Ants can be found throughout the United States. They live in our city and they can create problems for locals. We understand ants better than anyone so we can get rid of them for you swiftly. Ants are social pests that are members of the Formicidae family. They live in large colonies with most of them being underground. Today, there are more than 12,000 known ant species, but some researchers believe there could be 14,000 or more. They’re easy to identify because they have unique appearances. For instance, they have elbowed antennas and a pinched waist. They are everywhere so you’ve likely spotted a few ants during your days.
Unfortunately, ants are highly successful no matter what they’re doing. Whether they’re searching for food, foraging for food, or build tunnels, they’ll work as a team. They’re going to be a difficult puzzle to solve unless you’re working with a qualified exterminator like us.
Reasons You Have Ants At Home
Ants tend to enter residences in our area because they’re foraging for food. However, most ant colonies are built outside underground. The number of ants living in a colony can vary significantly. During the early days of the infestation, it’ll have a few hundred ants. Before you know it, the colony will expand to thousands of ants. These pests breed quickly so the infestation is only going to get larger. These pests prefer being outside but they can enter residences to search for food. When they decide to enter a residence, they’ll have many ways to enter the dwelling. For instance, they can enter through gaps around window frames and door frames. Alternatively, they’ll slip through gaps around plumbing pipes and utility lines.
