Difficult to control, ants are the primary pest to infest a home.

There are around one million ants per every human being, and only about half of the ant species have been named and identified.  Saint John’s Organic Farm may be surprised to learn that ants were the first farmers.  The Tropical Leafcutter ant turns leaves into pulp. The pulp is used to make a fungus garden, which is tended and harvested by worker ants. Although ants are savvy, there’s no room for us to share our living and working spaces. If you have ants that need taken care of, we’re waiting for your call.

Common Ants

Odorous Ants are a native ant species commonly found throughout the United States. They earn their name by producing a foul “rotten coconut” odor when crushed. At about  1⁄16  to ⅛ inches long, they are black or brown in color. Inside, they tend to make their nests in walls, crevices, sinks, cupboards, etc. Outside, they can be found in shallow, exposed soil often located beneath bricks, sidewalks, etc.

Black Carpenter Ants are commonly found in many parts of the world. Ranging from ¼ to ⅜ inches long, they are dark brown to black in color. You can often find them outside in areas containing dead wood, or they can be found inside window sills or walls. While they do not eat wood, they do, however, damage wood by hollowing it out to create their nests.

Pavement Ants are native to Europe but were introduced as unwanted pests to North America. At ⅛  to  1⁄16  inches long, they are blackish-brown with paler legs and antenna. As their name indicates, they can be found under pavement, sidewalks, stones or next to buildings. They can also be found in walls and under floors.

Ant Control Emmett

Ants can multiply very quickly. Not only are they destructive and annoying in nature, they can easily invade even the tightest containers. At Get Lost Pest Control, we eliminate ants by treating inside and outside areas with effective ant control measures that last up to 3 months.

When treating ants, we use a two-step approach. The first step is to spray a pest control product which will kill the ants on contact. Our second step is to strategically place ant bait inside and outside your home. The bait attracts ants, they collect the bait, and then take it back to share it with other ants in the colony.


If ants are invading your home, contact us at (208) 949-1003. We will not only inspect your property for common areas where they nest, but provide you with effective ant control Emmett treatments to effectively eliminate any unwanted infestations.
