Protect Your Home from Ants with Guardian Pest Control
Ants usually enter your home seeking out food and shelter. If you have left food out on the counter or leave your garbage uncovered, this can attract ants into your home. It is important to understand that just treating the ants that you see in your home is usually insufficient in treating the actual infestation. When you enlist our help, we track down the source of the infestation - usually a nearby colony - and ensure that the colony is properly treated, cutting off the infestation at the source. This is the only way to ensure that ants will stop entering your home.

Signs You Have an Ant Infestation
Ant infestations can quickly spiral out of control if not addressed promptly. These tiny pests can infiltrate homes in search of food, water, and shelter, often establishing colonies in hard-to-reach places. Detecting the signs of an ant infestation early on is crucial to prevent further invasion and minimize damage to your property. By being aware of the indicators, you can take appropriate action to eradicate the infestation before it becomes unmanageable.
Here are some common signs that you have an ant infestation:
- Trails of ants: If you notice lines or trails of ants marching across your floors, walls, or countertops, it's likely that you have an ant infestation.
- Piles of frass: Ants often leave behind piles of debris, known as frass, near their nests, which may consist of wood shavings, soil, or other materials.
- Rustling sounds: In some cases, you may hear rustling or scratching sounds coming from inside walls or ceilings, indicating the presence of an ant colony.
- Visible nests: Keep an eye out for ant nests, which can be found in soil, mulch, or cracks in walls, particularly in outdoor areas.
- Damage to wood: Certain ant species, such as carpenter ants, excavate wood to build their nests, leading to structural damage over time.
- Presence of winged ants: Swarms of winged ants indoors or near your home are a sign of a mature ant colony that may be reproducing.
