What Are Ants? 

Ants are social insects that live in colonies and can invade homes in search of food and shelter. They can enter through the tiniest cracks and crevices, making them difficult to control without professional help. Ants communicate through chemical signals and work together to locate and transport food back to their colony. Understanding their behavior is crucial for effective extermination.

Ant Infestations: The Signs

Lines of ants moving towards food sources. Ants leave pheromone trails to direct others to food. If you see a line of ants marching across your kitchen counter or floor, it indicates a significant infestation and an established colony nearby.

Visible Ant Trails

Ant colonies setting up nests in wall cavities. Some species, like carpenter ants, prefer to nest in wooden structures, including the walls of your home. You might notice sawdust or frass near these areas, which are signs of nesting activity.

Nests In Walls

Evidence of nesting activity in wooden structures. This is particularly common with carpenter ants, which chew through wood to create their nests. Sawdust trails indicate they are actively excavating and expanding their colony within your home's structure.

Damaged Food

Opened and damaged food packaging. Ants are attracted to food sources, especially sugary and greasy substances. Finding ants in your pantry or cupboards, along with damaged food packaging, suggests they have identified and invaded these food sources.

Presence of winged ants indicating a mature colony. Winged ants, or swarmers, are reproductive ants that leave the nest to establish new colonies. Seeing them indoors is a sign that there is a mature ant colony within or near your home, and they are preparing to expand.

How To Prevent Ant Infestations

Preventing ant infestations involves maintaining cleanliness, sealing entry points, and proper food storage. Ensure your kitchen and dining areas are free of crumbs and spills, regularly clean surfaces and appliances, and store food in airtight containers. Inspect and seal cracks and gaps in your home, keep trash cans sealed and dispose of garbage regularly, and fix any leaks or damp areas to control moisture.
