We treat for ants! First our technician comes to do a consultation on where the ants are coming from, and then we treat!
The consultation shows what on your property could be making the ant route into your home easier. We provide a checklist of ways to prevent ants and create a less hospitable environment for them, and then we treat. The goal is not to just get rid of ants temporarily, but to prevent them returning in the future. We use a variety of products that will target ants without interrupting their pheromone trails.
The ant products we use are specially formulated to spread on contact to other ants. Ants are very social creatures and communicate through touch. Once our product reaches the queen, the whole gallery will collapse. Did you know that a new ant gallery can move into a vacant ant hill? That’s why we’ve discovered treating for ants is more than just applying product, it’s about changing the environment directly around your home.
Prevent ants from returning
Some items that help prevent easy ant access: Trim trees that touch or overhang your home so there is no easy path from trees to your home. Trim bushes surrounding your home so they aren’t touching. It’s important to remove organic material from around your home so when we apply the product it will actually go to where the ants are and not just on top of leaves or pine needles.
