Why Is Ant Control So Important?
In order to truly understand why ant control is so important, you first have to understand why ant infestations can become such overwhelming nuisances and safety hazards…and in order to fully grasp the gravity of this reality, it is essential to understand how the social structure of the ant population functions. And since an exterminator knows how ants function by interacting with them regularly, they also begin to think like the ants do—in order to become an effective exterminator of them! Ants are very social creatures and they live in very large colonies. Each colony consists of many workers, male ants, and at least one egg-laying female ant known as the Queen.
Because ants never break from this type of social structure, they are always surrounded by countless numbers of compatriots. Therefore, if you happen to see even one in your home of business, there are unfortunately many, many more not far away at all. The ants you see at first are the workers. The workers leave a trail of scent-based pheromones behind so that they and their fellow ants can find their ways back and forth from their colony to your bathroom, kitchen, boardroom, or wherever else it is they have invaded.
Phoenix Ant Control Species and Tactics
Ants can sneak into residential and commercial spaces through the tiniest cracks in foundations, walls and doors. Now, you might not see these cracks and crevices with your naked eyes, but the ants do—and they subsequently exploit these foundational weaknesses in large numbers. Ants are attracted to food, moisture, and climate that is more controlled than the outdoors. Hence why they are large nuisances and menaces in Phoenix, where the indoor climate is always nice and mild versus the outdoors.
The Most Common Ants Found in Arizona are:
• Fire Ants
• Black Ants
• Carpenter Ants
• Pharaoh Ants
• Harvester Ants
Ants are incredibly resilient and have a survival drive far greater than each may individually physically appear. Because of this, ant infestations can get out of control quickly if not professionally treated—thereby causing severe damage to food, property, and even human or animal health and wellness. This is why it is essential to stop the infestation either before, or right when it starts, by trusting the expert Phoenix ant control exterminator experts at Insectek Pest Solutions to fight the invasion on your behalf.
