Type of Ants
While there are over 12,000 different types of ant species in the world, and ants are found almost everywhere on the planet, except Greenland, Iceland, Antarctica, and various island nations. However, in Edmonton, there are only seven different types of ants to be concerned with:
Carpenter Ant: While these ants nest most often in rotting, or moist wood, they are not the same as termites. Termites will eat the rotting wood, while carpenter ants simply chew through the wood, leaving small piles of chewed wood outside their nests. If people see holes in wooden parts around their home or yard, with tiny piles of wood outside the holes, they should call ant pest control right away in order to get these destructive pests eliminated.
Field Ant: Most likely, if people find these ants, they will be outside, as that is their preferred living areas. You may find them in your yard, or garden, building nests in your lawn, or even in fields and parks. Homeowners will know they have an infestation of field ants by their distinct dirt heaps they create as they are building their nests.
Little Black Ant: Most Edmontonians have likely spotted these well known ants. As their common name suggests, they are small and black. These are the ants that are attracted to food within and surrounding your home. However, they are also scavenger bugs, who will eat anything such as insects or bird droppings, which make them particularly prolific and more difficult to get rid of.
To make your home less desirable for these pests to live in, be mindful about not letting food sit out. Put food away promptly, wipe up spills and crumbs. Vacuum and mop regularly, and if you have pets, you might want to consider not leaving their food out all the time, and wash their food bowls in between feedings. And when you spot these insects, give ant pest control a call.
Odorous House Ant: Also known as coconut ant, sugar ant or stink ant, these household pests get their name from the terrible smell they emit if they get squished or crushed. Despite the fact that this variety of ant will typically live in swamps, bogs or even on beaches, where they build shallow nests. These ants are strategic, and will absolutely colonize indoors, mostly around water pipes, such as your kitchen and bathroom sinks, bathtubs, showers, and anywhere moist.
Homeowners will be able to find these ants throughout the entire year in Edmonton. If you spot these ants, give ant pest control a call, and they will be able to help remove them from your home.
Pharaoh Ant: Many people tend to overlook this type of ant due to their small size of approximately 2 mm long, but also because they are practically translucent. They are often identified by their coloring, which is yellow to light reddish brown. However, the queen of the pharaoh ant colony is twice the size and darker than the worker ants. Just like odorous house ants, this type of ant will likely build nests in the more damp or humid areas of your home, like kitchens, bathrooms, washing machines or dishwashers.
Moisture Ant: Like their name suggests, these ants are attracted to moisture, and an infestation of this kind usually indicates that you have a moisture problem in your home. Not only will you need to call ant pest control to help, but you likely also have rotting or decaying wood. If you would like an expert to help you with that, they will have a list of people you can call to help you fix the moisture problem, and someone to fix the rotting or decaying wood.
Pavement Ant: You will likely be able to figure out you have pavement ants by seeing tiny dirt piles near a paved area. These ants are also on the smaller size, measuring 2.5 to 3 mm in length, and are quite different in looks compared to other ants. They tend to be light brown or black, and have noticeable dented lines on their head and body. When you notice piles of dirt anywhere near your sidewalks, driveway or walkways, call ant pest control today.
