Tammi Waters

Tammi is the Co-founder and President of Bug PRO Florida. She is a seasoned finance professional with nearly 20 years of accounting experience in the Jacksonville area.

Frances “Bootsie” Hanson

Our leader for over eight years, Frances Hanson (“Bootsie”), passed away on November 26, of 2011 unexpectedly. Frances was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. She was a graduate of Terry Parker.

Frances had a true desire to learn and share her knowledge regarding the pest control industry. She was an Associate Certified Entomologist and was licensed in a total of five states during her career of twenty five years. You could always find her in the field educating our staff. She loved the hands on teaching approach!

Frances had a passion for Bug PRO Florida as a whole. We will cherish the memories of Frances and will miss her tremendously. Frances’ leadership and guidance will remain the foundation of the achievements Bug PRO can proudly stand behind. Her determination was the lifeblood of the company and although we will move forward, we will never forget the importance Frances placed in responsible service practices, the relationships built between the company and customers as well as our impact in the community.

Bed Bugs

Don’t let the bed bugs bite! Bed bugs feed only on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts. Although they have a cryptic behavior and can conceal themselves in tight cracks and crevices, bed bugs are often found in bed parts, such as mattresses and box springs, hence the common name.

Treatment for bed bugs can vary but it is essential that action is taken quickly to get the infestation under control.

  • Inspection and identification of infested areas
  • Vacuum infested harborage areas including mattresses, beds and other infested areas
  • Treat harborages with EPA labeled products
  • Treat voids and electrical outlets with an EPA insecticidal dust
  • Seal harborage areas where practical with a silicone or similar caulking or sealing material
  • Place sticky monitors where appropriate to monitor insect activities
  • Inspect upholstered furniture and treat as needed
  • Inspect window treatments, curtains and drapes


Bug PRO Florida treats wood-destroying termites through liquid applications or through monitoring and baiting systems.

Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year. They primarily feed on wood, but can also damage paper, books, and insulation in your home or business structure. Oftentimes there will be no visible indication that the structure is infested. Termites are cryptic creatures and infestations can go undetected for years, hidden behind walls, floor coverings, insulation, and other obstructions. Termite feeding and damage can even progress undetected in wood that is exposed because the outer surface is usually left intact.

Discovering winged termites indoors almost always indicates an infestation warranting treatment. If winged termites are seen emerging from the base of a foundation wall or adjoining porches and patios, there’s a good chance the structure is infested also and treatment may be warranted.

Other signs of infestation are earthen (mud) tubes extending over foundation walls, support piers, sill plates, floor joists, etc. The mud tubes are typically about the diameter of a pencil, but sometimes can be thicker.

We can treat wood-destroying termites through liquid applications such as Termidor or Premise, or through monitoring and baiting systems.

WDO (Wood Destroying Organisms)

Bug PRO Florida offers comprehensive Wood Destroying Organism Inspections, known in the Real Estate industry and commonly referred to as the “WDO Inspection.” Our WDO inspections are thorough so you know your property investment is safe from invasive pests that like to reside in the wood portion of homes. Wood Destroying Organisms can compromise the structure of your home and potentially cause thousands of dollars in damage. Let us help you protect your property investment right from the start. Call us today to set up your WDO Inspection.

Bug PRO Florida offers comprehensive WDO services for:

  • Residential and Commercial Multi Unit Structures
  • Slab Foundations
  • Crawl/Off-grade Foundations

Termites are of particular importance when buying or selling a home since a termite inspection/infestation report is normally a condition of sale. While termites are probably the best known, there are also other wood destroying organisms such as Powder Post Beetles, Old House Borers and wood decaying fungi that can infest a structure.

Here are some valuable tips if you are buying a new home or Property:

  • Don’t rely solely on the WDO report.
  • Be present and ask questions when the WDO inspection is performed.
  • Ask for any documentation on termite treatment history the seller may have.
  • Maintain a WDO Protection agreement on your home after purchase.
