Ant Control - jupiter/tequesta

On the southeastern coast of Florida, you’ll find Jupiter and Tequesta, two neighboring towns that mix suburban life with beachy vibes. Jupiter is popular for its gorgeous beaches and amazing ocean views, making it one of the top beach towns in the US. Tequesta is known for its laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere and Coral Cove Park. With the Loxahatchee River running along Tequesta’s eastern edge, there’s no shortage of year-round water activities like fishing, boating, and all kinds of watersports.


But unfortunately, Jupiter and Tequesta aren’t immune to the chaos that can be caused by pests like ants! Two of the biggest problems South Florida property owners face are dealing with Carpenter and Fire ants. Carpenter Ants are similar to termites in that they are both wood-destroying pests. Fire Ants are dangerous and should always be handled by a professional. 


Nozzle Nolen has been providing quality ant pest control treatments for residents and business owners in South Florida for decades. The best way to protect your home from damage and food contamination is through prevention, so don’t wait until an infestation gets out of hand! Be proactive by scheduling regular pest inspections with a professional like Nozzle Nolen. 

Our jupiter/tequesta ant control services

Depending on the ant species, extent of the infestation, and other factors, we’ll use a combination of methods to get rid of ants at the source and prevent them from coming back. Our ant control treatments include:



  • Today’s materials have the ability to be target-specific as they can be transferred from insect to insect when they return to the colony. When an ant trail is observed, the material can be applied to the trail for them to pick up or directly to the insects as they forage.


  • Long residual materials are placed around all doors, windows, vents, holes, cracks, and along the foundations of the structure, which isolates the home, creating a protective barrier, and preventing ants and other insects from entering the structure.


  • During our inspection we may observe ants entering through a crack or hole in the structure or around windows. We will use caulk to exclude them and keep future insects from using these points to enter. We will also make recommendations to the homeowner if many holes or cracks are found so they can make arrangements for all to be sealed, adding to that impenetrable control barrier. 


  • Among the many tools we use to control ants, baits are some of the most effective methods of control. While being highly effective, they are also the lowest-risk materials we use. Once the worker ants find the bait they diligently bring it back to the colony, sharing it with all nestmates, including the queens, to achieve the highest possible reduction of the colony population.
