Ant Control

What is Ant Control?

Many homeowners and business owners in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area are no strangers to varying degrees of ant infestations. Depending on the species, ants can cause extensive structural damage to your property, while others may inflict painful stings on households, staff members, or customers. The different types of ant species found in Texas include fire ants, carpenter ants, sugar ants, acrobat ants, Argentine ants, bigheaded ants, crazy ants, ghost ants, harvester ants, leafcutter ants, and pharaoh ants – all of which can possibly invade your property in no time. Food sources, greasy surfaces, leaving out sticky garbage and decayed wood, or leaky pipes are all causes of ant infestations in residential and commercial properties.

Professional ant control treatments are the ultimate solution to stopping ants in their tracks before they cause any major problems. At EcoStar Pest Control, our ant control services involve the use of customized solutions tailored for the property’s specific needs and the type and degree of infestation. Our trained ant control specialists will inspect your property and provide special injection treatments that can effectively kill and prevent ants from returning to your home or place of business. Other professional methods to eliminate ants include the use of broadcast baits, long residual contact insecticide treatments, and individual mound treatments.

Benefits of Ant Control

Elimination of Health Risks

Fire ants can bite or sting people, with the venom causing pain, swelling, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Fire ant venom may even trigger allergic reactions or anaphylaxis. Residential and commercial ant control can help prevent these issues from happening, keeping people safe from serious health risks.

Prevention of Structural Damage

Ant species like carpenter ants can potentially cause significant structural damage to homes and buildings as they tend to nest in structural lumber like hollow doors, windows, wall voids, and the like. Prevent potentially expensive repairs by availing of professional ant control services.

Landscape Maintenance

Ant mounts smothering the grass can destroy your beloved landscaping project. When ant colonies and nests are too extensive, the tunnels they create can cause soil to dry up, resulting in dead grass. Getting rid of these insects with the appropriate treatments can keep landscaping and plants safe from recurring damage.

Secure Electrical Equipment

Other than nesting in wood areas, ants would also make shelters near circuit breakers, electric pumps, outlets, and air conditioner units, which can cause significant damage. Ant control treatments will use low-impact products around different sources of ant colonies to prevent short circuits or damaged wirings.

Professional ant control experts like us at EcoStar Pest Control can inspect for ants and other pests, identifying any ant species or pests living in your home or place of business. May it be ants, rodents, termites, flies, or mosquitoes, we will provide immediate treatment to keep the area completely pest-free.
