Ants can cause a lot of problems in your home. Ants are always exploring their environment, looking for food, water, and shelter. If they live in your area, it is only a matter of time before they will come to explore your home. Ants are opportunistic, and if they find certain conditions to their liking they will promptly move in with you. Ants tend to locate colonies behind walls and between floors, and once established they can be difficult to control. You can find yourself struggling with an ant problem that seemingly won’t go away.

  • Fire: these ants can deliver painful, venomous stings.
  • Ghost: can create multiple colonies using multiple queens in your home.

How Dangerous Are Typical House Ants?

Ants can bring problems with them into your home. Some ants possess painful, venomous stings, and can readily sting you or other family members. Other ants tend to explore everything in their environment. They can get exposed to toxic substances or disease-causing pathogens while exploring and can import these things into your house when they come inside later. Carpenter ants are capable of causing extensive damage to your home over time. The longer they are there the more damage they can cause. Ants tend to have an affinity for electronics and can cause electrical shorts. Finally, ants are notorious for getting into stored food, especially when they aren’t sealed well. Effective ant control is essential if you want to avoid the problems caused by ants.

Why And How Ants Find Their Way Into Our Homes

Ants are very small and can exploit almost any opening in your home. Although ants live together in colonies they tend to explore individually. This allows them to be very efficient with their time and resources. If an ant comes to explore your home and likes what it sees, it will go back to notify the colony. It leaves a chemical trail as it returns that the other ants can later follow back to your house. What begins as one ant exploring your home can turn into a thriving ant colony, and quickly. 

If you are struggling with ants, it’s easy to call EcoTech Pest Control Services for help. We know how to get rid of ants in the kitchen and anywhere else in your home.
