Do You Know What An Ant Is?
Ants have become a major issue for homeowners in Livonia. They’re a social insect that belongs to the Formicidae family. Ants live in massive colonies with most nests being located underground. There are 12,000 species of ants currently classified, but some argue that there could 14,000 or more. Ants have a unique appearance thanks to their narrow waists and elbowed antennas. Ants work together for the greater good of the colony. All ants in the colony serve the queen and help other ants. Their shared purpose makes them very difficult to eliminate once they’ve entered your home.
Why Are Ants In My Home?
If you have ants in your home, you’re likely wondering why. Most ant colonies are located outside underground with the number of ants in a colony range from a few hundred to tens of thousands. Ants want to live outside with other ants, but they’ll enter your home when necessary to find food. Ants can travel hundreds of feet from their colonies to collect food and take it back to the colony. Any gap, crack, or hole in your home will allow ants to enter.
I Have Ants – Should I Worry About My Health?
