Ant Pest Control
Ants are common pests to encounter worldwide, and of course, North Texas is no exception. These tiny pests will enter buildings through minor gaps and cause damage by their feeding activity on electrical wiring and wood structures which can pose a fire hazard. Colonies are attracted to sweet foods but eat meat, nuts, seeds and grease.
Ants congregate on decks, sidewalks, steps and patios. They can even grow inside walls, ceilings, below floors and inside of furniture. If you see them parading over a kitchen counter, overrunning pet food bowls, pantries and cupboard space, wood shavings or damp areas in your property, you will be facing an infestation.
Colonies can range in size from a few hundred to several thousand ants and are often seen in large groups when not nesting or when they’re foraging for food. Dead or alive, they leave odorous secretions, which will bring in more unwelcome pests. Smashing them dead is no good.
Multiple species of ant colonies are present in Texas. The most common ants in the Dallas-Forth Worth area include:
- Fire Ants
- Carpenter Ants
- Odorous House Ants
- Little Black Ants
- Pharaoh Ants
- Crazy Ants
- Argentine Ants
- Rover Ants

Carpenter Ant Treatment
Carpenter ant pest control is a serious business. While they do not pose a health risk to humans or pets, they are nonetheless unwelcome guests in any home. Carpenter ants can cause significant damage to both indoor and outdoor structures because they are wood-destroying insects like termites.
When you find a carpenter ant colony inside your property, you must exterminate it immediately. Buzz Kill Pest Control professionals have the expertise and training to treat and eliminate carpenter ant colonies and prevent future infestations. We will work with you to keep your property safe from these tiny saboteurs before it’s too late.
Fire Ant Treatment
Like carpenter ants, fire ants are a nuisance pest. However, unlike carpenter ants, fire ants are far more aggressive to humans. Fire ants nest in the ground and construct mounds of earth to house their colony. The mounds can reach a height of 12 inches or more. Fire ants are very aggressive when disturbed and swarm and sting anything near their nest.
Fire ants often inhabit yards, and their mounds can be quite large. Their bites will leave behind a painful hive. If not careful, multiple bites will happen at once. The bites can develop a severe allergic reaction and risk anaphylaxis. These health risks make clearing out any fire ant nest a high priority for home and business owners.
