Collectively, ants outnumber all other species on Earth, yet they do more good than harm. Ants are nature’s cleaning crew as they contribute to the process of decomposition by feeding on organic waste, dead animals, and other insects. They also work to aerate the ground and till the soil, fertilizing and creating fertile topsoil. When in their natural habitat, the work they do is of the utmost importance, but when they invade your property, garden, or home, they become a pest that needs to be controlled. Here are the common ant species you may encounter.
Of all insects that infest homes, ants are the most common. Ants are also very tricky pests to control. If you’ve tried to eliminate the pesky invaders yourself, you’ve likely discovered that just because you kill a few ants, you haven’t solved an infestation. The vast majority of pest control sprays that you purchase at your local hardware store cannot eliminate an infestation. Most of those sprays simply act as a repellent. Some of those sprays may even make your problem worse by causing the ant colony to bud. Ant budding is when the colony splits to make two separate colonies. The frustration of spraying the wrong pesticides has left many homeowners overwhelmed with the scope of their ant problems. You have good reason to contact a pest control professional and Bulwark Exterminating has a five-step ant control process that is a guaranteed ant control solution.
