The best way to get rid of ants permanently is with professional pest control because we have all the right tools and knowledge. While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything they can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.
Some ants create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Fox has the tools necessary to get rid of the problem for good.
Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve tunnels in wood. Although they don’t eat the wood as termites do, they can cause serious damage to your home if left untreated.
Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp sting. Fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants are among those that live in the United States.
Carpenter ants. Carpenter ants can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.
Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting as well as a bite. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings.
The main difference is the size. While most ants are about 1/8 inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to 1/2 inch, about 4 times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.
We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
