A special division of Killroy Pest Control
Has your home or office been invaded by an army of ants? Killroy can solve your problem. There are four species of ants common to our area. A single ant nest can produce hundreds of thousands of ants. These species of ants have no natural predators in this area, and when they decide to come indoors, it can become a nasty problem.
Argentine Ants (most common in kitchens, famous for "trails")
Carpenter Ants (excavate galleries and damage wood structures)
Carpenter Ants are some of the largest ants that you may encounter around your Bay Area home. They prefer to create their colonies inside of wood and excavate the wood for nesting space. Frequently, a colony of Carpenter Ants will leave little piles of sawdust or "frass" beneath areas in which they are actively working as they expand the cavities where they will live and create channels for movement. While they do not actually consume wood as food, they can be a nuisance and eventually cause significant damage. Treatment involves an inspection of all the active areas, as well as the environment around the infested structure, as they can move great distances from the main colony, moving mostly at night.
