Fire ants, carpenter ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants, field ants, and the list goes on. Ants come in all different shapes and sizes but one thing will always hold true: ants do not belong in the house. Ants can make their way into your home through even the tiniest of cracks, and when one ant comes, there are usually more. As the song goes, “the ants go marching one by one” and this is because of the scent trails they leave behind to tell others where the food is.
Traps may work to kill the individual ants, but a full extermination is necessary to get rid of the source of the ants and the other 500,000 members of their colony. With our team of experts, we will find the ants’ hideaways, treat them according to their type, exterminate the colony, and prevent these pesky creatures from invading your home again.
Similar to termites, carpenter ants can do a great deal of damage to the wooded surfaces in and around your home. Unlike termites, however, they do not eat the wood, but rather, they build colonies within it and spread satellite colonies far and wide within your home. These creatures are typically black and red, about ¼ inch long, and can bite when messed with.
Our services work to locate colonies both inside and outside of your home and put a stop to them. Through our advanced methods, we will locate all colonies and deal with them quickly and effectively. Our treatment is safe and keeps them from coming back. While we do our part, it is also important that you do yours. After our treatment, make sure to keep your house clean, moisture levels down, and firewood and scrap wood should be stored outside and away from your home.
Their name says it all. Fire ants are medium-sized red or black ants that have a poisonous bite. Their bite will leave you with a stinging, burning sensation for a long period of time. These pests build mounds outside in the soil and dirt and will attack anything that comes near them. Although only 1% of the population is deathly allergic to fire ant bites, they can still cause serious irritation and disturb everyday activities simply by their presence alone. For this reason, humans often need to change their outdoor activities accordingly and self-extermination is not recommended. Call us today to get rid of these pests and stop them from returning.
Our exterminators will locate any and all fire ant mounds and deal with them accordingly. Unlike typical pesticides that just kill individual ants, we are able to attack the colony and get to the root of the problem.
