Our buildings are ideal for ants because they provide shelter, food, warmth and water. You may see them in roof voids and subfloors, in your kitchen, along the edge of the building and in and around pet bowls.
Ant Problems Can…
- Spread disease because they can scavenge for food in garbage areas, dog excrement and other unsanitary areas. These disease carrying organisms can then be tracked into our homes and onto our food.
- Bite and Sting: There are some species of Ants such as Fire Ants that can both bite and sting and cause much discomfort.
- Have unsightly ant trails and mounds. In some instances ants have caused cracks in paths due to their excavations.
