The Science

Risks of Ants

Learn all about ants

Food Contamination

Ants may carry and transmit bacterial and fungal organisms that are serious disease pathogens and can be spread around your food or pantry.

Property Damage

Acrobat ants and carpenter ants build their nests in damp or decaying wood. Homes with moisture issues are prime targets for carpenter ants.

Harmful Bites and Stings

Ants can bite when they feel threatened, and a person who is highly allergic to wasp and bee stings may also be allergic to ant stings.

Thorough Inspection

An Orkin technician will make a thorough inspection of your property, locating the ant development sites and nests.

Ant Treatments

Ant treatment may include a combination of insecticides and other products for use in the ant's nesting sites and places where they are active.

Prevent Ants From Returning

Orkin technicians will recommend sealing entry points, cracks and crevices if they discover ant activity both outside and inside your home.
