- Observing a large number of live ants in the kitchen or other areas where food may be present
- Observing ant trails. Ants leave behind a pheromone in these trails. Pheromones attract additional insects to what may be a potential food source.
- Noticing an ant nest site in the vicinity of your home. These nest sites resemble a pile of soil or dirt.

Types of Ants Controlled and Exterminated
Garrie Pest Control offers ant control treatment for a wide variety of ant infestations. These include:
Workers and queens are reddish to black in color. Workers are wingless and 1/8” to 1/2” in length, whereas the queens are a bit larger with wings. Queens will lose their wings after mating with the males.
Colonies comprise 1,000 to 15,000 workers. They feed on human food. They are capable of destroying wooden structures and furniture.
This is based on finding the source and the nest. It can involve moisture elimination, removing debris and mechanical alterations. Carpenter ant control can be difficult, thus requiring an integrated management program. If you have questions or want to schedule an estimate, give us a call at 833-521-9737 and we will be happy to help you.
Workers are yellow in color and approx. 4mm in length without wings. Swarmers are dark reddish/yellow to light brown in color and approx. 8mm in length with wings.
They come up from the soil, so typically their colonies will have soil mounds around the opening. Swarmers can enter homes through cracks or door openings.
Invading the colony with pesticides
When threatened or killed, these ants emit a citronella odor.
Pavement (Slab) ants
Workers have dark brown/reddish bodies and light-colored legs and are approx. 1.5mm to 3.2mm. Swarmers are approx. twice the size
These ants form trails and take over structures in search of a food source. Pavement ants typically feed on meat and grease. The workers can bite and sting but are generally not aggressive pests.
The primary treatment includes finding the colonies and invading them with insecticides. Further treatment includes sealing any cracks and holes in the exterior walls and removing any waste on the exterior where the ants may nest.
Yellow to light brown in color and about 1.5mm in length. These ants do now swarm; however, the females mate within the nest, creating new colonies in other locations.
Pharaoh ants prefer to nest within walls, wall sockets, attics, behind baseboards and furniture. These ants feed on other insects, meats, greases, syrups, fruit jellies, etc.
We start by placing bait stations where the ants are currently active and expected to be active. Frequent monitoring of the bait stations is vital to be sure the ants are “taking the bait” rather than forming their nests in other locations.
