Whether it’s a single treatment for new colonies or comprehensive, long-term extermination and prevention as part of our pest control plans, we ensure your property is protected.

Why CARPENTER ANTS love your home

Carpenter ants are drawn to certain conditions and resources. Understanding what attracts them to your property can help you prevent infestations. Here’s why these tiny pests might be invading your space:

  • Seeking Food: These ants are attracted to food sources like crumbs, sugary substances, and pet food left out.

  • Shelter: Carpenter ants nest in undisturbed areas such as crawl spaces and inside wooden structures.

  • Moisture: They thrive in damp environments, including areas with standing water and wet wood.

By addressing these common attractants, you can reduce the likelihood of an ant infestation. We back our carpenter ant control with expert advice and effective solutions to help keep your property ant-free.


We’ll arrive at your home or place of business armed and ready to get rid of ants in your space the same day.
