The Ant Issue
Ants are always on the lookout for food. Depending on the species, ant colonies can house anywhere from a few hundred insects to millions. Each of those insect mouths needs to eat, so for an ant colony food is their main priority. In order to always find food, ant colonies send out scouts. The scout ants search until they find food. Once a source of food is found, they travel back to the colony and leave a pheromone trail. Once back to the colony, the worker ants follow the pheromone trail back to the food and begin bringing everything back to the colony. While this is great for ants, it is terrible for homeowners. Once a food source is discovered, ants can be relentless. Since they are so small, ants can travel under your carpet, through the gaps under you front door, and you will wear out your vacuum before you destroy the colony. An ant queen’s entire existence is for egg production. She will be able to rapidly replace any of the worker ants that you killed.
If you are unfortunate enough to get an infestation of carpenter ants, your home can be in danger. Carpenter ants chew through wood to create massive galleries and networks of tunnels. The studs in your home are made of wood. A serious carpenter ant infestation can ruin the structural integrity of a home. The last thing you ever want is to lose your home because of an insect.
