Fort Lauderdale Pest Pressure

Nighttime Nuisances
Year-round, the city of Fort Lauderdale, FL, has balmy weather and plenty of humidity. Such favorable conditions favor insect development and bring insects indoors, some of which have habits that make them difficult to control. Nocturnal home-invading pests include:

The two major cockroach species in Fort Lauderdale are the American cockroach and German cockroach species. American cockroaches may enter homes through sewers or cracks in foundations, while German cockroaches are often brought into homes through infested items. Once inside, the pests pollute whatever they touch with bacteria and waste. Roaches like to stay near pipes, drains, and toilets, as they prefer moist, dark habitats.

Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are blood-sucking insects. They hide in mattresses, bed frame crevices, and numerous other places. The pests stay in cracks and crevices during the day and become active taking blood meals at night. Despite popular belief, even well-kept Florida homes can fall prey to bed bug infestations. To get indoors, the pests simply travel on infested clothing, luggage, or used furniture brought inside the home.

Daytime Pests
Two daytime pests that visit Fort Lauderdale homes are:

House Flies
In addition to being a nuisance, house flies can transmit disease. The life cycle and diet of house flies relies, in part, on manure and garbage. After picking up germs, they may contaminate food, eating off utensils or prep surfaces in the kitchen.

From carpenter ants to crazy ants, many species of these pests invade Fort Lauderdale homes. The insects contaminate food and infest structures with their nests. Ants eat a variety of items and change their food preferences based on the time of year and the colony’s needs. Their large numbers and small size make ant control a challenge.
