More About Ants
Ants are a social insect commonly found in our service area. They belong to the Formicidae group and live in large colonies with many other insects. It is estimated that the world is home to 14,000 or more species, but 12,000 have been identified. When you spot an ant, you’ll know it because it has elbowed antennas and unique body structures. They have a narrow waist. Ant colonies are successful because each ant is going to work diligently to serve the colony. Whether they’re searching for food or building tunnels, they’re going to work together.
What Causes Ants?
Ants build large colonies underground with hundreds or thousands of ants living in the same colony. Ants want to be outside, but they will travel a long distance to search for food. In some cases, they’ll travel more than 300 feet to forage for food. It is not unreasonable to think that ants are going to enter your home in the future. If they suspect they can find food in your home, they’ll enter through gaps near door frames, windows, plumbing pipes, and eaves.
Are Ants Dangerous To Humans?
Although ants will create several problems, they’re not dangerous to humans. The biggest problem is that ants will become a nuisance. Also, you have to worry about them damaging your belongings and home. If they contaminate your food, you’ll want to dispose of it for your peace of mind. However, they are not known for transmitting diseases.
How To Get Rid Of Ants
Ant colonies have many nests that are connected. To get rid of them, you must treat all of these nests. As a result, this makes the treatment process more complicated. If you miss a nest during the process, you will likely regret it. The colony will return, reproduce, and continue destroying your property. Our company has a reliable smart ant program designed to tackle this problem. We provide inspections, treatments, and follow-up visits to get rid of the ants for you.

Preventing Ant Infestations At Home
One of the best ways to deal with ants is to keep them out of your home. If you can do that, you won’t need to hire an exterminator. The only problem is that keeping them away won’t be easy. Start by dealing with the cracks, holes, gaps, and cracks around your home. Once you’ve done that, clean your home thoroughly. Deal with crumbs so ants won’t be able to find food in your home.
