As one of the most common pests found in Charlottesville, Virginia area homes, ants are abundant in the spring and summer months. Ants are extremely social insects that operate in teams to locate food in your home to bring back to their colony. Because of this, one ant in your home almost always means hundreds more are lurking around the corner.
Pest Authority of Charlottesville is here to help with all your ant infestation problems. By applying our Barrier 360 treatment to the exterior of your home or business, our pest control service will stop ant infestations before they begin. Barrier 360 creates an ant-proof boundary that prevents the ants from entering your home or business. Although Barrier 360 is effective against most types of ants, fire ants and carpenter ants may require specialized treatment.
