Ant Control in Southwest Florida



There is roughly 7.2 billion people in this world. No matter how you look at it, that is not a small number by any means. How about ants? How many ants do you think are on earth? While the exact number will never be truly known, estimates vary between 100 trillion (that is with a “T”) and 10,000 trillion ants! Even on the low end, that’s a hefty number of ants.

To help grapple this number, let’s take 7.2 billion and make that 7.2 billion seconds. How many hours do you think that is? It’s not just seconds as it is nearly 228 years. Now let’s take the low end of 100 trillion, how many seconds do you think that is? That number is a staggering 3.17 MILLION years. This gives you a perspective on the size of the battle we are facing.

Ant control here in Southwest Florida is and will always be a persistent and ongoing issue with a population that large. Lucky for you, you have All “U” Need Pest Control on your side here in Southwest Florida!


Don’t let their size fool you, ants are clever! Ants will enter your home or business here in Southwest Florida in search of three things: food, water, and shelter. During our hotter summer months, when infestations are more common, ants can be found around the dishwasher, showers, kitchen & bathroom sinks, and toilets. They can also be found out in your lanai as well as around your home or business outside. As soon as an ant colony finds a water source, they will spread out in search of a nearby food source. Often, poor sanitation is the leading cause of an ant infestation. Dirty dishes in the sink, food on countertops, spilled foods like crumbs are left on the floor, and not taking out the trash regularly provide the perfect meal for food hunting ants. Even perfectly clean homes can have hidden food sources we don’t see.

With just a few foragers entering your home, that number can expand into a HUGE problem if the ants decide to establish a colony in your walls, lawn and even the foundation.

They will provide you with a full inspection of your home or business here in southwest Florida in order to identify your ant infestation as well as the severity of it.

While performing your ant control inspection, your pest control technician will identify any problem areas, openings in which ants can enter, water sources, as well as probable food sources. Once identified, your pest control technician will create a unique and customized ant control treatment plan to not only eliminate the infestation, but to ensure they don’t return.

Eliminating the ant infestation at hand is only the beginning. We prevent future unwanted and unwelcome infestations from taking hold of your property and starting a new colony. We treat specific areas to take out the heart of the infestation. Nearly all ant colonies originate from outside as they work their way inside by either small cracks and openings or by inadvertently bringing them in with an item they are attached to. Our highly skilled technicians will point out potential problem areas of your property as well as recommendations that will help you to keep them out.
