Did you know that ants are the top pest problem in the U.S.?
These tiny crawlers enter homes and businesses through cracks and openings looking for water and food sources. Once they find a source of nourishment, they leave an invisible chemical trail for others to follow back to the site.
Highly mobile and efficient, ants can nest in a variety of locations in and around your property and can quickly relocate the entire ants colony when under attack. There is no reason to live with ants hoping they will go away. KC Pest Away is an ant control service and is knowledgeable on how to rid area of this problem.
Knowing what species of ant is present helps to determine what ant control is best. In most cases, the most effective, permanent solution is to find and treat the nest; queens must be killed to properly eliminate a colony. KC Pest Away will do this.
The odorous house ant, which many people call the sweet ant, has bad body odor. Squish one between your fingers and sniff. It smells like rancid coconut suntan lotion. That smell is a defense mechanism, an alarm to alert other ants that something is amiss.
This stinky ant, found from coast to coast, may build nests in mulch, piles of logs, firewood, boards and other debris,
A very important method for preventing an ant problem indoors is to eliminate high moisture conditions that are attractive to them. Also, replace any moisture-damaged wood. Be careful that wood or lumber that is stored in a garage or near the house is kept dry and, if possible, elevated to allow air circulation.
