Ants are an annoying pest to have in your home and for good reason. Surveys from the National Pest Management Association show that an ant infestation is the number one nuisance pest in the United States. In that survey, it was shown that carpenter ants, odorous house ants, and pavement ants are the most common species found in the country as well.

How does an ant infestation in your house even happen? Ants will find their way into your home or business to look for food and water. Once a single carpenter ant or house ant gets into your home, you will soon find yourself with an ant problem. As they leave your home with their bellies full, ants leave a chemical trail that other flying ants, winged ants, black ants, and other ant species can sniff out. All of these other types of ants will then begin creating nests around your home or business so they are close to the source of food. Nests also allow them to move their entire ant colony if you try to kill ants on your own, allowing them to find a new path back into your home.
Ant poison and ant traps that you can buy at a store will give you the illusion that you are reducing your ant problem, but really the colony is just relocating to try again later. The best way to get rid of ants is by hiring a professional ant exterminator. Cole Pest Control provides expert ant extermination to ensure no straggling black ants in your house remain.
