Ant removal is a very specific process. We offer various treatment options dependent upon several factors to effectively get rid of ants. Selecting the most effective treatment method to completely eliminate the ant colony depends on the following:
If you are noticing signs of ants on your property, contact us and one of our pest control specialists will schedule a time that is convenient for you for a free inspection inside and outside your premises. After inspection, your specialist will recommend a treatment plan based on your infestation and your property, providing you with an estimated cost. Once approved, your specialist will put the treatment plan in motion, providing you with an ant-free home.
Ants are very persistent, and when there is one, there are more. Ants leave pheromone trails to alert the other members of the colony where to go to get the food. An ant’s pheromone trail can last even longer than any deterrent material, which is why they often require multiple services to completely eliminate them.
At the start of your inspection, your technician will look for all areas where the ants may be nesting, as well as where they are traveling to and from. Your technician will use a combination of residual material and baits to work on eliminating the colonies around the home and prevent new colonies from developing.
Due to the persistent nature of this pest, we recommend that you treat ants as a part of our year-round preventative mainteance plan, PestFree365+. With PestFree365+, your technician will visit seasonally to employ prevention methods so the ants do not come back, while also working to break the life cycle of these pests on the exterior for long-term peace of mind.
Below are a few of our custom removal processes per species.
Ant infestations grow quickly and are much easier to treat before they get too large. Over-the-counter ant repellent sprays and DIY methods can create larger problems, causing ants to split in different directions in a process called “budding.” This can lead to entirely new colonies being formed. These at-home methods typically only target a portion of the infestation, and with ants, you need to eliminate the entire colony.
Working with Ehrlich, your specialist will ensure all the ants and their colony, in its entirety, have been eliminated. This will leave you stress-free, giving you peace of mind to relax in your home.
The best way to prevent ants from coming into your home is to remove the things that are attracting them to your property, such as food and liquid spills, pet food, and dirt. Ants will keep returning unless changes are made around your property and within your home.
A few signs of an ant infestation are numerous live ants in your kitchen, ant pathways or trails in and out of your home, and ant nests.
Ants are searching for three things: food, shelter, and water. If your yard provides those three essentials to ants, then you will most likely end up with ants nesting near your home. We would recommend having a specialist come perform a property inspection to see what areas of your yard may be attracting ants.
Ants are looking for food, shelter, and water. They will eat just about anything, but prefer sweets. If you have any tiny openings in your home - think holes in window or door screens, cracks in the foundation, openings under doorways - ants can crawl right in searching for their next meal.
It is not recommended to perform ant control on your own. Though some DIY solutions may solve an ant problem temporarily, these methods do not eliminate the entire ant colony as they only act to deter the ants and do not get rid of the whole ant colony and their nest.
