No matter how small and seemingly harmless, ants should never be welcome in your home. These uninvited guests build their nests on your premises, use your resources, invade your kitchen, and, sometimes, carry diseases and parasites that can contaminate your food. If you have an ant problem, it’s best to take care of it quickly to avoid any of these harsh consequences.

There are plenty of ant treatments available on the market these days, but it still pays to hire a professional. When you sporadically apply ant treatments, you risk breaking up the colony, causing it to split or move. You can easily make the problem worse if you don’t know what you are doing.
“Spraying here and there” is not a solution. In fact, we advise our Baltimore customers against using spray to treat ants, especially in the kitchen where the toxins can get on your food preparation surfaces. If you want to fight ants on your own, you can start by being proactive and reducing the chances of ants moving in. With our Home Protection Plan, you can avoid an ant infestation before it starts!
