Ants in the household can create big headaches for Pittsburgh area homeowners in a number of ways.

These pests love to tear into food packaging, contaminating anything they come into contact with. And if the potential health risk wasn’t enough, certain species such as carpenter ants are notorious for chewing up the wood on the floors and siding of homes. Left untreated, an ant infestation can quickly grow into a major headache that’s both difficult and expensive to fully eliminate.

Luckily, there is some good news: if you’re suffering from an ant infestation, Witt Pest Management has the tools and the training necessary to eliminate any ant problem.


Types of Ants Common In Greater Pittsburgh


Whether you choose one of our home protection plans or a short-term program, our process is the same:

Step #1: Property Inspection

In any pest control treatment, the first step is always a thorough inspection to find out where the problem lies and how severe the infestation has become. A Witt Pest Management technician will visit your property and perform a thorough inspection to identify any signs of ant activity in or around your home. This inspection helps the technician find out what type of ants you’re dealing with, where they might be hiding - and which areas of your home could be at risk. Remember that the Witt difference is to seek out the source not just the symptoms of your ant problem.

Step #2: Ant Defense

With your home inspected and the threat identified, it’s time to start working on a solution. Equipped with expert knowledge and the best tools in the industry, your Witt pest control technician will give your property a treatment that will stop ants in their tracks.

When you sign up for our service, Witt Pest Management will:

  • Locate any nest sites in or around your property

  • Spray ant trails and hills on the property to prevent future infestations

Ant control from Witt Pest Management is a one-time service designed to eliminate current ant activity in or around your home. Whether they’re in the kitchen, the bathroom, the pantry, or anywhere else on your property, rest assured: they won’t be for long.
