How to Get Rid of Ants?
Ant problems can seemingly pop up at any time, but they are more common in the warm months. Locating and eliminating an ant infestation is relatively straightforward, but certain steps must be taken to ensure effective ant removal. We recommend removing any food sources out in the open and storing them in airtight containers or in the fridge. We also suggest taking out any trash or recycling. This will help control the infestation until we arrive.
Contact our team right away if ants are bothering you in your home or business.
Ant Identification and Inspection
There are well over 10 000 different species of ants, but property owners will only need to worry about 10 of them. When you call us, sometimes we will ask clients to take a few notes about the ant's appearance so we can prepare correctly. Antenna shape, color, and the number of body segments are all key identifiers.
We can help with the infestation of:
- Carpenter ants
- Fire ants
- Crazy ants
- Pharaoh ants
These are the most common ants we encounter.
Once we know which type of ant has colonized your property, we can take the necessary steps for removal. The inspection process involves walking around the property, looking for entrance points, and finding the anthill or nest. We take notes and provide maintenance tips to property owners that help prevent ants going forward. For the most part, cleanliness both inside and outside the property is the key to ant prevention.

Understanding the Implications of an Ant Infestation
Ants are among the most common insects, and it's not unusual to see them crawling outdoors or in your home or business. While a tiny ant may not seem like something to worry about, ant infestations can have significant implications on your property. Let's explore a few.
Most of the time, ants will enter your home or business property in search of food and shelter. It is very common for ants to infest your food supply, and you could find them crawling around in your dried goods if you're not careful. By properly storing and disposing of your food, you can prevent an infestation.
Ants may be strong, but they're also mighty. Carpenter ants, specifically, can tunnel their way into wood and create nests. Infestations left unattended can have a detrimental impact on the structural integrity of your building over time.
Don’t let ants wreak havoc on your home or business. Action Pest Control is here to help you get the results you want. We’ll keep your property safe and protected from ants, implementing a range of preventative measures to minimize the chances of future infestations. If you need to put your mind at ease, we’re here to help.

Residential Ant Control
Ants can be a lot more than a nuisance when they get into your home. Carpenter ants, for example, can damage your home's structural integrity by slowly eating away at its wood frame. Fire ants, which typically stay in the backyard, can pose serious health risks to children and pets who are unaware of their anthill. We serve the local community by dealing with ant infestations, including:
- Carpenter ants
- Field ants
- Fire ants
- Odorous house ants
- Pavement ants
- Pharaoh ants
Our strategy is to eliminate ant colonies from the inside out. We use a joint technique of spraying and ant traps to provide the most comprehensive results available. The spraying is designed to kill ants outside the hill on contact. The ant traps are designed to give the ants what appears to them to be food. When they bring it into the colony, every ant that ingests it will die. It is a process that may take several treatments and a number of tactics, but the end result will be the same: you will reclaim your home and property.
Commercial Ant Control
As a business owner, the last thing you need is an ant infestation. Nothing will drive away customers faster than pests. If your Maple Grove business has an ant infestation, call the pest extermination experts at Action Pest Control. With our help, your ant invasion will be history.

Pest Control for All Types of Ants
Our skill and expertise mean we have what it takes to eliminate any type of ant infestation. No matter the size, scope, or species, our techniques are proven to work, giving you total coverage to protect you from all types of ants.
Not sure what kind of ants you have? Read a bit more about some of the most common types below:
- Carpenter ants: Carpenter ants are the largest type of ant, with bulbous heads and bodies ranging from ¼ to ½ inch in length. They are usually black or brown, and tend to forage for meats, greasy foods, and sweet foods. Be warned: they can do significant damage to wood structures, so act fast if you suspect you have them.
- Field ants: Field ants are commonly confused with carpenter ants, but there are a few differences to look out for. They tend to be a little smaller—between 1/10 and ¼ of an inch—and they can be a mix of red, black, or brown. They also emit an odor when crushed. Field ants like to nest outside. They can also take over a carpenter's nest and cause further damage to wood structures. They bite when disturbed, so it's a good idea to steer clear if you see them.
- Pharaoh ants: Pharaoh ants are small—roughly 1/16 of an inch. They have pale bodies, usually yellow and sometimes with red or black markings. They tend to invade homes to feast on grease, crumbs, and sweet foods. They tend to build complex colonies that are tough to eliminate without the help of a professional. For persistent problems, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
- Pavement ants: Pavement ants are usually around 1/10 of an inch, or a bit bigger, and light brown to black in color. Their appendages are lighter in color than their body—a sure sign it's not a carpenter or field ant. True to their name, pavement ants tend to appear around concrete slabs, especially in cracks and crevices. They don't usually sting, but they can when provoked.

In addition to ant control, we also offer a wide range of pest control and extermination services. Whenever we do an inspection in homes and businesses, we always check for the signs of other infestations. Other pests that we frequently deal with include:
