Residential & Commercial Ant Control Exterminator
Both homes and businesses are susceptible to an ant infestation. These savvy pests will hunt relentlessly to find a source of food and leave a pheromone trail on their way to ensure the rest of the colony can follow. Once the queen and her colony have set up home in your property, she can lay up to 800 eggs per day, leading to a severe infestation quickly. Our exterminators have over 25 years of experience, giving our pest control company the knowledge needed to understand ant behavior and a plethora of experience dealing with all types of ant species. Richmond Pest Control will take this understanding and knowledge to deliver a successful extermination treatment & prevention plan.

Ant Control FAQ for Homeowners & Businesses
How did I get ants in my home or business?
As with most pest species, the most common reason why ants enter your property is to search for food and seek shelter. If they decide your home is a good, consistent source for food, ants will build their nest within the wooden structures.
Is there a certain time of year when ants invade?
Ants are most prevalent in the spring and summer when they are out actively seeking food and water sources. It is crucial you get rid of these nuisance pests before the cold weather hits, otherwise they’ll spend the winter nesting in your home!
Why are ants hard to get rid of?
Ants work together to support the colony, which means you’ll never just spot a single ant in your home or business. Once they find a reliable source of food, water & shelter, they release pheromones that signal the rest of the ants to follow. Even if you eliminate the source of food, the scent may still be strong enough to continue attracting more ants!
Can ants damage my home or cause health issues?
Regarding spreading disease, ants are considered a nuisance pest and do not pose any threat to humans or animals. Carpenter ants feed on damp and rotten wood and can cause structural damage if not detected and exterminated quickly.
What’s the best way to get rid of ants?
A highly effective DIY method is ant baits, which work by attracting ants who eat the bait and bring the poison back to the nest. This ensures you eliminate the entire colony. Click here for helpful DIY ant pest control methods.
