We Exterminate Ants

Nest Pest Control has been controlling ant infestations in Washington DC and Maryland for over 20 years. We’ve taken that time to get to know the little creatures around us and consider the different ways to control their pestering us.

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!

We Can Start Treating on Our First Appointment

I had a yellow jacket infestation around my roofline. The technician had to remove my gutters and a wooden board to access the nest, so it was kind of a complicated job. He got the nest out, reattached everything, and caulked the roof so no more bees/wasps can make a nest there. He was very quick and efficient! He even swept up after he was done. Price was fairly reasonable when you factor in that the nest was difficult to access. I’m glad the yellow jackets are gone and I can enjoy my balcony again!

Did an amazing job removing a hornets nest that grew on the side of my home on the second floor. They were quick, efficient and the price was reasonable! Will surely keep them in mind if I ever need pest removal again.

Found a new and thriving hornets nest on the back of my house this morning. I called Nest Pest after reading the great reviews. 4 hours later, two technicians showed up (on a Saturday) and were ready to take on the nest. They were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and I thought the price was quite reasonable. The job was completed safely and efficiently they provided good education.

Thomas and his coworker were incredibly professional, hard working, and experts at what they do. They impressed not only me, but my neighbor as well who gladly accepted his business card. I’m glad to be in good hands with your technicians and company. I am looking forward to the $65 monthly services to keep the rats away from our front yard. The initial $525 service included eradicating and identifying burrows, and the courtesy follow up (scheduled a week after initial service) is already scheduled. Although the initial service was expensive, it's worth every cent. And $65 a month after is a great deal. Thank you again.

      About those Ants in your Kitchen…

      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.

      Pavement ants coming up through the cracks in a driveway. These guys make additional colonies that can sometimes be difficult to remove.


      There are lots of questions about ants, Nest Pest Control and pest control issues in general. Here are a couple of questions you might have.

      How long before the ant control treatments work?
      This all depends on the type of ant you have. Some species create satellite colonies and can take longer to destroy. Usually, two weeks is sufficient to notice a marked decrease in activity. However, it could take up to 4 weeks before the ants are fully under control again.
      How Long Will Ant Control treatments last?
      We guarantee that ants won’t return for at least four months. However, if you are on our regular service schedule, we can keep ants away for a lot longer.
      What ants are in Washington DC?
      While there are about 12,000 species of ant in the world, we only deal with a handful here in Washington DC. Pharaoh ants, little black ants, acrobat ants, ghost ants, pavement ants, carpenter ants and odorous house ants are the most common. If you are having a pard time identifying the type of ant in your home, call Nest Pest Control and we’ll inspect your home and ID the ant for you.
      Who will I talk to on the phone?
      Most of the time you will talk to the owner of Nest Pest Control, James. If he for some reason can’t answer, then you will speak with one of our dispatch technicians to set up an appointment at your home.
