Greensboro's Ultimate Guide To Successful Ant Control

Ants are one of the most common pests that Greensboro homeowners can face. Ants are small and can get into almost any structure. They are very adept explorers and will investigate all aspects of their environment. Although ants live in colonies, they explore as individuals to make the most efficient use of their resources. Once an ant finds something it likes, it will soon bring many others back. Ants tend to build their colonies behind walls and between floors, complicating any effort to eliminate them. Effective ant control often requires professional help to ensure success.

How To Identify The Type Of Ant Infesting Your Home

Ant control in Greensboro is more effective if you know what you are against. Here are some of the ants that may come to visit:

  • Carpenter ants: Carpenter ants build their homes in wood and can severely damage the structure of your home.
  • Fire ants: Fire ants can deliver painful stings and attack in swarms.
  • Pavement Ants: Pavement ants tend to build their homes underneath concrete and pavement slabs, making them difficult to eliminate.

These are some of the ants that may come to visit your home. If you need ant control in your house, Go-Forth Home Services wants to help. Get in touch with us today to see how our safe and effective treatments can help you get rid of ants.

An Ant Infestation Can Be Very Problematic For Homeowners

Ants can be considered nuisance pests but can also bring other serious problems. Carpenter ants can severely damage the wooden structures of your home and weaken them. Fire ants can deliver painful, venomous stings and attack in swarms. Ants are very good at getting into stored food and will contaminate any food source that they can infest. Finally, ants can also damage electronics and appliances if they build their colonies inside them. 

Do-it-yourself (DIY) pest control efforts do not work well with ants. Although they live in colonies, they tend to explore as individuals. DIY pest control may get some of the ants, but not all of them, and the remaining ants can easily rebuild their colony.

How And Why Ants Find Their Way Inside

Ants are very industrious and will explore all aspects of their environment. If an ant finds something it likes, it will return to the colony while leaving a pheromone trail behind. The other ants can subsequently use this trail to find their way back. If they like what they see when they come, all of the ants will move to that area. Ants are small and naturally adept at gaining access to almost any structure through even the smallest openings. Some things that attract ants to your house are exposed garbage, dirty counters, and dirty floors. All of these areas offer plenty of food opportunities for ants.
