Ants

pest control for ants in ann arbor michigan

In Michigan, ants are the pest you are most likely to encounter.

In the case of Carpenter Ants they are also one of the most destructive. Community Pest Solutions will identify the type of ant you are having a problem with and put together a simple control strategy to eliminate the entire colony. Ant treatment technology has advanced significantly and no longer requires invasive drilling, dusting or spraying indoors. Modern treatment methods focus on baiting and exterior treatments that are designed to be taken back to the nest, eliminating the entire colony.

Carpenter Ants
While there are several types of large ants in Michigan, the most commonly seen indoors is the Carpenter Ant. These ants don’t actually eat wood like termites do, they chew and remove the wood to make tunnels that they live in, destroying the woods integrity. In a Carpenter Ant nest there are several different sized ants ranging from 1/4 inch to 1 inch long. While they may look very different (some are fairly small and some surprisingly large with wings), they are all Carpenter Ants. When they aren’t chewing on your house they are busy looking for food inside and outside. Community Pest Solutions starts indoor treatment with noninvasive gel baits that the ants will eat, take back and distribute throughout their nest. We pair baiting with a thorough exterior perimeter treatment that works the same way. We guarantee our Carpenter Ant treatments for the remaining calendar year!
Pavement Ants
There are several types of small ants in Michigan but the Pavement ant is the most common. Also known as Slab Ants or Sugar Ants, these pests commonly live under concrete slab foundations, porches and inside wall voids. Pavement ants are a common pest all year and they are often determined to invade your kitchen or bathroom. Community Pest Solutions starts indoor treatment with noninvasive gel baits that the ants will eat, take back and distribute throughout their nest. We pair baiting with a thorough exterior perimeter treatment that works the same way. We guarantee our Pavement Ant treatments for the remaining calendar year!
