Ants are social insects that live in colonies. Treatment plans should include killing the entire colony. Just spraying an ant with a typical ant spray, particularly a repellent spray, will only kill a few at best.

Ants may enter your house foraging for food or seek shelter. They are in search of either sweet-based food or protein/grease based foods. Once they find a food source, ants will leave a pheromone trail for other ants to follow.

Ants can create their nests anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, stumps and even under foundations. Colonies can number up to 300,000 to 500,000, and whole colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened. A colony can live a relatively long lifetime. Worker ants may live seven years, and the queen may live as long as 15 years.

While carpenter ants aren’t as damaging to wood as termites, carpenter ants still remove the wood inside of your home. They do this to provide a smooth hollow shelter for themselves. Because of this, you will find sawdust and other small chunks of wood around lumber in your home when you have carpenter ants.

The majority of problems that ants will cause is the harm of food in your pantry or cupboards.

To eliminate ants, it is important to eradicate the nest, or the root of the problem. Once this is done it is crucial to seal off any entries into the home, no matter how small.
