Ants are incredible creatures and one of the most successful insects on earth. In nature, ants are a primary source of nutrition for many animals. They aerate more soil than the earthworm, take advantage of every conceivable environmental condition, and can be found in every area of the world except for the polar ice caps. However, carpenter ants have been known to cause structural damage to homes and businesses. As they prefer moist and damp wood, moisture is the key component to look for if you suspect that you have a carpenter ant problem.
Pharaoh ants have become a very serious nuisance pest in hospitals, rest homes, apartment dwellings, hotels, grocery stores, food establishments and other buildings. They feed on a wide variety of foods including jellies, honey, shortening, peanut butter, corn syrup, fruit juices, baked goods, soft drinks, greases, dead insects and even shoe polish. Pharaoh ants may carry organisms that can cause disease. They are usually much harder to control than other ants because of their ability to disperse. Control is difficult and often long term (months to years), depending on the building size, wall voids, etc., especially in hospitals and food plants.
Everguard Exterminators Will Perform the Following:
- Perform a thorough inspection.
- Identify the species of ant involved.
- Determine where the ant colonies are located.
Everguard Exterminators Will Then Advise You on Your Treatment Options:
- Treat the ant colonies directly if possible.
- Use baits for ant colonies that cannot be treated directly using baits designed to eliminate the colony.
- Recommend a weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly schedule — especially in the case of Pharaoh ants.
Don't Purchase Retail Ant Baits!
Almost all over-the-counter baits sold at local hardware and retailer stores do not contain the same levels of attractants or ingredients as the baits professionals use. Even though the package and the advertising make incredible claims regarding performance of the product, consumers waste millions of dollars annually on these types of ant bait products that just don't work. Although aerosol sprays will kill on contact, they will do little to the ant colony which is the source of the problem.
