Ants are everywhere meaning you’ve seen them at some point. If you’re lucky, these pests are nowhere near your home. Once they’ve decided to enter your residence, you’re going to experience a variety of problems. These social insects are members of the Formicidae family. Since they’re social pests, they’re going to work together consistently. Whether they’re searching for food, building new tunnels, or caring for the queen, the ants are going to work as a team.
Ants are unique in appearance since they have elbowed antennas. Their bodies are pinched in the middle. Some estimates claim that there are 14,000 total species of ants, but over 12,000 species have been classified. While these pests aren’t dangerous, they can create issues for certain consumers. Working with a professional exterminator is highly recommended.
Reasons You Have Ants
Ants want to build colonies outside of residences. Tens of thousands of ants can live in underground nests. Once they’ve found a suitable location, they will begin working diligently to build new tunnels and care for the queen. As this happens, the ants will leave their nests to forage for food. Depending on the location of the nest, they may decide to enter your home. Ants are small enough to slip through the smallest holes and gaps around your home.
They can enter through gaps around utility lines, eaves, door frames, plumbing pipes, and more. Blocking these gaps can help, but ants may still find a way to enter your home.
Residents should be careful about allowing pests to enter their residences. Some pests are dangerous. While others aren’t, they can still create a nuisance in the home. Keeping ants out is highly recommended. They can enter your residence and infest your food. While they’re not going to spread illnesses, you may decide to throw the food out because the thought is hideous.
