When to Call our 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 Columbia 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 your property
  • 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 Columbia property if not dealt with in a timely manner.
