The Ants Come Marching In
Let the experts at Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions stop them from invading your Waxhaw property!
Ant colonies range from a few dozen individuals to highly organized groups of millions, occupying large areas. Although in some cultures they are used in food, medication and rituals, here they are pests with an unmatched ability to protect their queens – working in unity to overrun any obstacle.
One ant can lift 20 times its own body weight, and its diet can include meat, eggs, oils and fats. Pheromone trails help ensure that foraged food will arrive back at the nest to nurture the queen.
A few tips to discourage ants from nesting near your home (or moving in):
- Eliminate standing water
- Keep tree branches cut back from the house
- Reduce cracks along the bottom of your foundation
- Keep firewood or building materials away from your home
