Reliable Ant Control For Your Home and Business

Controlling ants can almost seem like a losing battle. This common pest is known to find the smallest cracks a home may offer to the outside world in order to create an invasion. Just one small bit of a sweet food or a greasy substance is enough to attract ants, as can the presence of water. Because ants leave a chemical trail as they journey into a home, an entire colony can follow along behind.

That’s why having reliable ant control services you can contact if this pest begins to get out of control can help to protect your home. Consider these facts about this common household pest.

Ant colonies can be huge. There may be half a million ants living on your property right now. Just because most of the colony may live outside doesn’t mean that a weather change or a need for food or water won’t drive them into your home.

Ant colonies are persistent. The average lifespan for an ant is 7 years. A queen ant can live for up to 15 years. If the pest isn’t removed, then it will be around to stay for a long time.

• Most DIY efforts are not effective. The problem with DIY ant control is that it tries to block access points to the home or it removes the pests that are seen.

Some ants may seem harmless and only want some of the leftover crumbs that fall to the floor. Others may go after the food left out for a bed. Some species of ants, however, may actually attack the structure of your home and use it for food. That’s why having a local pest control expert available to help control the colonies that may be on your property is such a tremendous asset to have.

Ants come in different colors, shapes, and sizes. Each species requires a different approach. If you’re concerned about the number of ants you’ve seen coming into your home, then make today be the day that you give us a call. We can discuss inspection options, removal possibilities, and do so for a surprisingly affordable rate. There is never an obligation to discuss your concerns.

I had some huge Cluster flies in my apartment that just kept coming even with windows closed. Must have been somewhere in the house but Frank and Darryl helped me get rid of them. Darryl was very professional and took care of all of my concerns without any rush. I believe Frank is the manager and he followed up with me multiple times to make sure everything was okay. After 2-3 days the flies returned in much fewer numbers but this time they would die due to the medicine. Frank gave me another free follow up visit to address it! Darryl came again and did some more of his magic and now I do not see these disgusting flies anymore.Thank you Frank & Darryl!

I have nothing but good things to say for One Hour Pest Control. Our business unfortunately had a few roaches and we called our exterminator that we had used in the past and they never got back to us to schedule. I called One Hour Pest Control in a pinch and was immediately set up for the next day. Everyone that we dealt with went out of their way to be kind and they did an exceptional job. Couldn't recommend them enough!!

Amazing, Incredible Five Star Service! Look no further, these guys are, hands down, the best! Last night I spotted a small mouse in my apartment. I called first thing this morning and Frank got back to me right away. Within 1 hour, I had two guys here, who were the friendliest and sweetest guys ever! They were so reassuring that they would find the point of entry for me. They diligently went through my entire apartment, looking for droppings and identified the source of entry, which was behind my oven. Furthermore, they patched up any other hole they saw. Frank was in constant communication and the extremely helpful and professional. I can't thank One Hour Pest Control, Frank and his men enough.

The BEST!!!!! Here's why:I live in an apartment & I rent. My neighbors above me had a faulty pipe in the kitchen which eventually burst. This caused water damage to my kitchen cabinets which had to be changed for new ones. When the cabinets were changed, there were cracks around baseboard. This let the ? mice in! Well I'm afraid of em! ? I've been here 10+ years.. never had em! So I bought some name brand stuff. Didn't work! Called landlord who sent exterminator. Didn't work! Soo.. I called 1 hour pest control late Friday night. The gentleman I spoke with on the phone Mr. F was great! He assured me he could help! ? And he did! He set me up with Mr. D. whom was at my place 1st thing Saturday morning. Mr. D was on his hands & knees searching everywhere and everything! He set up all the goods to get those ?! And he explained everything to me. He told me to keep a look out, call if I needed to & he'd be back in a week for a follow up! Well... over the w.eek I did a real good ol Spring cleaning & kept a look out! Caught 2 ? fast!! ?? Mr. D. came back for the followup as promised a week later. Haven't seen any droppings or ? since! OMG! I can't thank you guys enough! Def 5 ?!Def would refer to a friend!Def worth the $$!Def caught them ??!!! ???

Communications with One Hour Pest control about our roach issue was easy and quick. I called, they asked me to send an email with my address, and when I asked some questions in the email, they called me back within 5 minutes to answer my questions. The exterminator got here exactly when we agreed. I was not home when the gentleman came but my husband said he was friendly and professional. He closed up holes,  and got behind things that we had not moved in quite a while (like the dishwasher).The gentleman even went through all of my cabinets and found that we had lots of beetles... we had NO idea. He got rid of them. The next morning, I picked up quite a few dead roaches and am still picking them up. .. so it's working.  I will definitely use them again if the roaches re-appear (which I am sure they will because I live in NYC) and there is a loyalty price for using their service even a year after the first treatment. I tried many treatments, sprays, gels, and none gave me the results that One Hour Pest Control did! Thank you guys!

I highly recommend these guys. My tech arrived 45 min after my frantic call about a mouse that slipped under my front door and was running around my apartment. I was literally screaming while we were on the phone. The tech filled 10 holes and cracks, set the sticky traps (and explained why the snap traps are bad - it breaks the skin and releases bacteria into the air we breathe). He came back the following day to drop off more sticky traps and...dispose of the mouse that was trapped!!! Huge relief! They are reliable, responsive and wonderful!

The whole experience from beginning to end has been truly fantastic! Frank's professionalism, helpfulness and kindness from the moment he picked up to phone till the moment the job was done was truly noticeable. The technician, Darryl, was also extremely professionalism and efficient. I was able to have an appointment a few hours after I first called, which was impressive. The job was done with expertise. I would use their services again in a heartbeat. And I would highly recommend them to friends and family. Thank you again guys!

Frank is amazing! He sent me a guy named Ray within 24 hours of my call, when I found bed bugs and had to have the place exterminated before I left for an international trip. The service was fast, thorough and fair. And the pricing can't be beat! Plus if there are any other issues within the first year of using their services, then you receive a MASSIVE discount! I'd recommend One Hour Pest Control to anyone who asks!!

I just moved into a sublet when I walked in, turned on the lights and found 3 roaches crawling in the kitchen. It was horrifying. It was 10:30pm on a Saturday night. I tried to call several places that said they were 24 hours but no one picked up. Finally I called One Hour and Frank picked up immediately and was very speedy and professional, understanding that I was pretty freaked out. He let me know not to worry. A technician was at my door at 11:30pm! The technician was very kind and thorough, spraying down the whole place and keeping an eye out. He stayed a little longer as a few bugs emerged and killed them and took them away! I slept well that night knowing One Hour Pest Control had the situation handled.

Excellent customer service and did a great job sealing up all the holes, putting around traps and inspecting my apartment. I saw a mouse around 9:30pm and called these guys to come out. They were here within an hour around 10:30pm and I got a call after to confirm everything went smoothly. They said they'll be following up too within the week.

Awesome company. We live in a brownstone with new construction and wanted to ensure all things pest related were in good shape.

Great job and very very nice people.

My husband and I called them last night within 2 hours we had 2 of the greatest guys helping us. Jimmy really knew his stuff! They moved the stove and found the holes! Immediately stuffed them and set up poison for the mouse. They also moved the fridge just to check. Unfortunately they didn't catch the little guy but this morning we found him stuck on one of the traps. Thank you guys so much! So professional and being open 24 hours in the city is a BIG PLUS!

One Hour Pest Control acted quickly after my call for help as I wanted my problem taken care of right away. I found them to be the only one open 24 hours a day and on weekends which is great! Ray and his colleague were very professional, took care of my needs and at my request came back 8 days later for a follow-up visit which made me feel better. I highly recommend One Hour Pest Control to anyone.

Great company! I saw the mouse in my apartment at 1am and I googled 24.7 pest services and I found Onehourpestcontrol. Frank picked up the phone and he was the nicest guy, who made sure that inspector will arrive early and was following up about if everything is good. Darryl, who came home to check on mice did a great job by closing all the holes and installing 30 ft of trim under the cabinets and he knew his stuff! Great company and people!
