Why Are There Ants in My Home?
Just like your teenage child or that co-worker who’s always bugging you for snacks, ants are constantly on the hunt for food and water. Once they discover that you have an abundance in your home or office, they’ll come in search of it. Ants also leave trails for each other, so when one ant finds its way to your dishwasher or countertop, it signals to the others that they’ve hit the jackpot, and all its friends follow.
Shelter could be another reason ants come into your house, especially if it’s extremely hot or cold outside. If you have ants in your home, our team is specially trained to handle the different varieties of species and implement an effective treatment plan for you.
How Many Species of Ant Exist?
Speaking of species… There are tens of thousands of ant species, including more than 1,000 here in North America! Because there are so many different types, treatment plans can’t all be the same. Some ants respond to treatments differently than others, meaning what works for one won’t always work for the other. Some of the most common ones we have here in Winston Salem include black ants, fire ants, field ants, carpenter ants, and house ants. Whether you’ve spotted one or have a parade of them moving through your house, take action now and call a Clegg’s specialist.
Can Ants Damage My Home?
It’s not very common that ants will cause structural damage to your home, although they may eat into your favorite loaf of bread or a piece of fruit left on the counter. The outlier here is the carpenter ant, and ant that will damage wooden structures with tunneling. If you allow carpenter ants to make their home in yours for too long, you will sustain damage to your property.
