Lynda, Home Buyer in 33322

I particularly like the areas in Plantation/Sunrise within the waterways. My question is because of the humidity are there a huge number of bugs

South Florida does have it share of bugs. The bug that bits is the mosquito and that seems to come out for about a month or two in the summer. The creature that ends up inside is usually a lizard. I live on a lake and that provides room between the homes usually making less of a bug problem.

Only outside :) Find a home with a screened in porch.
At the moment it is great weather in Florida.

Lynda- Unfortunately, there are bugs everywhere is S Fla. That being said- I live on the water in Davie and know that Bugs in S Fla love the water. Although that is somewhat obvious, we have a lawn Company that comes out once a month to spray the yard for bugs. Seems to work because I never see them in or around our home. Also, once a year pest control inside and using common sense; i.e. keep garbage cans closed, do dishes, do not leave food out- can also be helpful in keeping the bugs away.
I certainly hope this helps put your mind at ease--
Best of Luck in your new home search!!!!

Humidity is high all over SE Florida. If the water way is still then that's is a problem. ie misquitos. As to general care of your home I have a pest contol service spray all my property and shrubs once a month and have no issues. If you have a pool or patio then enclosing it, will allow you to enjoy with out misquitos. The more west you go towards the everglades the more you get.

Dear Lynda,

To answer your question, stand outside one of the homes or areas you like near the waterand see if you notice any bugs.
The best person to answer the question is you and what you consider to be a hugh number. Otherwise, look for a home that has a screened porch.
