How Do Ants Operate? What Ant Treatments Does Southern Pest Solutions Have?
There are so many ant species; it's a wonder insect scientists can keep up with them all. Colonies can have thousands of members. Each is a threat because these bugs crawl around with bacterial cells on their skin. They are known to generate E. coli and salmonella. Several subtypes bring additional dangers, such as attacking wood or stinging people. The critters vary in size and color, but they are well under an inch long and brown or black. When Southern Pest Solutions intervenes, this is what you'll have at your disposal:
- Ant inspection: Our experienced professionals will carefully look over every nook and corner, both indoors and outdoors, including mulched areas, carpet edges, foundational walls, and doorways. Crawl spaces, in particular, have to get special attention because ants will head there during or following a storm. Unfortunately, some pest companies neglect to examine such zones. We will make sure that ant species and their hubs are properly identified in order to develop the best approach plan. You'll be a part of the decision-making process every step of the way.
- Interior ant treatment: Tons of folks are unaware that ants can be resistant to or detect retail pesticides and similar products. In a multitude of cases, these products cause them to spread their nests out even wider. Our fast-acting avenues are effective because they contain non-repellent chemicals that they won't notice. Further, we will place ants baits near trails. When they travel with and share the material, it will kill them and their colony's queen. You'll commonly find ants in kitchens, bathrooms, utilities, and paneling.

No Southern Pest Solutions visit is complete without surveying or addressing the yard and your structural quality. Our team can close up entry points and gaps in foundations, doors, and windows with caulk if needed. Then, we will apply a non-repellent insecticide to the perimeter of your land.

Frequently Asked Questions
How did I get ants?
Ants invade homes looking for food, water, and or safety. Heavy rain, fluctuating weather patterns, and other natural factors also force ants into our homes in an effort to protect their colony. So if you leave dirty dishes in the sink, food residue on your counters, or crumbs on the floor, you’re essentially inviting meal-seeking ants into your home. This becomes a problem when those ants set up their nests in your walls, on your lawn, and around your home’s foundation.
How serious are ants?
Ant infestations are a pretty big deal. One of the biggest problems related to ants is food contamination. Ants carry bacteria on their bodies, which spreads when they crawl in your sink and across your countertops. Now, only a few ant species carry insect-borne diseases, but finding any ants in your home is an unpleasant surprise. Worse, many ant species spread and multiply rapidly due to stress factors beyond our control. Eliminating ants quickly is important for these reasons.
