The general ant control powders and sprays offered at local hardware stores cannot account for different ant species.

Understandably, homeowners might wonder why professional treatment is so critical when there are so many over-the-counter sprays at supermarkets. However, anyone who has ever tried to get rid of ants this way knows that it is pretty ineffective. Residents will spray multiple times, but ants will keep returning until the cold season arrives – which is unfortunately very short in Utah.
The reason that these generic products are not helpful is that they only get rid of a small trail of ants at the surface. The hundreds of thousands of ants that are hiding beneath the surface will not be bothered in the slightest. This means new armies lining the sink every morning unless proven, professional eradication is employed.

Types of Ants in Utah
From far away, the tiny ants scurrying around the floor may all look the same. However, there are actually over 1,000 distinct species across the country. The reason why knowing the type of insects is so important is that alternate techniques may be required for different ants. For example, carpenter ants will not go after the food laying around on the countertop, but will go for the cabinets themselves.
Little piles of “sawdust” droppings often indicate that carpenter ants are nearby. Fire ants, on the other hand, are known to be extremely aggressive, leaving painful bites and marks on anyone who tries to interfere. Odorous house ants will leave a nasty stench as they are squashed, and killing one can leave an unpleasant mark. Leave specialized ant control techniques to experts who know the best methods to use.
Some of the many species of ants that could be infesting a home include:
- Pyramid ants
- Fire ants
- Carpenter ants
- Odorous house ants
- Pharaoh ants
- Pavement ants
- Argentine ants
- Harvester ants
- Field ants
- Velvety tree ants
When Do Ants Invade a Property?
Many professionals will say that ant season occurs during the summer. The warmth of this season and the long hours of daylight make ants seek out water sources, even more than food. However, there is no particular time that brings an influx in Utah, because all seasons are ant seasons in this hot state. Without the relief of a winter freeze, ants can keep multiplying if they are not stopped by professionals like those at Prime Pest and Lawn.
We are ready to help homeowners clear away ants with reliable Salt Lake City ant control, so get in touch at (385) 438-2920.
