Ants Our Name Says It All!


Ants are common household pests and are easy to identify. They have three distinct body regions - head, thorax, and abdomen. Ants also have six legs and a pair of antennae. The reproductive members of the colony are winged, but only emerge from the colony a few times a year. Ants range in size from small to large and come in a variety of colors, including black, brown, red, and yellow. Ants typically nest outside, but often find their way inside homes while foraging for food or if the weather outside becomes too harsh. Once inside, many stay and build nests. Common species of ants found living in our area include ghost ants, Florida carpenter ants, crazy ants, and pharaoh ants.

Ants are often described as either dangerous or a nuisance. Nuisance ants usually invade homes in large numbers, are difficult to prevent and eliminate, but they pose no real threat to people or property. Ghost ants and crazy ants are both types of nuisance ants. Dangerous ants are those species that carry and transmit diseases and bacteria, bite or sting, and cause damage to the structures of properties. Pharaoh ants are considered dangerous because of the pathogens they carry, which they can transmit to people. Pharaoh ants are particularly dangerous in hospitals, where they contaminate patient wounds. Florida carpenter ants are destructive, and an infestation can damage the structural integrity of a home or business by the fire ants tunneling through and nesting inside your property's structural wood.

Preventing problems with ants can be difficult, but there are several things you can do to keep them out. Trim overgrown trees, bushes, and other vegetation away from the exterior of your home. Leave a barrier between any mulch and grass and your home’s foundation. Inspect the outside of your home, sealing any spaces found. Make sure screens are intact, place weather stripping around windows and doors, and install door sweeps. Use dehumidifiers to reduce moisture levels in your home and repair leaky pipes or fixtures. Limit food sources by keeping locking lids on trash cans and compost bins, keeping outdoor eating areas cleaned up, and picking up fallen fruits and vegetables in garden areas.
