Ant Control – Utah Pest Control
If you’ve seen one ant, you can bet there are more lurking inside or outside of your home.
Ant colonies send out scout ants to find food and water. Once found, this sustenance is carried back to the rest of the colony, and signs of an infestation are imminent. At this point, the best solution is to seek professional help to rid your home not only of the ants you can see, but the hundreds and thousands that are hiding in your walls or coming through that crack in your bathroom.
Signs of Infestation
Here are some signs to look for when you suspect you may have an ant infestation:
- Even just a few ants where you keep food.
- Consistent ant sightings where meat, sugar, oils, and fats are stored.
- Wood damage or signs of sawdust.
- Ant hills and trails anywhere in your home or on your property.
The Problem with Ants
The problem with ants doesn’t tend to be the health risks they pose or the danger they may be to your family, but rather just the sheer number that may be present in a colony. Depending on the type of ant present on your property, you may notice anything from the small annoyance of wasting food the ants get into, to actual damage to your home.
