We Know About The Ants In Your Area

There's no denying the staggering success of ants as a species. Ants are impressively organized insects. They form colonies as big as 500,000 individual Ants, due to their eusociality - a high level of organization within animal sociality.

These insects have a plan that's worked since the age of dinosaurs, and they have populated the globe in remarkable numbers. There are literally hundreds of billions of ants thriving on planet earth, and some of those little critters would love to move into your home.

Why You Don’t Want Ants In Your North Carolina Home

Different species of ants cause different problems within your home and on your property. Wood-boring ants can do obvious structural damage to your home and potentially cost you thousands of dollars, so it's a no-brainer as to why you’d want to eliminate them immediately. Other ants can bite and will take up residence in your yard making it impossible to enjoy spending time outdoors.

There’s also  the general concern of uncleanliness in the home and the mess ants leave behind when they find their way into your pantry, leave behind droppings, and eventually die. If an infestation gets out of hand, you will begin to see costly household damage to your electronics, piping, and flooring. Therefore, it's best to control the problem before it gets out of hand by exercising some preventative habits.

Tips To Prevent Ants From Invading Your Home

Though an infestation may seem inevitable, there are some steps you can take inside and outside of your home to prevent ants from becoming a problem.

  • Keep your house clean. Specifically, clean up after meals and vacuum regularly.  Crumbs and food left out will attract ants to your home.

  • Use peppermint oil as a cleaning agent. Ants do not like the smell.

  • Keep your cupboards tidy and store food in sealed plastic or glass containers. Ants will find their way into open boxes and will find even the smallest crumbs throughout your pantry.

  • Clean up pet food nightly. Ants love to feed on your dog or cat’s leftovers.

  • Seal cracks and openings on the outside of your house that may serve as entry points for ants. Seal cracks and crevices with a caulking compound and repair holes in screens.
