Decatur Pest Control Information

 

Decatur, GA, is a hub for the the arts and the artistic. Decatur residents can enjoy food, music, and art every day of the year. In fact, Decatur has so much to offer that visitors come from all over to experience the city. But don’t let unwanted visitors like pests and bug ruin your experience.

One of the most common home invaders is the little black ant. (That’s really the name of a type of ant, not just a description.)

Little black ants are tiny. Workers are only 1.5mm long. But you rarely see one alone. Ants are social insects, and you will probably only know you have an ant infestation when you see a line of ants marching through your bathroom, kitchen, or food pantry.

Little black ants don’t usually live in your home. They are native to Mexico, the U.S., and southern Canada. Outside, they tend to live under rocks, in decaying wood, or in open, grassy areas. If you’ve ever turned over a rock to find hundreds of swarming little ants, you’ve probably found little black ants. Close to home, little black ants can form nests in small cracks in a cement foundation or a wall.

 

Why do I have ants?

 

Ants come into your home looking for food and water. Little black ants are omnivorous and feed on sweet foods, greasy food, meat, fruits, and vegetables. Even if you keep a clean house, ants may be able to find food. Just a few granules of sugar or some crumbs behind and appliance are enough to draw a trail of ants into your home.

 

What can I do about ants?

 

Getting rid of ants can be tricky. Most sprays or insecticides you can purchase at the store only kill the ants you can see. They don’t have any residual effect and won’t get to the ant colony. Keeping your home clean and storing food in airtight containers helps, but it’s hard to achieve 100% food security.

Your best bet is to call and expert like People’s Pest Control. We will assess you ant problem and determine the best course of action, including treatments that get to the colony and keep ants from coming back. Of course, keeping ants out is an ongoing battle. They’ve been around a lot longer than we have and they have us greatly outnumbered. But with quarterly visits from People’s Pest Control you can keep ants out.
