Ants are very small, and many of them look the same, especially at a distance. Why does it matter to identify individual species when they are so similar? After all, aren’t they all just nuisances to be exterminated? The problem is that different types of ants require distinct methods of eradication. For example, certain kinds of species are best removed with residual sprays. Other types of ants, such as Pharaoh ants, are not susceptible to surface sprays and require toxic baits instead.
Because it is so hard to remove ants completely without destroying the nests, professionals must identify the ants to then find their location. This is not a simple task on account of the variety of habitats. Many ant colonies have their nests buried in the ground, but other types of ants do not. Carpenter ant colonies establish their nests in hardwood trees outside or within indoor wooden furniture and cabinets.
Since the type of ant has a major effect on elimination technique, it is important to keep track of the ants you see on your property. Our technicians will inspect the traces left by the ants, as well as their appearance, so that we can properly identify and fully eradicate them.
Some of the most common types of ants include:
- Pavement ants
- Carpenter ants
- Odorous house ants
- Argentine ants
- Thief ants
- Pharaoh ants
- Velvety tree ants
Many people know that ants are drawn to crumbs and spills, or food that has not been properly stored. But you may wonder why you have an ant problem even if there is no food in sight. The answer is that ants are often even more attracted by a source of water. This phenomenon results in homeowners finding ants around the bathtub, the sink, and the shower. Even the toilet and the washing machine are not safe. When there is no observable food source, homeowners should identify where water may be leaking and drawing ants.
Because no one can get rid of all the water in their home, the technique of exclusion is crucial. Professional exterminators can help identify the locations where ants are getting in and seal them off. Let Suburban Pest Control prevent these tenacious creatures from overrunning your building.
