Carpenter Ant Pest Control and Termination in Central Illinois

Nobody wants to deal with pest infestations—especially an ant infestation. Carpenter ants cause all sorts of problems, including:

  • Structural damage to your home
  • Health issues
  • Food contamination
  • The spread of potentially harmful diseases
  • There’s also the uncomfortable feeling pests give us when they invade our space.

Carpenter ants in Illinois are the source of many infestation complaints for both residential and commercial property owners. There are several reasons for this, but it mainly comes down to numbers. Ants are social creatures that live together in large numbers, so they’re hard to miss.

Plus, many ant species call Illinois home so your home or business could become a prime space to build a colony. If you’re struggling with ants, turn to the experts at American Pest Control for carpenter ant pest control.

Why You Need Professional Ant Control

Ants are some of the hardest creatures to kill—their size alone can help them go undetected for long periods. Additionally, most ant colonies can range in number from a few hundred ants to tens of thousands. Depending on the species of ant you’re struggling with, eradication may be difficult without a professional’s help.

Some of the biggest reasons you need professional ant termination include:

  • Professionals know exactly what type of pest control is most effective on which species of ant.
  • A professional exterminator can quickly identify different species, ensuring the infestation is addressed and taken care of.
  • DIY ant control only provides temporary relief. Professional ant termination ensures that current pests are eliminated and don’t return.

If you’ve seen one or two carpenter ants around your home, it’s a sign that more are coming. Ants leave a pheromone trail that attracts other ants. Because ants work primarily in groups, they’ll follow these trails into your property. Once they’ve set up a nest, worker ants will begin foraging your food to care for young ants and their queen.

As soon as you notice ants around your property, seek out professional ant infestation control immediately.
