Ant removal must be done carefully or the problem will worsen.
Ants are known to be industrious creatures. What you might not know is that they have a complex communication system among them that enables the queen and the hive to react in the event they believe they are under attack.
When you utilize DIY ant removal methods, such as squashing those you find, you could make matters worse. When those ants do not return, the queen simply produces more, and other ants (usually an even larger number!) follow the scent trail of their missing comrades right back to your Knoxville, Tennessee home.
At True Blue Termite and Pest Control, our professional ant removal methods resolve the problem completely by taking care of the colony itself– not just a few visitors to your home. When you notice ants in your home, it is important to note that there are usually more that you do not see.
Once they have determined there is a food or water source, they’ll keep returning and will bring along others from the colony. This can be really bad news if they are carpenter ants that have found a place they like, as they’ll cause damage to the wood in your home.
Ant removal is just the first step at eliminating an ant problem in your home. It should be followed with ant control to provide a barrier so other colonies go somewhere else besides entering your home. Our quarterly pest control customers enjoy consistent control against ants and a host of other pests.
