Ant Control in Polk County
Ants are pesky creatures that can infest a home or business very quickly. Ants will typically come into a home or office when food is left out or to find a source of water. They live in colonies, which can house as many as 300,000 to 500,000 ants, and they are very small, so they can come in through the tiniest cracks.
Have you ever wondered why ants are always found in large groups? When a single ant comes into a home, it will leave behind a scent trail that contains its pheromones, allowing other ants in the colony to follow the trail. Unfortunately this trail is completely invisible to the human eye, so it is hard to tell where the ants are coming in or out.
There are several different types of ants, some of which bite and sting. These bites and stings can cause pain, irritation, and even allergic reactions, so make sure to get rid of ants as soon as you see them.
If you see even just a few ants in your home or business, there are likely more on their way. The best option is to give us a call at Total Pest Solutions right away.
