Ants enter through crevices, cracks, and openings found on your walls, floors, doors, and windows. For that reason, it is very important to always keep food in tightly closed containers and seal all cracks and openings that could serve as entry-ways for ants.
Wooden fixtures saturated by water from leaks in the house are a great target for them as well. Ants live on the ground or on the soil surface as well as rotten wood. They live in colonies; where you spot a small mound of dirt on the ground. One main characteristic of ants is their ability to leave pheromone trails to be followed by other ants.
In the spring ants will develop wings and fly to new locations to invade homes to forage for food or to establish a new nest. Ant infestations can be difficult to eradicate if not treated properly.
We will also leave you with a comprehensive report and recommendations on housekeeping, proofing, and exclusion to help eradicate and control ants.
