Ants – Dallas Pest Control treats them all
Ants are amazing, little critters that come in a wide variety of different species, each with their own specific strengths and weaknesses. While only some ants are specifically destructive to property, all ants can become a problem if left to their own devices. The mindset of an ant is to do its duty to help its colony survive. That can include searching your home for crumbs and food, stinging and biting potential threats, and even, in the carpenter ants’ case, digging tunnels through the wood of your house.
Carpenter Ants are very bad for your property. They target wooden structures, and logs. These are unique in that they prefer to make their nests out of wood. They create tunnels in wood much like other ants do in the dirt. The end result looks pretty amazing, but it is really bad for your home. Without proper Dallas Pest Control measure, they can quickly make parts of your house look like swiss cheese.
The way that carpenter ants usually introduce themselves is through a winged female who has just finished her mating flight. She finds a suitable source of wood for her colony and begins to produce eggs. These wood sources are usually old, and slightly rotten stumps, wood piles, logs, and the like. Sometimes the initial colony will start in wood of similar quality on your home, but more often they will find a suitable wood source in the yard and begin there.
With ants, finding the source of the problem is usually not that hard. You just follow the trail back to the nest. Carpenter ants are trickier than regular ants because they don’t all stay in the same spot. They branch out and create “satellite colonies”. Only larvae and worker ants are found in these colonies so conventional methods where the ant takes a bait back to the queen aren’t as effective. Additionally, if you do manage to remove a satellite colony, it is usually only a short matter of time before it is back with a vengeance. In order to fully remove the carpenter ant menace, you have to find the mother colony.
Evolve pest control has multiple methods that we use to take care of carpenter ants. Not only do we create a three foot barrier between your home and your lawn to stop them from coming to the house, but we also search out all the possible places that the mother colony might be hiding. Sometimes it can happen where the mother colony is outside the boundaries of your property. In cases like that Evolve pest control removes the ants on your property and takes measures to stop them from coming back.
In all cases with carpenter ants it is important to remember that there is a possibility that a new queen could fly in. If you had your ant problem treated already but see new activity, it is possible that it is from an entirely different source. In those cases, especially if you see new signs of winged carpenter ants, give Evolve a call, and we will send out a Dallas pest control specialist to take care of the problem.
Other ants besides the carpenter ant can become a problem as well. Fire ants are an especially dangerous problem because they have a painful sting, and a very short temper. They are recognizable by their small size, and red coloring. If you have children or pets it is important to look over your property often to make sure that you don’t have a colony of red ants trying to move in. At the first sign of fire ants call Evolve and we will sent out a Dallas pest control specialist to take care of the nest before someone has a chance to get hurt.
