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. 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. Most ant infestations originate outside, your technician will focus on the perimeter of the home and outlying areas of the yard. In addition to exterior ant treatments, we can also treat the interior of your home to stop ants from entering. Future service treatments will be exterior-only, without requiring you to be home or having to worry about scheduling conflicts. Griffin Pest Management offers Monthly, Bi-Monthly and one time ant services with no contract required.

Guaranteed Results

Both the inside and outside of your home are always under warranty. We guarantee your satisfaction between regular scheduled maintenance services. If at any time you find yourself in need of an additional treatment between regular scheduled services, call us and we will return to re-treat your home.

Ants Found In Southern California

Argentine Ants

"Black ants" can be found throughout southern California. This non-native species of ant forms large colonies which do not compete with one another, allowing them to take over your property. These ants typically are found inside near sources of food or water during dry or exceptionally wet weather.

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.

We are extremely satisfied with this service. Our service guy Joe is awesome. He goes above and beyond to help us with anything we need. We never have ants and he has definitely kept the spiders away. Joe has also chased rats away for us and for that we are grateful. Well worth the money! Thanks Joe!

We have used Griffin Pest Management for more than two years now and are very happy with the field techs (Daniel). We are scheduled every other month and given a time window for our appointment. Griffin has never missed their appointed time. The office staff (Brittany) is polite and accommodating. Our ant/insect issues are a thing of the past. We would highly recommend Griffin Pest Management.
