PEST LIBRARY / ANTS
Ants are the definition of “tough and tiny,” as they are able to lift 100 times their own body weight. Ants in house or in a business pose a serious problem for home and business owners alike. There are over a thousand different types of ants! The main types that are common nuisances in homes are:
There’s nothing worse than seeing a trail of black ants in your home. In most cases, an ant infestation is difficult to control on your own, and should be dealt with by a pest control professional. Common areas where you find these pests are those that are most vulnerable to moisture, such as:
Decks and porches

Many ants breed by swarming, which is when winged males and female queens fly (temporarily) to mate. Carpenter ants and thief ants breed this way. Ants that do not reproduce by swarming use a process called budding. Budding is when the queen and worker ants leave their current ant nest to form a new colony. Budding is used by fire and pharoah ants.
