Ant services and tips for preventing ants in and around your business.
SPRAGUE SOLUTIONS
Ants are one of the least harmful but most prolific pests. Finding the right solution depends on the type of ant.

EDUCATION


RISKS

Most ants are not a health risk with a dangerous sting or bite, but they can contaminate food, attract unwanted attention and damage a company's image.

WINGS

Ants have wings, or at least some of them do. The queen and male ants have wings while the female workers in a colony do not.

 

SOURCES

Identify ants to find the source. Carpenter ants nest in walls. Pavement ants nest under floors. Odorous house ants like moisture near water heaters or dishwashers.

DIY TIPS

Spraying pesticide to kill a few worker ants indoors will not solve an ant problem. The best way to effectively control ants requires identification, finding the ant nest and killing the queen that produces the worker ants.

Ants are attracted to food, warmth and moisture. Clean spills, take out the trash and store food in sealed containers.
Trim back trees and shrubs away from your building to prevent easy access. Seal possible entry points around doors and windows. Seal cracks and crevices in the foundation to prevent ants from entering.
