Carpenter Ant Extermination in NY & VT

Carpenter ants can cause devastating damage to a home and are truly the most problematic and difficult pest to remove and keep out of a structure –  which is why a Lifetime Warranty, like the one we offer, is practically unheard of in the pest control industry.

Our comprehensive carpenter ant treatment and prevention program involves both the interior and exterior of your home, and uses “natural”, essential oil-based products. These products are applied in cracks, crevices, or voids, so there is never any contact with people and pets. Because these eco-smart pesticides work by attacking key neurotransmitter receptor sites only found in insects, mammals have no adverse effects.

Our Carpenter Ant Control Process

The main colonies of carpenter ants are typically located outside the home, often in trees. The ants found inside your home likely belong to satellite colonies, which communicate with the main colony on the exterior. Our job is to search out the source of the main colony, eliminate the active infestation within your home, and take preventative measures to keep the main colonies out.

Step 1: Identification of Conducive Conditions. Using a trained professional eye, we pinpoint the possible nesting areas in your home and identify conducive conditions, such as leaky roofs, clogged gutters, overhanging trees, firewood stacked too close to the home, wood rot, and moisture damage. We then communicate these conditions to you using an Integrated Pest Management form, so that you can rectify them. This is typically done within the first several months of our program, however, new issues can arise as a result of changes to weather or the age of your home, so this is often an ongoing process.

Step 2: Interior Treatments. To ensure the entire structure is treated, we have a scheduled, systematic approach to the interior applications, whereby we treat specific areas at specific times. While our products have a light scent, most homeowners find the essential oils appealing. However, if you are sensitive to odors, we do recommend that you leave the home for 4 hours on the day of the application.

Step 3: Exterior Treatments. Exterior treatments are designed to cut off communication between the main colonies and the satellite colonies. We start by applying a spray pesticide to your home’s structure and the soil around it. Since these products will break down over time from sunlight and rain, we apply monthly for the highest level of control. In addition to the spray, we use exterior injections around windows, doors, and under siding, and apply bait in areas where there are trailing carpenter ants.

About Our Lifetime Warranty

Most competitors are unaware of the complexities of carpenter ants, and many homeowners have called us to take over for the competition after 2-3 years because, as we are told, “it’s just not working.” Other pest control companies simply don’t offer the same extensive scope of service.

Our promise is to eliminate the active infestation within your home by the end of the first year. If we cannot, we will come out for free until we do. If you choose our Lifetime Warranty Package, and the carpenter ants return, so will our exterminators. We will do whatever is necessary to remove them, including weekly follow-ups at no additional charge.

How to Determine if You Have Carpenter Ants

While carpenter ants typically swarm in the spring, it’s not unusual to find them year-round. The most common sign that you have a carpenter ant infestation is sawdust-like piles of wood shavings or wood with slits or holes. You may also hear a faint rustling inside your walls, or notice that the wood sounds hollow when tapped.

What our customers are saying

We are so pleased to have Joe A. as our technician he came to our home for the first time recently and we were very satisfied with his handling of our pest situation. When accessing the problem he told us that he was going to check with his boss in order to achieve the best results possible which we thought was great. Joe then spent a lot of time making sure that our home was thoroughly taken care of. We are very appreciative of Joe’s conscientious work ethic and for letting us know that the company would be there for us.
