Pest Control for Ants

WHAT WE DO FOR YOU

Ants are found all over the world living in a range of different climates and environments. Of the 12,000 identified species of ants only a handful are likely to invade your home but when they do a professional ant control specialist is your best bet for a speedy resolution. The carpenter ant, the pavement ant, the little black ant, the odorous house ant, the thief ant, and the pharaoh ant are most commonly found ants living in and around homes. Ants are social insects that live in colonies with one or more queens and make their home in soil, gardens and inside houses. They are commonly found around the perimeter of homes and can be seen foraging inside houses for food and water where they can become quite the nuisance. For safe and effective ant control, trust Skedaddle’s experienced team of pest professionals to protect your home and family.

Identify & Eliminate

Ants are social insects that live in colonies with one or more queens and make their home in soil, gardens and inside houses. They are commonly found around the perimeter of homes and can be seen foraging inside houses for food and water where they can become quite the nuisance. For safe and effective ant control, trust Skedaddle’s experienced team of pest professionals to protect your home and family. Based on the appearance, location and behaviour of the ants our technicians will be able to identify the species involved which helps to ensure a targeted treatment plan. Ants belong to colonies so spraying the ones you can see doesn’t do much to prevent the ants you can’t see from returning and can scatter the colony to other parts of the home. To eliminate the colony you need to take out the queen and the grubs that will become the next generation of ants. Carefully applied baits that can be carried by the worker ants back to the nest are your best bet for elimination.

Clean & Control

Proper sanitation is critical to preventing and controlling future ant infestations. Ants communicate using pheromones, chemicals they release to help send messages to the entire colony. Cleaning and wiping surfaces can help to disrupt ants and aid in ongoing control. Stay ahead of future ant problems through Skedaddle seasonal pest control program that uses a combination of sanitation, baits and repellents to keep ants in check.

Monitor & Protect

Ongoing monitoring and preventative treatments are essential to controlling future ant infestations. Most ant problems inside originate in the yard or garden. Reducing ant population pressure around the home through seasonal exterior inspections and preventative treatments creates a protective buffer, reducing the risk of having a new infestation on the interior.
