Hi I'm Pete with Greenhouse Pest Management, we are Atlanta's true natural pest control company. How to get rid of ants in the carpet. Ants on the carpet is, it is a weird situation, because you don't necessarily need to treat the actual carpet. The best thing to do is to go outside, find the source that you are dealing with. So we know that this customer is dealing with ants that randomly come up here. So we have a chimney here so the best source is going outside, locating where that chimney is, pulling all that debris out from the outside, and eliminating those issues. Because the ants are always going to go back outside. Back to their nesting areas. So ants what that you see here is not your heavy issue. Always keep in mind understanding the biology, the habits, and the habits are that they are always going to be on the outside, and they are occasionally going to be on the inside. Perfect example is when I go out to customers homes, and I see that there is an ant issue the best things that I am going to do is go outside, rake the pine saw, rake that mulch, rake the pebbles whatever is outside, and those are where I find those ant issues. I treat that, and spawn treat that, and it always eliminates that issue just like that.
