Ant Exterminator in Winston Salem
Ants possess several features that make them particularly difficult to destroy. Ants live in colonies, and the extermination process of ants must involve the elimination of entire colonies. Our team of ant exterminators provides indoor and environmental ant control services.
Ants live in colonies, and a colony can be made up of over 500,000 ants. When ants invade an environment, they look for a suitable location to build a colony and make it their home. From the colony, the different groups perform their duties causing destruction and spreading diseases.
Adult ants, more specifically the workers, are constantly on a rampage for food. This set of ants find foods and transport them back to the colony. Due to the hardworking nature of ants, they are always in search of food eating through wood and other materials in their search. Some types of ant eat most forms of materials to survive. The extermination process of ants involves identifying the type of ant, identifying the colony, destroying the colony, and preventing further infestation.
While DIY control measures may produce short-term effects, numerous ant colonies may still exist in several spots around and within a property. Ants can change the location of their colonies in the shortest period, so all our extermination measures are executed promptly.
Apart from ant bites, ants are known to spread diseases. As they move through the different parts of a property in search of food, they transfer causative agents of diseases from places like bathrooms to foods and cause infections. In identifying the type of ant and the level of infestation, our team studies the colonies of ants with utmost care to avoid alerting them. A control measure is then designed for complete eradication.
Our ant control measures ensure total eradication of ant colonies and prevention of the creation of subsequent colonies. The eradication methods which we employ include general and specific methods.
