Finding ants in your kitchen, along the baseboards, and in the bathroom?
If you are finding even one ant in your bathroom, you can expect to find more. When ants move throughout your home, they leave tracks that are invisible to humans but ring loud and clear to their ant species.
Did you know that there are over 15 different ant species in Florida? Each of these species can be considered a household nuisance, but some ant species create more serious problems than others. Fire and red ants can deliver a painful sting to humans – and especially to young children playing outside in the yard. Carpenter ants are often found in decaying wood. These ants can wreak havoc in wood structures and even damage the structure of your home. It’s important to treat these ant colonies quickly before they compromise the integrity of wood structures.
Ants May Start Outside…
Most ant colonies start outside, but are driven indoors by their attraction to sugar, water, proteins, oils, and fragrances. It’s not uncommon to find several ant species in bathrooms, the nursery, or wherever scented products are used. Odorous ants and sugar ants are typically found in the kitchen and bathrooms, searching for water or food. Additionally, some species of ants invade air conditioning units.
Summertime draws even more ants, and home infestations can be traced to growing colonies ranging from dozens to millions of ants, originating outside your home.
As you can probably imagine, homes, offices, hospitals, and other commercial buildings are not limited to only one species of ants. You could have multiple ant species enjoying a fiesta in the underlying structure and inside your home. Ants don’t just invade homes; they infest businesses and wreak havoc in restaurants, offices and hotels.
While sweeping, mopping, and cleaning will help reduce the number of ants in your home, once they’ve made their way into your home, there are plenty more that will continue coming back. Keeping your bushes trimmed and your doors and windows caulked helps, as does eliminating standing water near your home. However, when you feel that the ants have stayed past curfew, it’s time to contact a reputable pest control service to inspect and remove the ants.
