What types of ants might infest my home?
Arizona is home to a wide range of ant species, so your home may be vulnerable to several different varieties of the pest. Among the most common ant species are odorous house ants, Argentine ants, fire ants, and carpenter ants. Odorous house ants are small and brown, and they like to nest in walls. These are the most prevalent house ants in Phoenix. Argentine ants are also small with a dark brown complexion. They feast on sugars and oils but are usually found in plants. Fire ants are reddish-brown and can pose a threat to your family because of their painful stings. Carpenter ants are large, black ants that can bore into your home’s foundation and cause damage.
What attracts ants to my house?
The main reason ants enter your home is to find a food source. Maintaining clean floors and countertops will discourage them from establishing colonies in your house. Though ants can have a wide range of food preferences, they are drawn to crumbs left behind after you finish cooking or eating. Ants are especially attracted to sweet, sugary foods.
How do ants get inside my home?
Ants tend to travel in packs and establish colonies near a food source. Because of their small stature, they can enter your home in a variety of different ways. If you leave doors or windows open, they can enter freely in search of their next meal. But others will work even harder to navigate their way to your home’s interior. They may crawl through tiny cracks in your foundation, come through narrow spaces around your doors, or even enter via the roof.
Can ants harm me?
Ants are not deadly creatures, but they can cause pain or discomfort to you or your family members as well as damage to your home. Odorous house ants will not bite or sting – they are merely looking for food. However, fire ants can sting you and carpenter ants will bite. Carpenter ants are especially troublesome because their bites can be painful, and they may also damage your home’s structure when they choose to bore holes for their colonies.
