STOP ANTS IN THEIR TRACKS
If you start noticing a trail of ants walking across your counter, you may have an ant control problem. You may have a more serious ant problem than just those you can see. Ants have a fascinating work ethic in that they are able to communicate and assign tasks in an effort to grow and expand their colony. While this may be great for the ants, it is not so much for you and your home. Taking preventative measures and talking to an experienced ant exterminator is critical to controlling and eliminating these pests from your home, as once their colony has been established, it is more difficult to eradicate them from your property. In addition, the more common areas you will see ants is in and around your foods, which can cause health issues as direct result of their waste contaminating the food as ants are drawn into the homes looking for food, especially anything that is sweet and sticky. Furthermore, some ants bite, which makes them a threat to your family and pets. We recommend taking all the necessary measures to protect yourself from stinging insects at all costs.
Regardless of the ant species, all colonies tend to have at least one queen ant (there are some that have multiple queens) whose primary role is to grow the colony by laying eggs by the thousands. Each colony of ants can hold up to half a million ants, with the worker ants living up to seven years, while a queen can live up to 15 years! Because ant populations can expand so quickly, it could be necessary for an ant removal service.
