Ants in Georgia & South Carolina
The most common ant species that can infest homes and yards in South Carolina and Georgia include:
- Fire ants
- Argentine ants
- Odorous house ants
- Carpenter ants
- Pavement ants
Fire ants are quite small (under 1/5 of an inch in length) and red in coloring. They build mounds and can often be found in your yard, especially in sunny spots. They can be a real nuisance with painful bites, and can pose a real threat for those that are allergic.
Carpenter ants are larger (typically between 5/8 and 1/2 inches), and are usually black in color. As you may guess by its name, this species of ant prefers to live in and feed on wood. Carpenter ants may be found in moist areas and can threaten the structural integrity of your property.
Pavement ants are the smallest type of common ant you may find around the yard, driveway or home (typically between 1/8 to 1/16 inches in length). They are black or dark red in color. While these ants usually make their homes in cracks in the pavement, they can also make their way into your home.
Regardless of the species, ants in and around the home should be dealt with sooner rather than later. For a free inspection and estimate, contact Compass Pest today!
Scientific Integrated Pest Management Solutions
Integrated Pest Management Solutions (IPM) is an approach to control ants and other pests that employs inspection, identification, and implementation of a strategy that provides the best common sense solution. Often physical, mechanical, biological, and educational methods are employed to achieve the results that are of the least human risk while effectively controlling unwanted pests.
Our IPM program focuses on three specific areas:
1) Inspecting for ants or other pests
2) Identifying ants & pests
3) Control by pest professionals
IPM bases its ant control recommendations on your unique needs. Our pest control professionals do not use a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Whether sealing cracks, removing a food or water source or, when necessary, employing traditional treatments, integrated pest management is about using best practice application methods to control ant problems.
How it works:
1) First, we evaluate the infestation and customize a treatment plan in order to avoid random pesticide application.
2) Next, we place pest monitors, when needed, in pest prone locations to accurately detect “hot-spots” of pest activity.
3) Finally, we apply a protective barrier to the outside of your home to avoid future problems. Our goal is to solve your pest problem while minimizing pesticide usage in and around your home.
Our #1 concern while ridding your home of unwanted pests common to South Carolina and Georgia like ants and other pests is the health and safety of your family and pets.
