Ant Control, Extermination & Prevention Services

Ant Control

Successful carpenter ant control depends on eliminating the parent colony, which is usually located outdoors. Finding and treating as many satellite nests as possible is the key to carpenter ant control. Sometimes, a property can have several nests beside the main colony site. Because it can be difficult to detect these all at the same time, an ongoing pest program will ensure that any activity is addressed immediately to keep the population under control.

Let Safeguard Pest Solutions deal with the problem. The best method for controlling an indoor ant colony is through persistent approved insecticides directly on the colony. We have the proven insecticides and the training to safely use them.

Extermination

Despite claims by manufacturers, commercially available ant bait stations are simply not that effective. Ants are clever creatures and will simply not take the bait.

Prevention

Professional treatments are the most effective when dealing with these pests. They are however toxic and should be treated with care and respect. Safeguard Pest Solutions can help. Call us at 231-903-0063.

How To Find An Ant Nest

Observe Activity

Finding an ant nest can be difficult. Begin by observing where you see the most ant activity. See where they are going and where they are coming from. Ants are great at keeping their home tidy. They quickly remove any excess debris, wood shavings, and dead co-workers from the nest. In many cases, nest debris accumulates in basements beneath the nest area, so look for accumulations of coarse sawdust along basement walls.

Use Bait

Find out where ants are coming from and going to by trying this: Mix 4oz of grape jelly with 1 teaspoon of ground up, dried pet food. Put a teaspoon in a bait jar and watch them carry the food back to the nest.
