Ants in Your Plants?!
...or Home or Business?
On average, there are 1,428,571 ants for each human in the world, and an astounding 12,000 species of ants. As you can see, ants are everywhere and that is why it is always best to control them before they become an issue in your home or business.
Sometimes an ant infestation is simply due to your surrounding environment. However, most ant issues become apparent quicker when food residues are easily available. Ants will send foragers to look for food and will enter a home or business in search of just that. Remember, ants can enter a structure through the tiniest of spaces. If they find what they need to thrive, more ants will come, and they can establish colonies inside and around homes and businesses.
Carpenter ants and fire ants are amongst the most well-known ants. Carpenter ants are a wood destroying organism and can cause expensive damage to structures. If left untreated, it can result in serious consequences including costly repairs. While fire ants will not destroy your home like carpenter ants, they can cause harm to people and pets. Fire ants are stinging insects. Many people have experienced the painful fire ant sting. Fire ants also pose a safety issue especially for those allergic and young children. Lesser famous ants are all very common and not only are ants unsightly, ants can contaminate food. Many people battle the microscopic ants they see trailing on kitchen counters or in restrooms, as well as normal sized ants that can be seen almost anywhere in a home or building. Sometimes, ants can infest a structure and not even be noticed until their numbers grow exponentially or there is a change to their environment.
