It’s not unusual to deal with an ant infestation, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that your home or place of business is unclean. Sometimes merely the location or structure of your home or workplace is enough to make it prone to infestations. All Seasons Pest Control can help rid your home of these unwanted visitors in Auburn, NY and the Finger Lakes Region!
How to Tell If You Have an Ant Infestation
The most obvious sign of ant infestation is of course, the presence of ants in your home. Ant infestations can quickly grow simply due to their nature. When ants leave their nest in search of food, they will walk randomly until they seek their next meal leaving behind them a pheromone infused trail. When an ant finally finds its food, it will pick it up and follow its scent trail back to the nest. Other ants can pick up on these pheromone trails and hence, you can develop an infestation. Whether you see a few or many ants in your house, especially in the kitchen or other areas where you prepare/store food, contact All Seasons Pest Control right away. A few other signs that you might have a major ant issue include:
Some nests, like small piles of dirt outside, are easy to spot, while others might be inside the walls.
When you’re watching multiple ants follow the same path in and out, it’s usually a sign that more are to follow.
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 where sitting water might accumulate next to the structure.
