Most commonly ants live outside in the ground, in nests or ant hills in Pennsylvania. Several hills and nests can make up one colony and the queen ant runs the place and is responsible for making new ants. In the spring as things start to warm up, ant colonies send out scouts to find food and fuel. These foraging ants leave a scent trail so they can find their way home and so other ants can follow in your Pennsylvania home.
While foraging ants may be attracted to the food inside your home, however ants don’t usually nest indoors. Ants can be attracted to a little juice or soda spill on the floor. Ants are attracted to any type of food or beverage and are smart on how to get in homes to get what they want.
Ants have become the number one pest in homes and structures in Pennsylvania and around the country. Fire ants, carpenter ants, sugar ants, rover ants, pavement ants, acrobat ants, are all common ants that try to enter the home. It is common to have problems with several different types of ants at one time.
