Ant Elimination in Rancho Cucamonga

Once ants find a way into your home, they can be quite difficult to eradicate. Right behind every ant, is another one coming in to get into your food. While ants do not present a health risk to you or your family, having insects streaming into your home is never what you want. Eliminating the ant problem quickly will help prevent it from turning into a full ant infestation in your Rancho Cucamonga home.

Making sure your home is safe

While most ants are coming in to find a few crumbs under the table or something sweet in the pantry, there are ants that can cause harm to your home. Carpenter ants will actually nest in the wooden frame of your house, which can seriously compromise the structure. A few ways to identify if you have carpenter ants in your home are:

  • They are larger than typical ants found in your kitchen
  • They are sometimes solid black, dark brown, or red. They can also have a black head and thorax with a red or dark brown abdomen
  • They live in walls near a water source like in the kitchen or bathroom
  • If you find piles of wood shavings or sawdust, you may have found where carpenter ants push out the wood they excavate from their tunnels

Do not confuse ants with termites

  • Termites also leave piles of sawdust behind but it will look differently. It is called frass because it is actually the droppings from termites.
  • Termites have straight antennae, not elbowed or bent antennae like an ant’s.
  • You will not see the termites unless the swarmers, termites with wings, come out to find a new place to nest. They will suddenly pour out of the walls and you are sure to notice them.

Eliminating ants

If you see a line of marching insects in your home, give a professional pest control service a call. You will have the peace of mind knowing that a trained professional will quickly identify the insect and begin treatment. For most ants, trusted pest control technicians will apply the best treatment for the job around your Rancho Cucamonga home, effectively taking care of the problem inside.

Then the thorough pest control service will inspect the outside  perimeter of your house. They are looking for ant mounds or nests where the problem is coming from. When an ant mound is identified, the technician will then treat the nests so the ants will not be back any time soon.
