Ant control can be difficult, but there are some things you should know about how ants’ behavior can lead to big headaches for you and your home and measures we can take to control it.
Ants can enter through the tiniest of cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food substances. Just like rodents with urine marking, Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate a good food source.
They can nest about anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations. Colonies can number up to 300,000 to 500,000, and whole colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened. Compared to hornets and many other insects, ants & their colonies can live an exceptionally long time. Worker ants may live seven years, and the Queen may live as long as 15 years.
If you have already lost a battle with destroying the colony then you already understand the challenge with penetrating and destroying the nests. In addition to gaining access to the actual nest and destroying the Queen there are so many different kinds of ant infestations which require different treatments.
