One of the most common pests that can appear in a home are ants. There are many varieties of them in Virginia Highlands and usually the ones you can see are only a small part of the problem. It’s the ones you can’t see that cause the most problems. Any time ants are present, there is a colony. Until the colony is located and eliminated, there will be more and more ants and any effort you make to control them will be pointless. It is difficult to locate the colony, especially if it is outside. It is a good idea to have professional exterminators inspect the problem and locate the colony. We can do that for you.
Why do I have ants in my home?
Ants, like most other creatures, are always in search of food. Dirty dishes in the sink, crumbs, overflowing trash and spills can all attract ants. Keeping your kitchen clean and your floors swept are the first step to keeping ants out. Whether it is a seasonal problem for you or year round, ants are a nuisance. They will come into your house for food and take it back out to their colony. That is why it is so important to have a professional exterminator involved in the process of locating and exterminating them. They will be attracted to places with moisture, like window frames or under your floor and once they find a way in, they will continue to use it.
