Because you care for your family and pets, it's easy to see why you need the right pest control services. You don't want to use anything that could leave a dangerous residue on places where children or pets touch. You also don't want to rely on DIY options that might not do the job effectively. That can get expensive and frustrating, without really giving you any kind of results. The best way to handle your ant problem is with a pet friendly solution and a professional exterminating company that understands the value of healthy, sustainable, and eco-friendly solutions to your pest concerns.
Hiring an exterminator who's familiar with the unique pest and ant challenges of North Carolina and South Carolina is important. Ants are ants everywhere, but there are different species and types of ants, too. If you hire someone who isn't familiar with what's locally seen, you might not get a pet friendly solution to your ant problem that actually works. It's very important to understand what type of ants you have in your home, so you can work on getting rid of them as quickly and efficiently as possible. We can help you identify the type of ants you have, and can work with you to find solutions that fit your life.
By avoiding harsh chemicals and choosing more natural solutions, we can reduce the risk to children and pets while still making sure ants are encouraged to leave your home and not return. Depending on where they're getting in and what they're looking for, it may be necessary to take more than one approach to getting rid of them and keeping them out. If we see places where there are openings into your home these can be sealed, and we can use chemicals to get rid of the ants in areas where children and pets won't be finding them to reduce the risk of contact.
No matter what time of year it is, ants can try to invade your home. Even in the winter months when many ants aren't out and moving around too much there are still some that are active. If they find that you have something in your home they want, such as food or warmth, they'll try to get in and see what you can offer them. Once they get a foothold, they're a little bit harder to get rid of then when they first arrive, so it's better to catch them early no matter the time of year they first appear. At Clint Miller Exterminating, we are here and ready to help any time of year, so you can have a pet friendly and efficient solution to your ant problems.
