Pest Prevention for St. Petersburg’s Historic Areas

St. Petersburg is known as a beach haven and a tourist must-see on any Florida vacation. The city of St. Pete has historic charm, with brick streets, old oak trees, and a diverse array of architectural styles among older single-family homes. Unfortunately, St. Pete’s vintage beauty can be a breeding ground for cockroaches, fleas, ticks, rats, mice, drywood termites, and carpenter ants. Fortunately, Tri-S Pest Control knows how to eliminate these unsightly nuisances.

Several of St. Petersburg’s older neighborhoods are particularly susceptible to pest infestation:

Old Northeast, one of the state’s most beautiful neighborhoods, was established in 1911. Bordering Coffee Pot Bayou and Tampa Bay, Old Northeast has a mix of mature Florida native vegetation including oaks, palms, mangroves, and pines that host an array of insects. It is a densely populated area, with back alleys that are home to rats, raccoons, possums, and mice.  

The mix of homes and businesses in north downtown creates an environment ideal for many rodents. Mirror Lake is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, and the older houses and structures attract termites to older and decaying wood.

The Old Southeast neighborhood, established in 1950 and bordered by Tampa Bay, has historic houses and a warm and wet environment many pests thrive in.

Historic Roser Park, home to winding brick roads, thick Florida vegetation, and a creek, is a hub for pests. Old buildings, a wet and shady environment along with a dense population mean residents of Roser Park must contend with unwanted guests year-round.  

Stagnant Water Concerns in the St. Pete Area

As a peninsula, St. Pete is surrounded by water on three sides. providing areas of stagnant water and a breeding haven for the common Florida salt marsh species of mosquitoes. These types of mosquitoes are known to be in areas all along the coast of Florida around wetlands and mangroves, or anywhere with shaded areas and standing water.

It is important for St. Petersburg residents to have adequate drainage systems in place to prevent standing water, but with heavy rains and the city’s antique beleaguered sewage drainage system, this is not always possible.

Tri-S Pest Control offers a mosquito reduction program that will provide an itch-free home or business.

St. Petersburg Weather and How it can Affect your Pests

St. Petersburg is known as the “Sunshine City,” due to the record-high number of days with sun. However, this brings with it hot and humid seasons from May through October which is the ideal breeding season for mosquitoes. From December to March the temperatures cool, much to the satisfaction of fire ants and drywood termites.

The soil never freezes in St. Petersburg. The city’s proximity to the water means even the coldest fronts are offset by the temperate bay breezes. This means fire ants, drywood termites and other critters making their home underground can be active all year long underneath, and in your St. Pete home.
