Ant Extermination Solutions
Ants live in colonies both inside and outside of a home. Spraying ants with a pesticide may kill the pest itself, however, the problem won’t go away until the colony is eliminated. T&G provides a low-impact approach that not only targets where ants are harboring inside, but also the exterior of your home, as well as trees, bushes, mulch and other landscaping material.

Potential Ant Problems
One of the biggest problems related to ants in the home is food contamination. Ants carry bacteria on their bodies, which spreads when they crawl in pantries and across countertops. Only a few species are known to transmit diseases, but finding any type of ant in pantry goods or inside the home is an unpleasant experience that creates nuisances.
Some species, like carpenter and fire ants, cause additional problems. A carpenter ant infestation can do costly damage by chewing tunnels through wood beams. Fire ant stings that involve envenomation can cause pain and more serious symptoms that often result in allergic reactions to some people who are hyper-sensitive to ant stings.
