Ants: The reason for an ant infestation in our dwellings is very simple. Ants love the same food we do. Although ants do not necessarily carry diseases they create a risk of contaminating your foodstuff. In addition to the unhygienic problems that occur, some species of tropical ant are known to bite when aggravated. Pest control treatments for carpenter ants, pharaoh ants, pavement ants and more. We will identify the pest and offer various options for treatment. We provide interior or exterior pest control solutions and offer several types of ant control treatments. From tiny ants like pharaoh ants to large black ants like carpenter ants we will take care of all.
Of all insects that infest buildings, ants are the most common. There are many different species of ant. Each is unique in terms of nesting sites, habits, characteristics and feeding preferences. It’s important to determine the exact species before trying to eradicate them, as they have different colony systems. In some cases, if a colony is scattered they can rebuild it very quickly, potentially giving you a larger problem than you had originally.
Ants feed on practically every kind of food but those entering homes are often looking for sweets and/or protein-containing substances.
More than a dozen pathogenic bacteria have been found on pharaoh ants and they can spread these into your food.
Ants live in colonies consisting of:
- An egg-laying female (Queen)
- Short-lived males and workers (sterile female)
- Foragers in gardens or kitchens (Workers)
What to Do in Case of Ants Infestation:
Entry: Ants can enter through even the tiniest cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food substances in the kitchen and pantry.
Pheromone trails: Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food source.
Nest locations: They can nest anywhere in and around your home or office; in lawns, walls, stumps, foundations, and even under concrete slabs.
Colony size: A colony can contain thousands of Ants and whole colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened.
Colony Lifetime: A colony can live a relatively long lifetime. Worker ants may live seven years and the queen may live as long as 15 years.
Do-it-yourself ineffectiveness: Most do-it-yourself ant control approaches only kill the ants you see and are ineffective as a long-term solution.
How to Get Rid of Ants:
Clean up food and drink spills immediately.
Rinse out cans or bottles before putting them into the recycling bin.
Keep food stored tightly.
Pick up pets’ food at night and don’t feed them outdoors.
Seal cracks around doors and windows and keep gutters and downpipes clean.
Successful, long-term ant control requires more than just a surface spray.
