Ants are social insects. Their highly organized colonies or nests which sometimes consist of millions of individuals are divided into infertile female workers and fertile males (drones) and females (queens). Colonies can occupy and use a wide area of land to support them.
Ant colonies are sometimes described as superorganisms because the colony appears to operate as a single entity.
Odorous House Ants, Acrobat Ants, Pavement Ants, Pharaoh Ants, Little Black Ants, “Sugar Ants”, “Picnic Ants”, Argentine Ants, Citronella Ants, “Wood Ants” etc (quotations used to indicate names that are not proper but commonly used by people to refer to certain types of ant).
What we do to get rid of them:
All of the above ants comprise a vast array of non-wood-destroying pest ants that have a great deal of variety in their behaviors and reasons for infesting structures. Some make trails, some eat sweets, and some seem to randomly show up all over the place. They also have some very significant differences in treatment that can mean the difference between success, failure and even making the problem worse! Let us send a qualified inspector out to identify your ant and devise a treatment plan suited to the ant and your needs.
