Ant Control & Extermination
Now controlling Ants in Modesto, Manteca, Oakdale & Turlock!
Ants are an invasive pest that feed on and contaminate food, infest structures, and in some cases, inflict bites or stings. Ants are one of the biggest nuisance pests because they can easily enter through small cracks and crevices anywhere in and around your home. Ants find their way inside for a variety of reasons all year long in California. In the Modesto area, it is common for ants to move inside when there are rapid weather changes such as heat after a cold spell, excessive rain or excessive heat.
Insecticide and baits are effective ways to remove an ant problem, but the best method of controlling ants is to find the nest and destroy the queen. Termidor has been proven to effectively treat ant infestations and destroy nests. Ant nests are typically outside the structure in the ground surrounding the property. The key to controlling ants is to target them where they live, which is exactly what Termidor does. We apply Termidor to the outside exterior foundation walls of your house, creating a treated area of protection. Termidor is a long lasting pesticide that attaches itself to the ants and is then carried into the nest. Ants communicate by licking each other and in doing so, they transfer Termidor throughout the colony, killing the nest.
What is Termidor?
Termidor is a professionally applied ant-specific pest control product. Termidor is highly effective at killing ants because unlike other pesticides, Termidor is non-repellent.
How is Termidor different than typical pesticides?
"Do-it-yourself’ ant control efforts can actually make things worse. In fact, most over-the-counter ant sprays and repellents can cause a phenomenon called "budding," in which foraging ants, separated from their nest and queen, will actually start new colonies.
Termidor is an advanced undetectable treatment that is applied outside your home. Ants never know it’s there, so they can’t react to it or avoid it. Instead, they pick up Termidor and spread it to the other ants in their colony.
For the best results in treating ants, Onstar Pest Control recommends beginning a regular preventative pest program. We offer monthly, bi-monthly and quarterly services. Call today for more information about our ant treatments!
