Professional Ant Treatment in Nashville

Ants are fearless critters, perfectly willing to creep and crawl across your kitchen countertops in search of food—a real nuisance in Nashville and surrounding areas in Davidson County. If you see just a couple of them, there’s plenty more (perhaps millions more!) lurking beneath the surface.

Ant Species in Nashville

Plenty of ant species call Nashville home, and our skilled exterminators know how to identify and treat them. Here are some of the most common:

  • Carpenter ants: Black or red or a mixture of both, these ants seldom are bigger than half an inch. They chew through woodwork, particularly old, moist wood. Our ant control specialists will identify them by the holes they create, the sawdust they leave, and insect parts.
  • Odorous house ants: Brown or black, these tiny ants are hard to spot. Odorous house ants hide under wood and beside standing water, and are drawn by sweets lying around.
  • Fire ants: Petite and red, these ants create easier-to-find nesting mounds: two- to four-feet wide. Fire ants can also sting. Outdoors, you can try to stay away from them, but this doesn’t work once they get inside your Nashville home. 

Other problematic ants found in Nashville include Argentine ants, acrobat ants, crazy ants, and more. Once a queen sets down roots, workers will seek out food in the surrounding area, and colonies can quickly expand. 

Our pet-safe ant control uses the pathways created by ants against them, getting our bait into the heart of the colony. 

Stop Ants Before They Enter Your Nashville Home

Our best ant prevention tips include the following: 

  • Place food in tightly-lidded containers, especially candy and other sweets.
  • Regularly clean, dust, and wipe up crumbs.
  • Seal off gaps, cracks, and holes in your home.

Here are some things to avoid:

  • Avoid piling firewood in or near your home.
  • Blocking outdoor ant highways or spraying water on them seldom works. 
  • Don’t interfere with visible ant mounds.
