They chew their way through floors, walls, and furniture which leads to the eventual breakdown of the entire house. No person can readily notice the infestation of termites in the home because they are naturally silent.

I Have Ants!
In the pictures, a Green Giant Pest Control technician is installing an ant bait station at our office in Fleetwood Pennsylvania. These bait stations do a great job of controlling ants before they get inside the building. The bait compartment is locked with a child resistant lid and the ants access the bait through holes in the stake. The bait stays dry even if the area is flooded with a few inches of rain – so it lasts a long time. Check out more of the article at http://greengiantpestcontrol.com/i-have-ants/.
