How Oak Pest Control Approaches Ant Control In McKinney

There’s no way to completely eliminate the presence of ants around your property. However, there are demonstratable methods for reducing their populations and controlling their growth over time. The McKinney pest control professionals at Oak Pest Control have everything you need to make short work of invading ants. From your very first call to our first application, you can trust our team to keep your needs in mind. 

The first step in our process for ant control in McKinney is to identify the species or colony in question. We may ask you to point out areas of activity so we can identify affected areas and make more informed decisions about your treatment needs. 

Please note there is a significant difference between certain ant species, including red ants vs. fire ants. Treatment approaches may vary according to the species in question, as infestation habits and colonizing behaviors are significantly different from one another. For example: 

  • Fire ants are extremely aggressive and attempt to attack when disturbed. In contrast, most red ants attempt to escape when threatened. 
  • Fire ant hills do not have primary entry points and grow to extreme sizes when left alone. However, most red ants build smaller nests with a prominent entry point. 
  • Fire ants can sting attackers with painful, pustule-forming venom. However, most red ants only have the ability to bite and cannot sting at all.
