Ant infestations sometimes feel like they are just a part of life and that there is nothing you can do about them. Besides, ants are found in every Cypress home in the summertime, right? Wrong! With help from the ant control experts at Modern Pest Control, your home can quickly become, and stay, free of ants. Ants are small and they have the ability to easily crawl across walls, along wires, and through tiny spaces, meaning that if there is a way to get into your home, they will find it. Ants typically create their main nest outside, then leave the colony to forage for food and water sources. Ants that are initially attracted to properties that offer easy access to food through things like unsecured garbage, compost piles, and garden areas. While out and about foraging for food, they often accidentally find their way inside homes through small cracks or crevices. Once inside, they will assume that the tiny crumbs found in your kitchen are an open invitation to forage for food inside your home; after they have identified your home as a food source, they will set up camp in your home and even create satellite nests. Ants can typically be found nesting inside wall voids, underneath of floors, in attic insulation, and above ceilings; all areas of your home that are, of course, hard to reach!
Having ants living and foraging for food near or inside your home is bad news for a few different reasons. Species of ants that are found living in Cypress, TX have the potential to be not only extremely annoying but dangerous and damaging as well.
