Scranton Ant Control Services

Has an army of ants invaded your home or business? If so, the best course of action is to contact a professional exterminator immediately. Many people use their own methods to rid their home or business of ants, but they always return time and time again. This is because the main body of ants often travels to and from their colony, which could be anywhere inside or outside of the home. Scouts are sent by the queen ant to look for food. Once food is found, hundreds and even thousands of ants travel the trail left by the scouts to locate the food. Simply trying to kill ants you see in your home will not solve the problem. Colwell Termite & Pest Control offers professional ant control in Scranton, as well as the surrounding areas of Mountain Top, Wilkes-Barre, Pittston, Old Forge, Honesdale, Stroudsburg, Pocono and more.

Our ant exterminators will diligently locate the main source (colony) and apply the latest treatments to eliminate the nest. Nests outside of the home can be found in trees, tree stumps, fences, and in the ground. Professional ant extermination inside the home includes treatments that will not harm family members or pets. Ongoing prevention is recommended by ant exterminators to prevent future infestation.

Carpenter ants are a common species in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Carpenter ants can be just as damaging as termites by burrowing in the wood structure of a home and making nests in the wood. If you suspect a problem, calling Colwell Termite & Pest Control today will save you the cost of expensive repairs in the future.

In addition to damaging the wood framing of homes, ants can also build nests in walls, doors, cracks, basements, foundations, crawl spaces, bricks, eaves, and decks. These tiny pests also follow wiring and plumbing to infiltrate all areas of your home. Even furniture can be infested and damaged. Tunnels constructed by ants outside the home cause damage by uprooting and cracking sidewalks, driveways, and patios as the ground beneath collapses. The application of the latest ant control technology by the professional exterminators at Colwell Termite & Pest Control will allow you to safely enjoy activities inside the home and outside in the yard.

Ants also cause health risks by contaminating food. Disease and bacteria can be transmitted through their bites and the trails they leave for other ants to follow. A swarm of ants scouting for food will be drawn no matter how clean the surrounding area. Foods left on tidy counter tops in the kitchen can attract ants in minutes. Even favorite drinks cannot be left unattended inside or outside of the home. Our professional ant exterminators have the knowledge to completely and efficiently eliminate ants and restore comfort and cleanliness to your residence. Contact our professionals today.
