Let RIDD Pest Control Protect Your Property

No Matter the Problem, Call Ridd Pest Control Today!

You may never have realized how much frustration could come in such a small package as you do when ants invade your property. Ants are social creatures that live in colonies that can number in the thousands and even up to the millions in some of the largest and most serious cases. They are generally extremely small, with the largest species often growing to no bigger than one-quarter to one-half of an inch in size, but don't let that fool you. Ants can find their way into homes and businesses through even the smallest and most seemingly insignificant gaps, and this makes them one of the most obnoxious and labor-intensive pest problems to take care of properly.

Fortunately, you don't have to deal with the frustration and headaches of an ant problem on your own when you have the team at Ridd Pest Control on your side.

Our experienced ant control pros use the latest products and techniques to achieve better and longer-lasting results. We stand by our services, and we always offer peace of mind thanks to a team that always puts customer satisfaction above all else. From large infestations and complex problems to simple spot treatments, one-time solutions, and even ongoing treatment plans that keep you protected at all times, make the call and place your trust in us.

How to Handle an
Ant Problem

Ants are proof that small size doesn't necessarily mean a lack of superpowers. While most people know that spoiled food or uncleaned messes can lead to ant invasions, what few people realize is just how good an ant's sense of smell is.

Some theorize that ants might have a sense of smell that is hundreds of times more powerful than a dog's. Thanks to remarkable scent receptors located in their long antennae, ants can track down even the slightest scent from a considerably long distance, and this makes them extremely adept at tracking down food sources.

Ants are also capable of lifting several times their body weight, making them one of the strongest creatures on the planet as well.

Ant Behavior Characteristics

Ants are colony animals, meaning they tend to live in a large group. Much like bees, ants also have a queen who essentially rules the hive, mates with females, and is responsible for continuing the colony's existence. When the queen dies, a colony often dies out not long after. When it comes to eliminating ant problems, locating a colony and eliminating the queen is generally the first step. However, this isn't always as simple as it seems. Ant colonies can be difficult to locate, particularly in places like lawns, gardens, and flowerbeds.

However, ants tend to make their presence known in force when they locate a food source. As scavengers, they leave behind a trail of scent that other worker ants follow to reach their food. Following a trail of ants not only can help you locate what has drawn them in to begin with but can also usually guide you back to where they are coming from so you can deal with the problem.

Preventative Measures for Ant Control

Preventing an ant infestation is just as important as treating one. Our expert technicians at Ridd Pest Control can provide you with valuable tips and strategies to keep ants away from your property.

Some preventative measures for ant control include:

  • Sealing cracks and crevices in your home's foundation and walls
  • Keeping food containers tightly sealed and stored properly
  • Regularly cleaning up food crumbs and spills
  • Trimming back vegetation and trees that may be attracting ants to your property
  • Using ant-repellent products around the perimeter of your home

By taking proactive steps to prevent ants from entering your home, you can avoid the hassle and frustration of dealing with an infestation in the first place.
