We handle all pests – professionally, quickly, and using the best practices in the industry.
We’ll do an on-site assessment at no cost to you, and recommend a treatment plan along with a quote. When you call us, you’ll be talking to someone local who knows the area and the best way to treat for native pests. We’ll create a plan custom tailored to your preferences and budget, too.
For handling ant infestations, we have a range of tools and pesticides at our disposal, meaning we’ll use the right treatments for you to remove the ants from your home or business.
Our number one goal as exterminators is to eliminate pests in the most efficient, environmentally conscious way when possible.
There are three common species of ant you’re most likely to see inside or outside in the Lancaster and York County areas.
1. The Carpenter Ant
These large black ants love making their nests in wood, especially damp floorboards, lumber, wooden countertops, and other wood surfaces. If the wood is damp, the carpenter ants will take it as a sign to move in. They’ll use their mandibles to remove bits of the wood to create their nests, and that can lead to significant damage to property, furniture, and more.
2. The Pavement Ant
If you’ve seen small reddish brown or black ants, they were probably pavement ants. These tiny brown ants make their homes in the cracks and crevices of pavements, stone landscape pavers, and even in the slab foundations of a building.
3. The Odorous House Ant
These are perhaps the most common ant to be found in households and buildings. These small ants range from dark brown to black in color and get their name from the unpleasant smell they emit when crushed.
