Ants are the number one nuisance pest in the United States. There are several species, and the method of ant control and extermination will depend on what kind of ant problem you have. The experts at Steve’s Pest Control can determine which ants you’re dealing with and how to get rid of them for good.
How did I get ants in my home?
Food is the primary attracter of ants. Whether it’s crumbs on the floor, unwashed dishes in the sink, or trash that doesn’t go out as often as it should, ants will come for it. Just a couple of them can turn into colonies quickly, so the ant control problem needs to be solved sooner than later.
Are ants really a problem?
The biggest issue related to an ant infestation comes with their potential to contaminate food. Bacteria will attach to the bodies of ants and spread as the ants crawl through cupboards and over countertops. Additionally, it takes a lot to get rid of them, creating a nuisance for you and your family.
Will a repellent spray solve the issue?
Getting rid of ants can be tricky. Ants are social insects that reside in colonies in the hundreds of thousands. In order to properly eradicate the problem, the whole colony has to be extinguished – not just the ones you can see. So a repellent spray may make things better for today, but it won’t fix the real problem.
How can I get rid of them for good?
Thankfully, Steve’s Pest Control has the experience when it comes to ant eradication. There are two main types of ant control problems: ants that have built nests outside and are coming in to your home, and the ants that have already built nests inside of your home. An experienced technician will come to your home, determine the issue, and come up with a plan of action to remove the colonies in a timely manner.
