Ant Pest Control
Whether you own a home or rent, at some point in time you've likely had an experience with ants. Store bought ant control products just cover up the immediate problem and don't target the nest of the problem.
There are only about 25 species of ants in the United Sates that actually infest our homes. It's a small number relative to the 700 plus species of ants that are found in the US. Ants prefer sweets, but will eat almost any food they can find. Social insects, ants live in colonies that are usually built underground. These colonies are made up of hundreds of worker ants but only one queen. Some of the ants found in homes in Spring Hill are: crazy ants, ghost ants (which people call sugar ants but aren't really sugar ants) acrobat ants, fire ants, and carpenter ants. Whichever type of ant is invading your home, Pest Control of Spring Hill can eliminate your problem.
We offer ant control methods that we target to specifically to each species of ant. We are experienced in exterminating all types of ants. Below are just a few examples.
Among the largest ant species, Carpenter ants are also one of the most challenging to control. They spread quickly and travel through your homes structural features. We will seek out and find the nest, and satellite colonies. We will then apply perimeter treatments, as well as barrier and nest treatments.
Our technician will track these tiny insects to their nest, which is usually found outside of the home, and quite a distance from where they are found foraging for food and water. The pest control technician will then treat the trail and nest. A follow up appointment will be scheduled to ensure the ants do not establish any new trails after the first treatment.
Since they were first introduced to the United States, the fire ant has been a nuisance to homeowners in Florida. This species of ant is know for it's burning sting, hence the name fire ants.This species of ant builds large mounds on top of the ground. If you disturb a mound , a mass exodus of fire ants will exit the mound and start stinging any one or anything in the vicinity.
Fire ants must be treated near the mound. The fire ants will eat the bait and bring it into the colony. Once the queen consumes the bait, she will die and the colony will soon collapse. Treating fire ants early in the Spring will keep the likelihood of a mass infestation to a minimum.
There are two common fire ant species found in Florida. They are the red imported fire and and the tropical fire ant. We've all experienced or know someone who has experienced the burning sting from Fire Ants. Fire Ants are a very common problem in Florida.
