We Exterminate Ants
Queen ants can lay up to 800 eggs a day. That is a lot! Just spraying in the area doesn’t do much, because the queen rarely comes out. In fact, spraying the area, including the nest, just kills some of the workers.
Pretty soon, the ants will dig a new tunnel to a new place and start their march all over again. When treating for ant control, Nest will apply a granule bait that will attract the ants. They then bring this to their queen and feed it to her. This will eliminate the colony in time. It may take up to two weeks for all the ants to die away, but then you’ll be pest-free again!
Different Ants Sometimes Require Different Control Methods
There are thousands of ant species in the world. Although most can be effectively controlled by a method or two, some other require more specific insecticides, bait or other measures. Nest knows ants and will provide the correct treatment option for your case.

Ant infestations in your kitchen are commonly attributed to “sugar ants””. Now, almost every ant species is attracted to sugars (thus why they invade picnics so much) but an actual “banded sugar ant” is a species from Australia, so not likely the ant in your kitchen.
Usually, in America, the ants in your kitchen are one of few common species of ant found out here: the little black ant, the Argentine ant, the odorous house ant, the pavement ant or even the pharaoh ant, All of these types of ants are very small in size, maybe up to an eighth of an inch in length. But they are rather intrepid and will often create a colony indoors, not just outside. In Washington DC, we also have carpenter ants, though they usually don’t invade the kitchen.
