Fire ants do invade homes in search of food and water. These are omnivores and will happily eat plant and animal to sustain their colonies. Like other species of ants, fire ants have foragers – works whose job it is to search out and find food sources either to bring back to the collective or to announce the location of for a mass haul. That’s bad news in a home, but it does happen.
Ant Control for Bryan &College Station
Ant control is tricky and we have talked about this in past blogs. Topicals, generally just kill the foraging ants and do little to kill off the colony. Plus, different types of ants eat different types of foods which makes eradication of ants difficult for the DIY homeowner. That is a problem that is compounded when there are many species of ants around the home.
We provide ant control and other pest control services throughout the Bryan and College Station communities. We use our vast experience and knowledge to properly identify ants so that our pest control services are most effective, efficient, and affordable. It is that little bit extra that helps to control ants at their source rather than just kill off the foragers. The reason that topicals don’t work well to solve home invasion by ants is that most do not address the hive or collective, only the foragers. Ants have a cast system and fire ants are no different. If you want to avoid infestation of ants in your home, you must address the entire cast of ants, not just the foragers.
