Ant Pest Control in San Diego

Termidor Kills Ants in San Diego

Most of our natural ant species in San Diego have been displaced by the Argentine ant, which was introduced to California in the early twentieth century. These black ants nest several feet under ground, though they sometimes nest in cracks of concrete walls and boards. Unlike most species of ants, they don’t compete with each other, further increasing their ability to infest your home.

Black ants are a common household pest in San Diego, entering structures in search of water or food. These ants typically enter during the hot season but will come inside during periods of heavy rainfall. License to Kill is prepared to provide an efficient solution to your ant problem.

Interior Ant Treatments

Our licensed and qualified technician will inspect the interior of your property with you to identify all problem areas. After identifying your target hot spots, your service technician will then treat the cracks and crevices, plumbing voids, and other areas throughout the home where ants have become a nuisance. Your technician will apply a low toxicity ant bait where ant activity is detected. We apply ant baits as needed around door entrances, plumbing voids and some cabinets. The ants will then take the bait back to the nest and regurgitate it for the others. This process will destroy the colony from the inside, in areas that traditional pesticide cannot reach.

Exterior Ant Treatments

After the interior of your home has been treated, our licensed service technician will inspect the exterior of the home to identify sources of the ant infestation. Once problem areas have been identified, the technician will treat the home’s foundation as well as a 6-8 foot perimeter around the home. The technician will also treat around windows, doors, trash containers and other potential entry points. In some cases, your License-To-Kill service technician may also treat near your pool area or fence line to ensure control.

5 star review

"License to kill got rid of the mice in my garage and the ants in the patio! I tried another "big name" company first but they were rude and blamed me for their lack of success. License to Kill came out and found out where the mice were coming in from, fixed it and got rid of the mice inside. They also eliminated my ant problem within a couple weeks time! Job well done!!!"

5 star review

"Over summer my home was covered in ants. The ants were relentless. Daily I would use chemicals and store bought insect killer, nothing worked. I know I need a professional company but was afraid of the high costs in case the ants returned. I contacted License to Kill. They were amazing! Price was very reasonable and I haven't had a problem since!"

5 star review

"I was invaded with ants. A friend recommend License to Kill. I called and they came out the same day. The tech used bait inside my home because I'm chemically sensitive. He treated outside and recommended to trim trees back. They come out every month to treat outside and kill my ants."

5 star review

"We never write reviews, but our experience with License to Kill was AMAZING. The employee that was sent out to take care of our ant issue was extremely thorough in explaining the different ant behaviors, and then explained the treatment program and how it would work. 2 weeks later, not a sign of an ant. THANKS LICENSE TO KILL."

My wife is terrified of spiders but she can now rest in peace knowing that our home is secured and we didn't have to pay an arm and a leg.
