Do You Need Ant Control and Extermination at Your Property?
Do you need ant control and extermination at your property? The ants may be marching one by one, but that’s no hurrah, hurrah for property owners in Massachusetts. Although these pests may seem as if they’re harmful little bugs, the exact opposite is true. In fact, an infestation of ants will lead to issues now and in the future. For example, some types of ants will get into your food, which is a bit gross. Ants may also invade your home or building and eat the wood and insulation.
This can cause structural damage to your residential or commercial property that’s incredibly expensive to repair. So, do you need ant control and extermination? If you notice any of the following signs, the answer is yes. If you see ants in and or around your property during the summer months then you need to call a professional ant exterminator ASAP. Although ants tend to stay underground during the cold winter months, they re-emerge during the warm spring and summer months in order to search for food.
So, if you spot ants inside or outside of your home or building on a regular basis when the weather starts to warm up, it’s a tell-tale sign that you need ant control and extermination at your property. This holds especially true if you see them going into the walls. The ants will tend to form a line and all head into the same crack. The ants will actually leave a scent with the intent of leading other ants to the food source and then back to their nest. If you start to find ant wings on the floor, it’s another sign that you have an ant problem on your hands.
Many people don’t know this, but ants form and shed wings during their reproductive phase. If you find ant wings on the floors inside of your home or building, chances are high that the ants have made their way inside of your walls. At this point, the only way to get rid of them is to contact a professional that specializes in ant control and extermination.
Last but certainly not least, if you start seeing random dirt piles in the corners of your floors, especially in the basement, it’s a good indication that ants are building colonies inside of your property. Ants use dirt and soil to build hills outside and do the same exact thing when building a nest inside.
