Controlling ants can be very hard to do. If left untreated, they can cause a home owner many problems, including the expense of fixing wood they destroy. Ants can enter a home just about anywhere, but most often enter near a food and water source. Store bought products only treat the ants you can see, but there are always more hidden in your home. Ants can nest in walls, electrical boxes, or under the home and have colonies of up to 500,000, where they can live for several years. The nest has to be killed off to control the problem and certain ants require different treatments. For guaranteed results, have a Bug-A-Way certified and licensed technician eradicate your ant infestations.
