Lantana is situated in Palm Beach County in Florida. It's just a few dozen miles north of Fort Lauderdale and within distance of Miami.

Tropical-like environments are some of the most beautiful on Earth.

Common Pest Control Problems in Lantana
Unfortunately, along with the gorgeous flowers and natural wildlife found throughout Lantana comes some nasty pests as well.
As any citizen of Florida can attest, they love the warm and wet environments. Since this area's conditions are good for ants, there are many kinds. Fire ants, raspberry ants, and many others can live here; two of the most common are:
- Carpenter Ants - These ants are real trouble for your house since they go right after the wood in your walls. They are essentially trying to make your house their house by burrowing through the wood as a way to go safely between food sources and nests.
- Crazy Ants - These ants come up from South America and they tend to move towards electronics. They like to hide in them, and they like heat and vibration.
Wasps and Bees
South Florida can have some serious wasps and bees. They thrive in this environment and they can make their homes in trees outside as well as in your house or fences.
It won't take them long to build a sizable presence and threaten anyone who comes near. You want a pro to handle this for you due to the potential danger involved.
These potentially dangerous parasites are hard to spot and they can infect humans as well as any pets you have. If your pets go outside at all, they can pick up fleas and then spread them to you. You do not want to leave this infection unchecked for very long.
Mice and Rats
These rodents can live about anywhere so it's not strange that you will find some in Lantana. They can breed within a single day of having a litter of a dozen for mice and even more for rats. It only takes them a few weeks within being born to make more baby rodents. So, if you see chew marks and burrowed holes in the walls, it may be time to get help before you are over-run.
There's a reason why we use the term- 'cockroach' to refer to something that won't die. They can be resistant to normal methods, which is why you need specialists. These pests are especially dangerous because they can infect humans with diseases. The four main types of cockroaches in South Florida include the German roach, the American roach, the Australian roach, and the brown-banded roach. This is sometimes called the Oriental cockroach. Small black dots lying everywhere will give them away.
Silverfish love it in places where it's warm and wet, again making South Florida their perfect environment. They can eat textiles, books, and fabrics. They are also long-lived so you can't just count on them dying off since they can survive for years and years.
Wherever insects go, spiders follow. In South Florida, you can have the dangerous brown recluse spiders, brown widows, crab spiders, and others. Since it's tropical, some can even be highly poisonous. Webs and eggs will give them away.
Termites are like ants except only worse because they are trying to eat your house instead of just live there. They can cause as much as A billion dollars to homes just in the U.S. Massive wood damage is a clear sign you have a problem.
