OPC Pest July Ant Blog - Sanitation

When ants enter your building, they’re looking for food. Our professionals will do a thorough inspection of your property, inside and outside, to identify any problem areas that might be attracting ants.

OPC Pest July Ant Blog - Environmental Factors

Many outdoor factors can make it easy for ants to thrive and give them easy access to your building. Tree or bush branches that touch your building can act as a highway for ants. Weeds and other vegetation can give ants harborage. Our professionals will inspect and analyze the property surrounding your facility and let you know what, if any, modifications need to be made.

OPC Pest July Ant Blog - Species Identification

Knowing what species of ant we’re dealing with will determine which ant management methods will be most effective. Certain species of ants are more apt to enter your building looking for food. Others, such as carpenter ants, are more interested in nesting in wood, which causes damage to the structure. Our professionals will identify what kind of ants you have and create a plan to remove them. If you have any damage to your property, a licensed OPC handyman can fix that, too.

Ant sprays will kill the ants you see, but they won’t solve an ant infestation. Most over-the-counter ant sprays don’t have a lasting effect and, typically, ants will just find another way in, avoiding the treated area. Plus their colonies, which can be within your walls or deep underground outside, can’t be effectively treated with over-the-counter sprays. Our professionals will locate their colonies and treat them so they go away for good.

At OPC Pest Services, we’ve been helping our residential and commercial customers with ant control and other pest management services since 1972. Here are some of the industries we serve:

Pamela Troutman
"We have been OPC customers for several years. They check for termites and we also have the internal check for bugs. They have immediately responded when we have had a problem especially with silverfish. This year we added the mosquito control. The mosquito population is definitely down and a side benefit is we have no flies this year. OPC is easy to deal with and professional in dealing with our pests. Watch out bugs, we are OPC customers.” "
