We provide customized treatments targeted to the ants’ most desired harborage areas, nesting sites and migration paths, unique to your property. Here’s an overview of what you may expect our service to include.

Inspection: We perform a thorough property inspection to determine the species of ant and what may be attracting them to the property and the level of infestation.

Treatment: We use low-impact and botanical treatments that are effective and proven ant control solutions. These customized treatments take care of the immediate problems as well as treat ant harborage areas in the landscape which aids in preventing future population growth.

Recommendations: Your technician will make recommendations as to measures that will promote successful control of these pests on your property. The following should be accomplished before any service is performed in order to ensure a successful treatment. Other recommendations specific to your property may be made at the time of service.

  • Give your plants a bath; it promotes good health and knocks plant-sucking insects to the ground where they will most likely die reducing a major food source for ants.
  • Cut areas of tall grass and remove leaf litter and any fallen fruit from under trees and plants.
  • Prune and thin out dense foliage. Let the sun in!
  • Repair any leaky faucets and let over-watered areas dry out.

We are committed to providing timely and effective control for our customers, but without a regularly scheduled maintenance program, infestations of ants are sure to reoccur, since they migrate from neighboring properties.

Corky’s Ultimate Pest Control Service Plan, provides year-round control and preventative treatments for not only ants but spiders, aphids, whitefly, ticks, mosquitoes and much more!

MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE
Money-Back Guarantee

We are confident that the service we provide will meet or beat your expectations for the control of ants on your property. If in the event, our initial efforts do not afford you the control you expected and subsequent corrective measures are unsuccessful, we will refund the amount of your last paid service.

A landscape tick, mosquito, aphid and whitefly prevention treatment is included in the Ant Control Service as a free added benefit. There is no implied guarantee for these insects as ticks may be brought to the property by skunks, opossums, rats and other outside sources that are beyond our control. Flying insects; mosquitoes, aphids and whitefly, fly in from outlying areas, surrounding the properties that we treat, and are therefore not included as part of any guarantee.


Ant Migration Paths


Ant Migration Paths

Why do ants come into your home?

The answer is simple. Ants are hungry for food and thirsty for water. When food and water become scarce, ants enter your home in search of water found in the sink traps of your kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room and garage. Ants also feed on food found inside your home, anything from a little juice or soda spilled on the floor or tabletop to crumbs on your furniture.

Here are some more do-it-yourself ant control recommendations:

Outside Prevention

  • Keep the plantings in your landscape healthy and free of insects. Give your plants a bath; it promotes good health and knocks plant-sucking insects to the ground where they will most likely die reducing a major food source for ants.
  • Minimize ants' access to water. Fix leaky faucets and irrigation equipment. Practice water conservation and do not over-water.
  • Do not leave pet food or pet watering bowls outside.
  • Keep trash bins covered and away from the house. Clean your trash bins regularly.
  • Pick up fallen fruit from under trees and rotting vegetables from gardens.
  • When an ant nest is found, take care of it immediately. Pouring hot, boiling water into an ant nest will kill the colony.

Inside Prevention

  • Practice good sanitation measures especially in the kitchen. Ants are attracted to the food we leave behind.
  • Cover food and liquid substances tightly and keep surfaces clean.
  • Sweep floors and vacuum your carpets. The tiniest crumbs can attract ants.
  • Always cover and seal the food that's not in the fridge.
  • Do not leave dirty dishes in the sink.
  • Keep trash cans and bins clean and take the trash out often.
  • Keep your countertops dry. Don't allow liquids to accumulate on counters and other surfaces. Ants look for water wherever they can find it.
  • Fix dripping faucets.
