While most ants aren’t destructive, they can be an obnoxious and tedious pest due to the large numbers they come in. Magic Touch Extermination and Wildlife Control takes care of all types of ants.

Different Types Of Ant Infestations
Carpenter ants are the most destructive kind of ant. Though they don’t match the level of destruction that termites achieve, they are capable of causing severe structural damage if not taken care of. Carpenter ants are a common infestation and one that should be taken very seriously. These ants feed on honeydew from aphids and don’t actually eat wood. Instead, they remove wood to make nests.
Odorous House Ant
Odorous house ants are the most common ant in terms of infestation. They are capable of contaminating food sources and are irritating to have around. These ants can be identified through the odor they leave behind when crushed. These ants do not bite or sting, but their large numbers can be obnoxious. These ants feed on honeydew from aphids, making gardens a desirable location for them.
Pavement ants are another one of the most common infestations. These ants typically make their homes under the pavement but will find their way into your home if it has suitable conditions. These ants are not known to bite or sting. These ants love sweet and greasy food items and are a common sight at restaurants because of this.
How we handle infestations
If you find yourself with an ant infestation on your hands, treatment starts with a simple phone call. After receiving your phone call, we’ll dispatch a team of experts to perform an inspection of your home. After determining where the ants have made their home, we’ll treat the issue the same day. We’ll treat both the inside and the outside, being sure to eliminate the entire colony. If we discover that there are satellite colonies, we’ll take care of those too. After eliminating the ant problem, we’ll schedule check-ins to ensure that the ants don’t make their way back into your home.
Checking Back In
We’ll schedule follow-up visits with you to see how the treatment has worked and, if needed, strengthen the preventative measures taken. We make sure that there are no signs of a returning infestation, and if there are, deal with the issue accordingly. We’ll work closely with you during this time to ensure that the plan has gone as expected
Ants are a common household pest and, although they don’t pose an immediate threat, can become an annoyance due to the pure number of them. Ants rarely, if ever, travel alone. They also lay down a scent trail, meaning that hundreds of more ants will make their way into your home if not treated properly. If you notice ants coming into your house in increasing numbers, it’s time to call an exterminator.
We take pride in our ability to communicate and always ensure that you have a complete understanding of what the treatment plan is and what it entails. Communication is our top priority. Any questions that you may have regarding the treatment and progress will be answered professionally and honestly. We will plan follow-up meetings with you to make sure that the treatment is going as planned and the ants are staying away.
