Our Ant Control Service
Our Unique Approach To Ant Control
Ants enter your home through the smallest openings looking for water and food. Once they find a source, they will leave a pheromone trail for other ants to follow. Our team knows this and stops ants dead in their tracks. Learn more about our unique approach to ant control below:
1. ANT INSPECTION
We’ll perform a thorough inspection in and around your home. Inside, we’ll inspect all carpet edges, doors, windows, and your kitchen. Outside, we’ll check your foundational walls, plus areas of vegetation and mulch.
2. INTERIOR ANT TREATMENT
We’ll place professional ant baits in areas of activity and trails. Ants feed on this bait and take pieces back to the queen, killing the entire colony. This approach ensures the whole ant nest is eliminated.
3. EXTERIOR ANT TREATMENT
First, we’ll caulk and seal cracks and crevices to prevent exterior ants from entering your home. Next, we’ll carefully apply a non-repellent insecticide around the perimeter and entry-points of your home.

Frequently Asked Questions
Ants invade homes looking for food and water. So if you leave dirty dishes in the sink, food residue on your counters, or crumbs on the floor, you’re essentially inviting meal-seeking ants into your home. This becomes a problem when those ants set up their nests in your walls, on your lawn, and around your home’s foundation.
Ant infestations are a pretty big deal. One of the biggest problems related to ants is food contamination. Ants carry bacteria on their bodies, which spreads when they crawl in your sink and across your countertops. Now, only a few ant species carry insect-borne diseases, but finding any ants in your home is an unpleasant surprise.
