Ant Control

Ants love to create power in numbers and can cause a lot of damage to your property, garden and health. Our experience helps us identify and take the right steps to remove them. 

Have Ants Taken Over Your Phoenix-area home?

Ants in the kitchen are not only unsightly and embarrassing, but they’re also able to spread disease and cause real damage to your property. Because ants breed rapidly in large colonies, pest control is the best way to keep them from harming your loved ones. Although most ants are just considered a common nuisance, some species can bite or sting. Others try their hardest to contaminate food in your home.

Ants are notorious breeders who enjoy rapid breeding and prefer to live in large colonies.  Due to their ability to reproduce rapidly, you will need experts who can carry our regular maintenance to ensure the proper treatment at your premises. 

Not many people would think that ants can spread diseases and infections.  We tend to associate disease with insects like flies!  These critters love hiding away on lawns and areas where they can’t be seen.  Ants can step into feces and garbage and create an atmosphere and opportunity for disease.  There’s also something to be said about power in numbers – ants can kill smaller animals and eat their way through your building’s insulation and fabric when in a large group.  Ant removal is a must for anyone who wants to keep their commercial property or residence infestation free.
