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 ants can pose a serious threat to your property, because they tunnel their way through wood. This causes 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 Control FAQ

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

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

Why do ants keep coming back?

Some ants 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 has the tools necessary to get rid of the problem for good.

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, 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 sting. Fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants are among those that live in the United States. 

Carpenter ants. Carpenter ants 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 as well as a bite. 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 are about 1/8 inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to 1/2 inch, about 4 times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.

5 Stars

We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
