Exterminating Ants In Southern California Since 1994

Ant Control in LA, Orange and San Diego Counties

Why Do I Have Ants?

Ants enter homes in search of shelter from weather or to find new sources of food or water. In the hot summer months when ant infestations are the most common, ants typically enter the home in search of water sources. This is the reason ants are commonly found in dishwashers, sinks, showers and around toilets. After finding water, the ants spread out and search for sources of food for the colony. Leaving food containers open and out can lead to an ant infestation. Make sure left overs are thrown away and excess food is picked up off the floor and counters. Taking out the trash more often can also be helpful in reducing ant populations. It is important to stop ants before they establish trails inside your home. Ants are much more difficult to control once they have established themselves.

Ant Inspection

Your pest control service will begin with a licensed technician providing a full inspection of your residence and property to identify the ant infestation. During the inspection, your ant control technician will identify potential problem areas around your home or office. After the source of your problem areas have been identified, your technician will point out other potential ant harborages and steps you can take to reduce future ant infestations. Your technician will create a customized ant treatment plan for year-round protection, using the most effective and environmentally-conscious ant control solutions.

Ant Treatments & Pest Control Service

We not only kill and control your current ants, but help prevent any future ant outbreaks. We advise that before interior treatment that you clean out the areas under the sink. This is a common area for ants to seek water and hang out undetected, until they are all over the bathroom or kitchen counters. Treating these areas can take out the source of the problem and having the area prepared will make for a quick effective treatment. Most ant infestations originate outside, your technician will point out potential problem areas around the structure as well as any sanitation recommendations that could aid in gaining control. We focus on the perimeter of the home and outlying areas of the yard. Once interior control is reached then future services will only be needed to be done on the exterior. Please allow a week to 10 days for the treatment to be effective. Using baits requires help from the ants, meaning they bring the product back to the nest where it infects the colony and eventually the colony is wiped out. Griffin Pest Management offers Monthly, Bi-Monthly and one time ant services with no contract required.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants get their name because they excavate wood in order to build their nests. Their excavation results in smooth tunnels inside the wood. Carpenter ants range in size from one-quarter inch for a worker ant to up to three-quarters inch for a queen.

The service technician from Griffin was both friendly and knowledgeable and the office staff were able to work with my rather rushed need for scheduling. I was so pleased with their work when they came and tented my house for termites that, just recently when the weather brought ants out across my whole neighborhood, I called them back for any treatment and have recommended them to several friends and neighbors.
