Fire Ant FAQs
Perhaps more than anything else, a messy home is the most common cause of an ant infestation. Food and sticky spots on counter tops, dirty floors, and an uncovered trash can can all lead to an ant invasion. A few initial ants will scout out the premises, note the presence of available food sources, and then return to the colony with word. Before you know it, you could have a kitchen full of ants.
In some cases, an ant invasion is just a nuisance. No one likes opening their cabinet to find a line of ants marching to and from a box of cereal or bag of sugar. Occasionally, though, ants can pose a more serious threat. Certain species are known to carry bacteria on their bodies, and these bacteria can potentially contaminate the food that the ants come into contact with.
Carpenter ants can cause structural damage to your home, much in the same way that termites would. Meanwhile, the bite of a fire ant can result in an intensely painful reaction, including a potentially life threatening allergic reaction in sensitive individuals.
Treating fire ants in and around your property can be challenging. Even if you manage to eliminate fire ants in your yard or near your home, it’s possible for them to reinvade from a neighboring yard or adjoining property. Additionally, attempting to treat a fire ant problem on your own is potentially quite dangerous. Fire ant bites are serious and can lead to significant allergic reactions in some individuals.
