Ant Swarmers

March 1, 2019

Ants are easily one of the biggest issues we deal with every Spring and Summer. They seem to be coming out of the wood work- literally. The different ants we deal with are carpenter ants, harvester ants, and pavement ants are probably number one. Sometimes I think that ants will take over the world.
As a personal and professional pest control company, we have the chemicals and abilities to control and even get rid of ants for the rest of your summer. In the springtime usually you may find that flying ants appear. These are called swarmers. Swarmers' sole purpose in life is to get out, mate and start a new colony. That's literally all they seek to do. So once the Queen has been fertilized. she will start a new colony - sometimes close, sometimes far. However, if we are able to get ahold of the swarmers before they can get to the queen, that is the best way to control them. They are a little more difficult to control but if you call us we can put chemical in place to hopefully prevent swarmers from coming back. The best way to deal with swarmers is to vacuum them up. If you know where they are coming in - the location or entry points, we will come and treat those locations. Remember, as pest control professionals, we always think of your safety first along with your pets' safety but with that in mind, we are still able to handle the issue at hand on a professional level.
