Carpenter Ants are among the largest and most difficult to control ants that commonly invade properties. The fast-spreading ants are often found traveling in areas such as water hoses, downspouts and anything on the building’s exterior that has corners or edges. The ant control process begins with the technician identifying all carpenter ant satellite colonies. Although various baits and bait formulations are available, the primary methods for carpenter ant control are nest and barrier treatments. Perimeter treatments are also often commonly applied to the exterior of the structure.
If an infestation of Sugar Ants is identified in a property, the technician will locate where the ant activity is taking place and use appropriate bait at that location. Odorous house ant nests are almost always located outdoors. These tiny insects will travel great distances indoors to find food and water for the colony. A treatment will then be applied to the ant colony’s trails.
