spire Pest Control’s Ant Exterminator Service

Do you have an ant problem? These pests are one of the most common problems plaguing homeowners and can be difficult to get rid of. As they live in colonies of hundreds or thousands, our Spire Pest Control technicians know that any ant spotting could be sign of an infestation. Read below to find out if you have an infestation, and what you can do about it.

If you have large ants with pincers in or around your home, you may have a carpenter ant problem. If that is the case, our carpenter ant page is a great place to start.

Signs of an Ant Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have an ant problem. Here are a couple of the most common signs of an ant infestation. 

Large Mounds in the Yard

They can be bare dirt or sand, or they can be covered in growing, healthy grass.

Ant Trails

Ants will travel long distances for food. Ant trails may disappear after the food source is gone.

Piles of ants

in grass, sand, or even cracks in brick or cement

What You Need to Know About Ants

  • Ants come in a large variety. The most common kinds of ants you’ll see around your home are:
    • Sugar ants
    • Ghost ants
    • Odorous house ants 
    • Carpenter ants
  • Ants find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping. Once inside, they hunt for food and moisture. That’s why you’ll see them most often in your kitchen and bathroom. 
  • While most of these ants are harmless, carpenter ant infestations can pose a serious threat to your property, because they tunnel their way through wood, causing damage to your home. 
  • Ant Behavior is a fascinating, complicated subject. They are social creatures that work together to gather food and care for their young. There are several kinds of ants in each colony. Queens have wings that allow them to fly and start a new colony. Once there they rip off their wings and mate, and begin raising their first working ants. They spend the rest of their lives laying eggs to build the colony.
  • Workers are females who are wingless and do not reproduce. Their job is to build the nest, gather food and take care of the young. Males have wings that allow them to find a queen to mate with. They mate and die, doing very little work in their lives. If a colony lives in your home they can be quite disruptive and should be exterminated quickly.

Helpful Ant Prevention Tips 

  • Move wood or low-hanging tree branches away from your house. 
  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.

Ant Infestation Control FAQ

How do I get rid of ant infestations? Can I get rid of ants by myself?

The best way to get rid of ants permanently is with professional pest control and ant extermination because we have all the right tools and knowledge. While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything ants can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.

Why do ants keep coming back?

You must control ants because they can create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Spire Pest Control has the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively provide ant control near you.

What problems do carpenter ants cause? 

Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve tunnels in wood. Although they don’t eat the wood as termites do, if you don’t get help with carpenter ant treatment they can cause serious damage to your home if left untreated.

Which ants are the most dangerous?

Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp. You need to control fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants - they are among those stinging ants that live in the United States.

Carpenter ants. You must exterminate carpenter ants because they can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.

Are ants poisonous?

Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings.

What is the difference between a regular ant and a carpenter ant?

The main difference is the size. While most ants are about ⅛ inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to ½ inch, about four times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.
