Ant Control Austin & Houston

When we first visit your home, we’ll look for and treat entry points and ant infested areas. We’ll also look for and treat areas that could attract ants, such as moist areas, holes in sheetrock, or the inside of cabinets.

Once the interior of the home has been treated, your green pest control technician will then service the exterior every two months, so to provide an invisible twenty foot barrier around your home.

If you’re facing an ant infestation, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We'll come to your address as soon as possible so that you can start enjoying your space again.

Fast removal of ants

Ant infestations can be really alarming. Often a single infestation will contain thousands of ants and they can cause a lot of damage in a short space of time.

If you have an ant infestation, it's important that you have them removed as quickly as possible. Left to their own devices, ants can damage your home's structure and give you, your family, and your pets nasty bites and stings.

Common Types of Ants in Austin & Houston

There are a number of ants found in Austin & Houston but, if you have an infestation, it's likely to be one of the below.

  • Fire Ants

    You might recognize fire ants because of their colors. They have reddish-brown bodies and they come in different sizes.

    Fire ants are a particularly aggressive ant species. If they’re disturbed, they can attack in large numbers, stinging and biting. As their name suggests, getting bitten by a fire ant is not a pleasant experience. You may experience a painful burning and itching sensation.

    A handy trick for identifying fire ants is that their mounds don’t have a hole in the top.

  • Carpenter Ant

    Carpenter ants, which are usually about one fourth of an inch in length, are nocturnal. This means that, if you have carpenter ants as pests, you’re more likely to see them at night time.

    It’s really important that you have carpenter ants removed because they can damage your home’s structure if they nest in the wood. They’re particularly attracted to moisture and, if they nest inside your home, they’re most likely to do that near a food source, such as a kitchen or refrigerator.

    They seek out food - especially sweet food, greasy food, and meat and eggs. So, try to keep your floors and surfaces as clean as you can.

    Carpenter ants are common in Texas. If you find ants that are large and are orange, brown, or black (or a combination of the three), you quite possibly have a carpenter ant infestation.

  • Acrobat Ants

    Although smaller, acrobat ants are similar to carpenter ants due to their color and nesting habits. This ant species will usually build their nests in trees and like the carpenter ant, will also nest indoors. If the acrobat ant decided to make build its nest in your home, you will likely find it in the walls or insulation and especially if you have moisture damage. If disturbed, worker acrobat ants can release a foul odor and aggressively bite in an effort to defend themselves and their nests.

  • Pharoah Ant

    This is a really small type of ant, usually around a sixteenth of an inch in length. These yellow ants with dark-tipped bellies like to make their nests indoors, so it’s not uncommon for you to have these critters as household pests. 

    Because pharaoh ants like to live in narrow, warm, and dark areas, you’re most likely to find them in places such as wall outlets, underneath carpets and appliances, and in wall voids and electrical boxes.
