Once ants have found something of interest inside your Holly Springs, North Carolina home, it can be challenging to convince them that they’d be better off searching elsewhere. Killing them inside your home is a very ineffective way to deal with ants and could make the situation worse! The best thing to do is call us at NC Pest Control to learn about our highly effective ant control services.
We have a thorough understanding of how ants operate. We know that to dissuade them from repeating the same path, the chemical footprint that was put down by the first ones to enter must be disrupted. Think of it like a trail of breadcrumbs as you might remember from Hansel and Gretel. Even if you kill the first ants, the next wave will follow the trail and be harassing you before long. In fact, when the first team doesn’t return, the queen reacts to the perceived attack by creating more foragers, so you could end up with an even larger invasion next time.
The key to ant control is to stop the queen from going into hyper-breeding mode and to disrupt the chemical trails. In addition, putting an ant control barrier around your home prevents any other stragglers from finding another path in. This last step can be best accomplished with our quarterly pest control services while also keeping more than ants from invading your space.
If you are having a problem with ants in your home, whether one of the less fearsome species or those pesky fire ants with their painful bite, reach out to us for effective ant control to take back your home!
