Don’t let a carpenter ant infestation cause structural damage to your home.
Modern’s HomeCare Green Pest Control Program provides an effective treatment to carpenter ant infestations while minimizing the amount of pesticides used in and around your home for the safety of your family and pets.
During your initial service, a Pest Management Professional will conduct a thorough inspection and provide a detailed report documenting where carpenter ants were found and the extent of the current infestation. Our professionals focus on areas that are prone to infestation, such as on windows and window sills, firewood stacked near a home, porch supports, and more.
Modern Focuses Treatments on Carpenter Ant “Hot Spots”:
- Windows and window sills
- Doors and door frames
- Plumbing fixtures
- Crawl spaces
- Porch supports; under patios or decks
- Overgrown vegetation
- Firewood stacked near home
- Fence and utility posts
- Swimming pool coping
- Gutters and downspouts
- Wood fascia boards
THE MODERN SOLUTION TO CARPENTER ANTS
Modern focuses carpenter ant control service treatments on the interior and exterior areas of a home where carpenter ants are likely to be working, nesting or foraging for food. Unlike termites, carpenter ants don’t actually eat wood. Instead, they excavate or hollow it out to nest inside. Voids, either excavated or naturally occurring, are treated by placing materials directly into the void.
By treating the source of your carpenter ant problem directly, we limit the use of pesticides within a home. Additionally, proactive treatments are applied in areas prone to infestation, also known as “hot spots.” This provides residual protection against carpenter ant re-infestation.
Is it Safe for my Family and Pets?
At Modern Pest Services, our number one priority is to keep you and your loved ones safe and your home pest-free. We do very targeted applications using the least toxic materials possible in or around your home. This is achieved through a careful inspection where pest “hot spots” are located in order to help minimize conditions that promote pest activity.
As a result, random application of material is always avoided. Our highly-trained team will always make sure to avoid applying materials in places that your family and pets may have frequent contact. The labeling on our HomeCare Green products indicates that the material is non-transferrable once dried.
