Our Services

We offer a variety of services for both residential and commercial properties throughout the Florida Panhandle
covering Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Washington, and Holmes County.

Pest Control

To provide the maximum protection for a home or office from a pest infestation inside, the place to start is outside.  Because most of the pests that invade our homes or come from outside, the first line of defense is around the exterior perimeter and immediate surrounding area. A perimeter treatment is performed using a combination of contact granules, granular insecticide baits, dusts and liquid residuals depending on a variety of factors.  Once the initial line of defense has been established, we turn our attention inside to determine, through an interview with the homeowner, what further measures will be required. At this time we will discuss our findings and our recommendations with the homeowner regarding structural maintenance that may be influencing pest pressure.  If further treatment is necessary inside, a wide selection of active ingredients, formulations and physical pest control methods are available to best suit any given situation. Cadenhead Services Pest Control offers a variety of different programs, each one tailored to fit your individual and specific needs.  For a maintenance program where pest pressure is low, a Quarterly service (every three months), is typically recommended. When pest pressure or probability is high, a Monthly program is typically recommended. Both programs require a one-year service agreement and include any additional treatment as needed between regular services at no additional charge. We also offer One-Time services which require no service agreement but provide no guarantee either.  This service is typically reserved for customers who have a specific issue that they need addressed but do not need a regular maintenance program. Cadenhead Services Pest Control is locally owned and operated, certified, licensed, bonded and insured.  By using our services the funds you spend stay in our area to recirculate into the local economy.

While most pest problems involve ants, roaches, spiders, crickets, rats, or mice, here in the Florida Panhandle, termites are extremely prevalent. And while you may not be able to see them, termites alone cause over 2 billion dollars worth of damage every year which is more than tornadoes and hurricanes combined.

Knowing this, we stay up-to-date on all the latest methods and chemicals available, so that you have several options to choose from when deciding which method of termite control is best for you. Structures are similar to finger prints, each one is different.

Keeping this in mind, we know that each house consists of subtle differences which require individualized attention. Based on these factors, here are some different options for termite control. Liquid-Based Treatments is a style of treatment that requires a liquid-based chemical application be made to the soil that is adjacent to the house.

Depending on each home’s layout, sometimes access to this soil may involve trenching, rodding, or even drilling. We currently are using Termidor, Premise, and Alterset which has proven to be the most effective products on the market for immediate and long-term termite control.

Lawn Care

Florida lawns are constantly under attack by extreme heat, extended periods of drought, turf damaging insects, disease, fungus and numerous varieties of weeds.

The first step in bringing your lawn back to health is to understand exactly what issues your lawn has. We will do a thorough inspection and a fully detailed graph of your property. Then we will put together a customized plan to get your lawn back on the right track.

Florida's climate causes bug season to persist for much of the year. It is important to only apply pesticide applications when insects are present in high numbers and to reduce use when they are not. Although preventive measures should be taken for some types of insects, broad application of pesticides when insects aren't present can also be damaging. Florida soils have unique nutritional requirements to their northern counterparts. Common store bought fertilizers deliver too much phosphorus, a material most Florida soils gets enough of.

With mosquitoes being such a prevalent issue around this area, we felt it was crucial to offer this service to our customers. Our Mosquito Reduction Service is a 7-8 month program that typically runs from April through October (can be extended from March through November depending on the weather).

Mosquitoes breed in standing or stagnant water and the adults “rest” on the underside of foliage, primarily in shaded areas, during the heat of the day. For this reason, they are most active during the early morning hours or closer to dusk when the temperatures are lower.

With this is mind, Cadenhead Services assesses each situation on an individual basis. With every home’s layout being different and the surrounding foliage also being different, a thorough evaluation of each customer’s property is necessary in order to develop the most effective plan for mosquito reduction.

We will assess each property and all its immediate surroundings to determine what course of action would best be suited for your individual needs. In some cases, a combination of larvacides in standing water along with an adulticide application to the foliage is the best plan of attack while in other cases simply treating the surrounding foliage is sufficient.

In either case, the results for this program have been overwhelmingly positive, and we are very eager to offer it to all our current and future customers.

Animal Control

We have the skills and experience necessary to safely and effectively remove AND exclude various types of wildlife from your home or office.

From raccoons, to possums, to snakes, to bats, to squirrels, and anything in between, we have the tools required to help rid you of these unwanted “guests.”

Because every wildlife issue is different, we begin the process with a free evaluation and inspection of each individual situation. Based on our findings, we then coordinate a plan with the home/business owner to remedy the problem.

In some cases this may involve trapping an animal while in others it may involve excluding an animal and preventing its return. We will not only offer solutions for you, but we will also offer suggestions or tips when applicable to help you prevent the problem from returning.

Thermal Inspections

Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections provides important information relating to otherwise inaccessible areas of a residential building. Infrared detects extremely small but crucial differences in temperature from one area of a house to another. These temperature variations show up on the camera’s view screen as “cold” or “hot” spots, which reveal hidden problems that often cannot be detected in the course of a traditional visual inspection.

Although pest control experts previously conducted inspections with a flashlight and a screwdriver, technological advances include the use of infrared cameras. These cameras detect high-risk, high-moisture areas as well as heat emitted by active termite colonies.

Infrared cameras allow termite inspectors to identify problem areas without invasive techniques. Some professionals use infrared in conjunction with more traditional inspection methods.

Termite colonies are difficult to detect before significant damage has been caused to infested structures. The presence of one winged termite often indicates a full-blown infestation. Other signs of termite presence, such as mud tunnels or piles of sawdust and feces, only become apparent after an infested area has been substantially hollowed. Severe infestations may lead to blistered, buckling wood. In order to address a suspected infestation before damage reaches this point, it is advised that homeowners employ the services of pest control professionals.

With the Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection Survey, we can quickly identify problem areas that can't be seen by the naked eye. Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection - eliminating destructive probing methods. Our infrared survey inspection will pinpoint not only hidden water leaks, current moisture damage but also energy leaks and electrical "hot spots".

Stinging Insects












What are ants?

Ants are the most common pest problem reported in Crestview, Baker, Holt, and other parts of Okaloosa County in the Florida Panhandle, and are often one of the most difficult to treat due to the size of their colonies. In a single colony there may be thousands of ants existing and a single property may contain multiple colonies. While there are thousands of species of ants, in Florida we frequently encounter four types of ants and they are:

Carpenter Ants - about 5/8" long, make burrows in damp wood, but can go from there to damage solid wood. They do not eat the wood, but simply remove it to make space for nests.
Red Imported Fire Ants - vary in size from 1/8" to 3/8", make large mounds for nests; give a painful sting. They will enter a building through cracks and holes.
Pavement Ants - about 1/8" long; make their nests in cracks in pavement; can infest a building.
Pharaoh Ants - about 1/16" long; are commonly found in hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants, apartment buildings, etc.; are capable of transmitting Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas infections in a hospital setting.

Why do I have ants?

These tiny scavengers will enter your home or business looking for moisture and an accessible food source. Sometimes even rotting or damp wood that has mold damage can attract ants. Most, but not all ants feed on most kinds of sweets. They also feed on cheese, meats, vegetables, grease, peanut butter and dead insects. Ants often enter a home through cracks around windows or doors, but may also be able to get in through holes for wires.

Are ants dangerous?

In Florida, most ant species we deal with are either considered a nuisance pest (such as pavement ants) or wood destroying insects (such as carpenter ants). Fire Ants, however, pose a serious health threat and are notorious for their painful, burning sting that results in a pustule and intense itching, which may persist for 10 days. Infections may occur if pustules are broken. Some people have allergic reactions to fire ant stings that range from rashes and swelling to paralysis, or anaphylactic shock. In rare instances, severe allergic reactions cause death.

How do I get rid of ants?

Ants can be an extremely difficult pest problem to solve due to their foraging nature and colony development. Only a small percentage of ants within a colony are actively foraging for food, it is essential to inspect and pinpoint where ants are coming from. Because colonies are often located far away from the infested structure and not even located on the property, it is important to seek help from a professional in order to successfully eradicate the ant population. Treatment is best when it is performed near the nest - instead of being widely applied. At Cadenhead Services we are ready to come and evaluate the extent of your ant problem and will provide you with a free estimate. We use a minimum amount of the correct treatment designed for a particular type of insect to give you the fastest and best results possible.

How soon can you get here?

At Cadenhead Services we take all pest problems seriously and are committed to helping you as soon as possible. In most cases we can respond the same or very next day.

How can I prevent this in the future?

Ant problems can be difficult to prevent and that is why many of our clients opt to receive regular pest control service to keep their homes or businesses free of ants and other pests.

Bed Bugs

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs have largely been thought of as being a problem of the past. The truth, however, is that there are bed bugs in Crestview, Baker, Holt, and throughout Okaloosa County and that these pests are making a strong comeback. One of the major reasons for such a strong reappearance is because of the increase in international travel and the prevalence of mass transit. Adult bed bugs are about 3/8" long with flat, oval-shaped bodies and are visible to the naked eye. They mainly feed on human blood but may also feed on the blood of pets or other warm-blooded animals. Amazingly, though, they are able to go a long time without any food if necessary; sometimes, as long as a year. When they are engorged with blood, the females will lay eggs- two hundred at a time.

Why do I have them?

Because bed bugs are superior hitchhikers you may have picked them up from your hotel room, or even from your suitcase on the plane! They are also introduced into a home or business on luggage, clothing or furniture or even on a person who was recently exposed to an infestation.

Are bed bugs dangerous?

Bed bugs are not known to carry or transmit diseases to humans, but bed bug bites often cause redness and some swelling. Antihistamines and corticosteroids may be given to help relieve the itching. It is important to note that approximately 50% of bed bug victims do not show any evidence of bites, so you may not be aware a problem exists.

How do I get rid of bed bugs?

While many bed bugs hide in mattresses, some may also hide in a sofa or chair, or behind wall paper or pictures. They are also known to congregate beneath flooring and inside electrical outlets and on personal items including electronic devices. Thoroughness is the only real way to kill bed bugs. Every corner and crevice needs to be searched. As you might guess, this means that simply getting rid of an infected mattress will not totally solve the problem. Since their reappearance, researchers have found that the new bed bugs are much more resistant to chemicals that have previously been in use. Insecticides that are often used for roaches and similar insects do not work on bed bugs. To ensure complete eradication of your bed bug problem, contacting Cadenhead Services is the ideal solution. Our trained pest professionals know how to identify, reduce and eliminate your bed bug infestation using the latest bed bug fighting technology.

How soon can you get here?

At Cadenhead Services we take all pest problems seriously and are committed to helping you as soon as possible. In most cases we can respond the same or very next day.

How can I prevent this in the future?

Because of their high level of mobility, bed bugs are a difficult pest problem to prevent and that is why you should contact Cadenhead Services at the first sign of a bed bug infestation.


What are flies?

True flies have only one set of wings and have a rapid rate of growth, going from egg to adult in about seven days. There are more than 240,000 different species of flies in the world. Approximately one third of them, including mosquitoes and gnats can be found in the US. Here in the Florida Panhandle we frequently encounter several species of flies, including:

Fruit fly, Horse fly, House fly, Cluster fly, Garbage fly, Stable fly, and White fly

Why do I have flies?

Flies infest homes and businesses because they are looking for a safe breeding site. They are also attracted to areas where a food source is present and while the type of food preferred varies by fly, they will often feed on:

Decaying vegetation
Fresh fruits and vegetables
Fermenting liquids

Are they dangerous?

All flies are known disease carriers, many of which can be transmitted to humans. Flies typically breed in garbage, decaying flesh, excrement of animals and humans, sewers, compost piles and any other place where matter is decaying. This enables them to pick up various kinds of diseases which can be transmitted to people by biting or by landing on food, where they can add bacteria and viruses to the food. Since flies are able to transmit disease so easily, it is necessary to seek insect control quickly. The diseases that they can carry include malaria, yellow fever, encephalitis, dengue fever and more.

How do I get rid of flies?

Flies are a very difficult pest problem to resolve as there are many conditions that attract them to your property. Contacting Cadenhead Services is the ideal solution to controlling fly activity in and around your home or office. We’ll evaluate the extent of your fly problem and provide you with a free estimate.

How soon can you get here?

At Cadenhead Services we take all pest problems seriously and are committed to helping you as soon as possible. In most cases we can respond the same or very next day.

How do I prevent this in the future?

Preventing fly problems can be difficult for businesses in Crestview, Baker, Holt, and throughout Okaloosa County, and that is why many of our customers opt to receive regular pest control services to keep their home or business free of flies and other pests.


What are fleas?

The most common type of flea found in Okaloosa County is the Cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis). The flea is an external parasite that has specially developed mouthparts that allow them to suck blood from their victims. The domesticated cat is the fleas’ favorite host, but they will feed on and infest most mammals including dogs, rodents, raccoons, squirrels and skunks. Fleas are very small with adults only being 1/8 of an inch in length. They are wingless (meaning they cannot fly) but have long legs which allow them to jump up to 7 inches vertically and 13 inches horizontally. Their body is flat and hard which lets it withstand a great deal of pressure. They do not need a constant food source and can live 2 -3 years between meals; they do however need a blood meal before they are capable of reproducing.

Why do I have fleas?

Fleas are often brought onto properties by wild animals that are infested. They are then brought inside on pets and even on people (which means even if you are not a pet owner you could develop a flea problem). Because of their small size they can easily enter your home and be present for some time without you knowing leading to a large infestation within your home.

Are fleas dangerous?

Flea bites are often very itchy and can develop into red welts. Scratching at the bites can lead to infection. Fleas are known to carry a variety of diseases including plague and murine typhus; they are also an intermediate hosts of dog tapeworm, which if ingested can infect indoor cats, and rodent tapeworm, which can sometimes infest humans.

How do I get rid of fleas?

Since fleas are generally introduced onto properties by wild animals they can be very difficult to prevent. Once inside your home they can be challenging to control and eliminate. At Cadenhead Services we can inspect your home and determine the extent of your flea problem and then provide a free estimate for our flea control services.

How soon can you get here to treat for fleas?

At Cadenhead Services we take all pest problems seriously and are committed to helping you as soon as possible. In most cases we can respond the same or very next day.

How can I prevent a flea problem in the future?

Preventing fleas can be very difficult; you can start by treating your pets with a flea preventative under the guidance of your veterinarian. You should also check your shoes and clothing for fleas after spending time outdoors. If you notice signs of fleas in your home contact Cadenhead Services to ensure that your home and family are protected.

Stinging Insects

What are stinging insects?

Depending on where you live, you probably have come into contact with insects that can sting. The further south you go, of course, the more varieties there are of stinging insects. Stinging insects that we frequently encounter in Crestview, Baker, Holt and throughout Okaloosa County are:

Bumble bees – Easily recognized, bumble bees are large with black and yellow or orange-like hair patterns on their abdomens. Nesting sites include holes in the ground, abandoned rodent burrows and hollows of trees, buildings and walls as well as other areas that offer shelter from the weather.
Hornets – The baldfaced hornet is black and white and about 3/4” long. They build their nests, which are made of paper-like material formed from chewed wood, in trees or shrubs but will also develop nests in or around a structure, including under roof overhangs, in attics and inside walls.
Yellow jackets – Thin with black and yellow markings, yellow jackets tend to make their nests in the ground or inside logs that are near to the ground but will construct nests inside walls of houses too. Yellow jacket nests are made of a paper maché-like material and because they are often at ground level, it is rather easy to disturb their nest, even accidentally.
Wasps – Resembling yellow jackets, wasps have slender bodies that can be black, brown or red with yellow markings. Their nests are also paper maché-like, circular and usually hang down from eaves, or piles of wood.

Why do I have stinging insects?

There are many reasons for having stinging insects in or around your home. Stinging insects are attracted to areas that provide an adequate food source. Feeding varies from species to species but may include other insects, nectar and pollen. Many stinging insects are also attracted to water sources such as pools and ornamental ponds.

Are stinging insects dangerous?

While the sting itself from these insects is not usually terribly painful, a serious problem can arise if you have an allergic reaction to the sting. For that reason, stinging insects can prove to be a dangerous pest.

Many stinging insects will rarely bother people, unless you bother them or their nest first. Other species, it seems, love to bother people without being provoked. Hornets and sometimes wasps, are actually known to have a temper. This particular class of insects, called Hymenoptera, has venom in their sting which, unless treated very quickly, can result in death in some people, in less than an hour. Also, some stinging insects can sting multiple times, making their sting much more dangerous. Wasps, hornets and yellow jackets do not leave their stinger behind in your skin, but the bumble bee does.

How do I get rid of stinging insects?

Getting rid of stinging insects is a difficult and potentially dangerous job, one best left to a professional. At Cadenhead Services, we’ll evaluate your stinging insect problem, including identifying what type of stinging insect you are dealing with, and provide you with a free estimate for stinging insect control. We use a minimum amount of the correct treatment designed for a particular type of insect to give you the fastest and best results possible.

How soon can you get here?

What are mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes (from the Portuguese meaning "small fly") are a common flying insect in the family Culicid that is found in Crestview, Baker, Holt, and throughout Okaloosa County, as well as around the world. There are about 3,500 species of mosquitoes. They have a pair of scaled wings, a pair of halteres, a slender body and six long legs. Mosquitoes go through four stages in their life cycle: egg, larva, pupa and adult. The first three stages are aquatic and last 5–14 days, depending on the species and the ambient temperature. The adult females can live up to a month (or more in captivity) but most probably do not live more than 1–2 weeks in nature.

Why do I have mosquitoes?

Any source of standing water on your property will attract mosquitoes as they require this element to breed. They also prefer dark places like trees, grass and shrubs.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

While male mosquitoes survive by sucking on nectar and other plant juices, female mosquitoes bite humans and animals in order to gain the protein necessary for her eggs. This has made them the deadliest disease vector known, killing millions of people over thousands of years and continuing to kill millions per year by the spread of infectious diseases. They are the most common carriers of malaria and West Nile Virus. In fact, they are responsible for more human deaths than any other living creature. The welt that appears after a mosquito bite is an allergic reaction to the saliva that is injected into your skin to prevent your blood from clotting.

How do I get rid of mosquitoes?

Hundreds of thousands of mosquitoes are born every day making it impossible to completely get rid of these insects. You can reduce the instances of mosquito bites and breeding areas by contacting Cadenhead Services. Our Mosquito Remediation services are designed to decrease and prevent mosquito activity around your property.

How soon can you get here?

At Cadenhead Services we take all pest problems seriously and are committed to helping you as soon as possible. In most cases we can respond the same or very next day.

How can I prevent this in the future?

Preventing mosquito problems can be a tricky task and is one best left to the professionals at Cadenhead Services. If your home or property has been taken over by these biting insects, please contact us today.


What are rodents?

The class of creatures called "rodents" actually encompasses a whole lot more than just mice and rats. It refers to any animal whose incisor teeth continue to grow, and so they must continue to gnaw in order to keep them under control. In this group you’ll find mice, rats, squirrels, capybaras, nutria, chipmunks, prairie dogs and many more. Mice and rats can become a genuine problem when they are in your home.

Why do I have rodents?

Mice and rats like to be near humans so that they have a ready supply of food. This has earned them the term "commensal," which means 'to share one's table'.

Are they dangerous?

Rodents can carry up to thirty-five diseases that humans are susceptible to, which is another reason to get rid of them as soon as possible. Cleaning up after a rodent infestation also requires a great deal of caution. This is necessary because of the possibility of fleas or mosquitoes, which can also bring those diseases indirectly to you, your children, or your pets. There is also a danger involved if you stir up the dust of their nest and breathe in bacteria.

Rodents can also damage your home or business. They can chew through some types of siding and other building materials and are well known to chew on electrical lines; thus, increasing the possibility of a fire. They damage other places as well and create holes and gnaw on numerous objects - especially on food or food containers.

How do I get rid of rodents?

Removing rodents can be difficult, but we are experts that can do all the work for you. This includes identifying their nesting areas, their feeding places and knowing how to eliminate them from your property. Proper cleanup is also performed, too, ensuring that you and your family are safe from possible future problems.

How soon can you get here?

At Cadenhead Services we take all pest problems seriously and are committed to helping you as soon as possible. In most cases we can respond the same or very next day.

How can I prevent this in the future?

Rodent problems can be difficult to prevent. Contacting Cadenhead Services, at the first sign of a problem is the best way to keep mice, rats and other rodents out of your home. If you have rodents in your home or on your property, why not call us now and get a free estimate. Let us eliminate the guesswork, and bring our knowledge to quickly bring your pest problem under control.


What are cockroaches?

There are over 4,000 different varieties of cockroaches, but only about thirty of them can comfortably live with humans. This number can be further reduced to include only four varieties that cause problems in homes and businesses in the US and they are the American, German, Asian and Oriental cockroach. In Crestview, Okaloosa County and elsewhere in the Florida Panhandle, we frequently encounter the Asian and German cockroach.

Why do I have cockroaches?

Food, water and warm shelter will attract cockroaches. Areas that are high in humidity such as basements and boiler rooms and even sewers are especially attractive to cockroaches. The presence of cockroaches can lead to a definite impression of uncleanness, especially if your guests see them. The truth is that it is not necessarily uncleanliness that will produce a cockroach manifestation. However, uncleanliness will cause it to be much more difficult to get rid of them.

Are they dangerous?

The presence of cockroaches can lead to health problems, including asthma in children.

How do I get rid of cockroaches?

Once there is a cockroach infestation, it can be very hard to get rid of them. Cockroaches multiply very quickly and they also adapt quickly, too. At Cadenhead Services, we are ready to evaluate your cockroach problem and provide you with a free estimate for cockroach control services.

What are spiders?

There are several thousands of spider species throughout the world; some dangerous and others more of a nuisance. The Florida Panhandle is home to several spiders, including:

Funnel Web Spiders
Cellar Spiders
Jumping Spiders
Cobweb Spiders
Orb Weavers
Crab Spiders
Sac Spiders
Fishing Spiders
Wolf Spiders

Why do I have them?

In many cases, spiders are accidental invaders who have entered around doors, windows and other holes or openings. Although it varies by species, spiders primarily live outside, but will move indoors to find secure areas to build their webs and trap prey.

Are spiders dangerous?

Most species are harmless and are merely considered a nuisance when they leave behind unsightly webs. However, there are species that may bite with a result that can be compared to a wasp or bee sting. In some people, an allergic reaction to the venom can occur, and/or medical attention may be required.

How do I get rid of spiders?

In many cases spiders will invade your home if it easy to do so. If you have openings around doors and windows or cracks in your foundation you can easily have a spider problem. Controlling spiders can be difficult without the help of a professional. For help getting rid of spiders, contact Cadenhead Services. We are ready to evaluate your spider problem and provide you with a free estimate.

What are subterranean termites?

Subterranean termites are social insects that live in colonies consisting of many individuals. The colonies are composed of workers, soldiers and reproductives. The workers, which are about 1/8" long, have no wings, are white to cream colored and very numerous. Soldiers defend the colony against insects like ants that can attack the colony. Soldiers are wingless and white in color with large brown heads and mandibles (jaws). King and queen termites perform the reproductive functions of the colony. They are dark brown to black in color and have two pairs of wings about twice the length of their body.

Signs of Subterranean termites include:
The presence of winged reproductives
Mud tubes
Wood damage

Why do I have termites?

Subterranean termites feed on wood or other items that contain cellulose, such as paper, fiberboard and some fabrics derived from cotton or plant fibers. Termites in the wood of homes or other buildings usually come from colonies already established in the soil. Peak swarming periods for subterranean termites are from January through May in Crestview, Baker, Holt, and throughout Okaloosa County. They may also swarm to a lesser extent during the other months.

Are they dangerous?

While they do not pose a health risk to humans, termites are capable of causing severe damage to your home's structure and any wood by-products within.

How do I get rid of them?

Getting rid of termites is a difficult task because colonies may be several feet from the structure and termites are masters at avoiding detection until they've caused extensive damage. If you have a termite problem or want to make sure your home is termite free, Cadenhead Services is ready to help. We'll evaluate your problem and provide a free estimate.

How soon can you get here?

At Cadenhead Services we take all pest problems seriously and are committed to helping you as soon as possible. In most cases we can respond the same or very next day.
