Fox Pest Control’s Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas Ant Exterminator Service

Ants in your kitchen again? You know the drill: ants come in and stick around for months. You probably already know this, but if you see them in the kitchen, they’re in the bathrooms, bedrooms and doorways, too. Pretty soon the ants are taking over the entire house! At Fox Pest Control, we want you to feel comfortable and secure in an ant-free home. 

Signs of an Ant Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have an ant problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of an ant infestation in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas. 

Large Mounds in the Yard

They can be bare dirt or sand, or they can be covered in growing, healthy grass.

Ant Trails

Ants will travel long distances for food. Ant trails may disappear after the food source is gone.

Piles of ants

in grass, sand, or even cracks in brick or cement

What You Need to Know About Ants

  • Ants come in a large variety. In Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas, the most common kinds of ants you’ll see around your home are:
    • Sugar ants
    • Ghost ants
    • Odorous house ants 
    • Carpenter ants
  • Ants find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping. Once inside, they hunt for food and moisture. That’s why you’ll see them most often in your kitchen and bathroom. 
  • While most of these ants are harmless, carpenter ant infestations can pose a serious threat to your Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas property, because they tunnel their way through wood, causing damage to your home. 

Helpful Ant Prevention Tips 

  • Move wood or low-hanging tree branches away from your house. 
  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.

Ant Infestation Control FAQ

How do I get rid of ant infestations? Can I get rid of ants by myself?

The best way to get rid of ants permanently is with professional Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas pest control and ant extermination because we have all the right tools and knowledge. While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything ants can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.

Why do ants keep coming back in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas?

You must control ants because they can create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Fox Pest Control has the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively provide ant control in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas.

What problems do carpenter ants cause? 

Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve tunnels in wood. Although they don’t eat the wood as termites do, if you don’t get help with carpenter ant treatment they can cause serious damage to your home if left untreated.

Which ants are the most dangerous?

Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp. You need to control fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants - they are among those stinging ants that live in the United States. 

Carpenter ants. You must exterminate carpenter ants because they can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.

Are ants poisonous?

Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings. 

What is the difference between a regular ant and a carpenter ant?

The main difference is the size. While most ants in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas are about ⅛ inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to ½ inch, about four times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.

Gawayne Nunes from Fox stopped by and took care of my home. I have had excellent service from Fox since joining up and even when the kids find an ant or spider a quick call and they are out in a day or two to retreat the entire home and ensure that we do not have any more issues. Lets face it pests will constantly look for free food, free homes, etc. and without ongoing support they will find new ways in to get what they can find. They have been consistently pleasant to work with and have made regular visits to check and ensure a barrier remains around the premises and check for possible issues. What more could you look for in a pest control company?

We have been a customer of Fox Pest Control for the past year and have been happy with results. Cawayne Nunes was our technician who came for scheduled service. He was very professional, friendly, and did a thorough job. Cawayne asked if we were seeing any issues and treated the inside when I asked. Before leaving, he asked if I had any questions or other concerns and said to contact them if we needed anything between service calls. We were very happy with the service today!
