It can be difficult to know if you just have some ants or a major ant control problem. If you see a few ants in your home, you may just squish them and think it’s no big deal. To know if you actually have an ant problem and need to call an ant control company, here are four signs that indicate you do indeed have a problem that needs to be addressed by a professional.
- Ant Nests – An ant nest looks like a small pile of dirt with a hole in the middle. If you see any ant nests in or near your home, then it is recommended to call an ant control company.
- Ant Trails – When you see ants walking in a trail or line, this indicates that the ants have found a food source and are working hard to bring that food back to the colony.
- Ants – A random ant here or there isn’t usually a problem. But if you are seeing ants daily or large amounts of ants, then you likely have an ant control issue.
- Noises – Ants are small and don’t make a lot of noise, but if you put your ear to a wall near their colony, you will likely be able to hear them moving around.
If you have one or more of these signs above, then give us a call at Pest Advisor. Waiting to take care of an ant problem will only allow the ant problem to grow and become more difficult to manage.
