    There are multiple methods to ant control.

    • Spraying: Gives immediate control, and also provides a residual for extended control
    • Baiting:  This process does not give immediate control, but will usually result in a longer time period of control.  There is also no odor with our bait application.
    • Spraying gets rid of the ants that come in contact with the pesticide, where baiting targets the heart of the nest itself, resulting in a more permanent solution.

    Please give us a call so that we can help rid your home or business of all types of annoying ants.

    Some facts about ants:

    • Ants have recently replaced cockroaches as the number one pest in the United States.
    • More than 20 varieties of ants invade homes throughout the United States during the warm months of the year. Worldwide, there are more than 12,000 species, but only a small number cause problems.
    • Destructive ants include fire and carpenter ants. Others ant types include the honey, Pharaoh, house, Argentine, and the thief ant.
    • All ants share one trait: They’re unsightly and contaminate food.
    • Ants range in color from red to black.
    • Fire ants are vicious, unrelenting predators with a powerful, painful sting.
    • At least 32 deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to severe allergic reactions to fire ant stings.
    • Millions of dollars are spent each year eradicating fire ants alone.
    • Carpenter ants range in size from one-quarter inch for a worker ant to up to three-quarters inch for a queen.
    • A carpenter ant colony can have a long life span. Each colony is founded by a single fertilized queen that establishes a nesting site in a cavity in wood.
    • A carpenter ant colony does not reach maturity until it contains 2,000 or more workers, which can take three to six years.
