Vegetation management with Florida Pest Control in Florida

Unsightly weeds and other vegetation can ruin the appearance of your building’s exterior, causing it to look unkempt. This unprofessional look tarnishes the reputation of many businesses here in Florida. Fortunately, Florida Pest Control’s Vegetation Management Service (VMS) provides targeted control and removal of unwanted vegetation or “weeds” from your property. We address areas around your facility, highway, or railway where unwanted and unattractive weeds have taken over. Our highly trained technicians have decades of experience providing businesses with comprehensive vegetation management.

What Types of Weeds and Vegetation Can Florida Pest Control Remove?

Vegetation is usually classified as either:

  1. Desirable – turf, shrubs, and ornamental trees
  2. Undesirable – unwanted plant growth and weeds

Florida Pest Control VMS Specialists can control any type of undesirable vegetation, targeting the areas where growth is not desired. Specialists are also trained to handle sensitive areas, such as under trees or near water, by using specialized treatments that control weeds without causing harm to adjacent areas. With safety at the forefront, we make sure all the materials we use are non-flammable, non-corrosive, and low in toxicity.

Treatment areas include:

  • Building perimeters
  • Gravel parking lots and storage areas
  • Asphalt cracks and crevices
  • Fuel storage
  • Industrial park railroad spurs
  • Fence lines

Risks of Uncontrolled Vegetation

Unkempt vegetation near your building not only creates a visually unattractive environment that could potentially hamper brand reputation, but it also has many risk factors.

  1. Pest-friendly environments: Pests such as rodents, birds, and insects thrive in areas with weeds and uncontrolled vegetation. It creates the perfect breeding ground for a pest infestation — the last thing your business needs.
  2. Dangerous safety hazards: Overgrown and untamed vegetation increases the risk of fires and creates slip, trip, and fall hazards. Certain poisonous plants can also pose health risks when humans come in contact with them.
  3. Obstruction of security equipment: Overgrown vegetation can block or cover security fencing, cameras, and access points, jeopardizing the safety of your premises.
