Everyone Knows the struggle of an ant invasion. These pesky little bugs are impressive from a sociological and physical standpoint, but they are unwelcome houseguests that can cause a big headache.

Identifying Ants

Ants are typically harmless, but some, like the fire ant, pack a punch if touched. We see three common species of ants:

Carpenter Ants

  • Brown or black, sometimes a combination of black and orange
  • 3/8 to 1/2 an inch in size
  • A rounded thorax (area just below the head)
  • Slim midsection
  • Slightly bent antenna

Pavement Ants

  • Light brown to black
  • Appendages are lighter than the body
  • Head and thorax have long, dark, parallel lines
  • 1/4 of an inch in size
  • 12 segmented antennae with a 3 segmented club

Citronella Ants

  • Usually golden or yellow in color
  • Winged females are golden yellow
  • Winged males are black
  • 1/4 of an inch in size


There are many ways to address ant control. Sealing off access points and decreasing crumbs and leftover food waste are just a few. We can help design a custom ant control plan designed to deal with any current infestation and prevent future battles from spiraling out of control.

Having a trusted service provider makes things so much easier. I know that they’re going to be there. I know that they are going to show when they are supposed to. I know that they are going to make sure they take care of the problem for me.

I was very impressed with the immediate response/ same day service yesterday, and Kevin was great! So happy were not hearing any more noises in the attic.
