Frequently Asked Questions

APC has a very effective treatment plan for ants, but please keep in mind that they may not be active when we are there for your scheduled service, so you will need to let us know when you see ant mounds and ant trails so we are aware of them.

Ants can be a serious problem in the East Valley, as they can invade homes and businesses in large numbers and cause damage to property. While some types of ants are relatively harmless and can be managed with standard pest control methods, other types of ants can pose a significant threat and require professional pest control services.

Here are some types of ants commonly found in the East Valley of Phoenix, AZ and the potential risks they pose:

  • Carpenter ants: Carpenter ants are large black or red ants that can cause damage to wooden structures by excavating galleries for their nests. If left untreated, carpenter ant infestations can cause significant damage to the structural integrity of buildings.
  • Fire ants: Fire ants are small reddish-brown ants that can deliver a painful sting. Fire ant infestations can be difficult to control, and their stings can cause allergic reactions in some people.
  • Argentine ants: Argentine ants are small brown ants that can invade homes and businesses in large numbers. While they are relatively harmless to humans, Argentine ants can contaminate food and damage electrical systems.
  • Harvester ants: Harvester ants are large, red ants that can be aggressive and deliver painful stings. They can also damage gardens and crops by harvesting seeds and eating plant material.

If you have an ant infestation in your home or business, it’s important to contact a professional pest control service to determine the type of ant and the best course of action to control the infestation. A professional pest control service can provide safe and effective treatments to eliminate ant infestations and prevent future infestations from occurring.
