Ant infestations are something that most property owners deal with at one point or another. Seeing a few ants is normal, but how do you know when you have an infestation that needs to be treated by a professional ant exterminator? Because ants can spread into multiple colonies quickly, it can be extremely difficult to control all of them without an expert. When you’re dealing with a dangerous ant species or trying to control a colony that just won’t seem to quit, it’s best to call an ant control company.
How to control ant infestations
Anyone who has dealt with an ant infestation knows how difficult they can be to completely get rid of. DIY treatments aren’t always effective for bad infestations, which is why it’s important to call for professional help. Some of the ways a professional ant exterminator will work to control ants in your property include:
- A full property inspection
- Identification of the species of ant inside your property
- A treatment plan to control the ants using safe, effective, and top-of-the-line products
- A customized approach to preventing future ant problems
Are ants dangerous?
Most types of ants pose few threats and are primarily a nuisance pest. Certain ant species, such as the fire ant and tawny ant, can be more than just a nuisance. Fire ants are an aggressive species that may sting when threatened or if their nest is disturbed. These ants are often found around sidewalks or near driveways, which is why they’re frequently near your property.
Tawny ants are also known to be aggressive. Perhaps the most dangerous ant species is the carpenter ant. These wood-boring ants live and tunnel through wood, and can destruct structures when left untreated. When dealing with any of these ants, it’s important to call a professional to remove them safely and effectively.
