Let’s face it, there are very few things as frustrating as a cockroach infestation. The very thought of these roaches crawling around your home or place of work is enough to send a shiver up the spine of most people, and it should come as no surprise that for many in Fort Lauderdale the idea of a cockroach infestation is one of their biggest fears. However, what many people fail to realize is that if this problem is tackled early, then it doesn’t have to spell the end for your family home or business. Thankfully for you, that is where we at Anteater's Pest Control come in.
Our commitment to cockroach control is unrivaled and we work diligently each and every day to make sure that our residential and commercial clients in the Fort Lauderdale area get the high-quality and reliable service that they deserve.

Too many pest control companies in Fort Lauderdale come in, spray, and then slam the door behind them, washing their hands and declaring a job well done.
But cockroaches are some of the most durable pests on the planet. Crafty, cunning, and with an exoskeleton that can withstand a lot more than you’d expect, cockroaches are extremely hard to eradicate from any Fort Lauderdale home. After all, they have only one driving instinct—survive, at all costs—and they’ve evolved to do just that.
So any cockroach control method with a fighting chance needs to be comprehensive, flexible and tailored to the unique situation in your home or business.
When Anteater's Pest Control comes to your Fort Lauderdale property, we take the time to accurately assess how severe the infestation is. We’ll do a full inspection of the perimeter of your property to see where the cockroaches may have entered.
Our forensic approach to pest control looks at all vantage points: how the insects may have entered your home, where they are finding food and moisture, and where they are likely to hide during the day to avoid detection. Cockroaches are smart and adaptable; they can hide inside furniture, in walls, under piles of wood, and even in the roof of your property.
We then assist you in removing all sources of food and water that the cockroaches are using to sustain themselves with. This is usually the least ‘fun’ part of dealing with a cockroach infestation. Cockroaches can eat nearly anything, including materials like wood or paper.
However, cockroaches need moisture to survive, and can’t survive more than a few days without water. Cutting off the bugs’ supply of moisture is crucial to a successful eradication campaign. After the environmental factors are taken care of, we use poisoned bait as well as spray pesticide to render your home unliveable for bugs but still safe for you and your loved ones. If you have pets, we will take special precautions to make sure there’s no risk to Fido or Fluffy.
Because our approach attacks your roach infestation from every angle, most of our Fort Lauderdale clients only need one or two follow-up appointments. On a follow-up, we inspect the house or workplace again to see if any new sources of food are apparent or any other signs of cockroach infestation are present.
Roach droppings are visible to the untrained eye, but there are other subtle signs of cockroach infestations that may go unnoticed by you, your loved ones, or your employees. Scheduling a follow-up is a crucial part of Anteater's Pest Control’s cockroach control process that ensures that roaches get and stay out of your home or business—for good!
You may know a lot about cockroaches, but did you know that they are nocturnal, and mostly prefer coming out at night? Also, are you aware that they prefer hiding and living in dark, moist areas across your home compared to bright open spaces. The agility and flexibility of cockroaches means that they can easily fit behind appliances such as fridges, sinks and stoves to cause maximum inconvenience for your home or business. When all these things are considered, it can often seem difficult trying to identify signs of a cockroach infestation. However, the following two telltale signs that indicate the absolute presence of cockroaches in your Fort Lauderdale home or business are as follows:
