Homes everywhere are being invaded by ants. Once pristine kitchens are now being viewed by homeowners as untidy because ants are appearing in and around the sink area or crawling across their immaculate floors.
The ant most common in our area is the Odorous House Ant. This ant has multiple queens and can develop sub colonies in the walls and underneath cabinets. This particular ant can become quite a nuisance as the colony grows and splits.
Another ant which can invade your home destroys wood...the Carpenter Ant seeks out wood that has been weakened by moisture so that they can excavate a gallery for their home. An indicator that they have invaded your home is evidence of sawdust and debris that is kicked out of the gallery.
Getting rid of ants is no easy task for the home owner
Items purchased over the counter may not eliminate the problem as quickly as the homeowner wishes. Ant control is best left to the professionals.
At PermaTreat our technicians are trained to inspect all possible points of entry, track down the colonies and apply the proper materials to quickly eliminate the infestation. Routine follow-up treatments ensures that your property remains ant-free.
Here are some tips to help reduce the draw of ants to your home:
- Keep bushes and trees trimmed back from the house
- Keep mulch beds 2 - 3 feet away from the foundation
- Keep sprinkler heads pointed away from the foundation
- Ensure water flows away from the house
