Frequently Asked Questions About Ants

You can do your part to prevent pests from entering your house by keeping food stored in airtight containers and closing any cracks and gaps where they might enter. Waltham Pesticide Control will determine which type of pest control is best for your home and then provide an effective solution.

Ants are omniverous and eat just about anything, including food, sap, plant material, and other living or deceased insects.

Ants are attracted to warm spaces where they can build their colony while still being near abundant food sources, moisture and protect the nest indoors or outdoors.

Food Contamination

  • Ants may carry and transmit bacterial and fungal organisms that are serious disease pathogens and can be spread around your food or pantry.

Property Damage

  • Acrobat ants and carpenter ants build their nests in damp or decaying wood. Homes with moisture issues are prime targets for carpenter ants.

Harmful Ant Bites and Stings

  • Ants can bite when they feel threatened, and a person who is highly allergic to wasp and bee stings may also be allergic to ant stings.

Black House Ant Treatment Services

There are many different DIY options for treatment of ants, but unfortunately, most of them are ineffective and frustrating. Waltham Pest Control usually treats ants by treating the cracks & crevices inside structures. We don’t put anything out wafting around in the air. We use special equipment that allows us to lay a bead of liquid product along places like where the baseboard meets the floor. The product almost completely wicks back in under the baseboard making it very hard for anyone to contact our product except the ants. We use a combination of liquid products and gel type baits, both injected into cracks and crevices so that the ants will be treated, but surfaces we use won’t be.
