The house ant's average colony contains 3000-4000 members. These busy insects will scour your home or business for food, and once they do, they keep coming back. There are many types of ants you may find in your home or business, and some are more of a threat than others. Pharaoh ants, for example, will often infest food and food storage areas. While carpenter ants will also search your home for food, they are also a threat to your furniture and building because they burrow in wood while creating their nests.
Ant-Related Damage and Health Risks
- Ants can be reported on inspections for real-estate purposes.
- Ants come into your home or business in search of food, resulting in more and more ants being drawn to food storage and preparation areas over time.
- Carpenter Ants:
- Burrow into wood to make nest galleries.
- Presence may increase symptoms of allergies and asthma.
