Ant Pest Control
Here at Florida Pest Services, we perfect our practices to ensure that we have the lowest negative impact on the environment. We’ve even developed services that use what we refer to as “sweat equity and common sense” to solve many pest control, rodent control, and ant/termite control problems.
By doing this, we reduce the amount of pesticides used in ant removal and in most cases we can even eliminate pesticides altogether. It is not just the smart way, it is the Florida Pest Services way.
Ghost or Sugar ants are typical household pests found throughout south and central Florida. This type of ant loves sugar and water, so they are typically found in the kitchen and bathroom areas of your home. How to prevent them: Cleanliness and keeping all food items in air tight containers is an important step in managing these pests. How we treat them: Florida Pest Services in Boca Raton has a secret formula for the bait that will eliminate Sugar ants in no time.
Carpenter ants are commonly found throughout Florida and other surrounding states. They do not feed off of the wood, but they excavate it to make nests and tunnels for their young. This ant feeds off of sweets and proteins found both inside and outside of the home. How to prevent them: It is a good idea to remove any mulch that is touching the base of your home and to cut all foliage off of your home; this prevents another infestations. How we treat them: We are trained at finding Carpenter Ant colonies so that we can eliminate them at the source.
Big Headed Ants
Big Headed Ants are an invasive species to Florida and have been spreading throughout the south Florida region. These ants are going to displace many ants native to Florida. How to prevent them: commonly these ants leave mud tubes and dirt inside of homes. Restricting access is needed to solve this ant problem so keep all foliage off of the roof and house. How we treat them: This ant species is very difficult to get rid of because there are usually multiple colonies across multiple property lines.
Fire ants are found all over the southern United States, but they are very common in Florida. They get their name by their red coloring and their burning sting. How to prevent them: Keeping a close eye on your yard, trash piles, dead leaves and trash cans. How we treat them: It is important to get a fire ant problem treated especially because they leave welts on the body and a lot of people have an allergic reaction to their sting.
