Our ant control methods are designed to eliminate the colony for lasting results.
“Ants have the most complicated social organization on earth next to humans.”
– E. O. Wilson
If you have ever wondered why it seems so difficult to rid your Princeton, North Carolina home of ants, you can get a glimpse at the reason from E. O. Wilson’s quote about the social organization of ants. Their highly developed communication system makes it challenging to eliminate an ant problem without making it worse. At Canady’s Termite & Pest Control, many of our calls are about ant control because DIY methods simply do not work.
Ant control methods must involve getting the poisoned bait back to the queen. If we were to just kill off the visible ants, the queen would soon realize it and make more foragers that would follow the chemical trail left by those killed previously and be ready to ruin your day yet again. In addition, we can put a protective barrier around the base of your home to discourage ants from entering, but since ants can climb remarkably well and make the trek to your home on tree branches and other landscaping, the best solution is to eliminate the colony.
We don’t believe in doing things half-way or not giving you lasting ant control benefits, so you can count on us for reliable services that get the job done. We back all our pest control services with a 90-day guarantee, so if you still see ants after our visit, just let us know, and we’ll figure out how they have managed to circumvent our efforts and resolve the problem at no additional cost to you. We have a very good track record dealing with ants, so that is rarely necessary, but as we’ve said, ants are pretty complicated and stubborn.
If you have any questions about our ant control or other pest control services or would like to schedule an appointment, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
