High effectiveness, low active ingredient
Carpenter ants are most common in wooded areas, preferring to nest in trees and within the wooden structure of our homes. Contrary to what people may think, Carpenter ants don’t actually consume the wood, they only “chew it away” in order to make room for their growing colony. Therefore, the damage they do is mostly aesthetic, which can be rather costly depending on how active they’ve been before they were discovered.
Thankfully, we have a 100% success rate in destroying Carpenter ant colonies by using Termidor™ to treat areas of activity. Because Termidor™ is a non–repellent chemical, the ants will go on about their business and track through it, then unwittingly contaminate other members of the colony before they all die.
With all other ants (grouped or classified as Nuisance ants), we’ll investigate and identify their kind and then make a determination as to how best to professionally eliminate them with either baits, sprays, or a combination.
Q: “I have been spraying the ants myself but I think I’m running them instead?”
A: This is a common problem. Unless you know that your spraying will destroy the queen(s) then you’re very likely to run them to some other area.
If you’re treating them yourself, then you’re using a “consumer available” repellent chemical which is designed to repel and kill them. However, the problem with using a repellent is that it only kills the ants that get into the repellent chemical–it never destroys the colony unless the repellent can be directly applied to the colony.
Another problem with repelling the colony is that depending on the ant species that's invading your home, you may inadvertently repel the colony towards the interior of your home. Tracking them down through kitchen cabinets or interior walls and ceilings can turn out to be very time consuming, and then treatment can require a lot of patience, as well.
Contact us to treat your pest ant problem so we can get them the first time. Our certified technicians will use their professional judgment on whether to use traditional repellents and baits, or to use newer non–repellents.
