Ant Identification & Control
Ants tend to enter through the smallest cracks, looking for water and sweet foods in kitchens and pantry areas. They also leave invisible pheromone trails that indicate to other ants they have found food and should follow, making it easy for entire colonies (some as large as 500,000 ants!) to find their way into your establishment.

Ant Extermination Methods
Because ants are tiny, they can find thousands of small entrances into your home. If you have a residential ant infestation it is often due to food scraps being available for ants to eat or generally a lack of upkeep around the home. If you believe you have found the entrance for the ants you can attempt to use calk to physically seal off the point of entry. Another trick would be to spray vinegar along the point of entry as this can sometimes deter ants from entering your living space.
While insecticides are commonly used for Ant Extermination Philadelphia there are also other ways to deal with the pests without the need of chemicals. Dish soap has been found to also deter ants from wanting to gain access into your property and if you don’t like the smell of vinegar you can try using lemon juice around the perimeter of your building to deter ants from entering. Additionally, if you need help with Flea Extermination in Philadelphia, The Aardvark is standing by to help with any pest extermination problems you may have.
Ant Removal from Home
Ant infestations in your home can either be a year-round or seasonal issue. If ants have found a way to build their nest within the confines of your home you are certainly much more likely to have a year round infestation problem, but if they have their nest outside and are coming inside for food they are likely to be just a seasonal problem.
Our expertly trained pest management technicians are able to quickly and effectively determine the exact point of entry of the ants in your home and draft a comprehensive IPM strategy that will remove the ants from your home and stop them from coming back. Recommendations may include drastic measures such as a deep cleaning of your house or simply moving your garbage bin to a different location such that the ants can’t access it.

Food grade diatomaceous earth is often used when pets are a main priority in the extermination of ants. It is made up of fossilized diatoms that have been ground down into a powder. Once the ants cross the power their exoskeleton is ripped open, causing them to dry out and eventually die. Often times Mosquito Control in Philadelphia goes hand in had with Ant Extermination.
