Carpenter Ant Control

Carpenter ants are among the most common pests in the US. Despite the natural balance they bring when burrowing and nesting in dead trees, carpenter ants are linked as pests due to the damages they cause when invading a home. The invasions are usually induced from the appeal of dead wood within the home. The carpenter ants can be found indoors or outdoors near moist areas of decaying wood. Carpenter Ant Control is not difficult with the correct information and products. For more information on Carpenter Ant Control, scroll down or call us at 1-800-788-4142.

How to Get Rid of Carpenter Ants : The problem usually falls into two categories based on size

When dealing with a carpenter ant infestation, the problem usually falls into two categories based on size. It can be very difficult or really simple to eradicate. The simple version consists of an outside infestation that can be taken care of in a matter of a day or two. On the other hand, you have an indoor infestation that is more than overwhelming. Swarmers (also known as winged carpenter ants), along with workers, come up from every direction of the house. Normally, when this is apparent, after eradication of these pests, lumbers/timbers will have to be replaced.

Carpenter Ants in House

Whether you have a simple or difficult carpenter ant infestation on your hands, it is important to initiate a complete Carpenter Ant Control and Management method before it progresses to something more serious. First and foremost, you must inspect your home. How carpenter ants getting into your house? Where is the source of the problem? Once these questions are answered, you can then apply an accurate control method. For smaller size infestations, carpenter ant baits and sprays are your best bet to get rid of your pest problem. However, if the infestation is larger or the source/nest is along the inner walls of your home, you will have to go a little further before apply treatment. Drilling might be an option to get the immediate source of the problem. If you are able to reach the source without using drills or other means of dismantling, it is suggested to do so. Dust insecticides are very effective when applying treatment directly into a carpenter ant colony. A mixture of treatments is also suggested when handling a major infestation.

Q. What company should I choose one power spraying Cy kick, the other power spraying a product called demand cs. Both coming on a quarterly basis
I've decided to use a pest service on my home in Austin tx, I know the heat breaks down product as well as rains that we get in the Austin area every once in a while, I've broke my decision down to two companies, one is saying the product they will power spray is Cy-kick. The other company says they will be power spraying the product Demand cs. My main bugs that we are dealing with are scorpions, spiders, Beatles, and an occasional wasp.. Both companies are around the same price both wanting to come out quarterly. What's the main differences and if you were in my shoes and with your expertise, which product would you choose to be treated on your home for those specific issues.
A.   We recommend using Demand CS because it is a micro-encapsulated product. Therefore, Demand CS has a longer residual time.
