Ant Control in Virginia Beach, VA 

Ants may be small, but their impact on your home can be big. Should you have an infestation on your hands, let our team at Universal Pest & Termite come to the rescue. We offer one-time control treatments and valuable subscription-based control programs that can keep you free of ants and other pests throughout the year. Starting with our Virginia Beach ant control services is simple. All you must do is reach out by phone or online, and then we will gladly set up an inspection to determine how we can help you. 

Signs of an Ant Infestation

How do you know if you have an ant infestation? The mere sight of a few ants does not mean you have a widespread problem. 

However, you could benefit from contacting a professional like us if you notice:

  • Ant trails: Visible trails of ants moving from a food source to their nest are a clear sign of a problem.
  • Piles of frass: Carpenter ants will leave behind frass (excrement). It looks a lot like sawdust, and you will find it near entry points to your home. 
  • Audible rustling sounds: With some larger ant species, you may hear rustling or crackling sounds from walls or ceilings.
  • Damaged wood or insulation: Certain ant species, such as carpenter ants, tunnel through wood and insulation, causing evident damage. 
  • Discarded wings: After mating, swarming ants shed wings.  You may be dealing with an infestation if you find discarded wings near windowsills or other entry points.
  • Ant nests: Finding ant nests under piles of debris or in wall voids is a sure sign that these pests are on your property.

Prevent Future Ant Infestations

Once our expert ant exterminators have eliminated the current infestation in your home, it's important to take steps to prevent future ant problems. Here are some tips to keep ants at bay:

  • Seal cracks and crevices where ants can enter your home
  • Keep your kitchen clean and free of crumbs and spills
  • Store food in airtight containers
  • Trim back vegetation and trees that are close to your home
  • Consider regular pest control maintenance to keep ants and other pests away

By following these preventative measures, you can help ensure that your home remains ant-free in the future. If you have any questions or concerns about ant control, don't hesitate to contact Universal Pest & Termite for expert advice and assistance.

How We Treat for Ants

The best way to control ants is to keep them out in the first place. This is why our team will follow ant trails to entry points and seal them. Then, they will find and eliminate nesting areas and limit potential food sources. If pesticide applications are necessary, you can count on our team to administer these treatments safely and strategically. In many cases, we use all-natural pesticides. 

Do you want to fully protect your home from ants and other pests, such as cockroaches and termites? Consider signing up for our Border-Guard, Border-Guard+, or Uni-Guard programs. These give you comprehensive, routine treatments at a great price. Contact us with questions or schedule an initial inspection to determine what your home needs. 

Are Ants Dangerous or Just a Nuisance?

It depends on the species and scale of infestation. Pavement ants and odorous house ants do not pose risks of damage, but they can contaminate food and keep you from comfortably using your outdoor spaces. In many cases, these ants are simply nuisances. 

On the other hand, carpenter ants can cause serious structural damage. They make tunnels in wood to build nests. A widespread infestation can compromise the strength of your home’s wooden structures. 

Another dangerous species is imported fire ants, which are present in Virginia’s tidewater areas. These are not native to the state but have been introduced by shipping. A fire ant infestation can put humans and pets at risk of painful stinging.
