Merritt Island Ant Control
Keeping Brevard County Homes Ant Free
Ants are social insects living in colonies that can grow unimaginably large. If you see an ant in the house or fire ant mounds in the yard, you probably have a lot more ants that you haven’t seen. Green Wing Lawn and Pest Services offers ant control in Merritt Island and Brevard County for problems with ants indoors and in the yard.
Treating Ant Infestations Indoors
Ants, like many invasive creepy insects, can gain access into the home through small cracks and crevices in the wall and along plumbing pipes. They are often seen in the kitchen since they are looking for food sources. Depending on the type of ant and what they get into, they can cause a variety of problems, ranging from contaminating your food to causing structural damage.
We provide ant control for all common species, including:
- Carpenter ants
- Odorous house ants
- Pharaoh ants
- Fire ants
- Ghost ants
- Crazy ants
The first step to eradicating an ant problem is to determine what type of ant you are dealing with. We can identify the ants that have invaded your home or business and recommend ant control in Merritt Island that is specified to your needs. We can create a follow-up treatment schedule to solve your ant problem. If an issue arises between treatments, we provide free service.
Fire Ants & Outdoor Ant Problems
Your ant control efforts shouldn’t be limited to the indoors. Lawns across the state of Florida are infested with fire ants. They are extremely territorial and protective of their nests and will attack adults, children, and pets that step on them. You can recognize the presence of fire ants by the small, sandy mounds they build on the lawn.
If fire ants have you worried about letting the kids or dogs into the yard, we can provide effective ant control in Merritt Island to keep your indoor and outdoor areas free of ants. We use high-quality products that are safe and effective to help you enjoy a safe and attractive lawn without compromising on environmental consciousness.
Preventing Ants from Returning
Once we treat the ant problem, the other important component of long-term ant control is to prevent them from getting inside again. This includes finding and eliminating potential entry points, nesting sites, and food sources that attract ants and keep them coming back. You can take a few steps to reduce future ant infestations.
To prevent future ant problems, you can:
- Seal up any tiny holes and cracks where ants are getting inside the house
- Keep food in sealed containers
- Wipe up spills quickly and don’t leave crumbs or sugar around
- Check houseplants for nests and remove any that are infested
- Clean up after meals and don’t leave dishes in the sink when ants are around
- Remove garbage quickly
Ant infestations can quickly get out of control. For this reason, we recommend calling for Merritt Island ant control as soon as you notice an ant problem. We can provide a free estimate for ant control service and same-day appointments are available.
