How Do Ants Get Inside Your Home
Ants are also very organized social insects. A scout ant, foraging for food, can get into your home. One small ant can usually go unnoticed. This one ant is searching for food and once the foraging ant finds a food source for the colony the rest of the ants follow a chemical trail to collect it, now you will notice them as there are numerous ants doing what ants do best, finding and storing food.
Types of Ants We Exterminate
People may not be aware of this, but there are countless species of ants which could plague their home. In the state of Virginia, we have several kinds in particular that are very persistent as they attempt to invade someone’s house or property. Depending on the type of ant, it might be more effective to use one strategy over another.
You may have one or more of these ant species plaguing your property and home:
- Carpenter ants – These destructive ants are akin to termites in the fact that they carve out deep, long tunnels throughout the wood of your home, damaging the foundations to the core.
- Allegheny mound ants – These extremely aggressive ants often build mounds around a home or business property located near open fields or woods. If these mounds are disturbed, the ants have been known to bite and/or spray formic acid.
Effective Protection & Security through Treatment Plans
It can be difficult to control ant infestations because the primary source of the population, the queen, is buried far below ground, much deeper than your average over-the-counter ant poison can reach. If the worker ants sense danger, they will simply move the queen and start making another colony. Over the counter ant pesticides can work well if used properly. But multiple treatments, and knowledge of exactly what type of ant, is the most effective method as some ants common to the Roanoke valley may have more than one queen. Our knowledgeable technicians are experienced in eradicating entire colonies by using baits that are taken back to the queen, thus removing both the head producer and the entire nest as well.
