The Problem With Ants – Why You Need an Ant Exterminator?
You may not think much of two or three ants in your home or business. Given time, those few ants will evolve into a much larger infestation or several satellite colonies. When scout ants forage for food, water and shelter, they leave a pheromone trail behind as a way to signal to other colony members once they’ve found something good. The next thing you know, ants have overrun your kitchen and bathroom spaces.
Some ants, such as the thief species, feed on dead rodents and other animal carcasses like a dead raccoon. When these ants enter your home, they may contaminate your surfaces and food with various diseases. To avoid ant infestations, you should always keep your food in sealed containers and clean up after you’ve spilled food or a beverage. Sealing large and small cracks in and around your home or business can also prevent ants from coming inside.
Ants belong outdoors, not in your home or business. They raid pantries, contaminate food and build nests in baseboards, crawlspaces and various cracks and crevices.
