Where Are Ants in My Home Coming From?

Ant Control in Fish Hawk

Are you seeing ants on the counter of your Fish Hawk home and are you wondering where they are coming from? We are here to help and walk you through some possibilities.

Ants are coming from the outside. So you need not worry about looking for a nest inside.

Ants can enter through the tiniest crack. Ants will enter through cracks in the wall or foundation of the home. They will enter through doors and windows too. Being so small, they can enter the smallest opening if there is food and water inside. Be sure to seal cracks and crevices, especially around doors and windows.

Are there trees touching your home? Ants love to use trees as bridges to your home. Make sure they are pruned away from your home.

Follow the trail. Sometimes, to see where the ants are coming from you can simply follow the trail. You don’t always have that luxury if you have walls or other things in the way.

Removal Doesn’t Work. Removing the ants will not work. You need to look for the source and apply a barrier of pesticide to stop the ant trail of pheromones.

A professional pest control company in Fish Hawk really is the best option for getting rid of ants in your home. Thankfully, we have the knowledge to identify the type of ant and the products and equipment to treat them. We hope to hear from you!

Dangerous Spiders

Spider Control in Fish Hawk

What are the most dangerous spiders in Fish Hawk? Well, we are glad you found us so we can fill you in on the dangerous spiders in Fish Hawk and what to look out for.

  • Widow Spiders. There are 3 types of venomous widow spiders in Florida – the Black Widow, the Red Widow and the Brown Widow. Thankfully Widow Spiders are generally timid and will only bite if they are threatened. For example, be careful about reaching into or under an object where a spider might be hiding. Think before you reach into an old shoe that are stored outside!
  • Brown Recluse. The Brown Recluse spider is brown with a violin shape on its back. There are not many Brown Recluse spiders in Florida and therefore, the chance of getting bitten is small.

Symptoms of a spider bite by a widow or a recluse include pain, swelling, nausea, sweating, and muscle cramps. Seek medical attention of you think you have been bitten by a widow or recluse spider

Dangerous spiders are uncommon but spider control is still important for your Fish Hawk home. If you have plenty of non venomous spiders at your home, chances are that conditions are condusive for veneous spiders too. Greenhouse can help with spider control in Fish Hawk and we offer free quotes.

What Kind of Roaches Are in My Home

Roach Control in Fish Hawk

Most likely, the kind of roach you saw scuttering past you on the floor is an American Roach, otherwise know as a Palmetto bug. However, there are other types of roaches that may be at your home, including:

  • American roach – as mentioned the American roach, otherwise known as the Palmetto bug, is the most common roach found in Fish Hawk homes. They are glossy brown and roughly 1.4-1.6 inches long. Luckily, they prefer to live outside in shrubs, bushes and mulch beds (they actually love palmetto shrubs), however they will enter a home in search of food and water.
  • German roach – the German Roach is the most unpopular roach there is. They only live inside and are brought into the home through boxes and bags. They multiply incredibly quickly and live in the bathroom or kitchen due to the access to water.
  • Other roaches common roaches in Fish Hawk are Brown Banded Roach, Smokey Brown roaches, Australian Cockroach, Florida Woods cockroach, Asian Cockroach and Oriental Cockroach. These roaches are less common than American Roaches and German Roaches in Fish Hawk.

The trick is to get a pest control provider that can identify the roach at your home, point out how they are getting in your home and treat accordingly. A good pest provider should eliminate roaches from your home in 1-2 visits. Call Greenhouse for your guaranteed roach service.

What Is a Fire Ant and How Do I Get Rid of Them?

Fire Ant Control in Fish Hawk

Fire ants are typically red in color. They get their name for the nasty sting that they can do to a human! They build nests in the yard that look sandy and are roughly 2 square feet wide. Nests should be avoided as they can quickly sting a person and often many ants will sting at once. It is important to stay away from fire ant mounds especially if you are allergic.

The best way to get rid of fire ants in Fish Hawk is with a Greenhouse Lawn Spray. And we aren’t just promoting our services. In fact, we have tried a few different methods and through trial and error we have developed a full yard treatment. The reason being, if you see a fire ant mound in your Fish Hawk yard, chances are there are thousands more ants living under the soil where you can’t see. Our lawn spray treats the entire yard and penetrates the soil throughout your entire yard.

How to Identify Subterranean Termites

Termite Control in Fish Hawk

Have you pulled back a log in your Fish Hawk yard to see hundreds of bugs and then become overwhelmed with the fear that it may be termites? Chances are you may be right, but you could also be mistaken with ants.

Here are some tips on what to look for to identify a subterranean termite in Fish Hawk.

  1. Mud tubes. Subterranean termites build very distinctive mud tubes on posts and pillars. They do this to reach more wood sources and to protect their colony while doing so.
  2. Subterranean termites are creamy white to dark brown/black in color. They have 6 legs and are roughly 1/8 inch long. They do have antennae and they tend to look narrow and oval in shape. There are different types of subterranean termites with different features and we can help identifying what you have. Just send us an email at letsgo@mygreenhousepro.com and we will have one of our Certified Operators review and identify the insect.
  3. Soft wood. Another sign you have a termite infestation is wood that is decayed and hollow (if you open it up, you can often see the termites).
  4. Termite droppings can also be seen near a nest. It looks like a small pile of sawdust.

Send us a picture and we will tell you if you have termites at your home in Fish Hawk. We offer a continuous baiting method that is safer on the environment. It is called Sentricon and it is backed by years of research. We are happy to partner with Sentricon to offer the best baiting system that only needs to checked once per year.
