West Palm Beach is a city in Florida that receives a lot of visitors, but it is not just a tourist town. It is a great place to live and work as well! West Palm Beach offers residents big city living with a smaller town feel along with great neighborhoods, excellent schools, diverse culture, plenty of outdoor activities, and awesome weather.
Speaking of the weather, the mild year-round weather of West Palm Beach makes it a great place for insects and other pests to call home as well. Nozzle Nolen has been providing quality pest control services to the residents and business owners of South Florida since 1951. Whatever pest is causing problems on your West Palm Beach property, you can be sure that our trained and experienced technicians are ready to step in quickly and successfully resolve the issue!

Mosquito control in West Palm Beach, Florida, is a top concern for all residents. Mosquitoes are responsible for carrying and transmitting a variety of diseases, but the disease that is garnering the most attention right now is the Zika virus. The Zika virus is a mosquito-born virus that has been positively identified as being spread locally throughout parts of South Florida. The virus, in general, is not particularly dangerous. In fact, 80% of people never exhibit any symptoms and those that do usually just have flu-like symptoms over a period of 2-7 days. The major concern with the Zika virus is that during pregnancy it can cause a birth defect known as microcephaly- this is where the fetus develops an undersized head and brain.
One of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites and the diseases that they spread is to reduce the amount of contact you have with them. This can be accomplished by implementing a mosquito abatement program on your West Palm Beach property. At Nozzle Nolen our mosquito control program includes:
Inspecting your property for probable mosquito breeding areas.
Fixing or removing sources that can cause water collection or that collect water from your property. Clogged gutters and empty plant pots are examples.
Treating daytime resting areas on your West Palm Beach property with a mosquito fogger.
Using a residual product on shrubs, bushes, overhangs, and other similar areas to get rid of adults and prevent problems with future mosquito populations.
Living in South Florida means that you are going to be exposed to a wide variety of insects. If the insects would just stay outside where they belong, there would be no issues; however, this isn’t the case. Insects and other pests often find their way into homes; and once inside, they can become very annoying, introduce bacteria and diseases, and cause damages to the structure of your home and your personal items.
Nozzle Nolen can help to eliminate and control insects and rodents in your home through our residential pest control services. We take pride in customizing our pest control services and using all-natural products to target pests where they are specifically living in your home, helping to ensure a safe environment for you, your family, and your pets. Our residential pest control programs include:
The trimming back of trees and shrubs away from the exterior of your home.
Sealing any access points found around your home.
Treating the full perimeter of your structure.
We offer three different pest control packages to make sure that the unique needs of your home are met. All of our home pest control packages focus on treating the outside of your home, while still providing inside services as needed. To see which of our packages is the best fit for your home- Platinum, Gold, or Silver - give us a call today!
Bed bugs are still a big problem all across the country, especially in tourist cities that have a large amount of people constantly coming and going. Both homes and businesses located in West Palm Beach can become accidentally infested with bed bugs. The best way to handle a bed bug infestation is to not panic, not be embarrassed, and reach out for immediate professional help!
At Nozzle Nolen we can help to eliminate and control bed bugs in homes and in businesses through our bed bug controls services. The type of treatment will depend on the individual home or business and the extent of the bed bug infestation. Bed bug treatment options include:
Heat Treatment- Using heat to eliminate a bed bug infestation is a great option for hotels, apartments, and single rooms. The structure is heated to about 114 degrees through the use of special heaters, killing any and all stages of bed bugs present. This method is 100% eco-friendly.
Structural Fumigation- Fumigation is our preferred way to eliminate bed bugs in a heavily infested home.
Conventional Treatment- Conventional treatment is the best way to treat an isolated infestation using an effective insecticide.
Termites are a very damaging pest that silently enters into homes where they can cause extensive and costly damages for property owners. Living in South Florida means that we not only have one species of termite to contend with but two- the subterranean termite and the drywood termite - each with different characteristics requiring different treatment methods.
Subterranean termites can be controlled and eliminated with the installation of The Advance Termite Baiting System. This system works by installing eco-friendly, pet safe bait stations around your property. Inside of the bait stations are inactive ingredient cartridges which monitor for termites. If, upon inspection, the bait stations have termites in them, the cartridges will be switched out for ones that contain an active ingredient. The termites will eat the bait and bring it back to the colony, killing all of its members over a period of 120 days or less. The bait stations will be continuously monitored to prevent re-infestation. We can also safely and successfully treat for subterranean termites using Termidor, a liquid treatment option.
When it comes to drywood termites, there are several treatment options. The first option is tent fumigation using a non-residual product. Non-residual means that once the tent is removed none of the items in your home will need to be washed or cleaned. Another treatment option includes vault fumigation which protects and treats any valuable, portable items located in your home. The final treatment option of tentless treatment is used when there is a small localized infestation.
