing water are breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

With the threat of the Zika virus already in Pinellas County, it is vital that you protect yourself, your family and your neighbors in the Tampa Bay area. Go in search of any and every area of standing water in your yard, and take appropriate measures to eliminate it. Pour it out, brush it away, or shake it off, no matter what you have to do, get rid of the standing water!

The type of mosquito that carries the Zika virus, Aedes aegypti, produces their larvae in containers that hold water. They reproduce quickly when wet, even in spaces as small as a bottle cap. That is why Coby knows how important it is to reduce and eliminate all areas of standing water in Tampa Bay promptly after showers and storms…and even after landscape irrigation systems complete watering cycles.

If you’ve got a problem with mosquitoes, or any other pest…or simply have a question…call Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control today at 727.462.0400 and ask for Coby.  He’ll be happy to speak with you anytime!
