Common Ant Behaviors
While each type of ant is unique, there are certain behaviors that are common among all types of ants. Recognizing these behaviors can help you identify an ant problem and discourage ants from making themselves at home.
It is useful to know ant behaviors, such as:
Points of entry: Ants enter buildings through tiny openings in search of food, water, and shelter. The search for food is the reason they are frequently found in kitchens, pantries, and storerooms.
Trails: Ants leave a distinct trail to good food and water sources that can only be seen by other ants.
Ant homes: They are resourceful at building living quarters inside walls, under houses, and in yards.
Ant colonies: A colony can have hundreds of thousands of ants. They can pick up and move quickly when they sense danger, yet it is important to get rid of the colony to eliminating your ant problem.
Lifespan: Ants can live up to 7 years and queens can live up to 15 years, so they can be around a long time.
If you have been trying to deal with an ant infestation using store-bought products, you have probably already realized it is a never-ending process. These products only eliminate the ants that you can see. Unless you get rid of the nest, you will not solve the problem. You can count on our experts to provide a lasting solution.
3 Signs You Have An Ant Problem
Ants have been known to be one of the industrious insects in the natural world, which makes them a bit of a nightmare to have in your home. If you have an ant hill or ant colony that lives near your home, even the smallest crumb can attract a myriad of ants. We have provided you with 3 signs to keep an eye out to see if you have an ant problem.
- Food is Overrun By Ants One of the most simple ways to tell is if you leave out any food. If ants are present, they will quickly find the source of the food and take it away, this goes for dog food as well. Make sure to cover any food that is left out. Contact our Aburndale & Lakeland ant control technicians for the help you need.
- Listen to the Walls Specifically with carpenter ants, these ants are more active at night. If you listen to your walls, you should be able to hear rustling noises of them building nests. If you knock on your wall, where you knew wood would be, and it sounds hollow, you may have carpenter ants or termites.
- Look for Wood Shavings When carpenter ants burrow into wood, you'll often notice that they leave behind a trail of wood shavings or even sawdust. As you are cleaning your floors, make sure you pay attention to what you are sweeping up. If you find sawdust or wood shavings it may be time to call one of our expert Aburndale & Lakeland ant control technicians.
