Ants

Ants are a fact of life. They’re everywhere. These tiny invaders are programmed to survive. They have scouts that communicate with their colonies to zero in on food, water and nesting locations in your home and yard. Whether you just spot a few or teeming swarms are covering your kitchen counters, you can be sure there are thousands more of them. Bug Ivey can find their nesting places and stop the invasion in its tracks.

About Ants

Ants are tiny and mighty creatures. There are 10,000+ species and they outnumber humans one-million-to-one. Colonies can contain 5 million ants! If your home or yard is infested, these pests can make your life miserable and do a great deal of damage. Some types of ants bite, others can turn wood beams to dust or spread food-borne diseases in your kitchen.

You need professional help to find their nesting places. Bug Ivey can get the job done.

Treatment Information

Ant Treatment Information

Ant infestations can be extremely difficult to manage without professional help. Knowing what species of ant you are dealing with and where they are nesting is the key to eliminating this household intruder. Your technician will inspect your home and exterior for suspected ant activity, and provide you with a custom plan to eliminate them. Most treatments involve a 2-step plan.

  • Treatment 1:Ant colonies consist mainly of adult workers and offspring. The ants you see in your home are taking food back to the colony to feed the colony. The first step is to bait the areas of activity and do localized spraying. This allows the bait to travel back to the nest to start eliminating the colony.
  • Treatment 2:Your technician will return 7-14 days later and perform an exterior foundation treatment to your home. This allows us to eliminate older worker ants and provide your house with protection from any ants trying to invade in the future. After your treatment has been completed, we will guarantee your home free from ants for 60 days, from the date of your second treatment. If you have any issues during your warranty period, just let us know and we will send a technician at no cost to you.
