Ant Pest Control Service

Ants find their way indoors in search of food, water and shelter. In Orange, Inland Empire and San Diego counties, it is often due to changes in weather patterns like hot summer days, rains, or colder winter conditions. There are three types of ants found in our area and Nexgen Exterminating treats them all by customizing a plan of action based on the type of infestation you're seeing.

Ant Treatment

When treating ant infestations, we will begin the process by sending a professional, state-licensed and certified technician to inspect your property and determine what type of infestation you're experiencing. Once the source of the infestation is identified, we will customize a treatment plan based on your needs and budget. After the initial treatment, we recommend beginning a regular treatment plan to keep ants out all year long.

Depending on your property, severity of the infestation and your budget, we offer ongoing ant control services on a monthly, ever other month or quarterly basis. Concerned about the use of traditional pesticides? We also offer organic ant pest control services for the chemically sensitive. If you see any ants between regularly scheduled treatments, we will come back for free to re-treat the area.

Ants Found In Orange County and Inland Empire

Argentine Ants

Carpenter Ants

Argentine ants, also known as black ants, are the most commonly found species of ants found in the southwest. These ants do not attack or compete with each other, which has helped them spread prolifically. Black ants are not poisonous to humans, but they can infiltrate a home quickly and take over bathrooms, kitchens and pantries in a matter of hours.

Carpenter ants are a wood-boring species of ant. They are often confused with termites because they build their colonies by boring tunnel systems into wood. These ants cause damage by weakening wood beams and other wooden structural material. In extreme cases, fumigation may be needed to remove the colony.

Fire Ants

Like harvester ants, red imported fire ants build their colonies in large mounds. However, they prefer loose soil like sand. These ants also sting to defend their mounds when disturbed. Their stings can cause an allergic reaction to people or animals who are allergic to their venom.
