The social insects
There are about 10,000 kinds, or “species,” of ants. Within each species there are usually many different types. Ants are social insects that live in colonies and are some of the most successful insects. There are two categories of ants. Ants that live outside and will travel inside the home to search for food. Also, there are some ants that establish a colony inside your home.
Unlike other home-inhabiting ants, the larger Carpenter Ants cause structural damage to wood by excavating and nesting inside wood structures. Carpenter ants usually do not make nest in healthy wood, but tunnel wood that has become wet and started to decay. The larger Carpenter ants are about 3/8 to 1/2″ long. They may be black, or red or a combination of both colors.
Fire Ants control is important, as they are extremely territorial and will attack anyone that comes near their nest. The venom of a fire ant sting causes stinging and swells into a bump. This can cause much pain and irritation at times, especially when stung repeatedly by several at once. Our fire ant solution offers a 1-year warranty.
