” Fire ants live in colonies, which can contain over 200,000 ants. They can create underground tunnels that can extend up to 25 feet away from the mound.”

Summer months is when we start to notice ants starting to invade our home. The fact of the matter is there are over 12,000 different species of ants around the world, and knowing which pesticide that works best with each species is best determined by a trained technician. Do it yourself treatments usually only treat the ants you see, however, the colony can consist of 300,00 to 500,000 ants and often times requires a different type of treatment than the conventional DIY method.

We’ve been using this company for quarterly maintenance for years. Always happy with their service and knowledge. We had a bout of spiders and small roaches (we live way out in the country) after weeks of rain and had them come out to treat and haven’t had any issue since. We use them for yard treatment and are pleased! Highly recommend!
