Most Common Pests in Southwest Florida

Florida has very favorable weather for many pests and bugs. Here are the most common and the distinct signs you should be aware of when identifying them.


Did you know that a well-organized termite colony consists of more than a million hungry workers? These consume more than 100 pounds of wood every year severely damaging your wood structure if not treated in time.

In the United States, the most common types of termites are:

  • Eastern Subterranean Termites: These termites live underground and construct mud tubes as passageways from their nest to around a home or business. Over time these cause a lot of damage as they eat through any wood.
  • Drywood termites: This type of termite lives inside the wood. and their colonies are much smaller than those of subterranean termites. They shed their wings when they settle on a place to have their colonies so look out for piles of insect wings.
  • Formosan Subterranean Termites: These are the most threatening as they are more aggressive when eating through the wood. Their colonies can also be bigger with a queen living up to 15 years. Just like the other subterranean termites, these create mud tubes as passageways.


Ant infestation is typically easier to identify than other pests. These are the common signs:

  • A large number of ants in your kitchen or mostly in parts where food is processed and stored.
  • You can spot ant nests. These usually look like piles of soil or dirt. Some types of ants live in your walls so those might be difficult to identify.

Usually, ants make their way into your home for several reasons:

  • There are cracks on your foundation.
  • Your home is not properly cleaned.
  • There is vegetation near your home that attracts them.


Cockroaches are known to spread bacteria and cause asthma and allergy attacks. They usually enter your home through drain pipes, vents, cracks, and holes seeking food and shelter. They also reproduce rapidly so we encourage you to contact a pest control expert as soon as you see one.

Here are some of the signs that should alarm you:

  • You notice dropping around your property. These look similar to black ground pepper. You can spot these in floors and window corners and cabinets.
  • You find their egg casings. These are a brown color and can be easily spotted.
  • You start smelling a musky odor. The odor comes from live cockroaches so the stronger it is, the bigger the infestation.
