How Do We Remove Them?

Once you give McMahon Exterminating a call in Evansville, Indiana we will bring a trained technician out to discover the issue and infestation, identify and develop a unique solution to your problem as every home and infestation is unique as some might require different or more intensive methods depending on the severity and location.

We remove them by discovering where they are nesting to get rid of the nest, if there are multiple nests we will need to further analyze and close off spaces that the ants are entering to help deter them from entering the home.

It is important to remember when dealing with large ant infestations near the home that one simple treatment will most likely not solve the issue in a lot of cases, instead we will need to asses and monitor the situation as it evolves, because ants might find newer entry points or might be resilient depending on the type of ant we are dealing. With McMahon's C.A.N. initiative and our three easy steps — Canvas the area, Act on those results, and Negate re-entry for the pest.
