Bees & Wasps
bed bugs


A rodent infestation can quickly wreak havoc on your home or business.They carry dangerous diseases, contaminate large amounts of food, and play host to fleas. At USA Pest Defense, we’re skilled in eliminating rat, mice, or squirrel infestations efficiently. DIY solutions are rarely able to address the issue permanently. It’s vital to get to the source of the problem, eliminating every nest and nesting site.  


Central Florida homes and businesses are prone to bed bugs thanks to our heat and humidity. Frequent travelers can be at an even greater risk. Though tiny in size, bed bugs are among the most intrusive and difficult to eradicate pests. Bed bugs feed on blood, almost always at night, and leave its human host with an itchy, red bite. However, they can go up to a year without a meal. They’re visible to the naked eye, but they’re excellent at hiding. Look for evidence in the seams of mattress, cracks in bed frame or headboard, or the mattress box spring.This resilient pest truly requires a specialist who can deploy a combination of methods in order to eradicate the entire population. If any eggs are left, the problem will return.


Causing an estimated $5 Billion in property damage every year, a termite problem can mean devastating consequences for your home or business. They can reduce your home value and cause major structural issues. Preventative treatment is key because they can go unnoticed for years before you see the evidence of their costly destruction. Laying up to 30,000 eggs per day, the infestation quickly gets out of control.

Cockroach CONTROL

If you’ve lived in Florida long enough, you’ve almost inevitably encountered a cockroach at some point. Common species include the German cockroach or the American cockraoch, which has the distinction of being Florida’s largest. These nocturnal creatures are more than a nuisance. Roaches carry diseases which can contaminate surfaces and food. Known for their resilience, they can even live for weeks with their head detached.


There are few pests that provoke more fear than spiders. And Central Florida’s climate provides the ideal habitat for many species. Although many are harmless, others can be dangerous and even lethal, such as the Black Widow or Brown Recluse. A spider control problem in your business, particularly if you work in food service or hospitality, can send the wrong signal to customers and quickly send them packing.

Bee, wasp & hornet CONTROL

Bees, wasps, and hornets require special care and equipment to eliminate safely, particularly if the nest is larger than a fist. Our trained bee control technicians have the training and tools to remove your problem with minimal environmental impacts.

Ant Control

Ants breed quickly and leave a chemical trail which attracts even more ants to their colony. Fire ants can be especially aggressive and leave pets, children, or other patrons of your business with painful stings. They can gain entry to buildings through the HVAC, and may even cause electrical malfunctions in air conditioners or other machinery. But whether you’re dealing with fire ants, carpenter ants, black house ants, or another variety, it’s a problem that you need eradicated quickly.

mosquito Control

It’s hard to enjoy your backyard if you’ve got a mosquito problem on your hands. But mosquitos aren’t just annoying, they can carry diseases like West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, or the Zika Virus.  Though most common in spring and summer, a mosquito infestation can strike at any time in Central Florida. Using safe and environmentally friendly solutions, we can restore the peace.

Snake control

Florida is home to many venomous snakes, including Cottonmouth, Pygmy Rattlesnake, Timber Rattlesnake, Coral Snake, and Cottonmouth. That’s why it’s vital to always consult a professional.If you spot a snake, give USA Pest Defense a call so we can safely determine the species and handle your issue humanely.

Bird control

Birds can create an unsightly mess, they’re capable of transmitting diseases on a large scale. The feathers and droppings of a single bird can carry more than 60 diseases. Management of nuisance birds requires humane solutions. USA Pest Defense applies their expertise with environmentally safe bird repellents, roosting and landing prevent techniques, and more.

Flea & Tick CONTROL

Unfortunately, pet owners are especially vulnerable to flea infestations. These wingless insects are agile jumpers, meaning they can jump from host to host and easily spread. USA Pest Defense deploys a multi-prong approach to eliminate the problem and prevent them from ever returning. Pet owners are also likely to notice more quickly if they have a tick problem on their hands. Florida ticks can carry Lyme disease and other harmful diseases. If you have a tick infestation on the grounds of your business, we can help stop the problem in its tracks.

I have known Mike Story for over 2 years now and have only ever been impressed with his professional demeanor and clear attention to detail as well as his upfront expectations and fairness. If he can't help you he will tell you so, instead of charging you for services that won't fix your problem.When he can't help you, he will point you to someone that is able to help whenever possible. Don't wait your time trying to weed out empty promises. Call Mike and get the to the truth whatever it happens to be.

We needed termite treatment at our courtyard villa in The Villages. Because our home had not been treated since it was built, this required a lot of drilling in our concrete patio in order to apply the treatment properly all around the perimeter. It also involved "trenching" around the foundation of the other 1/2 of our villa, which was completely covered with landscaping rock. Our service person was the consummate professional and an incredibly hard worker. The worked was performed in the middle of the summer in the Florida heat and humidity, but it didn't impede his performance whatsoever. When I was advised that the job was completed, all the holes in the concrete were properly patched and all the dirt, landscape fabric, and rock were right back where they were before the work was started. The pricing was also very fair and competitive. I'd highly recommend U.S. Pest Defense for anyone requiring these types of services. Thanks again Mike!

This is truly the best company around! Mike came out to do our pest control and he was so friendly. He made sure we understood everything and took his time. Just like talking to an old friend. Cant wait to see him every couple of months!Curtis came out after our inspection to make sure we were not having any problems and troubleshooted the hot water heater for us. Without him we would have been buying a new one we didn't need. BEST COMPANY AROUND! Very highly recommended!!!
