The best way to get rid of ants permanently is with professional pest control and ant extermination because we have all the right tools and knowledge. While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything ants can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.
You must control ants because they can create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Spire Pest Control has the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively provide ant control near you.
Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp. You need to control fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants - they are among those stinging ants that live in the United States.
Carpenter ants. You must exterminate carpenter ants because they can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.
Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings.
The main difference is the size. While most ants are about ⅛ inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to ½ inch, about four times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.
