Ant Identification & Prevention

What are ants?

Ants are problematic yet common home invaders that come in a variety of shapes and sizes due to impressive species diversity. Though ants display different behaviors and preferences when it comes to nesting habits and favorite foods, all have segmented bodies, six legs, and powerful mandibles. They are social creatures that live together in large colonies with distinct social divisions. Ant colonies typically contain worker ants, soldiers, and reproductive ants, many of which have wings.

Many different species of ants may present threats to human structures, but the types of ants that you should keep an eye out for in our area include pharaoh, Argentine, pavement, and fire ants.

Our service professionals at ProForce Pest Control will provide you with additional help identifying which ant species is invading your property.

Are ants dangerous?

Even though ants are small, an ant infestation brings big problems to your property. All ants have the ability to bite or sting; this can trigger allergic reactions even in those without preexisting allergies, depending on the number of bites received.

The Argentine and pavement ant species are considered more of a nuisance pest. They are likely to invade your property or food storage area but pose little real threat to humans. However, pharaoh ants and fire ants are more serious pests, and you should treat them with caution. Pharaoh ants spread illnesses like salmonella and streptococcus as they scavenge through your house, walking across counters and over food. Fire ants are more aggressive and deliver painful stings that may trigger allergic reactions.

Professional ant control is essential to remove these dangerous pests from your property.

Why do I have an ant problem?

Ants will invade properties that offer them plenty of access to food, water, and shelter. If you are noticing an ant problem on your property, these pests are likely attracted to unguarded trash, improperly stored food and drink, compost piles, and cracks or gaps that allow them easy access to interior areas. Some species, such as the Argentine ant, are drawn into interior spaces looking for food and, more importantly, moisture.

Where will I find ants?

Ants commonly nest outside underneath the soil, in piles of debris, near woodpiles, or inside tree stumps and fallen trees. If they do find their way indoors, ants will likely nest under flooring, inside insulation or the spaces between walls, behind appliances, and near warm areas like electrical and utility outlets.

  • Ensure trash cans have tight-fitting lids that keep ant invaders out.
