Ants Pest Control
Ants are known for their tenacity, speed of multiplication and constant drive to attain more resources to strengthen their colony. Many homes find themselves under assault by ants, and while some homes are fortunate enough to have this occur only after food has been left outside and can deal with the infestation by keeping it away from their reach, others aren’t so lucky and find themselves with a recurring problem of ants overruning their home. If you find yourself facing an infestation like this, you should call us immediately as ants are very quick to reproduce and spread.
There are several types of ants that can plague one’s home or garden as well as any other type of structure or surface involving soil and nutrients. Ants enter homes through various entry points and it can be next to impossible to seal them all off because of ants’ size. They enter looking for nutrition that involves any type of sufficiently greasy or sweet food as well as water and, once they find it, can be extremely persistent in looking for other food and water sources in the area.
What causes ant infestation is the fact that they leave a scent trail of pheromones for other ants to follow whenever they have found an adequate source of nutrients. Other ants then enter the location and form a colony that can nest in just about every place in and around a structure like walls, soil or structure foundations. Ants’ colonies can number up to 500,000 workers and act as a mobile unit that can quickly move to a nearby spot should you attempt to get rid of the colony yourself, which is why you will need the help of one of our exterminators in order to free your home of these pests.
Worker ants can live up to seven years during which they constantly scour your home looking for nutrition in order to assist their colony. Because most ways of dealing with ants address only those that are in sight and not the ever-expanding colony, in order to get rid of ants efficiently you will need the help of a trained and experienced exterminator. Our professional will arrive at your home as soon as you contact us about your ant issue and will first assess the level of infestation as well as examining the species of ants pestering you, as not all ants are dealt with using the same methods.
Then, our exterminator will take all the necessary steps in order to eliminate all of the ants as well as efficiently and permanently obliterate their colony, not allowing them to relocate and continue thriving on the food and water in and around your home. You should always look to keep any food that might be attractive to ants tightly sealed in order to avoid drawing the ants to your home. However, once ants have been attracted to your home enough to form a colony, you will need to call us and schedule an extermination if you ever hope to efficiently deal with the infestation you have found yourself under.
