We Specialize in all your Ant Control Needs
Ants are among the most common house pests and they can be difficult to remove, even when following the directions for insecticides. Depending on the type of ant, they can damage building materials in your home or exterior. Carpenter ants, for example can eat wood, and nest inside. They tend to burrow through the cellulose in the wood and create tell tale signs of their presence. While they aren’t as invasive and damaging as termites, colonies can expand in the structure causing continuous damage over time. Other ants don’t leave the same amount of damage, but they can be a bother, crawling in through cracks and crevices in your home, invading and becoming a nuisance by getting in your food and appearing everywhere.
All ants are social insects, living in colonies, working a specific job, then returning to the colony. One way to treat them, is to focus on the nest. When the nests can be buried in the walls or crevices, they can be nearly impossible to find if you don’t know how to look for them. Sometimes there are baits that will work, but they have to target the worker ants who will be going back to the nest and carrying the poisons back to the colony.
