When to Call our Columbia Ant Control Pros
Aside from carpenter ants, most species of ants will not cause significant
property damage. But their huge colonies (with as many as millions of
inhabitants ) and voracious appetites make them a disruptive, and hard
to control, nuisance. To keep ants out of your home, do not hesitate to
call our pest control pros at Modern Exterminating ASAP. Where there is
one ant, there probably aren’t others from the colony far behind,
which is why these pests often just keep coming and coming.
Top signs of an ant infestation include:
- Your food is constantly being swarmed by ants
- You’ve noticed an ant colony outside of your property
- You’ve noticed small piles of dirt (that may be ant nests) in/around
- You can hear rustling noises in your walls or see wood shavings on the floor
- There are ant trails in/around your property
- There are visible ants inside your property
What to Do About Carpenter Ants in Columbia, SC
The first step in carpenter ant control is a thorough inspection in and
around your structure. You’ll want us to inspect all areas that
are conducive to carpenter ants from the ground level to the roof peak.
These ants are most active at night, which is why sometimes an evening
inspection is necessary to locate a difficult carpenter ant problem. However,
the ultimate key to eliminating carpenter ants is locating the colony.
This is often difficult as carpenter ants usually locate their nests inside
wall or ceiling voids where they are hard to get to.
Where carpenter ants trail into a building is not always where the main
colony is located. Carpenter ants sometimes form satellite colonies where
they enter and exit a structure. Satellite colonies are in between the
main colony and food locations or swarming locations. The ants may enter
at a location and then climb through walls and rafters to where the nest
is really located. After the nest or entrance ways have been determined,
the wall or ceiling void may be drilled and treated to eliminate the entire
colony. It is important to do this quickly, however, as carpenter ants
can cause a ton of damage to your property if not dealt with in a timely manner.
