Where do ants go during the Winter?

 

Ants spend most of the winter hibernating in trees or underground. Many ant species’ body temperature is directly related to the outside temperature. Therefore, when it becomes cold outside, ants become slower, sluggish, and move much more inefficiently. For this reason, ants choose to spend the warmer parts of the year loading up on food and calories before finding a warm place to rest all winter. These patterns make your home vulnerable to an infestation during the summer, and all year around. If your home is kept warm and stocked with food during the winter, you are just as likely to see an ant during cold months as you are during the warm ones.

 

Do ants breathe?

 

Ants breathe, but not in the way that you may think. Since ants, or any insects for that matter, do not have lungs, they do not breathe like mammals do. Instead, ants have spiracles which are openings to their abdomen that allows a sufficient amount of oxygen to pass through their body. Ants rarely get out of breath from walking far distances or performing challenging tasks, instead their spiracles adapt to allow more oxygen to pass through when it is needed.

How do ants get in my house?

 

Ants are very tiny insects, and have the ability to slip between just about any crack or crevice entering your home. The best way to keep them out of your home is to minimize possible entry points. Places where outside wires enter the house are easy places for ants to make their way in. Not having proper insulation on doors and windows are also an entry point. Also, be sure to minimize the amount of shrubbery or trees that have points of contact with your house. A stray tree limb leaning against a window is like main street for ants entering your home. By eliminating these various points of entry, it makes it much hard for ants to invite themselves in.
