Successful Ant Control requires you to play a part.
Did you know… Ants generated more pest control calls across the country than any other pest in 2017.
The top of the list was Odorous House Ants at 20%.
The Argentine Ant was 2nd at 15% and following ever so closely was the Carpenter Ant and the Pavement Ant, both at 14%.
In the South and working their way up, the problem is Fire Ants. Overall they are 10% on the chart.
In Florida, which has absolutely every species of ant, the White-footed Ant is the biggest challenge, though only 2% overall. They are hard to control and often go unnoticed until the colonies get so big. They prefer to nest up high, under eaves, or in attics.
Just remember, when hiring a pest control professional, there are various strategies to controlling ants and you can help with some of that. Sanitation and vacuuming are a part of it.
A pest control technician will treat with baits, gels and pesticide applications. They will also let you know if you have a problem somewhere that requires some exclusion work.
