Ant Control

Ant Control In Omaha, NE

Common Ants In Nebraska

Effective ant control in Omaha is no easy feat, as these wily social insects are highly motivated to get onto our properties and into our homes. Keeping them at bay is an ongoing effort all year long. We have many different ant species here in Nebraska, including:

  • Odorous ants
  • Carpenter ants
  • Pavement ants
  • Field ants
  • Yellow ants
  • Thief ants
  • Acrobat ants

While odorous house ants are stinky and pavement ants can technically sting, though they rarely do, almost all the ants in our state are considered nuisance pests – except for one.

Carpenter ants in Omaha are much more than a nuisance. These wood-destroying insects are second only to termites in the damage they can do to your property. They don't eat wood, but they dig through it, carving an intricate web of tunnels and chambers like the kind you would find in an underground anthill. This behavior eventually weakens the structure of the wood and can render it structurally unsound.

  • Are ants dangerous?

    Ants can definitely be dangerous. Some ant species in the U.S. can be quite aggressive in defense of their nests, swarming and stinging, just like hornets!

    Our most dangerous ant species is the carpenter ant. Carpenter ants live in wood and tunnel through it, just like termites do. They can do a lot of damage to the wooden structure of your home, which can cost thousands of dollars and even make your house dangerous to live in. You should definitely prioritize carpenter ant treatment above all others.

  • Can I prevent ant infestations?

    You can absolutely prevent ant infestations. You just need to follow a few ant prevention tips that make your home less attractive to these foraging insects. Do things like:

    • Keep indoor and outdoor garbage cans covered with tight lids.
    • Store pantry foods in airtight containers to mask smells.
    • Make sure to seal potential entries like cracks and holes in your home's exterior.
    • Repair moisture problems like condensation, leaks, or clogged drainage.
    • Ensure all the wood in your home is hard and dry.
    • Don't leave pet foods or dirty pet bowls sitting out.
    • Clean up after meals right away, and never leave dirty dishes in the sink.

    Following these home pest control practices can help prevent infestations by making your home less attractive to all ant varieties.

  • What do I do if I wind up with ants?

    If your ant prevention measures fail, don't waste time trying to get rid of these social insects yourself. Ant colonies are massive and complex entities that you cannot eliminate with a few granules or some spray. Often, all these store-bought products do is make ants move their nest entrance a few feet – if that.

    If you want to get rid of your ant infestation rather than just temporarily reduce your home's ant load, call us here at Quality Pest Control. We dedicate ourselves to client satisfaction, and our specialists won't rest easy until you can too!

Protect Your Home from Ants

Regardless of the species, you don't want ants in your home. They can contaminate your food stores by crawling into them – not to mention the fact that they're not fun to look at crawling around your kitchen.

The good news is we've got the tools and techniques to get rid of whatever ant problem you have here at Quality Pest Control. Our products are designed specifically for ant control, and our resident ant experts can take your ant control efforts to the next level.

We'll start with a consultation where we check out your home and property to see where the problem areas are and how best to eliminate your ant infestation. Once our Omaha, NE, service specialists familiarize themselves with your specific issues, they'll set right to work clearing them up.

Our ant control treatments work differently than over-the-counter ant control products because they spread them throughout their colonies through social behaviors like communication, feeding, and grooming. It ensures the entire colony is exposed – including the queen – and eliminates the ants in your home
