Ant Pest Control
Spending time outside is fun, but ants can interrupt any outdoor activity – not just your picnic. And it’s even worse when they come inside. Once ants have invaded, they can be very difficult to kill completely. Ants colonize in a variety of places, and there are several species in Arkansas and Oklahoma. West Termite, Pest & Lawn is experienced with ant pest control and offers several remedies to get rid of all types of ants.
The West Termite, Pest & Lawn Process
Step 1: Inspection
One of our licensed exterminators will take a look to determine the level of infestation and the kinds of ants present. Then, we will create a customized plan to remove any established colonies and prevent future infestations from taking hold. While the extermination plan for your specific home or business may vary, these steps are typically part of our process.
Step 2: Secure the Perimeter
During our assessment, we will identify any areas of your home or business that need to be secured. Then, we will create barriers to prevent ants from coming inside. This can include caulking to seal doorways, thresholds, windows, and trim.
Step 3: Remove Food Sources
Step 4: Remove Indoor Ants
We strategically place the right kind of ant traps and/or baits to kill the ants inside your home or business. Depending on the species of ants infesting your home, we may use sugar-based or protein-based ant baits. Different baits attract different kinds of ants. Baits may be gels or granules laid out directly or housed inside station-style traps.
Step 5: Locate and Exterminate the Colony
The technician will follow the ants back to their colony and treat it directly with repellent. These steps and ant remedies, along with regularly scheduled inspections to maintain and provide follow-up treatments as needed, will work together to prevent future infestations.
