Solve Your Ant Problem
Pickhardt Professional Services is a complete interior and exterior pest control company in Manatee, Sarasota and Hillsborough Counties. Do you need to take care of an ant problem at your home or office? From White-Footed, Ghost or Caribbean Crazy Ants, our trained staff can help identify your specific ant problem and the best way to eliminate these insects from your property.
You can identify a ghost ant by its tiny size of less than 1/16-inch, its dark head and thorax, and pale abdomen and legs. Ghost ant colonies can be medium to large in size and typically are located outdoors. If they are inside your home, they usually like to hide in dark or protected areas.
These ants are around 1/8-inch long with a distinguishing pale yellow color at the end of their legs. The white-footed ants develop huge colonies with multiple queens. Many times, satellite colonies will form and connect to each other by trails that extend from house to house.
Caribbean Crazy Ants
Pickhardt Professional Services is the only pest control company in the area that guarantees to eliminate your Caribbean Crazy Ant Infestation.
Caribbean Crazy ants are about 1/8-inch long and are covered with reddish-brown hairs. These ants can be difficult to control because they create enormous colonies that infest large areas of land. Caribbean Crazy ants are similar to fire ants with their invasive characteristics. Moreover, these ants are drawn to electrical currents such as transformers, televisions and other electrical equipment. If they do get into your home or office, they can actually short out electrical devices with their sheer numbers!
