COMMERCIAL ANT CONTROL
When ants become active at your business or facility, often the first impulse is to respond with a show of force – for example, by attacking columns of invading ants with whatever sprays and baits are commercially available. As pest professionals who have many years of experience dealing with ant problems in commercial facilities and other places of business, we’ve learned that what works much more effectively than brute force is to address the problem systematically and strategically, using proven integrated pest management (IPM) principles.
Clark’s commercial pest technicians are extensively trained to inspect first and identify the specific species at hand – as not all ants are the same, and the treatment that works to control one species may not work to control another, and sometimes can make a problem much worse. Then, based on deep knowledge of that species, we will design a program that not only controls the ant colony, but addresses whatever underlying conditions are attracting the ants and are enabling them to thrive at your facility or place of business. Putting this total picture together and making it work for you is what Clark Pest Control does best.
Three areas your ant control technician will address:
- Exclusion: How are ants getting in? And: what can be done to keep them out? We step back to take in the big picture, then zero in on the details to find all the points where ants are getting in so that their routes indoors can be blocked.
- Sanitation: What is it inside your facility or place of business that is attracting ants? We figure out what’s drawing the target pest inside and then advise you on housekeeping practices and corrective actions you can put into action that will make your interior spaces less attractive to these invasive social insects.
- Environmental modification: What outdoor factors create conditions conducive to ant activity? Your facility or place of business is not an island, and the nearby environment can affect it – for example, weeds that provide harborage, or tree or bush branches touching your building that provide a highway for ants, or foliage that attracts a particular ant species that’s causing the problem (example: plants that attract honeydew-producing aphids, which in turn attract Argentine ants), or an ant colony located on a neighboring property. Our highly trained technicians will expertly analyze the environment surrounding your facility or place of business and will advise you on practical measures that can be taken to stop ant activity.
