All about Ants
When it comes to varieties of ant, you can find plenty in Wilmington. Did you know that there are more than 700 different types of ant species in America? The good news is that of those 700, there are only around 25 that are common invaders of homes. Ants will eat just about any type of food, but they especially love foods that are high in sugar. Because they are so small, ants can fit into the tiniest spaces, this allows them to invade countless homes. If your kids spill a few crumbs in your kitchen, there is a high chance that ants will find it. As social insects, ants live in massive colonies. While the size of the colony is dependent on the type of ant, some colonies can have as many as a few million. Ants don’t have ears. Instead of hearing sounds, they are able to feel vibrations through the ground with their feet. If you have ever seen lines of ants marching, they are able to do this because of pheromones. Pheromones are scented chemicals that ants use to mark the pathway to food. Ant stings can be painful. Fire ants get their name from the fact that they swarm your legs and then all bite at the same time. All those little bites add up and make your legs feel like they are on fire. Ants love stealing your food, but there is one species that can ruin your home. Carpenter ants are big. They build their nests inside of wood. They do not eat the wood, but their tough jaws are able to chew pathways and galleries through the wood inside of your home.
