The end of summer and beginning of fall are prime times to take on ants. From fire ants to pharaoh ants, these household and yard pests need to go. If you have used DIY products and noticed that the ant population in your house drops but never goes away, then you are not alone. Here is a close look at ant control.
Ants and the Colony
The lifestyle of ants is such what a portion of the work ants forage for food while other parts of the community do other chores. The ants you find in your house are foraging, and they represent only a small percentage of ants from that one colony. That is why DIY ant control products don’t really ever stop the flow of ants. As you kill off the foragers, more take their place. An ant colony has only a few goals, and one of those is to store food for winter. Those products are never really touching the colony; only the foraging ants. The supply of ants is virtually unending.
