If you need help with ant control in Central Florida, call us at Waters Pest Control.
Ants are some of the most difficult insects to eliminate in your home. They live in colonies, so there are often large numbers of ants coming in and out of the house in search of sources of food and water. The mistake that many homeowners make is simply getting rid of the ants they can see instead of looking for the source and eliminating the entire colony.
When you understand the behavior of these insects better, ant control becomes easier. They are very small and can fit through tiny openings, such as cracks in exterior walls and gaps between doors and windows. Ants tend to look for sweet foods and those rich in protein or grease. They will take even the smallest food crumbs back to their colonies, leaving behind a pheromone trail that allows other ants from the colony to come to the source of food. There are several species of ants, and some are more destructive and dangerous than others. But no matter what type of ants you’re dealing with, it’s never fun to try to get rid of them on your own.
