This week, several Florida schools fell victim to pests, namely
termites, rats and bed bugs.

hundred thousand were exterminated at a local elementary school,

Bed bugs were also found in
dorms at the University of South Florida.

whether at home, in school, traveling, shopping or even taking
public transportation. If a pest infestation is suspected, contact
