Eliminate Your Ant Problem With Total Pest Control Fresno
Ants are one of the most common pests found in California homes. They seek protection from the elements, water sources and cabinets full of food, all of which are widely available in homes and apartments.
Aside from being an annoyance, a few side effects of having ants on your property are landscaping disasters, electrical damage ($1,000s), and some species are capable of delivering painful and toxic bites to adults, small children, and pets.
Total Pest Control is happy to help Fresno, Clovis, and surrounding residents with eliminating and preventing ants from coming into your home or property. Our treatment for ant control also eliminates and prevents cockroaches, spiders, and other insects from reaching your home.
How To Prevent Ants
What is the one thing no creature can live without? Food! While you can’t eliminate food from your home completely, it’s best to remove and hide any evidence of cooking or dining from ants. The best way to prevent ants from coming into your home, is by keeping it tidy.
Combined with a professional ant control treatment, little tasks like cleaning up dirty dishes, taking out the trash each night, and always wiping down surfaces after you cook or eat goes a long ways.
How Does Our Treatment Work Against Ants?
First, we start by applying a barrier around your property line to prevent any ants and other pests like cockroaches and spiders from coming over from your neighbor’s property. Next, we spray the base of your home and the roof line as well as all the windows. These are the most common entry points for ants.
Once we move inside, we’ll apply a gel in key locations, out of reach from pets and small children, that attracts ants to the gel. Once the ants take the gel back to their colony, the treatment will go to work reducing the ant population to nothing.
After just one or two inside treatments, the inside of your home will be pest free from ants, cockroaches, spiders, and other common household pests. We’ll continue to apply a barrier around your property line and the outside of your home to prevent any pests from re-entering.
