Ants - Formicidae
They are skinny insects. Like their relatives the wasps, they have a narrow connection between their abdomen and thorax. They have chewing mouthparts, and their antennae are bent in the middle. Some ants are very tiny (1-2mm long), but some tropical species are very large (30 mm).
How To Choose An Ant Control Service
What to look for when choosing an ant pest control professional:
- The pest management company should be licensed by the state and insured.
- Technicians should be certified pest management professionals and fully licensed in the state.
- The company should be a member of a professional organization, such as the National Pest Management Association.
- The company should have a staff entomologist or access to one.
- Technicians should have experience with ants.
- Choose a company based on their quality of service, not the price. Research user reviews and testimonials to solidify your choice.
- A pre-inspection should be conducted to assess the scope of the work.
- The proposed work should follow the steps of integrated pest management, not just pesticide application.

ASK THE EXTERMINATOR:
Will the gel bait your applying stain or mark my flooring/carpeting?
There is coloring to the gel bait to draw the ants to the bait. This bait can be removed from your flooring by merely using soap and warm water.
Please do not remove our material until a pest professional gives you the approval to do so.
Why do I see just as many ants in the winter as I do in the summer?
Often your dwelling may have a concrete slab in direct contact with soil. In this situation, during the winter, ants will make their way through the porous concrete to the closest source of warmth, your dwelling. This will make the winter season seem just as bad as the summer, especially during a colder winter.
How does the gel bait work? Won’t this eliminate the ants after feeding?
Baiting is a more involved and effective solution than spraying when treated correctly. The process itself does take longer but has more significant results. The gel bait is taken from foraging ants back to the colony, where this bait is then regurgitated and passed on to other ants within the colony. One feeding from our bait can eliminate up to 100 ants, whereas a spray product usually only eliminates what people see.
