Ant Control for the San Antonio, TX area

Ants are tiny insects that are looking for food and water in your home or business. An ant infestation is one of the most commonly reported pest control problems. An ant can eat peanut butter, vegetables, meats, cheese, sugar, and even dead insects! That’s why you’ll often find them in your kitchen cupboards, picking at the food you just bought the day before. They’re also attracted to rotting or moldy wood.

Different Kinds of Ants

There are many different types of ants to be on the lookout for.

Carpenter Ants: They tend to live in rotting or damaged wood and can also be found when building their nests.

Red Imported Fire Ants: These ants give a painful sting and construct large mounds for nests.

Pavement Ants: They’re capable of infesting a building and generally make their nests in cracks and grooves in pavement.

Pharaoh Ants: They’re capable of transmitting Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas infections. They are commonly found in restaurants, nursing homes, hospitals, and apartment buildings.
