Ants are some of the most common household pests, and they can be quite difficult to get rid of once they have infested your home. However, identifying ant infestations early on is the key to keeping your home free of these pesky insects.
There are many types of ants, but only a few of them commonly invade homes. These ants include (but are not limited to):
The first step in getting rid of an ant infestation is to identify that you have one. Signs of an ant infestation include:
Much like what you saw at the top of this webpage, ants often walk in trails towards food that they can bring back to their colony. This happens because the ants are laying down invisible trails of pheromones so other ants can follow them.
Ant nests can be a bit trickier to spot depending on the species. Carpenter ants for example will next in moldy or rotten pieces of wood which may be inside your walls. Fire ants on the other hand will create nests below ground, leaving the stereotypical soil mounds in grass or dirt that you usually see.
Even just the occasional ant may be signs of a nearby infestation. If you see a few forager ants gravitating towards your trash can it could be signs that a colony is operating in or around your house.
Aruza proudly provides ant pest control to Charlotte NC, Greensboro NC, Greenville SC, Charleston SC, Greenville SC, Raleigh NC, and Orlando FL.
The frequency of ant inspections depends on the risk of ant infestation in your area. If you live in an area that is prone to ant infestations, you may want to have an ant inspection every 6 months to 1 year. However, if you live in an area that is not prone to ant infestations, you may only need to have an ant inspection every 2-3 years.
The time it takes for ant extermination to work depends on the type of treatment used and the severity of the infestation. In general, it takes 2-4 weeks for ant extermination to work completely.
The cost of ant extermination varies depending on the size of the infestation, the type of treatment used, and the location of the infestation. In general, ant extermination costs between $50 and $500.
The safety of ant treatments for plants, pets, and kids depends on the type of treatment used. Some treatments, such as baits and traps, are relatively safe for these groups. However, other treatments, such as sprays and dusts, can be more harmful and we recommend you rely on a professional for their application. It is important to read the label of any ant treatment carefully before using it to ensure that it is safe for your plants, pets, and kids.
