Named for their rapid, random movements, crazy ants often invade Florida homes. While the pests don’t sting, they do contaminate stored goods, especially items rich in sugar or protein. Large numbers of crazy ants can overwhelm living spaces. Their nests can be found some distance away from foraging areas such as trash bins, refuse piles, cavities in plants and trees, rotten wood, and in the soil.
Also called lady bugs, multicolored Asian lady beetles provide a vital service by eating aphids. However, these insects cause their own issues during infestations. In addition to bothering Pembroke Pines residents, lady bug populations stain cloth and surfaces with their secretions.
