Plenty of types of ants call Davie home, each having unique characteristics—and one key thing in common: you don’t want any of them in your house. Here are just seven of the species found in our area, starting with one that can be downright dangerous.
- Fire Ants: Keep your distance from these ants. Their stings are painful and can lead to intense itching and pustules. For people who are allergic to the stings, fire ant stings can cause severe reactions, ones that can even be life-threatening. Fire ants will attack people, as well as their pets, and are likely to reinfest areas if not properly controlled.
- Bigheaded Ants: These ants like to forage in people’s kitchens and bathrooms and are a growing nuisance in South Florida.
- Carpenter Ants: These ants love sweetness and moisture, and they leave a trail to their nests that can be tracked. Watch out, though. They bite.
- Crazy Ants: This unpredictable species isn’t picky about what they eat or where they nest. They don’t even follow trails like other species do.
- Ghost Ants: Also known as sugar ants, the good news is that their bites are not significant. The less pleasant news? They love to feast on sugary foods, including those in your cupboards and kitchen countertops. Need more information? Read our post on how to get rid of ghost ants.
- Pharaoh Ants: These pests will eat just about any food they can find, and they’re quite good at finding food to enjoy. This is a major pest in the United States.
- White-Footed Ants: These critters with black bodies and white feet can be especially problematic during the summer months. Unfortunately, ant bait doesn’t work with them. Need an ant exterminator near you?
Roaches are nasty pests that can carry serious diseases, including typhoid, dysentery, and the virus causing polio. Plus, they can carry dozens of types of bacteria and six species of parasitic worms. They can also trigger allergies via the skin and body parts they shed, plus the feces they leave behind. Although there are plenty of cockroach species, there are two that are especially common in Florida.
- German Cockroach — This is the most common type—which isn’t surprising since one single female can have 30,000 babies annually.
- Brown-Banded Cockroach — If you see dark brown roaches with two lighter brown stripes across their bodies, this is likely to be the species.
Cockroaches are resilient pests, which make it extremely difficult to exterminate them, DIY—and, because they reproduce so efficiently if you see one roach in your home, you probably have an entire infestation.
Maybe you’ve seen them in your Davie home. Or, maybe you’ve heard their rustling at night or smelled their odd odor. No matter why you suspect an infestation, you want them out of your house, STAT.

Mosquitoes, like roaches, can carry dangerous diseases, with just a partial list from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) including “Zika virus, West Nile virus, Chikungunya virus, dengue, and malaria.” When swarms exist outside your Davie home, you might not even want to spend time outdoors. After all, who wants to be greeted by mosquitoes when opening the door?
Our affordable, effective mosquito control services include barrier spray treatments, all-natural mosquito control, and special event treatments. For extra protection, we offer the safe and effective In2Care Mosquito Trap. Egg-laying mosquitoes are lured in them and, when they leave, they carry an EPA-approved larvicide with them, spreading contamination to other breeding sites. This green mosquito extermination method kills larvae and exposed adult pests while being safe for beneficial insects, such as bees and butterflies, and your pets.
Rodents cause problems in two key ways: They spread harmful diseases, both directly and indirectly, while also damaging your home. Diseases they carry that can be dangerous to your family and pets include hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV), salmonella, and tularemia, the plague, rat-bite fever, monkeypox, and more.
Some diseases are spread when the rat or mouse feces and urine break down into particles and become airborne. Other times, a flea bites an infected rodent and then the flea spreads disease. (So, also ask about our flea and tick treatments.) They get into food supplies in homes, leaving their nasty droppings behind.
Besides spreading disease, rats can cause significant damage to your home. They can chew on wooden beams, pipes, and soft concrete, which can cause structural damage. When they chew through wires (and they do!), this can start house fires. They can also gnaw on insulation.
When you’re looking for a rodent exterminator near you, contact us to get rid of unwanted rats and mice.
Bed Bug Exterminators
Bed bugs hitch rides on suitcases, clothing, shoes, and more, making Florida a prime place for them to travel to and settle in. Then, unlike some other kinds of pests, they stick around throughout the year. Bed bugs feed off of blood and, when people in your family get bitten, the bites can become infected. In short, these critters are a true nuisance, ones that don’t respond well to DIY pest control treatments. Fortunately, our bed bug exterminators can help.
Bee & Wasp Removal Services
Florida is home to 300+ hundred species of bees with 29 of them only living in our state. Honeybees are great pollinators, which is wonderful, but most bees will sting to protect their nests—which they often build near homes. If someone is allergic to their stings, this can become a medical emergency. Meanwhile, both of Florida’s main wasp species will sting and can cause problems for you. Fortunately, our professional bee & wasp removal team can safely remove their nests.
Spiders come in a range of sizes as well as shapes and colors. Some are venomous. Others aren’t. The problem is that they often hide and, by the time they bite you, it’s too late to analyze what species you think you might have. Because Florida has two different species of venomous spiders (recluse and widow), if you find more than one or two random ones (or suspect venomous ones), it makes sense to outsource this problem to professional spider exterminators.
White Fly Treatment
This pest looks somewhat like a fly with small white wings, but they’re most closely related to aphids and mealybugs. Once a few get in or near your house, females will reproduce rapidly there, laying 200 to 400 eggs at a time. Although they don’t harm people, white flies can kill plants. Plus, they excrete a substance that creates mold and attracts other pests. If you need help with any of hundreds of varieties, contact us for white fly treatments.
Flea & Tick Exterminator
Fleas and ticks bite people and pets (and birds) and feed off their blood. Bites from these tiny insects can feel sore and itchy with some people also developing rashes or hives. Sometimes, the bites can get infected. Plus, these tiny insects can also carry some big diseases and transmit them to people and their animals. Once they get into your Davie home, they can be hard to usher out, but our flea & tick exterminators can do it for you.
Wildlife Removal Services
When going for a nature walk, you may appreciate seeing wildlife in the great outdoors—but you won’t want to see raccoons, squirrels, skunks, birds, and other wild creatures in your home or business. They can transmit diseases to your family, pets, employees, and customers. They damage structures and serve as a real nuisance. If you’ve got critters in your Davie home or surrounding area, our trained wildlife removal specialists are an email or phone call (954) 953-4473) away. We’re here to help!
