Ants: The Ultimate Party Host

Have ants made a party out of your home?

According to PestWorld, there are almost 700 species of ants in the United States. They’re highly social animals, meaning if you see one traipsing through your home, he’s probably about to call his whole colony for a house party. Like with so many other pests, it’s best to get ahead of the issue then wait until it’s too late.

If you think you might have an ant infestation, the first step is to call for an inspection. Call Now: (321) 499-9114 or fill out our contact form.

The first step to understanding your ant problem is figuring out what kind of ant has invaded your home. Our pest control experts are able to do this for you on the first visit. In Florida, we have plenty of varieties. Some of the most common is the Ghost Ant, the Crazy Ant, the Imported Fire Ant, the Carpenter Ant, and the Pharaoh Ant.

How Can I Prevent Ant Infestations?

UCIPM (University of California Integrated Pest Management) suggests taking the following precautions to stop ants from infesting your home:

  1. Seal cracks and crevices inside and out
  2. Be sure to keep food in sealed containers, especially sugary foods like honey and syrups.
  3. Proactively look for ant nesting sites. Potted plants are common homes for ants and should be removed and sanitized immediately if you suspect a nest is inside.
