Lakewood Ranch: Your Best Day Today

In Lakewood Ranch, we live by the creed, ‘our best days are every day.’

Developed in the 1990’s on land that had once been a timber ranch, Lakewood Ranch is one of the fastest growing and most successful master planned communities in the United States.  With homes for all ages and incomes, the Lakewood Ranch community has seen an average of 25% growth every ten years.  Made up of 15 distinct villages, with homes for all ages and incomes, the award winning community nestled in Manatee County is now the model other developments are emulating.

Lakewood Ranch’s commitment to preserving our Florida environment means almost half of the more than 7000 acres is dedicated to parks, nature preserves and natural waterways. Since 2005, every village, home and business has used eco-friendly products and building techniques to ensure healthier, more efficient and environmentally responsible homes, making Lakewood Ranch the largest green master-planned community in the US as well.

Green is something we definitely understand at Good News Pest Solutions.

The Industry Leader in Green Pest Solutions

Good News leads the industry in providing 100% all natural, safer and more effective botanically-based  Eco Superior products for pest control. Products that are guaranteed safe for you, your children and your pets. That, coupled with other products that utilize naturally occurring elements found in nature, allows Good News to provide the same pest-free living guarantee, with no risk to your health.

A recent EPA study suggests that 80% of pesticide exposure occurs indoors and that measurable levels of up to a dozen pesticides have been found in the air inside homes!

GO GREEN plus 3 – All Natural Protection

Go Green Plus 3Our Go Green plus 3 pest control service is designed to eliminate and prevent most of the creepy-crawly insect varieties we see in Florida, including ants, roaches, silverfish and, of course, spiders. We schedule 3 visits per year to provide exterior service after the initial set-up.

Your Good News technician will inspect the entire exterior of your property while sweeping cobwebs from the eaves and windows. Once the source of insects is determined, a proper treatment of the perimeter foundation, entry points, eaves, plant beds and trees will be applied where needed using reduced–risk, green products.

If you are having any pest issues inside, your trained tech will also treat any entry points, kitchen, baths, laundry room, or problem areas using reduced–risk or even pesticide exempt products. We guarantee your satisfaction and will return (at no charge) in between scheduled visits if you encounter any pests. Please call as soon as you see a problem. The sooner we inspect and treat, the better.

T·A·P™: Thermal Acoustical Pest Control

With T·A·P™, you not only keep out the bugs, but you can save money on your cooling (and heating) bills! Like all our products, TAP is all natural and safe for your family and pets, but is 32% more energy efficient than fiberglass insulation, while adding a sound barrier and even reducing fire hazard.

Termites – the Dinner Guest You Don’t Want

Our tropical Florida environment means that the state also has the highest risk for termite problems. Termites do more damage than floods, fires and storms combined, and like those natural disasters, the more you prepare the less you feel the impact. Good News is the leader in using natural, organic, and essential oil alternatives to control both Drywood and Subterranean termite pests. We even offer a 1-Million Dollar Damage Repair Warranty for homes that qualify.

We also offer Bora-Care®, an organic pre-construction treatment and real estate WDO inspections prior to buying a home, to insure it is free of wood destroying organisms.

Don’t wait, schedule your termite inspection now.

Keeping the Rodents in the Fields

One issue we see with rapidly growing and developing areas, is that rats, mice and other rodents find themselves ‘homeless,’ and decide to move in to your home—even in the most exclusive homes and neighborhoods.

The Good News Premiere Rodent program is the most comprehensive service available. We start by excluding all known entry points and sealing roof vents with proprietary covers. Then, we set several traps in the attic(s) to kill any rodents sealed in. Next, we install 4-6 of the best bait stations available in hidden locations around the exterior perimeter. These help to keep the outside population of rodents to a minimum. We check the traps twice per week until we are sure there are no more live rodents inside.

Next, we vacuum droppings and apply a deodorizer, sanitizer, viruscide to the entire attic space. Many of our customers are finalizing the process by capping their insulation with T·A·P™. Once T·A·P™ is installed, the attic looks brand new and acts as a deterrent to re-infestation.
