Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Florida

I have tenants who refuse to pay. They also refuse to answer any of my attempts to contact them, Knowing I live out of state this is very frustrating. I have started the eviction process but they told my son who served them with the three day notice, they will leave when they want.

My question is; after they have been served with eviction papers, can I move into my house even though they are still living there refusing to leave? Or can I enter the home and remove their things and change the locks. They have already stolen property that belonged to me from my own home.
