Eliminating Infestations for Homes & Businesses in Richland County and Surrounding Areas
When you notice an ant, even one, in your kitchen or bathroom, it’s only a matter of time before thousands may follow. Ants are social creatures that live in colonies that can contain tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of ants. When they catch scent of a potential food source, workers swarm to bring it back to the colony. That means in less than a few hours, your home or business could contain thousands of these tiny creatures.

Controlling All Types of Ants
There are thousands of different species of ant, and each has its own unique characteristics and tendencies. While some ants tend to live in smaller colonies, others can be found in much larger numbers. Some ants are notoriously aggressive while others are generally more mild-mannered and tend to ignore humans.
Our team can handle all types of ant problems common to our area, including:
- Pavement Ants: Pavement ants get their name from the fact that they are commonly seen emerging from cracks in pavement and concrete. They are small and are all the same size. These types of ants are not notoriously aggressive but do invade homes in search of food, bringing with them debris that they deposit along baseboards and windowsills. We take care of these nuisances by applying a gel bait inside your property and setting up a perimeter outside of it.
- Carpenter Ants: Carpenter ants are notorious for their ability to destroy wood. In fact, carpenter ants actually cause more damage than termites. While their primary role in nature is to decompose tree stumps or logs on the forest floor, they tend to do the same with houses. They live in concealed nests, so it is important that our technicians apply a full interior and exterior treatment plan to your baseboards, moisture-prone areas, foundation, decks, trees, and more.
- Pharaoh Ants: Pharaoh ants are about 2 mm in length and are a translucent yellow or light brown color. They are a very common indoor nuisance for property owners across the globe. Because colonies can contain multiple queens that lay hundreds of eggs over the course of their lifetime, they are a prolific species, with larger colonies branching off to create new nests in other parts of your property. As with other types of ants, we will apply a comprehensive indoor and outdoor plan to help prevent and control infestations. It is also important to eliminate food sources by storing shelf-stable foods in tight sealing containers and promptly putting away any leftovers.
