Do you have a sudden ant swarm at your home or business in Winter Haven? We can help.
An ant swarm is a common problem for the homeowners and business owners of Winter Haven, Florida. The story usually starts in the spring because an ant swarm is part of the reproductive cycle of an ant colony. A large group of ants breaks off from an old colony together and goes off to start a new colony. If the old colony is close to your home or business, the ant swarm can occasionally invade the interior of your structure, though this is fairly uncommon. Ant swarms are generally found outdoors, but can still cause problems for children, pets and others who are trying to use the outdoor space.
Ant colonies are more than just a bunch of ants living together. They work together for the common good. They have a complex social hierarchy and social structure. This includes worker ants who search for food and water, as well as kings and queens who are responsible for reproduction, and more. There are many types of ants, and specific behavior patterns vary from species to species.
The good news is that ant swarms are usually temporary problems. Once the new colony gets settled and established, you will not see the large groups of ants any more. You may not be able to wait, though. If the swarm is close to your property, you may not want the colony to become established in this area. The only solution may be extermination.
