Ant Control in Fort Lauderdale

Ants are one of the most challenging pests to eliminate in Fort Lauderdale and South Florida homes. With so many ants in each colony, and so many colonies typically found around each home, unless the entire ant presence is eliminated from the property at once, they will continue to come out. 

In Fort Lauderdale, there are several species of ants that often invade homes. The most common we find are sugar ants and bigheaded ants. Other ant species that frequent Fort Lauderdale homes include pharaoh ants, crazy ants, fire ants, carpenter ants, acrobat ants, and white-footed ants. 

All of these ants have to forage for food and water, which is why in homes, the kitchen is usually their favorite place to go. 

Ant Treatments

Many products, including over-the-counter sprays, are repellent insecticides. These contact insecticides only kill the ants that are actively foraging. However, the vast majority of the ants are healthy in the nest deep in the walls or outside your home. 

If an exterminator fails to eliminate ants from your Fort Lauderdale home, it is because they are using the wrong products. When ants are treated with repellent insecticides, some species split out to avoid the poison and start a new colony somewhere else. This process is known as budding. In a short time, the infestation will only get worse as multiple colonies are created each time the wrong products are used.

At GOTBUGSIKILL, we rely on a mix of liquid and spray treatments that are customized to fit the ant species you are up against and your home’s individual needs. 

Sugar Ants

Sugar ants are also known as ghost ants. They are very tiny and particularly attracted to sugary foods. Sometimes they are very hard to see, hence the nickname ghost ants. 

Sugar ants respond well to baits high in carbohydrate content. The right placement of the bait combined with a spot treatment of a nonrepellent insecticide is all we need to evict these ants from your Fort Lauderdale home. A liquid treatment around the foundation is also important to stop them before they get inside. Our KILL365 pest control program is designed to do just that.

Bigheaded Ants

Bigheaded ants are also a big problem in Fort Lauderdale. These ants have multiple queens and reproduce quickly. The easiest way to identify bigheaded ants is by the soldier or major workers. The soldiers are tasked to protect the nest and their head is much larger than the minor workers. Another sign that you may have bigheaded ants is if you notice piles of sand around your home. These ants excavate to make room for the ever-expanding colony. 

Eliminating bigheaded ants from your Fort Lauderdale home is not easy. Several exterminators struggle to control these ants because they use the wrong sprays and the wrong baits. GOTBUGSIKILL technicians have the best training in South Florida and will eliminate any ant infestation in a short time.

White-footed Ants

White-footed ants are medium-sized ants with a black coloration. They have yellowish-white feet, hence their common name with-footed ants. This is an invasive species introduced to South Florida in recent years. White-footed ants are attracted to sweet substances such as plant nectar and honeydew produced from aphids, mealybugs, and scales. Foragers find their way inside your home through small openings to the interior. Once inside, they move quickly to the kitchen and bathrooms looking for food. If you find heavy trails of black ants inside or outside your Fort Lauderdale home, you probably have a white-footed ant infestation.
