Ants are fearless critters, perfectly willing to creep and crawl across your kitchen countertops in search of food—a real nuisance in Nashville and surrounding areas in Davidson County. If you see just a couple of them, there’s plenty more (perhaps millions more!) lurking beneath the surface.

Fortunately, our Nashville ant exterminators are well trained, ready to inspect your home, block entry points, and leave bait traps that ants exploring your home can take back to their colonies to address the entire infestation. At Waynes Pest Control, we don’t settle. So, it’s not enough to prevent the scouting ants from getting inside; we take our eco-friendly solution to the colony’s heart—and its queen.

A couple of ants can be annoying. Soon, though, they can be a serious problem as they spread germs and contaminants as they search for crumbs. Depending upon their species, they could even bite or sting you. Plus, ant colonies located underground can damage your home. 

Here’s how they operate. Ants build huge colonies and leave pheromone trails behind so other foragers can share in the food sources they find. They can slip in your home through the tiniest cracks and crevices. So, before ants gain a foothold around your property, use our professional ant treatment in Nashville to cut the problem off at the pass.

Ant Species in Nashville

Plenty of ant species call Nashville home, and our skilled exterminators know how to identify and treat them. Here are some of the most common:

  • Carpenter ants: Black or red or a mixture of both, these ants seldom are bigger than half an inch. They chew through woodwork, particularly old, moist wood. Our ant control specialists will identify them by the holes they create, the sawdust they leave, and insect parts.
  • Odorous house ants: Brown or black, these tiny ants are hard to spot. Odorous house ants hide under wood and beside standing water, and are drawn by sweets lying around.
  • Fire ants: Petite and red, these ants create easier-to-find nesting mounds: two- to four-feet wide. Fire ants can also sting. Outdoors, you can try to stay away from them, but this doesn’t work once they get inside your Nashville home.

Other problematic ants found in Nashville include Argentine ants, acrobat ants, crazy ants, and more. Once a queen sets down roots, workers will seek out food in the surrounding area, and colonies can quickly expand.

Our pet-safe ant control uses the pathways created by ants against them, getting our bait into the heart of the colony.

Our best ant prevention tips include the following: 

  • Place food in tightly-lidded containers, especially candy and other sweets.
  • Regularly clean, dust, and wipe up crumbs.
  • Seal off gaps, cracks, and holes in your home.

Here are some things to avoid:

  • Avoid piling firewood in or near your home.
  • Blocking outdoor ant highways or spraying water on them seldom works. 
  • Don’t interfere with visible ant mounds. 

Instead, contact Waynes Pest Control for our ant treatment in Nashville.

Ants usually march in single file when they’ve found a path and are on a mission. By following this, you can see their nest, but don’t disturb it. Even if you see just one ant, they’re likely not alone and will send signals to other ants to follow along. Instead, contact us to get started on ant treatment in Nashville.

After our eco-friendly, pet-safe ant control treatments are complete, these pests aren’t likely to bother you again for quite a while. Our Nashville pest control experts will inspect your property, identify the locations of colonies and highways leading to them, and strategically place bait. Ants take it to their queen, targeting the colony—taking care of the root problem.

Nashville Ant Control FAQs

Because no two ant infestations are the same—in size, scope, or species—we offer customized solutions after thoroughly inspecting your home, analyzing the situation, and coming up with a personalized plan. We’d be more than happy to do this for you! Contact us to get started.

Your Waynes Pest Control specialist can talk to you about your specific situation in more detail. In general, though, we treat the problem both inside and out, using pet safe ant control treatments that ants will take back to their colonies, which creates as rapid of a solution as possible.

We’ll put our comprehensive, eco-friendly, ant control against any other in the business. We use a combo of prevention and extermination to get rid of ants and other pests for good.

Some species are tiny and lurk beneath where it’s obvious, making it difficult to see them with the naked eye. You may, however, spot ants marching in a single file line, following pathways created through their pheromones. You can follow along to see these established ant highways and trace them to the source: the colony. But, don’t try to tackle the problem yourself. Instead, contact Waynes for professional pest control for ants.

Since a majority of ant problems start outside, Waynes Pest Control will apply a ten-foot perimeter ant treatment around your home’s foundation to deny ants access to your home. Then, year-round, we continue to apply ant control treatments around your home’s exterior to say “no” to all types of ants that want to get indoors, including: Argentine ants, acrobat ants, crazy ants, and odorous house ants.

However, if you are struggling with a fire ant infestation, we have a slightly different approach to gain control over these insects. We begin by applying a granular bait throughout your yard. When the fire ants consume this bait, they will transport it back to their mound, effectively exterminating the colony. Wayne's Pest Control guarantees the effectiveness of this fire ant treatment for 365 days.
