One of the most common pests to be found in and around homes are Ants. They have a wide variety of food preferences and nesting habits. Some ants nest in moisture damaged or decaying wood, while the others nest in homes behind baseboards, moldings, countertops, and similar areas. And some ants build nests in soil.

Ants feed on various types of food, including starches, fats, meats, and sweets. Some ants also feed on honeydew. In order to control the ant colonies, knowledge of their nesting and food preferences is very important.

Different types of ants can lead to different types of damage. Most of the ants are primarily a nuisance and cause minimal damage. Some ants, such as carpenter ants are capable of weakening wooden structures. Others, like Pharaoh ants may infest food. Often there are no diseases linked with ants. However, in hospitals, the Pharaoh ants could transmit disease organisms, like Staphylococcus.

To prevent the damage caused to your food and home structures, eliminating the pest ants is a must. Pest In The City provides professional pest control services with the help of which you can easily keep ants from your property.
