Frequently Asked Questions About Ants
What are ants?
Ants are pesky insects that most people can easily identify, mostly because ants live all around us in large numbers. Ants typically live together in impressive colonies, as they are social creatures, and these colonies tend to have both indoor and outdoor nesting sites. Ants are the most active in warm weather and when there is plenty of food and moisture available to them.
In our area of Henderson, NV, the most problematic types of ants we deal with are sugar ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. While ants are primarily known as nuisances, widespread infestations may be dangerous, and some species can present additional problems. Professional pest control is the best thing to deal with these pest invaders.
Are ants dangerous?
Most ants are simply nuisances, but it’s important to note that ants can spread disease. As ants scavenge across surfaces and food storage areas, they may track in bacteria and pathogens, resulting in sickness.
Ant species like the carpenter ant are highly problematic due to their wood-chewing behaviors; once this pest invades your property’s wooden structures, they chew and tunnel away at the wood, hollowing it out and resulting in expensive damages.
Why do I have an ant problem?
Ants flock to human structures in search of food sources, and once they discover a food source, they will stay until it is gone or until we utilize ant control tactics to remove them. If you find there is an ant problem on your property, you are likely attracting ants with left-out food, excess moisture, or easy spaces to nest around indoor or outdoor areas. Removing these attractants helps to deter ant infestation.
Where will I find ants?
Ants may be found both indoors and outdoors. This pest will forage for food in gardens, compost areas, trash cans and waste disposal areas, near recycling bins, or pet food bowls. Ants will also pursue any crumbs of food, and they might invade kitchens and food storage spaces while they scavenge. Carpenter ants will also be found in wooden structures around your property.
