Salem and Portland Ant Treatment


How To Identify An Ant Infestation

If you have a seen a large number of live ants making a trail across your floor, chances are they aren’t going to leave on their own. A stray ant in a place you don’t typically see ants may be a scout sent from a larger colony to look for a new food source. Finding ants in your left out food or your pet’s bowls are signs of an ant problem. Once they find food, ants will not leave easily. Some species of ants, such as carpenter ants, will leave wood shavings or sawdust as they dig and chew into your trim and walls. You may even hear soft rustling noises in the walls at night if a colony is actively being built.

Why You Might Have Ants

Ants like to live near their food source. Kitchens and bathrooms are the rooms where ant will most commonly take up lodging in your home. Crumbs left on counters or floors and residue from spills are an invitation for ants, as are opened, unsealed containers of sugar, sweets and honey . Once they have discovered that food is easily accessible, ants are very reluctant to leave. Bathrooms often provide a source of moisture where certain types of ants are happy to build nests near. While kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular places for ants to infest, they are also often found in bedrooms, living rooms, basements, and within the walls themselves.

Reasons To Treat Your Ant Problem Immediately

When ants have come to live in your house with you, they do not want to leave. Access to food and moisture are highly attractive to ants looking for a home of their own. While you can squash all the ants you see, there are likely many more that are living in a nest hidden from view. In that nest, the queen ant (the one who lays all the ant eggs) will be quickly replenishing the ants you have killed out in the open. The longer you leave you ant problem untreated, the bigger the problem will get.
