The best way to get rid of ants permanently is with professional Manchester & Surrounding Areas pest control and ant extermination because we have all the right tools and knowledge. While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything ants can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.
You must control ants because they can create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Fox Pest Control has the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively provide ant control in Manchester & Surrounding Areas.
Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp. You need to control fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants - they are among those stinging ants that live in the United States.
Carpenter ants. You must exterminate carpenter ants because they can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.
Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings.
The main difference is the size. While most ants in Manchester & Surrounding Areas are about ⅛ inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to ½ inch, about four times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.
I have to say I am VERY impressed with the service we have received from Fox Pest control of Manchester so far! I've had other companies come out since we bought our house in 2013 and didn't hire any of them for various reasons. From the door knock by Alex to the in home service by Leah the experience has been exquisite so far. Leah was incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions and had a smile on her face the entire time and you just don't see that very often. That kind of service creates trust in both the person and the brand so thank you and well done! I will absolutely recommend this company!

Ryan, from Fox, showed up on my doorstep yesterday. I had been considering a pest service for a while so his timing was perfect. I listened to his pitch, it sounded good, but I wanted to sleep on it. He was not pushy and said that he would come back today to see what I had decided. I did some research since I had never heard of the company before and reviews seemed good. When Ryan returned I signed up. Within an hour, Keith was at my door for my first treatment. He was friendly and easy to talk to and ask questions. He explained what he was doing and why and pointed out some damage that I hadn't noticed. I am very pleased with the service so far. It was just my first service so I can't say how effective it is as yet.

Nick and Dave treated our home. They were very courteous and knowledgeable about their work. They took their time to explain what they were going to do, why they were doing it, and addressed any questions that I had. Could not have asked for a better experience. I highly recommend Fox Pest Control.
