Getting Entry: Ants can enter through even the tiniest cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food substances in the kitchen pantry or storeroom spots.
Detect trails: Ants construct an invisible chemical sort of trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food source.
Nest locations: They can make the move about anywhere in and around your house in lawns, walls, firewood, stumps, even under a structure.
Colony size: Colonies can grow up to 300,000 to 500,000, and full colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened.
Colony Lifetime: A colony can live a relatively long lifetime. Worker ants may live seven years, and the queen may live as long as 15 years.
Do it All On Your Own Downside: Most Do-It-Yourself insect pest control approaches kill only the ants you see. Some truly effective treatments can penetrate and destroy colony size to help prevent these pests from returning. Also, home remedies don’t account for the fact that different kinds of ant infestations require different treatments.
