They’re known for more than just letting themselves into your home whenever they feel is necessary. They carry bacteria, transmit disease, damage gardens and lawns. They can even severely damage the structural integrity of you home or office building depending on the type of ant finds its way in.
Nevada is home to more than 7 different types of ants, including: Stinging Southern Fire Ants, California Harvester Ants, Velvety Tree Ants, Argentine Ants, Odorous House Ants, Pavement Ants, Black Harvester Ants, and Carpenter Ants. Knowing the difference is not an easy feat. Most ants are harmless, but that’s also where pest control companies like us come in. Depending on the type of ant, treatments vary.
When deciding on whether to treat an ant problem on your own with store bought pesticide, or calling an exterminator, we want all of you reading this to consider this: Like many home pest control products, most of what is sold for ants does not work. In many cases, what you buy off the rack at a store and apply yourself makes the situation worse. Ants have an extremely keen sense of smell, can detect poisons you may spray, and are so intelligent that they will avoid them at first whiff. That always causes them to find new entry points into your home.
The most effective way to rid your home or business of an ant problem is to call a professional exterminator. Here at Ace Pest Control, we have a treatment plan that includes killing ants and then providing a proven barrier treatment to prevent them from entering ever again.
Another thing to consider would be, if you signed up for our bi-monthly treatment plan. It is $65 every two months instead of $40 per month. In all reality, you only really need a bi-monthly service. If you’re paying for a monthly spray, we believe that you are being over charged. For more information on our treatment plans for any type of bug or rodent, give the office a call! We look forward to working with you to rid your home or office of the nuisances themselves.
