Pavement Ants are typically 1/8 to 1/6 of an inch long and brownish black in color. They are typically found outdoors coming up from under pavement, stones and next to homes/buildings. Although they are occasionally found in walls, under floors, and in insulation. Pavement ants can be a particular nuisance around homes with a slab construction. Foragers enter buildings through cracks in the slabs and similar openings. They enter in search of food with greasy and sweet material being preferred.
Since the majority of the colony is in inaccessible areas, it is virtually impossible to eliminate the colonies in, under and around your home/building; although we can control them effectively. We would suggest a quarterly service that we would treat with a water base material in the problem areas in and out as needed. In addition we would put out ant bait in specific known problem areas. The service will also help control spiders, wasps, and most all crawling insects. For commercial buildings we normally service monthly for best results. Any problems with ants that are covered under the service agreement will be treated at no additional charge between regular scheduled services; call us for full guarantee details.
