Arizona pest control for ants

Ants are commonly found in Arizona, and they may infest your property. As you probably know, ants are a big nuisance, but they can lead to bigger issues. One ant - the carpenter ant - creates tunnels in wood such as logs, and if your structure contains wood, it could face this problem.

You may also deal with Pharaoh ants, which are about 1/16 inch in length and colored yellow to red. Pharaoh ants are attracted to moisture so make sure you fix any leaks or identify areas with excess moisture.

If you are experiencing a severe ant infestation, Western Exterminator can help. Your pest specialist can identify the ant species causing you trouble and administer treatment that is best for that pest. Ants should not be found inside your premises and we will get them out. In the meantime, seal openings in your building that may let ants inside.
