Ants are the most pest common complaint that we receive, and they are one of the most difficult pests to eliminate. Foragers are likely to enter your home in search of food, water, and other resources. When they find when they are looking for, they send signals back to the nest, and suddenly you have a full blown army!
Trying to eliminate ants with store bought chemicals is often a waste, as most ants will simply avoid them. Furthermore, for every ant you kill, there are many more to take its place. The colonies of some species of ants can grow into the hundreds of thousands or even millions.
Often, we get calls from distraught homeowners who have located and sprayed a nest, only to find that they are still having problems with ants. Certain species of ants will build multiple, distinct supercolonies or satellite nests, so expertise in ant identification, biology, and behavior is neccessary to treat successfully.
Finally, ant species have a wide variety of food preferences, behaviors, and nesting areas. This means that effective treatment will often require a wide range of chemical formulations, active ingredients, and application methods.
