Types Of Ants That Commonly Invade Estero Homes
We have many species of ants here in Estero, including carpenter ants, fire ants, argentine ants, pharaoh ants, and odorous house ants. All these species have in common their willingness to work together for the benefit of their colony. Ants are one of the best workers on the planet. Most species build their nests underground and use mounds of dirt to crawl in and out of their home. Carpenter ants are a bit unique in how they construct their nests in trees, stumps, and other wood structures.
If you are having trouble identifying an ant nest in or around your home, consider investing in a pest inspection courtesy of Quest Termite & Pest Services.
The Problems An Ant Infestation Can Cause In Your Home
We all know that ants are incredibly annoying. They like to invade public areas, crawl over countertops, and will contaminate food without batting an eyelash. The question is, are ants just annoying? Unfortunately, a few species in our area pose a risk to your health and the structural integrity of your home.
Some local species, including the pharaoh ant, spread harmful diseases like salmonellosis and staphylococcus. They pick up sickness vectors from rotting meat and other dirty areas. On the other hand, carpenter ants do not harm people but rather structures. They chew their nests into structural wood and cause massive damage over time. They are most attracted to moisture-damaged wood, so keep things dry indoors. There are also many other forms of ant control solutions to help you deter these problematic species.
Why DIY Ant Control Is A Waste Of Time And Money
There are many reasons you should avoid DIY ant control; the biggest reason is the difficulty of ants living inside large colonies underground or in other secluded areas. Getting treatment into these locations is challenging. On top of this, many ant pest control options harm human health. If misused, these products can put you and your family at risk. Finally, many species of ants have multiple queens. If you don’t know, a queen is the central point of a colony. If a queen dies in a colony with multiple matriarchs, others will run away and make new nests nearby. A professional knows how to utilize treatments properly and what methods will prevent reinfestation and splitting colonies.
