Great Falls Ant Control
Annoying, Aggravating, Ants
Great Falls is home to the mighty Potomac River and all that churning water. We have a lot of water and we also have a lot of ants. If you step outside and start naming insects you see, it won’t take long to see some type of ant. If they would stay outdoors they might never become a problem. Unfortunately, everything that makes your home comfortable is what draws in the ants. You have food in your pantry, and crumbs that the vacuum missed. All it takes is one ant to find a morsel, and soon all of her sisters will be marking across your floor.
Two Types of Ant Common to our Area
Yellow ants do not often invade homes. They are a medium sized ant that smells like citronella when crushed. If you do not know what citronella smells like, find a yellow ant. You will see them swarm around sidewalk cracks and throughout your yard. Sometimes they can swarm inside of your home. They do not cause damage. Carpenter ants are the problem child of the ant kingdom. They love invading your home. Carpenter ants build their nests in wood. If your home is constructed with wood, carpenter ants could invade your home. Carpenter ants are large. They have big mandibles used for chewing through wood. Unlike terminates, carpenter ants do not eat wood. They chew through it. They make extensive galleries and tunnels in the studs behind your walls. Another problem with these bad ants is they create satellite colonies. That means one infestation can quickly become a serious problem. Carpenter ants can ruin your home.
