While we all welcome spring with open arms, this season also brings the return of dreaded ants. These pests are a nuisance, and some species can cause significant problems for your home and family. If you suspect an ant problem in your house, this guide is for you.

We’ll start by explaining why ants invade homes and reviewing the problems they can create for your household. We’ll also provide some simple DIY ant prevention tips to help deter them. Keep reading to learn more about effective ant control in Mesa with Pest Pros LLC.

Why Ants Invade Homes

Ant colonies contain thousands of ants that work together to provide for the needs of their nest mates. Worker ants leave the nest to search for necessary provisions like food, water, or shelter if the conditions outside become unfavorable. If they find what they are looking for inside your home, they leave a scent trail for the rest of the ants in the colony to follow.

Ant infestations can be challenging to eliminate, especially when dealing with a large colony or one nesting inside the house.

How Some Ants Can Be More Than Just A Nuisance

Almost every type of ant that invades a home can cause problems other than being a general nuisance. The following list describes some of the issues that can come with an infestation:

  • Species like odorous house ants can contaminate food they get into and food prep surfaces.

  • Carpenter ants infest wood, weakening your home’s structural integrity over time.

  • When fire ants invade homes, they can become aggressive and sting multiple times.

  • Fire ants can damage electrical equipment, cause short circuits, and chew the insulation off wires, creating a fire hazard.
