They say that knowledge is power, and if you don’t know what is happening or what you are dealing with, chances are, you will be at the losing end. And since educating our clients and the general public is part of our company’s mission, Bug Maniacs, your trusted neighborhood bed bug exterminator, came up with a colorful and detailed infographic that shows important statistics and valuable facts related to bed bugs.
Created in a manner that is easy to read and understand, the infographic explains data gathered from various studies regarding bed bugs, as well as the pest control industry. Shown are the growth of the bed bug population over the past few years which ballooned to 500% along with the 95% increase of pest control companies from 2000 to 2010. Meanwhile, a more alarming statistic is that 26% of the total bed bug population all over the United States can be found in Jacksonville, Florida, which is probably why you are scratching your leg or arm as of the moment.
After showing how much they have grown in number, we also show the favorite places they like to hang out, which are mainly in your bedroom. These little creatures like to stay and hide in pillows, mattresses, and small cracks and crevices, among others. And if you have no idea how a bed bug bite looks like, we also posted pictures of bite samples, as well as the pest itself, just so you would know how these small pests look like.
We also listed down a few preventive tips to keep bed bugs off your bedroom and in other parts of the house. In addition to that, we put important reminders on how to choose the right Jacksonville, FL bedbug control company that will give you the best value for your money. We advise you to check their background, track record, and qualifications before hiring any of them.
And as far as Bug Maniacs is concerned, we continue to provide the best pest control in the area by combining some of the latest technologies and industry innovations with our safe and effective home-grown formula.

BugManiacs, your leading pest exterminator in Jacksonville, FL, will start using locally produced organic pesticide next month. Our new pesticide is made by a local chemical company, which is supported by an environmental group. By supporting local businesses, we can help create more jobs for your community. Using locally produced organic pesticide also means more savings for you since since we do not have to import it, so we don’t have to worry about shipping cost.
As part of our commitment to environmental protection, our organic pesticides are made from a mixture of natural ingredients that effectively gets rid pests in your property without harming your plants, loved ones, and pets. These natural substances include commercial bio pesticides, soaps, lime sulfur, hydrogen peroxide, and herbal extracts.
We also use specific chemicals for your various pest control needs. For termite infestation, we can use an organic termaticide that contains active ingredients such as oils of rosemary, wintergreen, or citrus extracts. For fleas, we may use boric acid or silica based dust, which dissolves the wax coating on the fleas’ body and dries them out.
Aside from using organic pesticides, we also employ other natural ways of extermination, which are all approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These include the use of repellants, baits, and traps. We combine pest control methods depending on the degree of infestation. For mosquito problems, for instance, we may apply screens on your windows and apply sealant on the holes in your home before spraying organic pesticides all over your mosquito-infested property.
As a team of homegrown exterminators in Jacksonville, FL, we at Bug Maniacs understand that maintaining a safe and pest-free environment is challenging. Our city is surrounded by different bodies of water that can easily become a breeding ground for insects. In as much as regular spraying of pesticide is important to keep our properties free from pest infestation, this activity could also leave toxic residue that are harmful to people, animals, and plants. That is why we go the extra mile by developing an intervention system that follows the use of Integrated Pest Management.
We also receive regular trainings to learn and apply new developments and methods in our pest control services. Most of us have taken further studies in Pest Management at the University of Florida. We also obtain materials from the Certified Pest Control Operators Association of Florida on a regular basis.
Our on-call personnel are always on standby. If you need an on-site evaluation or nonhazardous pest extermination service, do not hesitate to call us at (904) 425-7341 or visit our website at www.BugManiacs.com.

Because we want to continually deliver the best results to our clients, our BugManiacs team is incorporating hummingbird drones into our Jacksonville, FL ant control and pest extermination services. With these devices, homeowners will have a better and more effective tool for monitoring bugs and pests in their homes and backyards, as well as removing them.
Mini-drones, such as our intended hummingbird models, were primarily developed to aid law enforcement agencies in covert surveillance and search-and-rescue operations. However, over time, researchers have found ways to make these miniature robots just as useful to the general public.
For instance, the real estate industry uses them to take aerial photos and videos. Journalists and sports photographers also consider them as substitutes for helicopters. At Bug Maniacs, we hope to harness their potential to rid every house in Florida of unwanted tenants such as ants, bugs, termites, and mosquitoes.
Currently under development, our range of mini-drones will act as supplementary gadgets to a trusted system that we have been using for 10 years. They will be fitted with imaging sensors and navigation features, allowing them to track and record the breeding and nesting locations of household bugs and pests. Using the information these devices collect, our experienced team can then proceed to hunt down and root out these insects through our four-phase intervention process.
First, we carry out an on-site evaluation, during which our team examines and analyzes your home conditions to determine the cause of infestation. Next, we address the problem by using sealants and spackles, as well as by fixing up your garden, plumbing, and window screens, to keep out pests.
After controlling the infestation, BugManiacs’ technicians set about exterminating the insects from your house and yard. We do this using environment-friendly chemicals and methods for you and your family’s safety.
Lastly, we treat you to a full orientation on what you can do to maintain a pest-free situation. This way, you can take a more proactive role in protecting your house from the risks that insects pose. In addition, we provide free follow-up checks for the first two years after service.
Founded by people who have personally experienced the inconvenience that comes with pest infestations, BugManiacs hopes to save you and your family from the hassle of having these insects in your home.

In over 10 years of business, we at BugManiacs have learned that dealing with bugs requires developing advanced approaches to extermination. For this reason, we are looking to incorporate dragonfly drone technology into our comprehensive pest control service in Jacksonville, FL. By using drones, we can further intensify our efforts and improve our success rate in pest extermination.
By mimicking the shape, size, and movements of a real dragonfly, our planned drones can penetrate, survey, and monitor bug and pest activities in homes and backyards. Through them, you will be able to chart the location of the insects and easily identify the areas where they breed and multiply. These devices are patterned after the micro-drones that are primarily used by the military for 24/7 surveillance missions.
With the drones looking just like dragonflies, they can be easily maneuvered around the problem areas without easily rattling or alarming the real pests. Using a remote control system, you will be able to fly the drone in different places, including hard-to-reach ones, take photographs and images of the infestation, and plot further steps towards eradicating it.
We are deploying this new technology to further enhance our Jacksonville pest control service, which has benefited thousands of households in the area. Our extensive procedure for dealing with pests begins with a thorough on-site evaluation conducted by our expert technicians. We follow this up by controlling the source of the problem, applying solutions like sealants and spackle, among others, to contain infestation.
We then begin the extermination procedure using our eco-friendly chemicals and methods. Afterwards, as part of the BugManiacs mission to keep homes pest-free for life, we conduct maintenance services that include full orientations on how to keep pests from coming back to a house. We also schedule visits, free of charge for the first two years after initial service, to monitor any further occurrence of problems in our customers’ houses.
More than a decade ago, we started our business in a small neighborhood in Florida and have since grown to serve the entire area. Driven by our commitment to provide effective bug, ant, termite, and mosquito extermination services, we combine state-of-the-art technology with a homegrown, fail-safe formula to deliver quality results and service. We provide solutions that can be adapted to the specific needs of our clients and are in accordance with local regulations.

We at BugManiacs make an effort to reduce our carbon footprint even as we help customers rid their properties of pests. As a responsible and reliable Jacksonville, FL exterminator, we see to it that our services produce minimal impact on the environment. We use natural ingredients for our products and make sure that no artificial chemicals are released as byproducts of our treatment process.
All in all, we perform a four-phase intervention not only to eliminate pests from your home, but to keep them from coming back, as well. For the first phase, we inspect a site extensively to determine the cause of infestation. With our extensive experience in tracking down bugs, we can find their entry points and food sources, plus pinpoint other factors that draw them to your property.
Upon finding their reasons for setting up camp in your home, we begin making your house pest-free for the long run. Our team can seal cracks, fill holes with spackle paste, repair broken window screens, and do so much more to prevent pests from making their way into your house in the first place.
After setting up these preventive measures, we start applying the green methods and chemicals, courtesy of our own R&D department, that will benefit both you and the environment. The Earth-friendly mixture developed by our researchers repels mosquitoes, termites, ants, and other pests.
To eliminate mosquitoes, we use a water-based biodegradable formula that forces them away from your property and prevents them from returning. But we don’t just stop there—we also install simple mosquito-killing devices around your yard, practically turning your home into a mosquito exterminator.
When it comes to termites, we apply effective treatments to find termite queens and eliminate their entire colonies. For effective ant control, we locate and remove nests, then prevent the establishment of new ones. We also zero in on other kinds of creatures, including bedbugs, cockroaches, beetles, and wood borers that can make your house a far less comfortable place to live in.
To cap off all our services, our team gives a complete orientation on how to keep pests from a home once extermination is done. We’ll never stop being proactive in helping you deal with all sorts of nuisances. Because we value your comfort, we’ll also schedule complimentary follow-up visits within two years to check if any bugs or pests resurface.

Jacksonville, FL pest control company, BugManiacs, has added an additional service to their comprehensive list of eco-friendly bug control and extermination services. The company’s new service – On Site Pest Evaluation – seeks not only to find bugs, but also to see why the property became infested with unwanted pests in the first place.
The company’s expert pest control technicians perform a thorough inspection of a home using advanced methods and technology to find the hiding places of the pests, and the pathways to them. The vice president of BugManiacs, Tom Making says, “Just spraying chemicals around a home may temporarily get rid of the pests, but without finding the sources and causes of the infestation, they will just return to haunt you again and again.”
BugManiacs’ skilled technicians begin by locating the largest areas of infestation, and then tracing it back to the source using their own proprietary “bug tracking” technology. This special system tags the pests with a biodegradable chemical that reacts to the bug’s particular chemistry and emits a very specific radio frequency, which can be detected using an electronic device.
This way, the pest control team can trace the bug’s path and find every crack or void through which the pests enter the home and hide. These pathways can then be treated and blocked off to prevent re-entry. Their “maniac” bug technicians come armed with sealant, spackle, garden, and plumbing implements, window screen repair materials, and other tools to completely block the pest’s entry to a property.
Additionally, the professional exterminators at BugManiacs consult with the homeowners to discover what things might be making it easier for bugs to thrive in the home. They will help them to eliminate such things as food sources, moisture, and other factors that create a favorable environment for the offending creatures.
What sets BugManiacs apart from any other pest control service that Jacksonville has to offer is its holistic approach to pest management. By using a combination of cutting edge technologies, eco-friendly products, and effective preventive measures, they are able to rid a property of pests without creating a toxic environment for the inhabitants of a home.
