Are Ants Taking Over Your Columbia, SC Yard? With Two Treatments a Year You’ll Never See Them Again

Imagine being able to walk through your own yard without having to watch out for fire ants, ever again. Think of how enjoyable an outdoor meal would be without ants crawling their way toward your plate of food. With Mosquito Squad of Columbia’s ant treatment, you won’t have to worry about these biting, irritating pests anymore.

Here in Columbia SC, ants are a general nuisance. Nearly every yard in our great city has these biting, intrusive pests. The excellent news is that our ant treatment is easy and effective. In order to rid your yard and home of ants, we need only to apply two treatments a year. You can put away your cans of ant repellent and leave the work to the professionals.

By far, the fire ant is the most problematic ant in our area. Fire ant mounds, once disturbed, become a swarming pool of angry, aggressive, biting ants. These can especially be a problem with young children walking around the backyard. This holds true for pets also. Due to the aggressiveness of fire ants, you, your family members, and your pets can be bitten several dozen times before knowing the ants were even there.

While fire ant bites are not fatal to humans, they can be for your pets. Since pets will more than likely have their snouts (nose) exposed to the ants, they are more likely to experience bites near their airways. Swelling can result in breathing difficulties and a trip to the veterinarian may be required. Quite simply, fire ant control in Columbia SC is something that should not be taken lightly.

Let Mosquito Squad of Columbia remove these aggressive, unwanted inhabitants of your yard for good. Remember, it only takes two treatments a year to completely resolve your yard’s ant problem.
