Ant Extermination in Elgin, Lexington Columbia SC
Ant Pest Control in Columbia, SC
Columbia Certified Pest Control is familiar with the different types of ants you may run into in your home or business in Columbia, South Carolina. We have 5 main species of ants that you may find in your home:
- Fire Ants: While they are mainly ground nesting ants, they are known to be attracted to electricity and may be found near electrical outlets, junction boxes, and air conditioners. The bite of a fire ant can be very painful and fire ants should be taken seriously because they can cause harm to individuals.
- Carpenter Ants: Sometimes Carpenter Ants are confused with termites, though they are very different. Carpenter Ants will hollow out areas in wood for nesting and/or egg laying. Most of the time, these ants will start burrowing in decayed wood and they will work their way into the healthy wood. Over time they can cause substantial damage to your home.
- Pharaoh Ants: Pharoah Ants tend to have large colonies and can be found proliferating in empty spaces (like walls) in homes.
- House Ants: Like their name implies, these are the most common ants you might find in your home.
- Odorous House Ants: These ants are very similar to regular house ants, except when you crush them, they release an unpleasant odor.
While some of these ants might pose a more serious threat to your family or home, having ants invading any part of your house is not a pleasant experience. Our expert pest control specialists are on call for you on demand and we also offer extermination packages to give your home year round protection from ants in Columbia, SC.
What Should You Do If You Have An Ant Problem In Columbia, SC
Ants can breed quickly, which means if you notice an infestation, there may already be a pretty large ant colony that you haven’t seen yet. Many store bought ant control treatments get rid of the ants from a certain area, but don’t get rid of the nest. If you’ve tried retail solutions and haven’t had much luck, a professional extermination or pest control company, can be your best bet of ridding your home of ants once and for all. As with all of our services, at Columbia Certified Pest Control, we make sure that when we come out we inspect all of the areas that ants might be breeding or nesting in your home. We then identify which species of ants you have living with you.
After we’ve identified the types of ants that we need to target, our pest control experts will use ant extermination strategies that have been developed specifically for Columbia, SC and surrounding areas. We will not only get rid of the pests from the areas you see them, but we will destroy their nests so they don’t return. Because of how quickly ants can breed and the number of colonies they may have, if we don’t get rid of them all on the first visit, let us know and we’ll return to finish the job.
