1. Ant Control

Our Approach to Ant Control in Maryland, D.C., and Virgina Homes

Getting rid of an ant infestation in a Washington D.C. row home, or any other residence, is precisely what our pest control experts are trained to do. Whether you have ants out on your lawn, in the kitchen, or in your bathroom, the key to an ant-free home is finding and eliminating the nest.

In many cases, several ant nests will be located on a single property, often building their colonies inside walls, or under patios, causing problems with ants in your house year-round.

At American Pest we employ a holistic approach to home ant control.  We believe that every house is as unique as the pest problems within it. 

When you hire one of our ant exterminators, you get a high-quality individual who has been trained in the biology of ants, who will come to your home armed with all the supplies necessary to get the job done right. He or she will talk with you about your ant problem, provide a thorough inspection, and begin treatments right away.

 

Our Ant Control Elimination Process Includes:

Step 1: Identifying the type of ant invading your home or business

Step 2: Locating and eliminating nesting sites indoors and on the exterior

Step 3: Treating the exterior along the foundation and other areas that are appealing to ant colonies

Step 4: Spraying ant trails and hills outside routinely to prevent recurrent infestations

Whether your ant problems are large or small, our service pros are quick to identify and target treatments based on an ant’s unique biology, preferred habitat, and response to treatment methods such as baiting or sprays.

Not sure which treatment is right for you? No problem! Let our top-rated pest control technicians share their experiences with you. Armed with your knowledge of your home, we can develop a solution that is safe, effective, and intelligent.

Types Of Ants We Treat In D.C., Maryland And Virginia

There are many types of ants you may encounter indoors or outside your D.C. home and throughout Maryland and Virginia. Regardless of infestation size, these three species are among the top loathed by our clients:

Best Ant Control Solutions Inside The House

When it comes to finding the best pest control company to remove ants from inside your home and keep them out, we believe our ant control professionals are the best in class!

When ants make their way into your home they will typically look for one of three things: food, moisture, and shelter. Therefore, it’s not uncommon for ant nests to be located inside a wall, under hardwood floors, and even in a second-story bathroom.

At times when the nest cannot be easily accessed, your pest control professional may recommend a complex solution consistent with using specialized ant baits on the inside of the home in conjunction with ant spray treatments on the outside.

Exterminators using dual or multifaceted approaches experience high success in killing all the ants within the nest and not just the ants that you see roaming around your house.

E. Smith - Rockville, MD

 I wanted to write to say how impressed I am with your entire crew and the general way you operate. Everyone who entered my home was sympathetic, sensitive, competent, and respectful. I think what stands out was the way your company understood, and expressed in its own way, the psychological damage that bed bugs inflict.
