Ants can be found across the country. Unfortunately, they’re particularly bad in Akron, Ohio. These social insects belong to the Formicidae family. They live in underground colonies with thousands of other ants. Although there are more than 12,000 identified species, it is estimated that there could be 14,000 ant species on the planet. These pests are easy to identify because they have elbowed antennas and pinched waists. Many people had ant farms when they were younger. One thing to note is that ants are incredibly successful because they work together to achieve many goals. They’re always working to achieve a common goal and to ensure that the colony thrives.
Unfortunately, this makes them difficult to eliminate. Our technicians can help you remedy the problem so call us.
Why Are Ants In Your Home?
Ants generally build underground nests outside. An underground ant colony can house as many as tens of thousands of ants. However, it will likely start with a few dozen. Typically, ants prefer being outside. However, there is always a chance that they’re going to enter your home. When they enter residential structures, they’re normally searching for food. They can travel hundreds of feet from their nests to reach your home. These pests are determined so they’re going to find ways to enter your home. If you have small gaps around your window frames, door frames, or utility lines, ants will enter through those gaps.
Keep them out by properly sealing these gaps.
