Ant Control & Barrier Program

Ants are one of the most common pests and most ant problems can be treated from the outside of your house. If you don’t need our full Organic Pest Control program, we offer an Ants only Barrier Program for ant control.

Ant treatment to prevent ants from entering your house or building

How our Ant Barrier Program Works:

Ants live in colonies and the average ant colony contains thousands of individual ants. Using 100% organic granules, our tech treats around the perimeter of your home three times a year. The ants take the granular bait back to their colony and it kills the entire colony.

If at any time you have any problems with ants no worries, our guarantee has you covered! Simply give us a call and we will come out and retreat. We pride ourselves on having the best customer service in the pest control industry.

Our Ant Control will kill Argentine Ants, Thief Ants, Pharaoh Ants, Little Black Ants, Pavement Ants, Odorous House Ants, Crazy Ants. Fire ants and Carpenter ants are not covered by our Ant Barrier Program.

Please call to discuss alternative Ant Treatment options to eradicate these pests. For additional information please call 703-621-7116 to discuss Ant Pest Control “near me” or email us at information@backyardbugpatrol.com

Odorous House Ants can have many colonies with many queen ants in and around your home. They “eat” honeydew from plants. They enter your home from the vegetation around the perimeter of your home while in search of “food”. To help us help you, please try to keep vegetation from contacting your home where it gives ants and other bugs an easy pathway to your home.

Pavement Ants, also known as Mason Ants are similar to Odorous House Ants as they also have many queens. Their colonies are found under concrete slabs, sidewalks, driveways, and other paved areas. They can also be found in and under basements. They will come into your home for food. They seem to prefer a lot of the same foods that we eat…sweet and greasy!

Crazy Ants get their name from their erratic behavior. They look like they are running around aimlessly but I can assure you, there is a method to their madness! They often travel a far distance from their large colony searching for food.

Pharaoh Ants get their name as they were falsely thought to be the cause of the plague in Egypt. They roam far and wide and can be a challenge to control.

5 Ways to Keep Ants Out of Your Home:

  1. Keep surfaces in your home clean. Don’t leave dirty dishes sitting out!
  2. Don’t leave food sitting out. Keep food in sealed containers with lids.
  3. Keep an eye on your pet food sitting out.
  4. Don’t leave standing water in or around your home.
  5. If you see a trail of ants clean the trail so they can’t follow the chemical scent.
  6. Make sure the outside of your home doesn’t have any vegetation touching the house to prevent easy access from vegetation to your house structure for Ants and other pests.
