SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – AM/PM Exterminators is currently providing black ant removal services for residences and Commercial businesses in the area that are experiencing infestations due to shifts in the weather.
The Problem with Black Ant Infestations
Black ants are one of the most common insect pests found in homes or businesses in the Seattle area. These ants are roughly .1 inch long and tend to live in large colonies around patios and driveways of Seattle homes. During the summer, ants will often be content to remain outside, but as the weather begins to shift with the arrival of fall, ants will often begin to explore, looking for food.
Scout ants find their way into homes or business buildings, and if they manage to find crumbs, grease and other debris, they will attract more ants, leading to infestations indoors. While most black ants are not harmful to property, humans or pets, they are a nuisance, and most homeowners want to eliminate them as soon as they are spotted.
Professional Ant Removal Services
Often, ant infestations in Seattle arise from both an outdoor colony and an indoor one. Most Business or homeowners are not equipped to locate colonies to treat ants, making it necessary to seek out professional ant removal services.
AM/PM Exterminators offers a complete ant removal service that involves locating colonies both indoors and outdoors and completely eliminating both. This not only eliminates the present indoor infestation, but it also greatly reduces the likelihood of ants returning in the near future. Maintenance packages are also available to periodically treat for black ants and prevent their return.
Exterminators Preventing Ants Entry in Buildings and businesses
If ants can find their way into a Seattle home or business once, they are likely to do it again in the future. As a result, AM/PM Exterminators provides Property or homeowners with assistance identifying possible points of entry for ants.
The ant removal pest control professionals who work for the company fully inspect homes and identify areas like cracks in walls or gaps under windows that ants can exploit. By identifying these problems and recommending solutions for repairs, the exterminators help homeowners or commercial businesses work proactively to keep ants out.
Cost of Ant Removal
Many consumers put off calling a professional exterminator due to concerns about costs. Homeowners who want to save money may try to rely on DIY ant removal methods, many of which are ineffective.
Explained Daniel Hunts, owner of AM/PM Exterminators, “We get a lot of calls from homeowners who have tried several times to get rid of black ants with ant traps and liquid ant killers. Once we quote them the price for our services, they usually say that it’s similar to what they ended up paying for the DIY products that they purchased. That’s why we strongly urge homeowners to call us first.”
In addition to providing black ant exterminator service for the greater Seattle area, AM/PM Exterminators also serves the Kirkland, Issaquah, Mercer island, Bellevue, Woodinville, Bothell, Redmond, Kent and Renton areas. The company offers commercial ant removal services as well as services for residential ant removal.
