Ant & Roach Treatment in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Preventing Ants & Cockroaches

There are some pests that lead homeowners to take immediate action upon discovery, including bed bugs and poisonous spiders, and then there are pests like ants and cockroaches that people tend to ignore and take less seriously. Unfortunately, ants and roach infestations aren’t any less serious than bed bugs and other fear-inducing pests. Count on Manning Brothers Pest Control and our team of professional exterminators in Ft Lauderdale, Oakland Park & Orlando to take care of your ant or roach problem.

The best form of pest control is prevention. Ants and cockroaches, like every other pest, can be deterred and even prevented from taking up residence inside your home with a few easy steps. If prevention doesn’t work, or if ants and roaches are already causing havoc inside your home, let our pest control experts do what they do best.

  • Seal gaps around doors, windows, drain lines, and where utility lines enter the home
  • Keep areas around your home clear of thick, dead vegetation and keep mulch, shrubs, and trees at least one foot away from your home
  • Inspect firewood for ants, roaches, and other pests before bringing inside
  • Store food in glass, plastic, or metal containers with airtight lids
  • Clean the area beneath the baseboards, underneath the stove, and on top and beneath the refrigerator
  • Keep trash can closed, clean, and emptied regularly

Dangers and Risks

Ants – Ant populations can grow remarkably fast, so what started out as a few ants here and there can quickly turn into a very serious infestation. Although ant bites do not cause disease or serious injury, they can be painful and constant itching can lead to excessive scratching that in turn increases the chances of secondary skin infection. Some ant species, particularly the carpenter ant, can destroy wood and other building materials by excavating tunnels.

Cockroaches – Cockroaches, though unsightly and disgusting, may seem harmless enough. The truth is that a roach infestation in your home can lead to serious health risks. Certain proteins found in cockroach feces, saliva, and body parts can cause allergic reactions or trigger asthma symptoms, especially in children. Cockroaches also passively transport microbes on their body surfaces, including pathogens and bacteria that are potentially dangerous to humans such as E. coli and Salmonella.
