Ants

The majority of ant species in the world prefer warm climates with lots of sun and Georgia provides just the environment they need to thrive. There are over 1,000 types of ants in the United States. Some of the most common types are:

  • Odorus House Ants
  • Argentine Ants
  • Carpenter Ants
  • Fire Ants
  • Ghost Ants
  • Pavement Ants

If you have an infestation of ants in your home or business, it can be a big problem. Common house ants aren’t typically carriers of disease, but you still don’t want to have them crawling through your cupboards and desk.

 

The most common reason for ant infestations is food. Ants will travel long distances in search of food, and once they have found a stable source they tend to stick around.  If you’ve been attacked by ants at your home or office, call NOBLE PEST SERVICES to come and assess the situation and provide you with an extermination solution. Our specialists are trained to identify and control ants through:

 

  • Entry: Even the smallest crack or opening is enough for ants seeking sweet kitchen aromas to enter.

  • Nest Location: Ants can nest just about anywhere in a structure including in the walls or foundation.

  • Colony Size: Ant colonies can quickly grow to numbers of 500,000 or more and can move rapidly when threatened.

  • Colony Lifetime: While worker ants live just seven years, a queen may live up to fifteen supporting the colony the whole time.
