Ghost ants are extremely small and pale in color, which makes them difficult to see. Workers are all the same size. Ghost ants can be distinguished from other ant species by the following characteristics:Ghost ants are highly adaptable nesters, capable of living outdoors and indoors. Outside, they make their nests in the ground near stones, logs or woodpiles, and even moist grass and plant stems. They enter buildings on trails that they make along the ground,also by trailing on utility lines or tree limbs and shrubs that touch the house. When ghost ants make nests indoors, it is usually inside wall voids or behind cabinets and baseboards.
Carpenter ants build nests inside wood preferably that is dead and damp. They do not consume the wood, unlike termites. Sometimes, carpenter ants hollow out sections of trees. They also commonly infest wooden buildings and structures, and are a widespread nuisance and major cause of structural damage.
The American cockroach is the largest of the common cockroaches measuring on average 4 cm in length. They occurs in buildings throughout Florida, especially in commercial buildings. It consumes decaying organic matter but is a scavenger and will eat almost anything.
Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents. Rat species cause problems by gnawing on electrical wires and wooden structures such as doors, ledges, and wall material. They also tear up insulation in walls and ceilings for nesting.
Mice are small rodents that are characterized by having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scale tail and a high breeding rate. House mice consume and contaminate food meant for humans, and animals. They cause considerable damage to structures and property, and they can transmit pathogens that cause diseases such as salmonella, a form of food poisoning. Droppings, fresh gnaw marks, and tracks indicate areas where mice are active.
