You can feel confident in our ability to provide ant control at your home or business.

Although ants are generally more bothersome than dangerous, they’re still not welcome in most homes. Different types of ants live in the area, including carpenter ants and small black ants. Carpenter ants are more concerning than other types because they make their nests in wood and can cause structural damage. However, any type of pest in the home is never an appealing sight since where you see one ant, there are likely more hidden in other areas. It’s important to get rid of the entire colony, rather than spot-treating with sprays and traps.

FAQs About Ant Control

At Quality Control, Inc., we don’t believe our only responsibility is to offer excellent pest control services, including ant control. We feel strongly that we should also be a valuable source of information that can aid you in having a pest-free environment in which to live. That’s why we always welcome questions about ant control and our other pest control services, as well as about the pests themselves. Here are two common questions we’ve been asked in the past about ants:

I’ve been squashing the ants and I keep getting more and more! Why?
Ants are quite clever in that they leave a scent trail everywhere they go so that other ants from their colony can have a path to the discovered food source. You squash one, but others take its place. In addition, if you kill enough of them, the queen ant is alerted by the mass loss and hatches several more as a defense mechanism. Hence, there could be even more headed your way. That’s why professional ant control focuses on killing the entire colony, including the queen, as well as cleaning up the scent trails and pointing out access points that need to be sealed.
What attracts ants in the first place?
Ants are attracted by a number of things, including food scraps (particularly sweets), a water source, and the moisture of potted plants. If you notice a huge number all of sudden, it could be they were driven inside because of the use of pesticides outside or because your landscaping has overgrown, allowing them to travel directly from it to your home.
