While ants may be small, they can become a big nuisance when they invade our homes. These tiny insects are notorious for infiltrating kitchens, pantries, and even bedrooms in search of food and water. While their size may make them seem harmless, the sheer numbers in a colony can quickly turn a minor annoyance into a major problem. Thankfully, there are effective strategies for managing small ant infestations and keeping these tiny troublemakers at bay.

Here at Monroe Pest Control, we treat for small ants and identify possible ways that they can get into your home. One key aspect of successful small ant management is understanding their behavior and targeting key entry and foraging points. Primarily at risk are floating slab structures such as small homes, restaurants, schools, and churches. Without a raised foundation, small ants can meander through cracks in the slab, creating a direct access point into the living spaces of a home. Identifying these key areas can be crucial to eliminating a colony. Maintaining a sanitary space by cleaning up food crumbs, and spills, and even keeping food sealed can reduce the appeal of your home to these unwanted critters.

Our proven pest management solutions can swiftly and efficiently eliminate these unwanted visitors. Our truck-mounted power sprayers are used during exterior applications to not only ward off small ants but are also ideal for preventing other nuisance insects from entering buildings. This treatment paired with our interior insecticide spray and application of gel baits in key cracks and crevices is necessary in the strategic process of ridding a home of small ant issues.
