How would you like to come home (or get to your home away from home) to this nasty looking site? We came across these alien-like fuzzy growths on the exterior of a client’s house and in their lanai. This is the cocoon stage of the polka-dot wasp moth, or oleander moth. They are actually not a wasp, but a moth and are harmless. A simple recommendation for over-the-counter bug spray followed by a quick sweep of a broom took care of it. This client went from fear and disgust to thankful appreciation that I was there to take care of it instead of these festering at his house. A home watch service while you are away can save you unnecessary expensive visits from exterminators with a little regular monitoring for these types of infestations before they get out of control. Contact Coast Home Watch of Saint Augustine to discuss how we can do the same for you, and help take care of your property while you’re away.
