Buckeye Wildlife Solutions – Ant Removal & Control Services
Columbus, OH and the surrounding areas are prime real estate for ant colonies. What many Central Ohio locations lack in forested area, they make up for with plentiful housing structures. Ants are capable of making their way into houses, sheds, and more in search of food and shelter. Ohio’s climate makes it a hotspot for ant activity during the warmer months. The sheer size of many ant colonies makes them a hassle to deal with. The longer the ants are allowed to roam free, the more damage they can do to your property. If you are in the midst of an ant issue, don’t delay – call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions at 844-544-9453!

Our Ant Removal Services – The BWS Advantage
The primary objective when dealing with colonies of ants is to locate and destroy every nest on the property. This can be very difficult, as ants will travel incredible distances when searching for food. Some colonies may even invade your house from the outside, bringing food from your kitchen back to their nests. Our staff will first survey the property in order to pick up on nest locations and behavioral patterns. Once we locate and destroy each nest, the ants are basically trapped until they regroup and create a new nest. This is the obvious time to exterminate the colonies, as they have essentially nowhere to run to. Once each nest is destroyed and the ants are exterminated, all signs of the ants will be removed from your property.

Ant Background & Biology
Central Ohio is home to several types of ant, the most common being carpenter ants and odorous house ants. Carpenter ants are relatively large, blackish colored insects which travel in colonies. They vary in individual size from 0.3″ to 1″ long. Carpenter ants eat away at wood in hopes of creating shelter for their nests. The ants prefer wood which is slightly wet due to leakage, flooding, or otherwise as it makes for easier burrowing. This makes Central Ohio the perfect location for colonies of carpenter ants. Odorous house ants are slightly smaller in size, but differ in that they produce a “rotten coconut” odor when crushed – making them burdensome to kill.
Ant colonies number in the thousands, and multiple colonies can exist within a single home. Ants will damage the structure of houses and sheds by eating through the wood to make room for nests. Residential buildings are perfect for housing large ant colonies, as food is usually kept in a centralized location – making for easy access. Ant problems tend to worsen over time. A professional wildlife removal service will be able to handle your issue fully and quickly. Our staff is fully trained and licensed to handle ant removals. In a field where many companies go in blind, make the safe choice for you and your property. Call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions at 844-544-9453 for expert removal service.
How Difficult Would it Be to Remove Ants Myself?
We do not recommend trying to remove colonies of ants on your own. Although you aren’t at major physical risk in terms of safety, you risk allowing the colonies to grow larger and cause more damage if you can’t effectively exterminate them. Do-it-yourself wildlife removal companies sell hundreds of ineffective traps and poisons – none of which work as well as field-trained expert service. Our staff’s knowledge of behavioral patterns as well as situational recognition allows us to develop the most effective extermination plan after one survey of the property. Don’t fool around with large ant colonies, or your problems are guaranteed to multiply. For expert removal service, call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions today at 844-544-9453!
