Fox Pest Control’s Lexington Ant Exterminator Service

Ants in your kitchen again? You know the drill: ants come in and stick around for months. You probably already know this, but if you see them in the kitchen, they’re in the bathrooms, bedrooms and doorways, too. Pretty soon the ants are taking over the entire house! At Fox Pest Control, we want you to feel comfortable and secure in an ant-free home. 

Signs of an Ant Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have an ant problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of an ant infestation in Lexington. 

Large Mounds in the Yard

They can be bare dirt or sand, or they can be covered in growing, healthy grass.

Ant Trails

Ants will travel long distances for food. Ant trails may disappear after the food source is gone.

Piles of ants

in grass, sand, or even cracks in brick or cement

What You Need to Know About Ants

  • Ants come in a large variety. In Lexington, the most common kinds of ants you’ll see around your home are:
    • Sugar ants
    • Ghost ants
    • Odorous house ants 
    • Carpenter ants
  • Ants find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping. Once inside, they hunt for food and moisture. That’s why you’ll see them most often in your kitchen and bathroom. 
  • While most of these ants are harmless, carpenter ant infestations can pose a serious threat to your Lexington property, because they tunnel their way through wood, causing damage to your home. 

Helpful Ant Prevention Tips 

  • Move wood or low-hanging tree branches away from your house. 
  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.

Ant Infestation Control FAQ

How do I get rid of ant infestations? Can I get rid of ants by myself?

The best way to get rid of ants permanently is with professional Lexington pest control and ant extermination because we have all the right tools and knowledge. While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything ants can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.

Why do ants keep coming back in Lexington?

You must control ants because they can create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Fox Pest Control has the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively provide ant control in Lexington.

What problems do carpenter ants cause? 

Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve tunnels in wood. Although they don’t eat the wood as termites do, if you don’t get help with carpenter ant treatment they can cause serious damage to your home if left untreated.

Which ants are the most dangerous?

Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp. You need to control fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants - they are among those stinging ants that live in the United States. 

Carpenter ants. You must exterminate carpenter ants because they can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.

Are ants poisonous?

Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings. 

What is the difference between a regular ant and a carpenter ant?

The main difference is the size. While most ants in Lexington are about ⅛ inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to ½ inch, about four times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.

Outstanding service in treatment of house for ants and water bugs. I called back the following day after treatment to ask them to spray the bathroom for nats, they came out that day to spray and no issue at all.

Had a sudden issue with ants and my first call was to Fox Pest Control after they were recommended by a neighbor. Since the first treatment I haven't seen a single ant or any other pests. The employees seem to care about what they do and take the time to discuss any issues they see. I would highly recommend Fox to anyone having a pest issue or if you want to prevent one.

The sales rep Kody was one of a kind, we had thought about pest control due to ants over the years but never jumped the gun, and this guy literally sold it to me. That kind of customer service goes a long way. Then the gentleman comes to spray and is just as good of a guy. I can't express how amazing these 2 were in my experience dealing with Fox. Great pricing, as well but I would pay even more just for the customer service they gave me and my family

Darius just came out for the second spraying of our house. He was incredibly nice and professional. He even took a few seconds to play with my young children and give them a few giggles as they were standing at the windows watching him spray the perimeters. The first visit was a good impression as well. It was a husband and wife team and they were here on time, very kind and great at explaining the process and answering questions about what I needed to do to keep my kids and dogs away from any chemicals etc.And, the ants are gone!Over all, from the sales call to the follow up it has been well worth the money.

The treatment was effective. I no longer see any evidence of the carpenter ants beginning the day after treatment. The technician, Jerry, was great and took time to explain what he thought was going on and answer all my questions satisfactorily. The price was cheaper than I had imagined and was discounted by 25% when I made my appointment.
