Keeping Your Home Ant Free

All species of ants have three things in common: the need for food, shelter, and water. Using a household ant killer only takes care of a small portion of the ant infestation for a temporary amount of time. Colonies of ants and their queens can live six feet underground and will continue to reproduce. Professional ant pest control is necessary and Tri-X will be there to help you determine the source of the ant infestation and get rid of the problem for good.
