Ants can be a major pest for homes and businesses in the greater Kittitas County area and we at Prosite Pest Control understand how important effective ant control can be. Left unaddressed, an ant infestation can result in expensive repair bills and an unattractive living space. Home remedies and over the counter pesticides cannot effectively remove an ant infestation in the way our trained pest control experts can.
Why Do I Have Ant Problems?
Generally, ant infestations enter a home in search of food or nest space. For most homes, carpenter ants can post the greatest threat, since they bore passages into the wood in order to build a nest for their young. Left unaddressed, a carpenter ant infestation can result in thousands of dollars worth of structural damage to a home or business.
In addition, a number of ant species will enter a home in search of sweets or other foods. These pests can ruin food, get into bedding and otherwise damage the living conditions of the home. These types of ant infestations can be especially inconvenient for homes with children or pets.
Long Lasting Ant Control
Eliminating an ant infestation requires the destruction of the nest. Simply spraying those ants that are in the open does nothing to eliminate the root of the problem. We can ensure that the source of the problem is eliminated, rather than simply addressing the visible symptoms. This is especially important when dealing with carpenter ants, since the only way to eliminate the nest and prevent further damage to home is to locate, treat and replace the infested wood.
Finally, our treatments also ensure that future infestations will be prevented. By determining what parts of the home might be vulnerable in the future, we can help develop a treatment plan that prevents later ant infestations from becoming established in the home. This helps ensure that you and your family will be able to enjoy an ant-free house long after we have eliminated the current infestation.
At Prosite, we can help you protect your home from current and future infestations alike. Call us today to speak with one of our skilled pest control specialists and obtain a free consultation and quote.
