Cincinnati Ant Control
If ants have infested your home or business, they can quickly become a major nuisance, contaminating food and even damaging your building's structure. Ants not only multiply extremely quickly, but certain types leave behind pheromones which actually attract more ants to the colony they have set up in your building. With over 700 known species, the key to effectively eliminating an ant problem is to call on a seasoned professional. Greenix has been helping property owners throughout the Cincinnati area get rid of ants for years and are ready to help resolve your ant problem fast.
Ant infestations may be difficult to spot as most colonies make their home buried inside walls, crevices, and other hidden away areas. One definite sign of a severe ant infestation is the appearance of ants with large wings. These ants are called, "alates," and play a chief role in reproduction. Seeing these in your home or office almost always indicate there is a well-established colony nearby that will require a professional pest control expert to properly address the infestation.
Common Types of Household Ant Infestations
- Odorous House Ants
- Pavement Ants
- Ghost Ants
- Fire Ants
- Carpenter Ants
- Sugar Ants
- And More
Carpenter ants are quite difficult to control because once their main colony is established, they often establish smaller colonies, usually inside crevices, crawlspaces, attics, and other hollow areas of your home or office. Unlike most household ants, if you have a carpenter ant infestation, significant damage to the structure of your building is likely. Though they do not eat wood, carpenter ants bury their colonies deep inside the structure, burrowing through wood to stay hidden away.
If you believe you have a carpenter ant infestation, it is recommended you deal with the problem quickly before major building repairs are necessary. The Greenix team specializes in identifying carpenter ant colonies and a developing long-lasting treatment program to keep carpenter ants away for good.
