About Ants

Ants are small insects that vary in size, shape and function, depending on the species and type. Black, reddish-brown, orange or other colors, they all have six legs and bulbous abdomens with a constricted waist. Ants also tend to travel in large working groups, so when one shows up, it’s almost guaranteed there are more on the way.

While a few ants may seem harmless, the damage they can cause in large numbers can be severe. Not to mention, nobody wants an infestation of any pest in their home. Certain ant varieties like carpenter ants can cause structural damage to your home, while nuisance ants can ruin food sources.

How to Detect Ants

Ants aren’t very discreet — just look for a line of them. They leave an invisible chemical trail of pheromones for their whole crew to follow. Ants will make their way inside for water and food, invading kitchens, bathrooms, and closets. Outside, they gather in flower beds and bushes, as well as mounds made from dirt.

How to Prevent Ants

Stopping ants starts with keeping your home clean. Be sure to wash dirty dishes and pet food bowls, take out the trash regularly, and quickly wipe up any sugary food spills. Outside, keep wood piles and bushes away from your home to eliminate potential easy entry points.
