Lets Talk About Ants

The Different Types Of Ants

There are many different types of ants, but the most common types you will typically encounter are:

What Do Ants Look Like?

Ants are easily recognizable due to their three distinct body parts (head, thorax, and abdomen). They have six legs attached to their thorax and two antennae on their head. They come in many colors and sizes but are generally between 2-15mm long.

Can Ants Smell?

Yes! Not only can ants smell, but they can also use that sense of smell to communicate, search out food, and identify other members of their colony. They will detect smells with the antennae and use pheromones to communicate.

Signs Of An Ant Infestation

An ant infestation is generally easy to identify. The most common signs of an ant infestation include – regular ant spottings in your kitchen, ant trails in and around your house, damage to wooden structures, and small piles of discarded debris. It is vital to act on signs of an infestation and contact your pest control company to prevent the infestation from worsening.

Ant Prevention Tips

Keep Your Home Clean

Food and water will attract ants, so clean up any spills or food. A great way to prevent ants from entering your home is to sweep and mop your floors regularly, wipe down countertops, and keep your kitchen clean.

Properly Store Food

Easy access to food is one of the biggest things attracting ants. Ensure no food is left on countertops and containers are properly closed. The best way to help prevent ants, is to keep your food in airtight containers or in the refrigerator.

Seal Up Entry Points

Ants can enter your home through the tiniest cracks and crevices. A good practice is to go around your home once or twice a year and seal up any entry points, such as replacing the caulk around windows and doors.

Trim The Trees & Bushes Near Your Home

Ants are known to use tree branches and bushes as a bridge to enter into your home. Ensuring shrubs, bushes, and trees around your home are trimmed is a good way to prevent ants from infiltrating your home.

Make Sure Your Trash Is Sealed

Ants love garbage, so make sure all of your trashcans have tight-fitting lids, and you don’t skip trash day.
