Should I try to get rid of ants myself?

Many homeowners attempt to get rid of ants themselves instead of calling the professionals. Homeowners often make a couple of common false assumptions when they try to get rid of ants themselves:

  • That they know what species of ant they see in their home.
  • That they are using the right category of product.
  • That a one-time pesticide application will be enough to get rid of the ants in their home and keep them away.

There are over 12,000 ant species which means the one-size-fits-all approach store-bought pesticides offer isn’t enough. Balancing the right knowledge, training, products, and technology is the best way to get rid of ants and keep them away for good.

Saela treats each ant situation with a custom ant control plan. Some of the most common ants we encounter are sugar ants, red harvester ants, pavement ants, and fire ants, but we can identify and address many ant species.

Common ant species.

Sugar Ants

Fire Ants

Pavement Ants

Red Harvester Ants

Other Species

Sugar ants are attracted to sweet foods like honey, jelly/jam, cake and sugar. Because sugar ants are drawn to food, moisture and warmth, they can be found in kitchens, bathrooms and warm areas of a home in search of these resources.

Sugar ants are difficult to remove from homes once their colony has become established due to their high populations, tendency to have multiple branches of a colony known as “satellite colonies”, and because they regularly relocate. They often carry food waste from the trash, floor, sink drain, and other unhygienic areas. They compromise the cleanliness of a home. Sugar ants are also known as odorous house ants and coconut ants.

Fire ants live in warmer climates like those found in the Southern United States. Fire ants are a venomous species that swarm and deliver painful stings when threatened. Fire ant stings are painful and lead to blisters that can last for 3-10 days or even result in an emergency room visit.

Fire ants are more likely to be found outdoors than indoors. They are drawn to sunny, warm areas where there is water and food available. Fire ants create their nests by burrowing into the earth which results in a mound. These nests can be between 2 and 4 square feet.

Pavement ants are named for their tendency to live around sidewalks and driveways. Pavement ants are commonly found in and around homes and are most active at night. They eat many different foods including seeds, pet food, and foods that are sweet or greasy.

Like their name suggests, pavement ants are likely to be found and build their nests near sidewalks, curbs, stones, driveways, and other similar areas. When trying to locate a pavement ant nest, look in areas where they are commonly found for disrupted soil.

Red harvester ants are often confused with fire ants because they are also red and sting. However, red harvester ants are larger than fire ants and are less likely to bite.

Red harvester ants are drawn to sunny, open areas. You can locate their nests by looking for bare areas of soil. Red harvester ants eat seeds, fruits, vegetables, and insects and are likely to be attracted to areas where those things are available. Watch for red harvester ants around things like bird feeders and gardens. Its imperative to get Dallas red harvester ant control with professionals.

Some winged ants are confused with termites. Ant species range in color from black and brown to red and even yellow. Our team is unique because we hire expert entomologists, so you can be sure we can accurately identify what species of ant we are dealing with and which treatment is the correct one for the pests in your home.

Can DIY make things worse?

Addressing ant infestations using DIY methods or store-bought pesticides is tempting to many homeowners. Unfortunately, taking this route often results in only short-term success or can even make ant problems worse. DIY methods and store-bought pesticides can get rid of a small portion of a colony, however, when a mature colony is pushing 75,000 ants you’ll need something much more effective. Not to mention, ants learn to avoid pesticide and can even overpower it due to the sheer volume of ants.

The Saela folks always do such a good job of spraying the exterior of our house. We haven’t had any bugs/spiders of note since we have had Saela providing pest control 5 years ago.

We used to live in “Spiderville”. Ever since we started having Saela spray a couple of years ago, we rarely see spiders anymore. We also had a problem with a hornets nest in a tree. The techs were here at least 4 times in a week to get them out of here and they haven’t been back.
