Expert Pest Control Ants In Springfield MO
March 11, 2022
Are you searching “pest control ants” in Springfield MO and the surrounding areas due to an infestation? Look for Expert Pest Solutions, where we offer services to control ants and most other common household pests. As the weather warms up, ants will become more active. This can lead to problems if they decide to make YOUR home, THEIR home.
Ants are some of the most fascinating creatures in nature. There are over 450 species of ants in North America, and many others all around the world. They range in size from the tiny, harmless black sugar ants to large, painfully-stinging fire ants. Fortunately, only fifty species are known to invade homes, and of those, only ten are found in Missouri. Ants are social insects that can build large, complex colonies. Though ant colonies can be interesting and impressive to study, finding them throwing a party on your kitchen counters late at night means you need an exterminator from Expert Pest Solutions to pest control ants.
Ants can become a problem due to their building habits and their eating habits. According to the University of Missouri Extension Service, “In human environments, they build nests in soil, open lawns, under concrete slabs, stones or boards, adjacent to foundation walls, in the walls of houses, in decaying wood, or in cavity spaces associated with debris.” This means your home is a perfect place for ants to make a colony.
Ants are also omnivores – they will eat just about anything. It’s no wonder they are so busy seeking food, considering that their colonies contain thousands of larvae, workers, males, and the queen. That’s a lot of mouths to feed! Unfortunately for us, they can also communicate the location of food among themselves. When an ant finds that chocolate cake you left on the counter overnight, he will go back to the colony, leaving a chemical trail for other ants to follow so they can join the feast. You’ll soon be searching “pest control ants” on your computer, hoping to find a solution. We can help!
You may think hiring an exterminator for an ant problem is overkill. While it’s true that there are many ant-control products available at your local discount store, they are no match for professional service. Why should you hire a professional?
Knowledge: The team at Expert Pest Solutions is trained to understand pest behaviors. They know where to look for ants, how to find their nests and how to treat and eliminate the problem.
Safety: Our exterminators use only approved products and know how to apply them safely. If you have kids or pets in your home, it pays to go with a professional. That way you can be sure the job is done safely and correctly.
Convenience: It’s a lot of work to locate the source of a pest problem, and sometimes it involves going into parts of your home that you don’t want to visit – like the cellar, attic or crawl space. Our teams go wherever they need to in order to find the source of your pest control ants, and they don’t mind getting cobwebs in their hair!
Guaranteed results: Those over-the-counter products don’t come with a guarantee. If they don’t work, that’s money wasted. Our one-time service plan for ants comes with a 60 day guarantee. Our quarterly service plan includes additional visits if pests recur between scheduled treatments.
In addition to our one-time and quarterly service plans, we offer specialty services for pests like termites and brown recluse spiders.
