Say Good Riddance To Ants In Your Florence Home

Ants are some of the most industrious insects in nature. They work as a team to establish their colonies, and each colony member has a role. Though ants do many things together, they tend to send out individuals when exploring their environment, which allows them to be efficient with their resources. Once an ant finds a resource that it feels may benefit the colony, it will return to the colony while leaving a pheromone trail behind; this allows other ants to follow the trail back to the resource to quickly and efficiently make the best use of it.

These traits are great for ants but terrible for you if they feel your property and home are a good place to visit. If ants do come to visit, you need effective pest control in Florence, and you need it fast. When that time comes, Pest Guard Exterminating is the company to call. We know the latest ant control solutions, and we can help you. 

One Ant Usually Means More

You may think that seeing an ant in your home is no big deal. It’s only one ant, after all. The problem is that the one little ant is going to tell all of the other ants that your home is great - a great place to live, that is. In short order, all ants will follow the pheromone trail back to your house and start building their own home. They won’t have any problem doing this because the average queen can lay thousands of eggs in a short time; this is why ant infestations can seemingly come out of nowhere and why they can grow so large in such a short time. 

Proper ant control in your house is critical to keep your home free from them. That’s where Pest Guard Exterminating comes in. Contact us today because we know how to get rid of ants in the kitchen or anywhere else. 

Ants In The Home Can Create Many Problems

Ant infestations can be irritating or bothersome but can also introduce you to significant concerns. Ants love nesting in electronics and sheltered spaces and can cause electrical shortages and appliance failures. Ants can also cause problems with your A/C system if they infest your outside unit or air ducts. 

Ants are associated with allergies in susceptible individuals. Some ants, like fire ants, can deliver painful, venomous stings with a history of sending some individuals to the hospital. There’s a lot of bad that ants can do to you and your house. 

Pest Guard Exterminating can do a lot of good for you. We know ant control in Florence and can help. Drop us a line today to discuss what we can do for you.
