Regardless of where you live in the inhabited world, there are likely ants standing by to annoy and harass you. Ants are one of the quintessential insects people think of when they hear the word pest.
They are a nuisance and known destroyer of food and property. Ants also spread diseases throughout your home or business. At Mecaf Termite & Pest Control, our Long Beach ant control experts offer the ant removal and treatment solutions you need to get your home pest-free.
As with most pests, the first important step to conducting a thorough extermination is identifying the ant species. Then, our team can set about creating an actionable plan.

The Importance of Professional Ant Identification & Removal
Sometimes, the ant control issue you’re experiencing is outside the home in your yard or garden. If you have ants ruining your yard, it’s time to bring in help from professional pest control specialists like our team at Mecaf Termite & Pest Control.
We know what you may be thinking: Why do I need to worry about ants if they are outside? The reality is that certain species of ants are unsafe to remain on your property, regardless of their location. The perfect example is the fire ant, which is a very dangerous ant species. They typically make their nests outdoors, and they can bite you and cause serious harm.
When fire ant nests are in your yard, they can easily be disturbed by children during playtime. When their mounds are disturbed, the ants work together to sting as a group, leading to multiple bites at once. In some cases, these bites can lead to severe allergic reactions in children and vulnerable adults. Many stings of toxin at once can lead to infections and, in extreme cases, death. Currently, one in 100 children suffers an allergic reaction when stung by a fire ant. You don’t want to ignore ant infestations simply because they are not inside your home.
