Envirotech Pest Control is your number one source for top notch ant control service. Ants are the most common insect that humans will come into contact with inside of their homes. Keeping your home safe from ants can become a difficult task due to the skillful techniques that ants use to get into your home. An ant can fit through the tiniest crack or crevice they can locate on the outside of your home. Whether it is from the roof or closer to the foundation of your home, ants will find a way to get inside. Once inside of your home, ants will immediately begin searching for a reliable food and water source. These areas usually include your kitchen, underneath a sink or even your shower. Envirotech Pest Control is familiar with all of the areas that ants will gather to within your home.
Colorado is home to many different species of ants, however there is one ant species in Colorado that is fiercer than others and that is the black carpenter ant. Black carpenter ants are quite large when compared to other species and they are excellent builders. Carpenter ants do not eat wood, but they live inside of the wood, making them sometimes difficult to locate for home owners. Envirotech Pest Control specializes in locating black carpenter ants that have gained access into your home. One of the biggest threats that black carpenter ants pose is a serious infestation. Black carpenter ants can build colonies of up to 10,000 ants inside of the walls of your home. Black carpenter ant infestations can cause a great deal of damage to your home and are best removed by a professional pest technician from Envirotech Pest Control.
The common carpenter ant is also a prominent nuisance to home owners in Colorado. While it doesn’t grow to be quite as large as the black carpenter ant, the common carpenter ant can still inflict a great deal of damage. Carpenter ants are most active during the summer in Colorado and they are very active during the night time. Like the black carpenter ant, the common carpenter ant does not eat wood; they just live inside of it. Carpenter ants can easily gain access into your home, burrow through the wood (compromising its structural integrity) and before you know it, you have a carpenter ant infestation on your hands. The best way to keep carpenter ants out of your home is to hire Envirotech Pest Control to regularly service your home and keep carpenter ants away.
