Austin Ant Control

The Importance of Controlling Ants on Your Property

The moment you have begun to suspect there may be an ant invasion on your property, you need to get in touch with a reliable service for residential ant control. Even though ants are tiny in size, they breed at an exponential rate. You may think that there are only a few ants, but in reality, a large colony is hidden just beneath the surface, ready to erupt on your lawn or in your house. 

Without proper control through frequent treatments and scheduled checkups, these insects can destroy your garden, gnaw their way through fabric and insulation, and transmit diseases to you and household members by tracking tiny bits of feces and contaminants throughout your food.

Preventing Ants on Your Property

One of the best ways to avoid having an invasion is by preventing ants from being attracted to your home. Our experts from A-Tex Pest Management know many tricks for eliminating the kinds of environments that draw these pesky insects. We can show you how to identify areas with extra moisture and stagnant water or find cracks and holes which need to be sealed to prevent ants from entering.

For ant control you can rely on in Austin, TX give A-Tex Pest Management a call today at 512-714-3383!

Common Signs of Ant Infestations

Ant infestations can be quite pesky! Here are some common signs to keep an eye out for:

  • Visible Trails: If you spot lines or trails of ants, especially leading to food sources, that's a clear sign of their presence.
  • Nests or Mounds: Outdoors, ants may build nests in soil, under rocks, or in pavement cracks. Inside, they might nest in walls, insulation, or under floors.
  • Indoor Sightings: Finding ants indoors, particularly in kitchens, pantries, or near food sources, suggests an infestation.
  • Debris Piles: Some ants leave tiny piles of debris near entry points, consisting of wood shavings, soil, or insulation.
  • Wood Damage: Carpenter ants, especially, may excavate wood, leaving behind small holes or piles of sawdust.
  • Audible Signs: Sometimes, you may hear rustling or crackling sounds from walls or ceilings where ants are active.
  • Musty Odor: Carpenter ants emit a strong, musty odor when disturbed or when their nests are disturbed.
  • Plant Damage: Certain ants, like fire ants, can harm plants by tunneling through soil or feeding on roots.
  • Frass Trails: Carpenter ants often leave behind "frass," resembling sawdust or wood shavings, near their nest sites.
  • Dead Ants: Discovering dead ants, especially in large numbers, indicates a nearby nest or colony.

Keeping an eye out for these signs can help you address ant infestations promptly.
