Spotting a few ants in your kitchen may not be concerning, but chances are your ant problem is worse than you think.

Not only do we customize treatment based on your specific needs, but we also take into account the species of ant that’s present. Each species has its own challenges and requires a different form of treatment, which is why proper identification is so important. The four most common ants you’ll encounter are odorous house, pharaoh, pavement, and carpenter.
These ants emit the smell of rotten coconut when they’re crushed, giving them the name of odorous house ants. They contaminate your food while searching for something to eat, nest deep in wall voids or under floorboards, and also bite, making them especially bothersome. DIY treatments are not only ineffective against odorous house ants but can even make the infestation worse.
Their small size allows pharaoh ants to enter your house through tiny openings, such as gaps between plumbing or electrical wires and your foundation. Pharaoh ants are persistent with large colonies and like to nest in hard-to-reach areas, making them difficult to eliminate on your own. They also carry harmful bacteria that can put you and your loved ones at risk for serious diseases, making professional ant control a necessity.
Pavement ants get their name from where they live, which is primarily in cracks in pavement and sidewalks, under patio stones, and along driveways. They also often make their way inside in search of food, which can lead to an infestation in your kitchen. In addition to crumbs and trash, pet food also attracts pavement ants both inside and outside of your home.
Homes with moisture problems or water damage are more likely to have carpenter ants as they prefer damp or decaying wood. Much like termites, these ants gradually weaken your home’s wooden supports as they create their tunnels. Unlike termites, however, carpenter ants do not eat the wood and leave behind wood shavings.
