When to Call an Ant Exterminator

Serving Las Vegas | Henderson | North Las Vegas

Colony of ants in home. Pest Control Inc. serving Las Vegas NV talks about when to call an ant exterminator.

Ants are the number one nuisance pest in the United States and because they’re highly resilient, they’re often very difficult to get rid of. If you’re dealing with repeated ant infestations or a rapidly growing colony, it may be time to contact the professionals. When pests keep returning, it’s a sign the methods you’ve been trying aren’t working. Licensed pest control technicians, like us at Pest Control Inc. are your best bet. Because we understand ant behaviors and habits, we’ll be able to locate the source and eliminate the problem for good.

How to Stop Ants from Spreading

Prevention is key when it comes to pests, especially ants. But if you already have an infestation, there are some steps you can take to help stop them from spreading. First, if you see an ant in your home, kill it. Ants secrete pheromones as a way of telling others where food sources are or when there is danger. By killing the ant, its nestmates will be alerted to the danger. Another way of helping stop ants from spreading is by removing attractants. Repair sources of standing water, keep a meticulously clean home, dump your trash out regularly, and store your food in airtight containers.

It’s also important to keep in mind while DIY pest control is affordable, the results don’t often last or only appear to work, costing you more time and money in the long run. To effectively remove your ant infestation, only commercial-grade products will work and they’re only to be applied by licensed and qualified professionals, like us at Pest Control Inc.

Eliminating Ant Colonies

Killing entire ant colonies is difficult. In fact, it can sometimes take months before an ant colony is eliminated. When you work with a licensed pest control company, like Pest Control Inc, you may rest assured that our efforts will leave your property ant-free. Below are the steps we take to ensure effective pest control.

  • A thorough inspection of the property inside and outside determining vulnerable areas
  • Pest identification (different ant species have different behaviors and some can even cause structural damage like the carpenter ant)
  • Establish thresholds to determine the intensity and scope of the pest control plan
  • Exclusion techniques such as caulking cracks or installing door sweeps
  • Implementation of ant control products or techniques including ant traps or bait
  • Evaluate for effectiveness
