Get rid of ant infestation

Ants are insects which are very active during the summer. They can be seen everywhere form the driveway to the bedroom during the summer. Ants are generally not a harmful insect but too much of them invading in the living space can be a real nuisance. Sometimes they may start to show up too much too often and that’s when you realize that they should be got rid of.

There are different types of ants and different types of ant require different treatment. Each species of ant differ from each other in their nature. Some of the ants are actually dangerous for human and their sting can really hurt people. Ants are extremely hard to get rid of so it is better to prevent them then to search for the cure.

There are hundreds of species of ants in the world. Ants are some of the most advanced insects in the world. Some of the most common types of ants found around our surroundings are as follows:

Pavement ants

These are the most common type of ants found in the city area. They can be seen almost everywhere outside. Sometimes they may find way inside your home through various means. They may build their nests in the cracks or corners of the walls. They may be dark brown or black in color and are medium sized type ants. They have six legs just like any other ants and eat almost anything on their way. They eat bread crumbs, meat, sugar, nuts etc. which are regular foods to human. They can spread diseases by contaminating the food and hence they are considered to be a pest.

Field ants

They are larger in size in comparison to the pavement ants. They are often confused with the carpenter ants because they both are similar in size. They have wide range of color which are yellow, brown, black etc. They generally make their nest outside in the ground. They generally invade homes in search sweet foods such as honey, sugar, chocolates etc. Their bites can be very painful but do not have any known long term effect on human body.

Odorous house ants

These ants are very small in size and are found in brown and black color. They generally live under firewood or exposed ground. If they happen to find moist and dark space inside the home then they may nest inside the house too. They give off unpleasant odor when crushed so other ways should be used to get rid of the ants rather than killing.

Some of the few easy tricks to avoid ant infestation are as follows:

  • Leaving food exposed outside should be avoided. It is better to put the food in air tight condition inside a refrigerator.
  • The dishes in the sink should not be left unwashed for a long time. The food remains in the dish can attract ants inside home.
  • The counter must be cleaned regularly after ever meal.
  • The house floor should be vacuumed on regular basis.
  • If any food is spilled on the ground then it should be cleaned as soon as possible.
  • Water damaged wood should be quickly removed from inside the house.
  • The trash should not be kept in the house for a long time.

Carpenter ant problem

Ants can really be a nuisance at homes and at working places. Their nature of intruding human property in large numbers of group causes the real problem. But when people are talking about ant they generally focus on their painful bite and do not associate them with the damage of property. People always think about termite when talking about damage to the woods but there is certain type of ants which just like termites attack wooden materials for their survival and they are known as carpenter ants.

Background

Carpenter ants are comparatively larger ants than their counterparts and as their name suggest they like chewing through woods. They have a large black colored body which is easily recognizable. The basic difference between a termite and the carpenter ant is that the termites attack wood for food but carpenter ants do not eat food. In fact carpenter ants attack woods to make their nesting sites only. Termites leave moist soil where they burrow but carpenter ants leave saw dust behind where they burrow.

Carpenter ants do not create any health hazards directly but because of their nature to chew through woods to build their nesting sites are harmful to the property. These ants can be devastating to homes, apartments and businesses because of their excavating habits. These ants generally enter the homes through firewood, cracks in the wall, holes in the exterior wall, windows etc. They infest the home in search of food and water from the debris, kitchen sinks and bathrooms.

How easy is it to tackle?

Fighting against the infestation of carpenter ants is not an easy task. They can spread to create new nests at a very high pace. Even if one nest is left they can easily multiply in numbers and create new colonies. Taking some steps by yourself to control the ants may be helpful to a certain extend but not as effective as a professional help.

  • People should also know what a carpenter ant looks like. It is better to act as soon as possible when they are seen in your property. The infestation may become harder to get rid of with the time passing.

With these few prevention methods people can protect their homes from carpenter ants to a certain extent but it is always a good idea to take professional help to get rid of the ant infestation.
