How to get rid of Ants?

Inspection and identification is the first and foremost step in getting pest problems under control. Some of the types of ants are Acrobat Ants, Argentine Ants, Bigheaded Ants, Carpenter Ants, Citronella Ants, Field ants, Fire Ants, Ghost Ants, Harvester Ants, Odorous Ants, Pavement Ants, Pharaoh Ants, and Thief Ants.

Ants possess the ability to infiltrate even the smallest openings, drawn by the allure of water and food items, whether sweet or oily, stored in kitchen pantries or storage spaces. They leave behind an undetectable chemical path infused with pheromones, guiding fellow ants towards discovered food sources. Their nesting spots can vary widely, ranging from within the confines of your home to outdoor areas like lawns, walls, tree stumps, and even beneath foundations.

DIY solutions kill only the ants your see. Some truly effective treatments can penetrate and destroy nests to help prevent these pests from returning. Also, home remedies don’t account for the fact that different kinds of ant infestations require different treatments.

These kinds of insects are known to be one of the most difficult to remove from the house.

For those facing an infestation, it’s advisable to reach out to a pest control expert to schedule a consultation. These professionals are equipped not just to tackle existing infestations but also to implement preventive measures against future occurrences. Booking a complimentary home inspection can be both time-saving and cost-effective.


The ants life cycle consist of four stages, including egg, larvae, pupae and adult. This is known as complete metamorphosis. There is an estimated total of 22,000 species of ants classified.

They form colonies which can number up to 300,000 or 500,000. The whole colonies can also uproot and relocate quickly when threatened. A colony can live a relatively long lifetime. Worker ants may live seven years, and the queen may live as long as 15 years.

    "A few months back I decided that I wanted to check on different prices of pest control because I felt that I was paying to much with another company. I ended up finding Care Free Pest Control Solutions through my search. I had spoken to Tim over the phone, he was very polite and took the time to speak with me. I didn't feel rushed or as if someone just wanted to make money. Tim came out to the house for a basic routine check and did a wonderful job he even went above and beyond his job of duty. I had told him that my mom had a rat problem at her house. He took the time to make another appointment with me to meet at my moms house and helped recommend what she needed to do in order to get rid of this problem. She was so impressed with his thoughtfulness to take the time and step out of his regular services that she asked for him to become his routinely pest service guy. I highly recommend Care Free Pest Solutions as they provide the every day, to the difficult to even going above and beyond the normal job of duty."
