There are over twelve thousand species of ants worldwide and one thousand different species of ants in the United States alone. With such a variety, it’s surprising that only a few species are known for being home invaders. A “few” gains some weight when you consider these social pests travel in large numbers.

Usual Hangouts

Ants are commonly found around bathrooms, kitchens, sinks, cupboards and anywhere else within proximity of food and water. Ants are social pests meaning they always travel in large numbers. A reoccurring sign of a few ants could be an indicator of a nearby colony with numbers that vary from 400-40,000 depending on the species.

Risks Caused by Ants

With their effortless ability to scale walls, ants can make their way into a poorly closed bag of chips in the cabinet just as easily climbing into your pet’s food dish on the floor. Left untreated, an ant infestation can lead to food contamination and structural damage. Ants in your home or business can also be a sign of water damage.

Most Common Invaders

The most common ant species we see are pavement ants, carpenter ants, and odorous house ants. The other ants in our pest library are less common but still can occur in our area. Our Healthy Home Maintenance Program protects against all ant species invasions.
