Ants (pavement ants, house ants, little ants)- Many different species of ants populate this area and these insects can make home owners extremely frustrated because of the size of the populations that feed, forage /trail and harbor around home sites. Landscaping materials such as mulch, stones and wood members create ideal harborage points for many species of ants. Unbeknownst to many homeowners and landscapers many plants need and attract these ants closer to the home. Moisture points in and around homes will create an ideal site for ants to nest. These populations can grow very rapidly so let our trained professionals control the ant populations in and around your home quickly and effectively without putting you, your home or your family at risk.
Carpenter Ants Service
Carpenter ants are the most frequently disturbing pests for property owners in the mid-west. Unlike termites, they do not ingest wood and quickly compromise the structure . However, they are attracted to damp moist areas and can be found in window areas, near leaks in roofs, or even under a kitchen dishwasher. They tunnel out wood leaving signs of their presence with small piles of fine sawdust or fras. Major nests are usually found outside the structure and can have thousands of ants in one nest. Satellite nests are found in and around a home or building and once disturbed can be easily moved.
Property owners become alarmed when they see carpenter ants often dark in color and ¼ to ¾ of an inch long fearing a major problem. A trained Critter Ridders Pest Control technician knows where and how to locate and eradicate nests which will eliminate the problem. It is important to note that moisture, wooded areas, and general climate conditions found the in the mid-west are ideal for carpenter ants. Eliminating a current problem does not mean carpenter ants will not reoccur at a later date.
An ongoing program with Critter Ridders is a perfect way to have peace of mind knowing that if carpenter ants should find their way into your home, regularly scheduled visits will insure that any problem will be addressed and eliminated. Critter Ridders is dedicated to providing prompt thorough service.
