Why Are Ants in My House?
Food and water are the main reasons ants will come into your home. They are food motivated and travel together, meaning that once one finds its way to your kitchen, so do all its friends! Shelter is another reason ants might come into your home. If it’s especially hot or cold, or they are seeking escape from predators, your home looks like a safe haven, even the dishwasher can be an ant sanctuary. Are you experiencing an ant problem? Don’t worry! Our team of highly trained pest professionals uses the latest techniques and safest practices to provide a solution that will solve your ant problem, regardless of the species that’s currently making a home in your residence.
How many species of ants exist?
Thousands. There are more than 12,000 different species of ants around the world, with over 1,000 of them found here in North America. That’s a lot of ants! Knowing which one is in your home or business is important in creating a treatment plan. Be on the lookout for these common ant species here in North Carolina: black ants, field ants, fire ants, carpenter ants, and odorous house ants. If you’ve spotted an ant or have been dealing with ants for a while now, call us for a free inspection. We’ll be able to come up with a custom treatment plan in a pressure-free environment for your specific situation
Can Ants Damage My Home?
While it’s not common, it is possible. Your average black ant probably won’t do much damage, but other ants, like carpenter ants, are known to damage wooden structures with their tunneling. If left untreated, your home could sustain damage, so it’s better to treat your ant problem sooner rather than later.
How Do I Know What Species of Ant I Have?
Some are easily identifiable, like the fire ant or the black ant. Other species can be harder to identify. Our pest control experts can help identify the species taking over your home or business when they come to your residence for your free inspection.
