‘Tis the season for sunny days, warmer weather and more ant problems. As the temperatures warm up, the ants get busy again seeking food and new places to build colonies. For one unfortunate homeowner in East Hampton, their kitchen became this place. Our ant exterminator went to the home for the initial inspection to find odorous ants in the kitchen and dining room on the main level of the home. Also observed were vectors of propagation in the basement and billiard room. Ants continually propagate and usually in different parts of your home which makes it quite difficult for the Do-It-Yourselfers to tackle ant control issues. Point of contact sprays do work for spot treatments and quickly kill ants that are visible colony or two or more present where more ants reside.
After thoroughly inspecting the inside and foundation of home, additional carpenter ants were discovered . The exterminator also concluded that there were no termites or other pest issues.
It was determined that the best treatment for this situation was a heavy initial treatment and bait application. When problems on this scale occur, we typically recommend a continued maintenance program. For this customer, a quarterly maintenance program was chosen which covers 3 additional visits. Each quarter, an ant exterminator returns to the home to inspect all areas where previous ants were discovered as well as inspection of all interior and exterior areas of the home to make sure no additional problems are present. Maintenance programs are for peace of mind and knowing that you are covered if they come back.
No ant problems are too big or too small for EcoTech Pest Control. We understand that ants are disgusting, especially when finding them in the places you and your family spend time in. Kitchens and basements are very common locations to find ants due to drink spills or crumbs on the floor or the dampness and softer wood in the basement.
