Common Types of Ants
Many species of ants are commonly found inside living areas and workplaces. The average ant doesn't pose a safety risk, but can carry a number of diseases and contaminate food. To keep these pests out, store food in airtight containers and avoid leaving dirty dishes in the sink.
Among the types of ants you may find:
- Acrobat Ants
- Argentine Ants
Odorous House Ants
Small Black Ants
You may also encounter two species of ants that prove more destructive:
- Carpenter Ants: Larger than other ants, carpenter ants are drawn to homes with moisture problems. Once inside, they can destroy the wood in walls, floors, and support beams. When left unchecked, carpenter ants can cause thousands of dollars of damage and eventually make your home unsafe.
- Fire Ants: While fire ants won't harm structures, they are known for their painful sting. Their venom can cause sweating, itching, and nausea and may even prove fatal for individuals with allergic sensitivity. If you see fire ants in your home, you should call a professional immediately.
Recognizing Ant Infestations
No matter what kind of ant invades your property, it's important to act quickly. If you see one or two ants, more usually aren't far off, and these insects leave pheromone trails to attract fellow colony members. Once they enter through tiny cracks and gaps, a colony can expand quickly to include hundreds of thousands of ants.
Visible ants are the most common sign of an infestation. You may also find ant mounds outdoors or discarded wings. If you've noticed sawdust or wood shavings or heard a faint rustling sound inside the walls, it's a good indication that you're dealing with carpenter ants.
Get Rid of Ants Now
Unfortunately, DIY ant control solutions are rarely the best way to eliminate these pests. In fact, these options can sometimes make an infestation worse by disturbing the ants’ nest. On top of this, most DIY ant solutions only kill the insects you can see, allowing the colony to survive out of sight.
