Ants are the most frequent and persistent pests encountered around homes and buildings. Besides being a nuisance, ants contaminate food, build unsightly mounds on our property, and cause structural damage by hollowing out wood for nesting.
To most householders, all ants look pretty much alike. In truth, dozens of different species occur around homes and buildings, each having unique characteristics which may influence the method of control.
The mistake most people make when attempting to control ants is only spraying the ones they see. This approach usually fails because the ants seen foraging over exposed surfaces is only a small portion of the colony. Typically, there will be thousands of additional ants including one or more egg-laying queens hidden somewhere in a nest. Eliminating queens and other colony members within nests is often the key to effective ant control.
We can control ants in the grass. This service receives best results when applications are made on a monthly basis. Our full program includes 5 applications in a year.
If the ants are on the house or in landscaping beds by the house, we can apply our BUG BARRIER shield to prevent them from getting inside. This is part of our Wasp & Spider Control Program.
