Protection Against Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ant infestation in woodModern’s HomeCare Green Program provides an effective treatment to a carpenter ant infestation while minimizing the amount of pesticides in and around your home. 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.

Modern focuses treatments on the interior and exterior areas of the home where carpenter ants are likely to be working, nesting or foraging for food. Unlike termites, carpenter ants don’t actually eat the wood, 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 the problem directly, we limit the use of pesticides within the home. Proactive treatments in areas prone to infestation or “hot spots” are also applied providing residual protection against re-infestation.

Is it safe for my family and pets?

Safe for kids and petsWe are often asked this question and understandably so.  At Modern Pest Services, our number one priority is to keep you and your loved ones safe and your home pest free.    We do this by solving your pest problem using the least amount of materials possible in or around your home. This includes a careful inspection, locating pest “hot spots” in order to help minimize conditions that promote pest activity. We then do very targeted applications using the least toxic materials as possible.   As a result, random application of material is always avoided.

Also, because our team is highly trained, they will always make sure to avoid applying materials in places that your family and pets may have frequent contact.  In regards to our annual HomeCare Green program, product labeling indicates that the material is non-transferrable once dried.  As a result,  we recommend that you keep children and pets off of treated surfaces until dry.
