Ant Control

If you're not vigilant about pests, it can be easy to let ant control fall by the wayside, but as we'll see below, the consequences for ignoring ant infestations can be severe. 

Common Ants In Our Area

We've got plenty of ants in the Lewisville, Denton, North Texas area to go around. Some of these ants, like fire ants and carpenter ants, can cause severe problems, while others are more of a nuisance.

Common ant species you may run across in your home include:

  • Carpenter ants: often large and black, these destructive pests tunnel through wood, potentially causing structural damage. Identifying their presence through sawdust-like debris or rustling sounds in walls is crucial for timely intervention to protect your property.
  • Fire ants: known for their reddish-brown color and painful stings, are aggressive insects that form large colonies. Their presence can pose serious threats, including painful bites and allergic reactions. 
  • Pharaoh ants: small and light brown, are notorious for their ability to infest various indoor spaces, including hospitals and homes. Their resilience to many conventional treatments makes professional pest control vital. 
  • Odorous house ants: small and brown-black, emit a distinct, unpleasant odor when crushed, resembling rotting coconuts or musty smells. They often invade homes in search of food and moisture, nesting near crevices and wall voids. 
  • Crazy ants: named for their erratic, unpredictable movements, are reddish-brown pests that infest indoor and outdoor areas. They create massive colonies and are difficult to control due to their resilience and varied diet.
  • Pavement ants: small and dark brown, are common outdoor pests, often found nesting beneath sidewalks and driveways. They may invade homes in search of food, particularly sweet and greasy substances.

When you're looking at ant pest control in North Texasit's important to focus on all ants, but fire ants, carpenter ants, and pharaoh ants are particularly vital to keep away. Fire ants swarm and sting, carpenter ants can damage wooden structures, and pharaoh ants spread dangerous bacterial diseases. That means these three species are more than a nuisance. They can become a threat to either your property or your health.

Ant-Free Living Is Just A Click Or Call Away

If you wind up with an ant infestation despite your best efforts, don't put your faith in ineffective and potentially dangerous ant control products that you can buy from a store. These products typically do little more than kill enough of the ant colony to make them move their nest a few feet away from its original spot. Then, they just breed the next generation and come back in full force.

The only way to truly eliminate the entire ant colony from your property is to trust the residential and commercial pest control experts here at Adams Exterminating Company. Our ant experts know how to safely and effectively eliminate the heart of the colony – the queen – so it cannot just bounce back after a few weeks. So if you're ready for an ant-free life, give us a call or visit our contact page to get started.
