The Warning Signs of an Ant Infestation

The signs of an ant infestation can be subtle, but there are key indicators to watch out for:

  • Live ants: Spotting live ants in your home or business is a pretty blunt sign of a problem. A few ants may not seem like a big issue, but visible ants often mean more are hidden away. If you consistently see ants inside, a nearby colony has likely made itself at home.
  • Ant trails: Ants are known for their remarkable navigation skills, often leaving pheromone trails to food sources. These trails can appear as a line of ants marching back and forth, indicating a well-established colony. If you observe these trails, it's time to take action and call our office. 
  • Ant hills: Ant hills are mounds of soil or dirt that serve as the entrance to an ant colony. These formations in your yard signify a thriving ant population underground.
  • Wood shavings: Carpenter ants don't eat wood but burrow into it to build their nests. This activity often results in piles of wood shavings or a sawdust-like material near wooden structures. 
  • Inspection

    As soon as you contact Protection Termite Control, we’ll set up a time to inspect your property. When we arrive at your home, we’ll first talk with you to find out what problems you’re having and what you’re most concerned about. We’ll then inspect both inside and outside of your house to identify pest activity, entry points, harborage areas, conducive conditions, and more.

  • Treatments

    Our treatments are designed around your home’s specific pest control needs. If interior areas require treatments, we’ll provide them. We’ll then move outdoors to treat around the base of your house, your property line, and your garage. We’ll also set out monitoring glue boards to keep an eye on pest activity. Your initial pest control treatment can typically take place immediately after our inspection.

  • Follow-Up

    Our follow-up services are available on the schedule that works for you. Some homes require more frequent services, while others can be spaced out more. We offer monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly options to meet your needs. Our follow-up exterior and interior reservices are limited to areas of concern and are available on an as-needed basis. Simply request one prior to our service, and we’ll happily comply.

The Risks of an Ant Infestation

While ants are more likely to be an annoyance rather than a real risk, an infestation may still present problems like: 

  • Property damage: The wood burrowing activity of carpenter ants can pose a significant threat to your property. This damage can be costly to repair, making it crucial to address a carpenter ant infestation quickly. 
  • Food contamination: Ants aren't just a nuisance; they can also be a health risk. They roam freely, picking up bacteria and contaminants that can be transferred to your food. This can potentially lead to foodborne illnesses, especially if the infestation is not addressed promptly.
  • Bites or stings: While most ants are harmless, certain species can bite or sting when threatened. These bites and stings can cause pain and, in some cases, allergic reactions. It's important to identify the species involved in an infestation to assess the risk accurately.
