One of the biggest nuisances to a Dallas or Fort Worth home or office is an ant infestation. We’ve all seen the line of ants creeping through a property and wanted to take care of the problem, only to find them popping up again after using a DIY ant killer product.
Fortunately, through the knowledge and effective methods from Buzz Kill Pest Control, your year-round residential and commercial ant infestation can be an issue of the past.
Why Are Ants Such a Problem?
Not only are ants invasive creatures that will take up any available crevice in your home, but they also pose other serious problems that could result in health issues and even property damage.
Ants Contaminate Food
From Pavement Ants to Odorous House Ants, these pests will quickly make their way into your home and help themselves to a serving of your favorite packaged foods and even your trash bins.
The trek to and through your home could have brought ants through several hazardous materials like animal feces. Keep in mind that when you find ants crawling around in your kitchen and other areas of the home, these contaminants are definitely crawling around with them.
Cleanliness isn’t the only area of your home that ants infect. If your home falls victim to a Carpenter Ant infestation, you have a structural problem on your hands. These ants are attracted to moisture and are commonly found in the bathroom, crawl spaces, or any other damp and dark area of your home.
Once these ants find some damp wood they can call home, they quickly build their tunnels inside of the wood and spread out throughout your building’s structure. Keep in mind, that property damage from ants can take years to develop, but letting this problem go will result in damages that are difficult and expensive to repair.

- Sections of your pantries and other spaces crawling with the critters
- Rustling noises inside of your walls
