Ant Control in Columbia SC
Here in South Carolina we have 183 species of ants – many of which love to invade our homes in search of food or to build colonies. DIY solutions abound, but the trouble is that different species require different treatments. Whether you’ve got fire ant mounds in your yard or Argentine ants on your countertops, our professional pest control technicians will get rid of your ants!
Our Ant Control Process
The process begins with a thorough inspection, where we determine what sort of ant problem you have, where they are coming from, and why they are entering your home.
Application of Ant Treatment
Depending on the type of ant infestation present, your ants will be treated with ant bait traps, sprays, or granules by our Clemson Extension 7A certified technicians.
Follow-up Treatments As Needed
In many cases ant problems can be resolved with a single treatment – however we aren’t finished until your ant problem is fully resolved and will return as needed.

What types of ants do you commonly treat?
We treat all kinds of ant species, including but not limited to, carpenter ants, imported fire ants, sugar ants, pavement ants, odorous house ants, and pharaoh ants. Different species require specialized treatment plans to effectively manage the infestation.
Can you treat my lawn for fire ant hills?
Yes, we are able to apply insecticides to treat outdoor ant infestations.
How soon can I expect to see results after my ant treatment?
You will notice significant results within a day or two, however it may take up to two weeks to see comprehensive control. Your technician will be able to give you a more precise estimate based on the type of ant present and the severity of your infestation.
Is the treatment safe for pets and children?
Safety is our top priority. All of the ant control products we use are EPA-approved and, when applied by our licensed and trained technicians, pose minimal risk to pets and humans. Depending on the type of treatment that is required, your technician may advise you to keep pets and children away from the treated area for a short period of time after the application.
How long do the ant control treatments last?
The longevity of ant control treatments varies depending on the method used and the severity of the infestation. Typically, residual treatments can last for several months but may require follow-up visits to ensure the colony has been fully eradicated.
Is there a way to prevent future ant infestations?
Preventative measures can include caulking cracks and crevices where ants can enter your home, maintaining a clean environment free of easy food sources to discourage foraging, and regularly inspecting for signs of ant activity. We also offer monthly maintenance plans to help keep your property ant and pest free all year-round.
Why is killing worker ants not enough to get rid of ant infestations?
While eliminating worker ants may provide temporary relief, it does not address the root of the ant problem, which is the colony itself and the queen who resides deep within the ant nest and produces new ants. It’s important to remember that ants are social insects whose colonies may contain hundreds of thousands or even millions or individuals!
Worker ants are only the foragers; they are expendable to the colony and easily replaced. To properly control ants, targeted treatments that reach the queen and the entire colony are essential. This is why our comprehensive ant control services focus not just on immediate relief but on a lasting solution.
