Common Signs of an Ant Infestation

Ants are one of the most pervasive nuisances in homes worldwide, but fortunately there are clear signs to indicate if your home has an ant infestation. One of the primary ways to tell is seeing visible swarms of ants crawling around your kitchen or other areas of your house, as well as ant trails which can form visible lines between places where they find food and their nesting area. 

Seeing winged male and female ants also signals an ant infestation, as they are the reproductive assigned with the task of locating, and starting, new colonies away from the original nest. Another sign might be finding mounds along exterior or interior walls; these mounds contain substances such as wood debris and soil particles, indicating their efforts to establish a colony near you. 

To bring your home back to its prior ant-free state it is best to contact a professional exterminator service as soon as you spot any of these common signs of an ant infestation.

What Are the Common Ants You Might Find?

Ants are a common bug found in many homes across the country, but depending on where you live, the type of ant can vary. Some of the most common ants include pavement ants, pharaoh ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. Pavement ants are black or dark brown and are usually found outdoors in driveways, patios, and sidewalks. 

Odorous house ants are smaller than pavement ants and their color varies from black to light brown. These could be the ones climbing up counters when you're cooking since they're attracted to sweet foods. Lastly, carpenter ants live in wood and will tunnel through it for their nests, so if you have any wood structures–like fence posts–in your yard that’s a likely sign there’s an ant issue close by. Recognizing different types of these small insects can help you find effective ways to deal with them.

Health Risks from Ants

Ants may not seem like a big health risk, but they can be quite dangerous when brought into the home. A single ant in the kitchen or bathroom can bring in germs and bacteria that can spread disease, not to mention their ability to contaminate food. 

Studies have shown that ants are carriers of E. coli, salmonella and several species of parasites that can cause major health problems in humans if left untreated. Therefore, it is important to take precautions such as keeping your kitchen clean and inspecting any area where ants might enter the house in order to ensure your family remains safe from potential health risks.
