With our entire Pest Control Division, We adhere to an “Integrated Pest Management (IPM)” principle & philosophy which simply means we use a common-sense approach. We take advantage of existing mechanical & environmental controls (habitat modifications, removing attractants, using barriers, traps, etc.) combined with the responsible application of pesticides to eliminate the target pest. Our goal is to remove the nuisance pest while taking into consideration human health, non-target beneficial species and the environment.
Ant control can be difficult, but there are some things you should know about how ants’ behavior that can lead to big headaches for you. There are measures we can take to control it.
Ants can enter through the tiniest of cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food substances. Just like rodents with urine marking, Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate a good food source.
They can nest about anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations. Colonies can number up to 300,000 to 500,000. Compared to hornets and many other insects, ants & their colonies can live an exceptionally long time. Worker ants may live many years, and the Queen may live as long as 15 years.
If you have already lost a battle with destroying the colony, you already understand the challenge with destroying the nests. The goal is to gain access to the actual nest and destroy the Queen. However, there are so many different kinds of ant infestations which require different treatments.
Our Pest Management Expert can design a plan custom to your situation to remedy an ant infestation quickly and affordable.
