Why?  We understand Carpenter Ants are harder to control than many other types of ants.  And as such our technicians are adequately licensed to deal with any situation.  Most exterminators are not qualified to treat beyond the boundaries of your home.  As such they avoid answering questions about attacking ants at their nest, they simply want to spray the interior and exterior walls and call it good.

Oh sure protecting the boundaries of your home will temporarily keep the ants out of  your home, and even delay them from destroying your deck for a month or two.  But in the end the poison will weaken and they will attack again.  The other companies will gladly sign you up on a quarterly plan and return every three months to spray your home, and yet they will never attempt to destroy the ant colony.  The primary reason really is unclear; maybe they don’t truly understand the challenge, or lack the proper training, but most likely it is because they are not licensed to treat beyond the boundaries of your home and thus never think to attack the ants in their home instead of your home.

At Gateway Pest Control we use a three prong approach when dealing with ants.  First, like every other exterminator in town we will spray the interior and exterior of your home.  Realising that just spraying chemicals alone will not solve the problem we move on to step two, baiting.  Ants are constantly looking for a food supply, if  you are seeing large numbers of ants inside your home chances are they have found a food supply and aided by pheromones invited the entire colony.  We train our techs to use the ants biology against them by placing bait in the high traffic areas.  Basically we supply them with a poison pill designed to destroy the colony as they share the bounty of their search.

Baiting is a critical step in destroying an ant colony, however rarely does it work entirely as a stand alone approach, and thus step actually attacking the ant colony.  When possible we apply two types of control, liquid and granules.  The liquid chemical is instant death with a residual affect that will continue to control the ants for weeks.  The granules are a similar chemistry but their formulation allows them to remain in place for months and ultimately are what destroys the colony solving your issue with carpenter ants.

Simply stated to solve your ant, especially carpenter ant problem just call Gateway Pest Control at (636) 525-1008 or (314) 291-7622
