Ant Facts

Ants are commonly found everywhere in the wold except for Antarctica and some tiny uninhabitable islands.

Ant Treatment

The first step in eliminating an ant infestation in your home is to identify the species of ant. Not all ants are created equal; therefore understanding their biology and the specific species differences is critical in order to develop the proper control strategy that must be used to get rid of ants from your home. And do-it-yourself ant control methods usually are not effective. Killing ants on sight is rarely an effective solution as treatment needs to reach the queen in order to eliminate the colony. Have an expert Fast Action technician come out for a free inspection to identify your pests and recommend the best solution for your ant problem.

Ant Prevention

You can prevent ants from entering your home by using a number of methods:
  • Store food in safe and secure containers
  • Sweep up food and dirt
  • Remove unused pet food
  • Seal up access points and holes
  • Clean up food and liquid spills
