How To Get Rid Of Ants - Have you put down food on the dining table and moments later only to find the food being attacked by a swarm of ants? If you have experienced this before, it is highly possible that your home or work place is infested with ants!
While the warning signs of an ant infestation are usually quite obvious such as with the presence of ants itself, ant trials and having ants found in food supplies, they are all easy-to-spot signs for home owners. With the presence of ants or ant nests, they are able to grow in number over time, becoming a colony. The number of ant trials along different areas in the same kitchen could be seen increasingly more as they travel to and from their food source in an organized manner.
Ants are social insects living in colonies. Foraging ants come out in the early morning and early evening when the temperature outside is not very high. Food and water is key to the colony survival. Knowing the types of ants is important as you understand the biology and behavior of certain species to carry out an effective ant control.
Common types of ants which can be found in households include Crazy Ant, Sugar Ant and Pharaoh's Ant. Correct identification of ant species is crucial before carrying out ant control treatment as different species have different diet, nesting and foraging habits. Did you know? If you have Pharaoh's Ant in your house, spraying repellent insecticide worsens the situation as the single colony split to form more colonies. Stop doing it!
