Remove Tiny Pests with Professional Ant Control in Arizona
Has an army of ants invaded your home? If so, the best course of action to eliminate an infestation is to contact a professional pest control exterminator immediately. Many homeowners use their own methods to rid their home of the ants they find, but the ants return time and time again. This is because the main body of ants often travel to and from their colony, which could be anywhere inside or outside of the home. Scouts are sent by the queen ant to look for food. Once food is found, hundreds and even thousands of ants travel the trail left by the scouts to locate the food. Simply trying to eliminate the ants you see in your home will not solve the problem.
A professional pest control exterminator will diligently locate the main source (colony) and apply the latest treatments to eliminate the nest. Nests outside of the home can be found in trees, tree stumps, fences, and in the ground. Professional pest control extermination inside the home includes treatments that will not harm family members or pets. Ongoing prevention is recommended by an exterminating company to prevent future infestation.
Carpenter ants and fire ants in Phoenix, Mesa, and Tucson are the most common species that invade homes. Carpenter ants can be just as damaging as termites by burrowing in the wood structure of a home and making nests in the wood. Fire ants bite and can be very harmful and even fatal to those who are allergic to insect bites. If you suspect a problem, calling an exterminator will save you the cost of expensive repairs or medical bills.
In addition to damaging the wood framing of homes, ants can also build nests in walls, doors, cracks, basements, foundations, crawl spaces, bricks, eaves, and decks. These tiny pests also follow wiring and plumbing to infiltrate all areas of your home. Even furniture can be infested and damaged. Tunnels constructed by ants outside the home cause damage by uprooting and cracking sidewalks, driveways, and patios as the ground beneath collapses. The application of the latest insect control technology by a qualified exterminating company allows families to safely enjoy activities inside the home and outside in the yard.
Ants in AZ also cause health risks by contaminating food. Disease and bacteria can be transmitted through their bites and the trails they leave for other ants to follow. A swarm of ants scouting for food will be drawn no matter how clean the surrounding area. Foods left on tidy countertops in the kitchen can attract ants in minutes. Even favorite drinks cannot be left unattended inside or outside of the home. A trained exterminator has the knowledge to completely and efficiently eliminate ants and restore comfort and cleanliness to your residence.
