Ants receive top billing for the #1 nuisance pest in the United States, according to PestWorld. There are 700+ ant species found in the U.S., however only 25 of these ant species routinely invade structures. By nature, ants are social insects usually building nests underground. Led by a queen, ant colonies consist of a worker caste system. Although ants are attracted to sweet food sources, they will consume most anything that is readily available. Ants have three separate body parts consisting of the head, thorax and pinched abdomen. Ants often invade a structure in search of moisture, food and shelter.Ants are very active in many surrounding cities such as Hemet, San Jacinto, Menifee, Murrieta, Temecula, Winchester, French Valley, Canyon Lake, Perris, Nuevo, Beaumont, Banning, and more.

Initial Ant Control Service
Effective ant control measures begin with a phone call to AmeriGuard Pest Defense for a free ant control quote over the phone. During the initial ant treatment service, our experienced and licensed technician will perform a thorough inspection of your landscape and structure to identify any and all ant trails, both exterior and interior. These exterior trails will be targeted during an ant treatment service with a special product specifically for the unique satellite behavior of argentine ants, called Termidor.
Lasting Ant Control
AmeriGuard Pest Defense provides lasting ant control by using Termidor, which spreads through the colony like a virus, effectively killing off the ant nests. AmeriGuard Pest Defense is a Termidor Certified Professional company. Only a Termidor certified company can treat your home with Termidor. Termidor may also be used with bait products.
The social aspect of the nature of Argentine ants makes them a prime target for Termidor. Termidor controls ants through direct and indirect contact. Ants are unable to detect Termidor and ingest and contact it as they continue with their normal activities. The infected ant becomes a carrier of Termidor and thus the “Transfer Effect” begins with ants unknowingly spreading the active ingredient between the colony. Termidor affects the ants between 1-3 days, with control of most ant species occurring within the first week after the initial treatment.
