More About Ants
Ants are a social insect commonly found in our service area. They belong to the Formicidae group and live in large colonies with many other insects. It is estimated that the world is home to 14,000 or more species, but 12,000 have been identified. When you spot an ant, you’ll know it because it has elbowed antennas and unique body structures. They have a narrow waist. Ant colonies are successful because each ant is going to work diligently to serve the colony. Whether they’re searching for food or building tunnels, they’re going to work together.
What Causes Ants?
Ants build large colonies underground with hundreds or thousands of ants living in the same colony. Ants want to be outside, but they will travel a long distance to search for food. In some cases, they’ll travel more than 300 feet to forage for food. It is not unreasonable to think that ants are going to enter your home in the future. If they suspect they can find food in your home, they’ll enter through gaps near door frames, windows, plumbing pipes, and eaves.
Are Ants Dangerous To Humans?
Although ants will create several problems, they’re not dangerous to humans. The biggest problem is that ants will become a nuisance. Also, you have to worry about them damaging your belongings and home. If they contaminate your food, you’ll want to dispose of it for your peace of mind. However, they are not known for transmitting diseases.
How To Get Rid Of Ants
Ant colonies have many nests that are connected. To get rid of them, you must treat all of these nests. As a result, this makes the treatment process more complicated. If you miss a nest during the process, you will likely regret it. The colony will return, reproduce, and continue destroying your property. Our company has a reliable smart ant program designed to tackle this problem. We provide inspections, treatments, and follow-up visits to get rid of the ants for you. Call us to learn more about our services.
Can I Get Rid Of Ants Myself?

However, you have to look at the potential complications of doing it on your own. Although you’ll find several ant removal products, some of them are not effective.

Preventing Ant Infestations At Home
One of the best ways to deal with ants is to keep them out of your home. If you can do that, you won’t need to hire an exterminator. The only problem is that keeping them away won’t be easy. Start by dealing with the cracks, holes, gaps, and cracks around your home. Once you’ve done that, clean your home thoroughly. Deal with crumbs so ants won’t be able to find food in your home.
Why Los Angeles Residents Need Out Ant Control Services
As a resident of the greater Los Angeles area, you don’t need anyone telling you that living in the area is truly unique. It affords one access to amenities and features that they wouldn’t be able to otherwise wouldn’t be able to take advantage of. Of course, this doesn’t mean living in the area doesn’t come without hassles, risks, and headaches because this isn’t the case at all It does, and one of those headaches that you’ll be commonly dealing with is known as the ant. While they are small and appear completely harmless, they can multiply into huge numbers once on your land. Combine this with the fact that they get into your food, home, and leave unwanted bacteria everywhere, it only makes the situation all that much worse.
That being said, such bacteria might be considered harmless to the average individual, but to someone with a compromised immune system, this bacteria could potentially be lethal. Reducing or eliminating these risks altogether will likely require the assistance of a highly trained and qualified pest control management team.

If you’ve ever tried eliminating ants on your own with over the counter solutions, you’ve likely been unsuccessful. Don’t feel like too much of a failure because you are not alone. 90 percent of the people that try end up failing.

This is where our highly trained and qualified teams come in.
