Ant Control - Port st. lucie
Situated on the eastern shoreline of Florida, aka the Treasure Coast, Port St. Lucie boasts more than 20 miles of sandy beaches. The city offers a variety of activities such as fishing, golfing, and exploring the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens. With its close proximity to the St. Lucie River, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Savannas Preserve State Park, Port St. Lucie not only offers stunning landscapes for locals and tourists but also presents opportunities for pest invasions!
Ants, especially Carpenter ants and Fire ants, are a concern in many parts of South Florida, including Port St. Lucie. The warm and humid climate provides a suitable habitat for various ant species. Many at-home pest control options are not effective because they only target workers rather than eliminating the colony at the source.
At Nozzle Nolen, our team of pest control experts knows how to get rid of these pests or stop them from entering in the first place. As one of the top-rated pest control companies in South Florida, we understand the need to act swiftly and smartly to provide effective and long-lasting pest control treatments.
Our port st. lucie 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.
