Ant Control Services in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland

Our team offers effective pest control methods for ant infestations—a common problem in Northern Virginia, D.C. Metro, and Maryland. The main reason is that ants are exceptionally skilled at squeezing through tiny cracks and crevices. These pests are motivated by food and shelter, making their homes in your pantry or house foundation.

How to Identify an Ant Infestation

House Ants and Carpenter Ants are the most common home invaders.

A household ant

You can identify House Ants by their small black bodies. They are also known as Sugar Ants and are commonly found in kitchens and bathrooms. These ants can be a problem year-round but often become more noticeable during the spring and summer when temperature and groundwater levels rise. Determine if house/sugar ants are around by examining any exposed food left out, like dog or cat food.

Carpenter Ants are black, brown, or red ants found throughout your home. Unlike termites, they do not eat wood but hollow out beams to create colonies and nests. Carpenter Ants are giant and are often active at night, significantly damaging the structure of your home while you sleep.


Tips for Preventing Ants

  • Clean up any crumbs and spills immediately.
  • Use vinegar-based cleaning products. They effectively eliminate the pheromone trails that ants leave behind.
  • Take out the trash frequently.
  • Store food in airtight containers.
  • Store food, including uneaten pet food.
  • Repair any holes or gaps around the exterior and interior of your home.
  • Mow the lawn and trim trees that surround the house.
  • Keep home foundation, mortar, and weather-protective measures up to date and repaired.
