Your Premier Source for Ant Removal in Merrimack Valley and Southern NH


Fast, Effective Ant Extermination for Homes and Businesses

Ant Control & Extermination

Where there are a couple, there are hundreds more behind your walls! Ants colonize quickly and can take over your home or business FAST. That’s why you need to call us at the first sign of infestation.

Ants are attracted to food, particularly sugar, so cleanliness (or lack of it) is a key factor in their presence. Dirty dishes in the sink…spilled sugar in a cabinet…crumbs on the floor…all these things attract ants. In fact, poor sanitation is the top cause of ant infestation, as these pests seek out a food source and a place to call home.

  • Your problem may start off with a few foragers but ants can become a much bigger problem if they establish colonies in walls, lawns, or under your home’s foundation.
  • Getting them removed quickly is essential, as they will breed by the hundreds.
  • Don’t assume you can kill off an entire ant colony one by one. They need to be dealt with en masse.
