Ant Control Your Hometown Exterminator

Ant Control in Sumter & Lake County, FL

Ants adapt well to most ecosystems and may nest in the ground, in wood structures, or within buildings. When ants enter a property, they can contaminate foods and damage structures. They scavenge for food in various places, including trash bins that can carry bacteria and pathogens. A single colony can consist of thousands or even millions of individual ants, making them hard to control.

At BPS, our services can help control active ant infestations and provide long-term prevention. Our family-oriented approach means we treat each client's concerns as our own. We prioritize using green, organic pest control products that are safe for your family and pets.

Causes of Ant Infestation

Ants are constantly looking for resources to support their colonies, and the environment within your property may attract them. Common factors leading to ant infestation include:

  • Leftover food particles and residues
  • Spilled sugary substances and fruit remains
  • Grease splatters and protein sources
  • Excess moisture from leaks and damp areas
  • Tiny openings around doors, windows, and utility lines
  • Cluttered spaces with hiding spots and nesting areas
  • Overwatered indoor plants with moist soil
  • Unsealed trash cans with food waste
  • Dense vegetation, mulch, and garden debris near buildings
  • Ant problems in neighboring properties

Common Types of Ants 

Recognizing the common types in the area can help identify and address potential infestations more effectively. Common types of ants in Sumter County, Lake County, and the surrounding communities include:

  • Acrobat ants often nest outdoors in soil, under stones, or in wood, but they can enter buildings through cracks and crevices.
  • Argentines are tiny, dark-brown ants that form large colonies with multiple queens.
  • Carpenter ants do not eat wood, but their nesting activities can compromise the structural integrity of buildings.
  • Fire ants build large, mounded nests and can be a significant concern for outdoor activities.
  • Odorous ants are attracted to moisture and can be found in kitchens and bathrooms.
  • Pavement ants build their nests in cracks in pavement or under stones, often seen trailing along sidewalks or driveways.
  • Pharaoh ants can be difficult to control due to their ability to create multiple nests throughout a structure.

Our Ant Control Methods

We provide a comprehensive and environmentally conscious approach to ant control. Our methods prioritize safety while effectively targeting the ant colonies that threaten your property. 

  • Baiting systems: We use specialized baiting systems that attract ants with a food source. Once the ants consume the bait, they carry it back to the colony, eliminating the queen and the rest of the ants.
  • Non-repellent insecticides: Our technicians apply non-repellent insecticides, allowing ants to come into contact with the treatment and transfer it to the colony, leading to its collapse.
  • Granular treatments: We apply granular treatments to disrupt the ants' natural behavior and eliminate the colony over time.
  • Exclusion techniques: We implement exclusion techniques such as sealing cracks and crevices, installing door sweeps, and ensuring proper drainage around your property.
  • Monitoring and maintenance: After the initial treatment, we provide ongoing monitoring and maintenance to prevent future infestations. 

Our commitment to safety, effectiveness, and environmental responsibility is unwavering. At BPS, we can eliminate existing colonies and proactively prevent their return.
