Carpenter Ants

We at PestCo know that spring is here when the calls come into the office for "big black ants in the kitchen and bathroom." Seeing ants in the house in the spring indicates that there is an established colony in the walls or structure of your home and needs to be treated by a PestCo professional. Carpenter ants eat wood, and can huge damage if left untreated.

Please call us for REAL carpenter ant pest control solutions that actually correct the cause of the ant problem. Simply catching a few ants in little traps from the local store does not address the actual infestation. The correct solution is identification of the ant source and colony, and ant extermination and colony  removal. This is what we do. And we are very, very good at it! Just give us a call, and we'll come take a look.

Carpenter ants are associated with water issues inside or outside the home (drainage, leakage, ect.). They also originate from trees and bushes.
