Ant Removal & Control

Pavement Ants

Pavement Ants (Little Brown Ants) nest primarily under homes that are either partially or entirely on a slab. They LOVE to find food crumbs inside of your home and will often be seen in mass numbers. Colonies can also set up shop in crawl spaces and along with exterior foundations of a home. They are also seen pushing up dirt on cement structures such as sidewalks, driveways, and patios. Activity with these ants is year-round, and it is not uncommon to see the most activity during colder months when they forage more to the inside of the home.

Ant Treatments

Pavement Ants

 Our ants treatment will quickly end the activity inside of your home, and treatment to the exterior will help prevent new colonies from entering. This service comes with a 6-Month Guarantee and detailed inspection and recommendations. You can also receive a “General crawling insect” treatment that not only covers pavement ants, but all the other common crawling insects such as spiders, centipedes, millipedes, pill bugs, sow bugs, earwigs, misc beetles, and woods roaches.

Ants Odorous House Ants

Odorous house ants are relatively new to SE Michigan.
There has been a dramatic rise in the number of calls for them over the last two years. Usually seen in high numbers, Odorous house ants are small brownish/black ants found usually in water areas. They will have a distinct travel pattern as they leave behind a “chemical” trail for the other ants to follow. Activity/Movement in straight lines (or very close to it) heading toward the food and water they are foraging to…..then leaving similarly. You will see them crawling up and down cabinets, on walls, into gaps in the baseboards, etc. They like to nest in water-damaged wood-like Carpenter ants but have also been seen nesting in small wood pieces such as kitchen drawer frames, thick trim boards, and wood landscape ties. Our combination of strategic residual treatment and baits will eliminate the population quickly.

Ants - Acrobat

Characterized by a distinctive heart-shaped gaster, ( Back End ) these ants generally live outdoors in dark, moist places. Acrobat ants don’t eat wood, but they will almost always be nesting in water damaged wood INSIDE or ON the home. But they can also be found in decaying trees, cut or rotting wood, or damp railroad ties.

How do I get rid of Acrobat ants?

Most people try ant bait stations where they see acrobat ants, which are hit or miss and may take several days before noticing a reduction of the colony. If the area is heavily infested, we highly recommend our perimeter treatment applied around your foundation by one of our pest control professionals. The pest technician will identify all the entry points and list them for your review on our inspection report as well as how to close those entry points. Having CJB pest-proofing your home is available, and quotes can be given at the time of service.
