Description: Small black and brown ants leave piles of dirt in and around home baseboards. They can be found anywhere in the home. Adult mating ants grow wings and “swarm”. In slab homes, ants will come out of heat ducts in floors and baseboards.

Treatment: Bug-A-Boo uses a residual product around baseboards and around heat ducts, water pipes and entire outside perimeter. Small ants usually only need the first floor, basement and outside treated. Second floors don’t usually have a problem.

Carpenter Ants

Description: Carpenter ants are large, black ants, (breeders have wings) usually found in homes around a bath or kitchen or moist areas like windows or even where roofs may leak. They love dishwashers for the heat. They carve out nests in damp wood and leave sawdust. They are very destructive to wood.

Treatment: Bug-A-Boo’s treats home areas like baseboards, windows, doors, and basements. May involve gel baiting as well. Usually treatment depends on the individual home. With the treatments, we rarely need to do any drilling of holes in walls.
