Ant Control In Coral Gables
Sugar ants in Coral Gables, FL are the most common type of ant we see affecting local homes and businesses. Sugar ants, more specifically ghost ants, are very tiny and hard to see, so they are appropriately named! These ants come from outdoors but they can also nest within structures.
Bugs like aphids, scale, mealybugs and whiteflies in Coral Gables, FL consume nutrients from the shrubs and palm trees around your home. These bugs then secrete a substance called honeydew, which is a primary food source for ghost ants and other ants in Coral Gables, FL and surrounding towns.
Long term, we recommend having us treat your shrubs and palms, as this will eliminate the food source that is attracting ants to your home in the first place.
Indoors, ants are usually are first seen in the kitchen or bathrooms since they are attracted to water sources. They usually colonize wall voids, so most ant sprays are ineffective at killing the colonies.
Contact kill sprays do more harm than good, since they can cause ant colonies to split into multiple colonies as their pheromones trails are affected by certain pest control products called repellants.
Often, popular baits don’t work either since the active ingredient is so low that it is not able to completely kill the colonies that are present in and around homes and businesses. Big headed ants for instance have over a million ants in a single colony, so a small amount of bait will not even put a minor dent into their population.
At Native Pest Management, we specialize in ant control in Coral Gables, FL.
Cockroach Control In Coral Gables, FL
The second most common pests we see are American cockroaches, often called Palmetto bugs. American roaches in Coral Gables, FL are very common due to our tropical environment.
Usually they live outside or in sewers since they prefer humid environments. Often, they end up in homes due to the scent of food. Roach sprays and cockroach baits sold in local stores usually do not control American cockroaches because these treatments do nothing to target the source of how these roaches are getting inside your home.
They also are usually contact kill only sprays and the gel baits dry out quickly without providing long term roach prevention. By focusing on insect proofing homes and eliminating the exterior population of Palmetto Bugs, we are able to offer guaranteed pest control in Coral Gables, FL and other nearby towns and cities.
While American cockroaches often strike more fear in people, German cockroaches are harder to control. We most often see German roaches in restaurants, condos and apartments. They are very different than American cockroaches, in that they only live indoors.
If you think you may have these smaller cockroaches in your home, check the cracks and crevices in your kitchen and bathrooms with a flashlight, you'll likely see them hiding next to appliances or in-between cabinets.
In addition to sugar ants and American cockroaches, we commonly see spiders, silverfish, ticks, rats, mice, millipedes, fleas, and fire ants in Coral Gables, FL.

Rodent Control In Coral Gables, FL
Rodents are very common in the Coral Gables, FL area. The main rodents in the area that can get into homes and barns are roof rats and mice. While roof rats are extremely common throughout South Florida, mice are not.
The reason mice in Coral Gables, FL are so prevalent is mainly a result of hay that is imported in from out of state that can contain live mice. Roof rats have tails longer than their bodies and have a body that is about the same size as a squirrel. Juvenile roof rats are often mistaken for mice.
Roof rats climb extremely well and often nest above ground in trees and attics. They are nocturnal so they can often be heard in attics at night if they are present and can be seen outside as well.
Roof rats are by far the most common type of rodent in Coral Gables, FL that we see get into area homes.
Since mice are much smaller than rats, they can often get into very small holes to get into homes and barns that roof rats are unable to fit through. Mice droppings are visibly smaller than roof rat droppings.
For rodent control in Coral Gables, FL, we recommend a rat trapping program and rodent proofing be completed on your home if rodents are currently inside the home. Our rodent proofing program is guaranteed and includes securing roof vents and other areas that are used as rodent entry points.
If rodents are not yet inside your home, we recommend the installation and maintenance of tamper-proof bait stations on the exterior of your home in addition to rodent proofing of the home.
