Ants are a major pain, right?
In US homes, ants are the most common and worrisome pests for consumers, according to a survey performed by the National Pest Management Association.
Ants are most prevalent during the warm summer months, feeding on any food and crumbs they can access inside and outside of your home. These pests can contaminate food and damage the structure of your home if left untreated. Some types of ants may even bite if feeling threatened in your home. Among the most common found in local homes are carpenter, pavement, odorous and pharaoh ants, all of which have distinct characteristics that can make them a threat in your home. That’s why ant protection is so important.
HTP Pest can help you get rid of and prevent ant infestations in your home.
Ants tend to enter homes searching for foods such as sweets or proteins, and once a colony is established, it may be very difficult to gain control of the infestation. They can enter through the smallest of cracks or gaps, and can nest nearly anywhere in the home, commonly appearing in walls, stumps or under the structural foundation.
