How to Tell If You Have an Ant Infestation
The most obvious sign that you have an infestation is the presence of live ants, although just spotting a few ants here or there doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve invaded. However, if you see a large number of ants, especially in places where you prepare food, you’ll want to contact a professional to get the problem under control. A few other signs that you might have a major issue include the following:
- Nests: Some nests, like small piles of dirt outside, are easy to spot, while others might be inside the walls.
- Pathways: When you’re watching multiple ants follow the same path in and out, it’s usually a sign that more are to follow.
- Rot: Carpenter ants, which can cause thousands of dollars in structural damage to a building, burrow through wet, rotten wood to get inside a home. Check near broken gutters or anywhere where sitting water might accumulate next to the structure.
