Ant Control in El Paso

Living in the desert comes at the cost of dealing with pests. Long summers and short winters mean the bugs have plenty of time to wreak havoc in or around our homes. Once ants get cozy in our homes, it can be hard to get rid of them. That’s where we come in. At Brants Pest Control, we specialize in safe and effective pest control that can get rid of your ant infestation in no time.

Facts About Ants

Ants are intelligent insects. Once in a colony, they work in teams to forage for food, grow their colony, and survive. Many ants are omnivores. They will feed on other insects, but will also search for fruits, vegetables, starches, and sugars. While ants can be beneficial outdoors because they kill other pests and aerate the soil, they can become an issue when too many infest inside and around the outside of a home or business, especially if they appear in a sterile area like a hospital.

Typically, you never find just one ant in your home. That’s because, for every one person, there are about one million ants. There are over 14,000 species of ants in the world and we have many native ants in the El Paso area alone, ranging in all shapes and sizes. Some common ants you may find in your backyard include the red fire ant, acrobat ants, and pharaoh ants. Ants can be painful, a nuisance, and even smelly.

While a fly that gets inside your home may die within a few days, ants can live up to 30 years, meaning if you don’t hire someone for ant control, you could be dealing with the issue for a long time. You want to be sure you get proper ant control because ants can survive extreme conditions. Many people think they can drown ants, but many ants can actually survive underwater for up to 24 hours. With us, you won’t have to worry about any ants surviving!
