Ant Infestations

As one of the most commonly encountered pests in the U.S., Western Exterminator helps customers year round solve ant-related problems. Ant infestations can be problematic for both homeowners and businesses as they can poise the below risks to people, including:

  • Infest and contaminate food and food-serving areas
  • Spread bacteria and disease-causing organisms
  • Contaminate sterile areas like hospitals and food processing facilities
  • Damage reputations of businesses and brands

Ant Infestations: What To Look For

  • Live ants - If you’re seeing large numbers of live ants then you may well have a problem. If you find them in your kitchen or in areas where you prepare food, then you need to do something about it fast.

  • Ant pathways - In and out of your home or premises are another sign. Some types of ant will lay down a pheromone trail to a food source. This chemical attracts other ants to find the food.

  • Ant nest - A nest site can look like a small pile of soil or dirt. Some species of ant like to make their home in walls or other quiet, dark places, which are more difficult to spot.

  • Dirt - It is quite common to find small heaps of earth or dirt usually found around nest sites when ants infest a property.
