Ant Control in Pembroke Pines, FL
Pembroke Pines, FL ants are a problem. Sometimes a very tiny, hard to see problem, but still a problem! Located in the Bug Capital of the United States, our tropical environment is host to over 200 species of ants.
The most common ants in Pembroke Pines, FL are ghost ants and bigheaded ants. They are often referred to as sugar ants. While less common, we also get many calls for carpenter ants and fire ants in Pembroke Pines, FL.
Most people don't realize the true source of most sugar ants. Bugs including aphids, scale, mealybugs and whiteflies are likely on the shrubs and trees outside of your home. As these bugs feed on nutrients, they secrete a substance called honeydew, which sugar ants love to eat! Until their food source is cut off, sugar ants will continue to return to your home over and over again no matter how many times the interior is treated.
As you can see, ant control in Pembroke Pines, FL can often be a challenge, since ants have an exterior food source and are so sensitive to pheronomes. While these ant sprays are great at killing them immediately, it doesn’t do anything to eliminate the ant colonies that are usually in the walls or outside.
These ant sprays often even cause ants to spread into different rooms throughout your house in a process called budding during which they establish new colonies and new queen. When it comes to complex and ongoing ant infestations, it's time to use the professionals. Call us today for your free ant control quote!
Cockroach Control in Pembroke Pines, FL
There are two main types of cockroaches in Pembroke Pines, FL that commonly get into homes. The American cockroach, pictured above, and the German cockroach. American cockroaches are often referred to in the area as palmetto bugs - or giant roaches with wings! They are about two inches long and are classified as occasional invaders, since they mainly live outdoors.
American cockroaches can get inside your home from the exterior if a preventative pest control application is not applied on a regular basis. If you are seeing more than a couple American cockroaches a month, there may be an entry point in the plumbing on the interior that is allowing them to get in from the sewer system.
German cockroaches don’t live outside. If you are seeing them in your home, they either were physically brought inside on accident or if you are in a condo or townhome, they may have gotten inside from a neighbor with a shared wall.
German cockroaches are smaller than American cockroaches, and prefer to hide in cracks and crevices, usually starting in the kitchen and then the bathrooms. To properly control German cockroaches, we provide a two-part interior treatment to completely eliminate them from your home. Call us today for your free cockroach control quote!

Rodent Control in Pembroke Pines, FL
Roof rats in Pembroke Pines, FL are the most common rodent we see in the area. Usually the first sign of a rodent infestation are noises in the attic at night. Roof rats are extremely adept at getting into homes, because they provide a warm shelter, especially in the winter months.
The best method of removing rats permanently from your home is to set up a rodent control trapping program and also exclude them out of the home by sealing all potential exterior entry points that are 1/4 inch or larger.
If rats are not currently in your home, we recommend the installation and maintenance of tamper-proof rodent bait stations on the exterior of your home to reduce the exterior population. We never recommend the use of rodent bait indoors, since it can and will cause rats to die and decompose within the home.
Once rodents are eliminated from your home, we recommend removal and replacement of the insulation in your attic due to contamination from rodent urine and feces. We are fully prepared to safely remove insulation from your home or business and even include attic fogging with a sanitization product. Call us today for your free rodent control inspection!
Learn About Pembroke Pines, FL
Pembroke Pines, FL is our home! We love it and hope you do as well. With a population of approximately 175,000, Pembroke Pines, FL is growing rapidly. There is new construction throughout the area as the need for new development to accommodate our new residents and many tourists grows.
This new development, mainly in the western areas of Broward County, often results in pest issues in new construction homes and existing homes that are close to areas of major land development as habitats are disturbed.
Pests like mosquitoes and gnats that breed most often in undeveloped areas are attracted to lights emitted from the many new homes and buildings. These flying insects then provide a food source for spiders.
The spiders attract paper wasps and mud daubers. The new mulch brought in carries ants and millipedes and before you know it we have a whole new insect ecosystem that comes along with the newly constructed homes in the area.
