Professional pest control can not only help you eliminate the ant infestation at your property but make your space better secured from future infestation risks. As a team of expert pest technicians, we identify all the ant colonies in and around our customers’ properties to give them comprehensive pest management solutions. We will also identify the reasons for ant infestation and complete soil treatment to minimise future infestation risks if required. At Tom’s Pest Control, we have advanced, targeted ant control methods to eliminate the pest from your environment with minimal impact to it.
We are committed to offering high-value pest control services at competitive rates to our customers. Therefore, we consider the extent of the infestation and the property type to finalise the cost of our ant control services. For instance, if the ant infestation is specific to a particular area of your property, the effort is less, and the cost of pest control will be cheaper. On the other hand, if your property has extensive ant infestation with ant colonies in different areas of it, we may want to complete comprehensive ant control. Therefore, the cost goes up. You can expect the cost of ant control between $150-$400.
You have a number of ways to get rid of ants from your property overnight. Using vinegar spray – half vinegar and half water – in the ant colonies and infested areas is a hassle-free way to kill ants. You can also use lemon juice mixed with water to eliminate the pest from your environment naturally.
You can also prepare a natural, powerful ant control solution with the following:
- 1½ tablespoons of borax
- ½ cup of sugar
- 1½ cups of warm water
Mix borax and sugar in the water and make them completely dissolved. Soak some cotton balls with the solution and put them in the areas where you see ant infestation. You must see overnight ant control results.
You can decide on calling a professional exterminator based on the infestation level at your property. If you notice that the infestation is not widespread, you can try to get rid of ants from your property with some do-it-yourself options. However, if you notice your ant control attempts do not give the desired results, hire a professional ant control specialist to make your space pest-free. Also, if your property has complex ant infestation issues, you must get professional pest control to eliminate all the ant colonies and create an ant barrier around your space.
In most cases, you would see ants or ant paths on your property to confirm the presence of the pest. You can also check in the areas where you store food packets. If you see any ant path, you can follow it to see the colony complete the extermination. Be precautious to ant bites as some ants are venomous.
You may hear rustling sounds at night from the wooden structures of your property if carpenter ants infest your property. Additionally, you can check wood shavings on the floor to confirm the presence of the ant species. Carpenter ants prefer to stay in damp areas. Therefore, you also can check your bathroom and kitchen for the presence of pest infestation.
At Tom’s Pest Control, we provide customised, targeted, and comprehensive pest control solutions to address the infestation as well the reasons for the infestation. You will start seeing results immediately after our treatment, and your property will be free of ants in a few days based on the ant infestation.
Some ant colonies are very large, and eliminating them is often a tricky job. An ant colony should be killed up to the queen to ensure the complete extermination of the pest. After completing the extermination procedure, it may take a few days to reach the entire colony, including the queen, for the complete extermination.
In many regards, hiring an exterminator is a great decision to safeguard your environment from ants. A significant number of pest ants found in properties are venomous, and you should be careful enough while exterminating them. Also, various pest ants have different characteristics and way of forming colonies.
A professional exterminator can expertly locate all the ant colonies in and around your property and eliminate them through targeted pest control. If your property has regular ant infestation issues, the exterminator can create an ant barrier around your property through soil treatments. In every regard, getting an exterminator helps you address the infestation comprehensively.
