Ant Pest Control and Exterminator Services

Getting rid of ants on your own can be difficult. The traditional short term pest control fix has been to apply insecticides around the exterior of structures. However, this method has proven to be ineffective for long-term control of ants. It also poses a risk to our waterways and native pollinators.

Our proactive ant control service, certified by EcoWise and Green Shield, will provide you with long-term control of ants. Most specifically, control of the invasive Argentine ant (Linepithema humile) species.

With Traditional Treatments

  • Short term fix by using a perimeter treatment that only kills foraging ants
  • Use of broad spectrum insecticides that put pollinators at risk
  • Potential for runoff of pesticides into stormwater

With Pestec

  • Targeted bait treatment that kills the entire ant colony
  • Reduce Argentine ant population seasonal peaks
  • Use of tamper resistant bait stations that keep harmful insecticides out of our waterways
  • Reduce risks to pollinators by keeping baits in containers and off blooms
