Household Ant Control
Ants may be small, but they can cause big problems. Ants enter your home through the tiniest cracks. While doing so, they leave behind a scent so others of their like can follow the trail to food.
Effective treatment consists of finding the nest and the treatment must penetrate and destroy the unseen nest which could be under your home, in the walls, or in the foundation. It’s the only way to eliminate the colony and prevent ants from returning.

Fire ants and their telltale mound nests should be actively avoided. Interfering with a fire ant nest can cause them to sting, resulting in painful welts. To prevent red ants from entering a structure, seal all internal and external cracks and crevices.
Unlike many other ants, which bite and then spray acid on the wound, fire ants only bite to get a grip and then sting (from the abdomen) and inject a toxic alkaloid venom (piperidine).
For humans, this is a painful sting, which leaves a sensation similar to what one feels when they get burned by fire – hence the name fire ant – and the aftereffects of the sting can be deadly to sensitive individuals.
