We have all been there. You are cooking in the kitchen when suddenly, you notice an ant, and then several, and then an entire infestation. Ants are a cause of concern for millions of people across the country.
Did you know that ants are the number one nuisance pest in America? Studies show that ant infestations are especially common in structures like office buildings, single-family homes, apartments and condominiums, and restaurants. If you have noticed an increase in ants, there are several important steps you should take to combat them.
Learn more today about how to eliminate ants in your home or business from the experts at Nvirotect Pest Control Services, your source for premier Green Certified Pest Control in Tampa.
1. Understand the Cause
One of the most important steps to take after seeing ants in your home or business is to understand the reason behind their appearance. This can help you and your pest control Service Technician determine the best plan of action.
Some common causes of ant infestations are:
- Moisture or humidity inside your home or business
- Leaking pipes or faucets
- Crumbs of food (including pet food)
- Greasy surfaces
- Decaying wood around your structure
These issues may result in ants nesting and breeding inside your structure.
2. Invest in Green Certified Pest Control in Tampa
When you realize that your home or business has an ant problem, your first instinct may be to spray them with traditional ant sprays and pesticides. However, these methods may only be a temporary solution, and can also be harmful to humans and pets. Using over-the-counter products improperly will make an ant issue worse. For example, using sprays can make the ant issue worse by causing pharaoh ants to bud/split into more colonies throughout your structure.
Our treatment methods concentrate on using bait and gel formulations and overspray (liquid) formulations. It takes extreme care to place bait and gel formulations, as humans cannot touch the container with their bare hands. Touching the container with bare hands can leave a residue that creates ant aversion.
Our Service Technicians apply treatment with the utmost care and expertise to produce the best results.

3. Practice Preventative Care

- Sweeping up food crumbs including pet food crumbs
- Cleaning greasy surfaces
- Repairing leaking pipes and faucets
- Conducting regular pest control inspections
- Keeping vegetation and trees trimmed away from touching your structure
By conducting regular pest control inspections with a Green Certified Pest Control company, you can be sure that your home or business is protected from pesky ants and other harmful pests.
