Florida is home to a number of different species of rodents that commonly find their way into home and other buildings. Some of the most common culprits include roof rats and mice. Not only do rodents cause damage when they chew through walls, insulation, electrical wires, and other things in your home, they also carry a host of diseases. To those who suffer from weak immune systems, they can be especially dangerous.
Slug-A-Bug professionals look for eleven things when performing a comprehensive rodent inspection:
The end goal with each inspection is to gather critical information to best understand the size of the populations and the routes that are being used by the rodents within the house.
Termites can cause a significant amount of damage to a home if not dealt with. Anything that touches the soil on the exterior of your home offers these pests a way in. This could include foundation cracks, plumbing/roofing leaks, faulty downspouts/gutters, rigid foam insulation, firewood, wooden steps, decks, and landscaping timbers.

Disappointed in viera
Dependable. No improvement in shrubs and bushes however.
Great company. Always come when you call. Service is non-intrusive and professional.
If you don't already have an exterminating company, I highly recommend Slug-A-bug. We just had a termite 10 year retreatment and the technician left small amounts of dust around the perimeter of the house. No problem really, but the termite Manager (David) was in our area today and said he wanted to check their work. He got a hose and removed all the dust and then brushed it also! That's what I call GREAT customer service!!!!!!!!
Great service! I always speak with Christine, for scheduling, or payments, and she's always very accommodating, and friendly!
Personnel were on time, courteous, professional knowledgeable and congenial
I have used Slug A Bug for 5+ Years. I would rate them a solid 3 1/2 last year. They made staff changes and now they are 5 star with 5 star service. Way to Go Skug A Bug!
Carlos came to my home today as I was having a problem with what I call Ghost ants. I want you to know that he was very kind and helpful he explained everything he was doing and how the ants get in. I would not hesitate to recommend Carlos to anyone this is the first time I have used your company and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone
The tech assigned to my property in Florida my tenants have just raved about how wonderful she is and quick she is to respond for any of their concerns about pests.
Serviceman is always friendly and courteous. Always asks if any problems before he starts.
Just wanted to share how impressed we were with the job done by our new Technician Chris T. Chris was very knowledgeable, informative, polite, considerate and thorough. We and other family members have been using Slug-A-Bug for 30+ years and this is the most thorough treatment I can recall for several years since Steve L was our technician.

We are so glad that you are happy with Keith. We appreciate your business and very much appreciate you taking the time to write such a nice compliment Keith. Thank you so much.
Timely response for potential yard damage. Excellent coordination by "Chicko" re. date and time he would show up. He called ahead night before and also on service date to confirm arrival time and showed up at time promised. Listened attentively to my explanation of problem and then inspected the yard. Treated yard based on observations and took soil samples for analysis . Chicko is very knowledgeable, customer oriented and personable. He treated my yard as i it was his own, did not rush the job and made sure I was satisdied before he left. He is a credit to the Slug-a-Bug organization. Roger Vizioli Merritt Island,FL
