Signs Of An Ant Infestation In Your Home

When ants in Boca Raton find their way into homes, they often announce their presence. They do this by freely climbing over countertops, tables, and across floors. Many pests that live in our area are not this brave. Keeping this in mind, not all ants freely crawl through living areas when they invade homes. One species in our area has a habit of chewing tunnels into structural wood. This species is the carpenter ant. These pests invade deep inside structural wood and cause problems from the inside out. But they don't always show themselves in living areas. To identify these pests look for signs like frass clinging to walls inside your home, pin-sized holes running into structural wood, and large red, black, or red and black ants. Besides these ants, identifying other common types of ants is not difficult. Despite this, if you would like help in understanding what species are inside or around your home, let us pay you a visit for a quick pest inspection. 

The Problems An Ant Infestation Can Create In Your Home

Most of the time ants are just annoying. The majority of these pests like to invade homes to find food and cause no real problem in the process. That said, there are some species in our area that pose a legitimate threat to human health and property. Let’s start with the pharaoh ant. This pest has a bad habit of consuming nasty items from garbage containers and can carry bacteria around inside homes. Two diseases you might contract from having pharaoh ants around include staphylococcus and salmonellosis. 

On the other side of things are carpenter ants. These pests are not dangerous but are instead destructive. As mentioned, they actively chew holes into the structural wood of homes and can cause extensive damage over time. Thankfully, they are relatively easy to identify and are controllable. What you need to keep in mind is that ants can only cause problems if you allow them to. Take action today to stop these pests before they are able to cause issues indoors.
