YOUR TRUSTED ANT CONTROL EXPERTS
Ants have a wide variety of nesting habits and food preferences. Some ants build nests in soil, producing characteristic mounds while others nest in homes behind moldings, baseboards, countertops, and similar places. Still other ants nest in decaying or moisture damaged wood.
Many ants enter homes from outside nests as they forage for food. Ants usually take regular routes to and from their nest and the food source by establishing a chemical (pheromone) trail. The nest may be found by watching where the ants go; for some ants, such as carpenter ants, this works best at night. If the nest is discovered, it can be treated or removed (in the case of rotted wood).
Most ants are primarily a nuisance and cause little damage. Some, such as Pharaoh ants, may infest food. Others, like carpenter ants, can weaken wood in structures.

A Termidor treatment creates a treated zone of nonrepellent protection around the home. This is the key to Termidor’s unique Transfer Effect .™ Ants passing through the treated area pick up Termidor on their bodies and transfer the active ingredient to nest mates through routine social contact. The Transfer Effect enables Termidor to control ants that never make direct contact with a treated surface. They need only to contact other ants that have been exposed to Termidor.
Ants interact with each other as a means of communication, grooming and feeding, which makes the concept of transfer so important to ant control.
