Ants Are Moving In

Ant Control in Houston

Ant Control - More Than a Shoe Required!

As ant experts, we notice interesting things about ants.

For instance, they are no respecter of property — they invade homes of all sides equally, and they infest every neighborhood in Houston.  They are so common a problem that nationwide they are the #1 pest listed in Gallup polls.

And ants rank #1 as the biggest pest overall in Houston, TX as well. You can be sure that every day, ants are either invading your home or trying to.

The first ants that march into a home are the “scouts” looking for food, water, or a nesting place. Once they find what they are looking for, they go back  to their colony, laying down a scent trail as they go so other ants  can more quickly find their way.

Depending on the species of ant, they may prefer sweets, or proteins like meat and grease. Some ants eat both, and they may switch their food preferences — one day they may be attracted to sweets, and another day they may ignore sweets and go after proteins.

Whenever possible, refuse to provide ants food and water. Clean up crumbs, grease, and liquid spills. Occasionally rinse out your kitchen garbage container, even if you use garbage bags. Place open food in sealed containers.

Some ant species would like to move their entire colony indoors, they may nest in the oddest places. but favorite areas are behind walls and baseboards, beneath floors, in the soil of potted plants, and in other hidden areas.

Some ant species are more than just pests  — some can bite or sting and others like carpenter ants can chew wood to carve out a nest damaging your home in the process.

As the Houston area ant experts, we effectively control these common and persistent invaders. If you know someone who suffers from these pests, please tell them about our professional and courteous services!
