Ant Control In Riverside, CA

Ant Pest Control Riverside CA

Argentine ants devour a darkling beetle

Ants can be a major nuisance pest.  They can enter our homes in masses in just a few hours, targeting our food and water.  If their nests are disturbed outside, some ants, such as fire ants, will aggressively defend it and attack their intruders.

Once inside, ants seem to linger around.  You’ll find them along the ceiling, in the cabinets, in the sink, and in multiple rooms.  Products sold over the counter kill the ants you spray, but fail to eliminate the thousands outside ready to come in.

Hiring Go-Pher The Kill to perform ant control is the first step in ridding your home or business of ants.  We are trained to treat the most important areas and to use the most effective products. Our products and service will help to eliminate the ant colony and keep your home or business ant free.
