Pest and Disease Control for Naples & Marco Island Florida

Given the enormous range of land over which Florida farms, forests, rangelands and agriculture related facilities are dispersed, it is critical that we (landscapers, growers & homeowners ) all have a similarly widespread capacity to detect, diagnose, and respond to intentional and accidental introductions of plant diseases, insects and other pests.

Below are some helpful resources available for those in need of agricultural pest/disease information. They can assist you in diagnosing your particular problem & suggesting the proper action or remedy.
