Common Types of Ants in Boca Raton
The good news is that not all ants bite or sting and not all are dangerous—but each variety comes with their own challenges. In South Florida, we have plenty of ant species to deal with, including the following.
We’ll start with this biting species because they’re among the biggest ants in Florida and one of the most commonly found in people’s homes and other structures. Focusing on two types of carpenter ants—Camponotus floridanus and Camponotus tortuganus—they’re easy to spot as they nest in wooden portions of a home and seek out moisture and sweets. To treat a carpenter ant infestation, we follow them to their nest and apply treatments there.
Fire ants are resilient and dangerous tiny creatures. At a minimum, their stings are painful and lead to intense itching and pustules. When they attack people or pets that are allergic to their stings, this can lead to life-threatening reactions that require immediate medical attention. Plus, even if you get rid of them once, and ant control measures aren’t continued, they can easily re-infest those same areas. If you’ve spotted a fire ant mound on your property, this isn’t a DIY fix. So, keep people and pets away and call us at (954) 326-8287 for fire ant control services.
You may have heard this species called the sugar ant because of how much they like sweet foods—and their love of sugar explains why they’re often found on kitchen counters. They can be pretty frustrating to have in your pantries, cupboards, counters and more. Fortunately, they seldom bite and, when they do, it usually provokes a minor response at best.
Black in body, these ants are named after the white tips on their legs, and they can be problematic during the summer. That’s because they don’t respond to ant bait the same way many other species do. To solve a white-footed infestation, you typically need regularly scheduled ant control services from professionals who know how to track down nesting spots and treat this problem.
Named after their erratic behavior, these ants will forage their food far from home, unlike many other species that carefully follow trails laid out by fellow ants. Crazy ants are willing to eat just about anything, too, from fruit to seeds to bugs and more. Not surprisingly, they aren’t picky about where they nest, either, settling in the soil, in tree cavities, in trash, and more—making themselves right at home in dry and damp environments alike.
This ant species is increasingly found in lawns, gardens, brick walkways, under slabs and more in South Florida as they dig their way underground in sandy soil. If they stuck to living underground, of course, they wouldn’t be a problem inside of Boca Raton homes, but they also like to forage for food in kitchens and bathrooms. The good news is that, unless it feels that its nest is being threatened, the bigheaded ant won’t bite or sting.
Households around the world find these pests inside their homes and, because they’ll eat just about any kind of food (from sweet to fatty to oily), they’ll quickly and easily find something to eat in just about any house.They can be difficult to spot because they build nests in unusual spots, including in trash piles and inside of appliances. Because they find their way into such inaccessible spots, homeowners often need a professional ant exterminator to get rid of them.

Ant Prevention Strategies In & Around Your Home
Ideally, you’ll want to help keep ants out of your Boca Raton home, in between your professional ant control service calls. To help you accomplish this, here are tips:
- Check your home for cracks, crevices, holes, and other entry points. Caulk them to keep the pests out. Also keep weather stripping in good condition and ensure that you don’t have loose mortar around your foundation.
- Keep your countertops and floors free of crumbs and spills, and seal up dry foods in containers with tight lids.
- Take trash out of your home frequently and make sure the outdoor garbage lids are tightly closed.
- Prevent ants from finding water in your home. Fix leaks, maintain your gutters, and keep water moving away from your home’s foundation.
- Put away pet bowls (food and water) when they’re done eating.
- Trim bushes, branches, and shrubs near the home to get rid of any onway ramps to your house.
