Ant Control

Ugh. Ants. If it feels like they are everywhere, it’s only because they are. Almost. Ants can be found below sea level in Death Valley through altitudes of more than 14,000 feet – at almost every latitude. Due to their adaptability and highly advanced sense of teamwork, ant populations today outnumber every other insect population on the planet. Mooresville, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Denver, Sherrills Ford Troutman & Statesville are not immune. Throughout the year, we play host to a wide variety of ant species:

Argentine ants (Iridomyrmex humilis)Argentine Ant Control – Easily identified by the following: if you see an ant inside your house, it is probably an Argentine. They are small, just a sixteenth of an inch, and vary in color from light to dark brown. The species made its way to the U.S. from South America via coffee ships sometime around 1890. Argentine ants are the most organized and prolific of all the local ant species. They have almost completely displaced the previous local ant dynasty, the Odorous house ants. Argentines are attracted to moisture sources: potted plants, irrigation systems, sinks, and bathrooms. They also enjoy a wide variety of the same foods you eat: honey, syrups, jellies, and they will also seek out meats. Argentine ants do not bite or sting. Call us for Argentine Ant Control.

Red Imported Fire Ant

Fire ants (Solenopsis spp.) – Ouch! Fire ant stings can be nasty, sometimes even worse than a bee sting, and much worse than fleas. Fire ants  live in small colonies and do not reproduce with the compulsion of the pesky Argentine ants. Red Imported Fire ant has recently moved into town. And “ouch” will soon become an understatement. Red Imported Fire ants inflict excruciatingly painful stings. In Texas, public playgrounds and parks have been overrun by these monsters, making it unsafe for children and families to enjoy the outdoors. Call us for Fire Ant control.

Odorous house ants (Tapinoma sessile) Odorous House Ant Control– They are named after the rotten odor they exude when crushed. Odorous house ants grow to be a little larger, on average, than the Argentine ant. But size doesn’t matter. The Odorous house ant has been displaced from much of its homeland by the highly organized Argentine ant populations. Odorous house ants do not bite or sting. Call us for Odorous House Ant control.

A+ Termite & Pest Control ant control:

At A+ Termite & Pest Control, we typically begin ant control by treating the exterior perimeter. Inside we treat all infested areas, primarily using granular formulations that we place inside the wall voids to keep ants from gaining access to the various rooms. We remove outlet and switch-plate covers and employ a special “duster” to place our products inside the walls and into areas that are removed from the general living space – and away from children and pets.

Is dinner on the house?

Carpenter ants (Camponotus modoc) – In the realm of pest management, Carpenter ants fall into a different classification than the rest of the ant family. Carpenter ants are wood-destroying organisms, not unlike termites and certain species of beetles. They get their name from their habit of entering wooden beams and carving out substantial galleries, often causing real structural damage. Carpenter ants can grow to lengths of a half-inch or more. It is not uncommon to hear a faint rustling sound within the walls of homes infested by Carpenter ants. They are also easily identified by the piles of sawdust that they leave behind. Treatment for Carpenter ants can be difficult. A licensed termite inspector is the best man for the job. He will inspect the property to determine whether the Carpenters have established a nest within the home or are just foraging for a colony based elsewhere. If the nest is within the home, a licensed termite inspector can often make recommendations for localized treatments depending upon the nature and location of the infestation. Call us for Carpenter Ant control.

I'm a general contractor and recently needed a termite treatment at the last minute. His price was in line with what I would normally expect to pay as a contractor. He did it in a timely manner and didn't try to price gouge like another pest control company in Mooresville did. Would highly recommend

I have found them to be quick, reliable and dependable, especially with my scheduling conflicts. They are easy to talk to, always follow up and I feel comfortable contacting them if I have a problem between services. Have used other pest control in the past and A+ is completely different-wish I would have found them sooner!

Jason came to treat an invasion of ants within 24 hours when other companies were telling me I'd have to wait a week -- for an invasion of ants??? He was not only prompt and courteous but informative and set expectations about what I might observe and that it may need a second treatment. Couldn't have asked for more!

I have been using A+ Termite & Pest Control for over 3 years now. I chose them because they had the best price of all the companies I called. While I try to stay away from the cheapest option, I thought I would give them a shot and honestly I am glad I did. I have been very happy with the service they provide. Staff is very friendly, professional and personable. They go out of their way to make sure I am completely satisfied. I receive quarterly treatments but they will respond if I have any issues between. I could not be happier with A+ and highly recommend them.

Jason is trustworthy, reliable, and honest. As a Realtor, my clients expect me to make sound recommendations. Home Buyers want to be assured their new home is free of Termites and other Wood Destroying Insects. I have put my trust in Jason and A+ Termite & Pest Control; and for over 10 years, that trust has been validated. His experience in this business alone is a solid reason to choose his service but truly it is his honesty that sets him apart.

Jason and his team are thoughtful and thorough! I had a colony of ants appear through an outlet in the kitchen and needed action quickly. Not only are the ants gone, but in their review if the whole exterior revealed two large wasp nest which were treated and removed as well. Thank you!

Very happy with service and price. Always contacts me before coming to my home to make sure no schedule conflicts and to see if have any pest problems that they might need to bring extra or other supplies. Always checks to see where my pet is at time of application around my home to insure my pet's safety. Responds quickly if have needs outside the quarterly visit. Recommend A+ Termite & Pest Control to anyone looking for superior service for a very reasonable price.
