Ant Control Services
Some insects are more of a pest than a health hazard, and ants fall into the uninvited guest category. Ants use pheromones to communicate with other members of their colony, so once one finds its way into your kitchen, you can be confident others are on their way. The most common ants you’ll find in Virginia are:
Little Black Ants
The name says it all: little black ants are tiny and jet black. They have relatively small colonies and are quick to pick up and move to the next location if their colony is disturbed, so it’s challenging to get rid of them for good.
Carpenter ants are large—a quarter inch to half an inch long—and black with long antennae. They prefer to chomp on moist, decayed wood but will expand to sound wood as well, including the foundation of your home.
Odorous House Ants
These ants are distinct, not because of their appearance, but because of their smell that is compared to a rotten, coconut-like odor. They are most likely to enter your home when their colony becomes so big they have to start fighting for food. You’ll typically find their nests in the soil.
Pavement ants have a black body and a brown tint on their legs and antennae. They normally make these nests in the soil, but your warm home can draw them indoors during the winter time.
At ExtermPRO, We Work from The Outside in
How are ants getting into your home? That’s one of the biggest questions that needs to be answered when stopping an infestation. We start by looking for the nest, treating areas outside of the home, and then work our way inside if need be.
We value your safety, your kids’ safety, and your pets’ safety, so we only use green products indoors—the same ones we would feel comfortable using in our home.
