South Florida Ant Control and Prevention for Your Home
There are more than 12,000 species of ants all over the world. An ant can lift 20 times its own body weight. If a second grader was as strong as an ant, she would be able to pick up a car. Some queen ants can live for many years and have millions of babies! Ants don’t have ears. Ants “hear” by feeling vibrations in the ground through their feet. When foraging, ants leave a pheromone trail so that they know where they’ve been, Queen ants have wings, which they shed when they start a new nest. When the queen of the colony dies, the colony can only survive a few months. Queens are rarely replaced and the workers are not able to reproduce.
Ant Prevention Control
Eliminate standing water. Pests, such as ants, mosquitoes and termites, are attracted to moisture. Keep tree branches and other plants cut back from the house. Sometimes pests use these branches to get into your home. Make sure that there are no cracks or little openings around the bottom of your house. Sometimes pests use these to get into your home. Make sure that firewood and building materials are not stored next to your home. Pests like to build nests in stacks of wood.
