Ants are not as harmless as they appear to be

If you wonder whether ant control is necessary, the answer is yes. Ants, although they may seem harmless, can become a major problem in the home, causing not only property damage, but also health risks.

Among the problems associated with ant infestations are:

  • Risk of food contamination. Ants can be vectors of disease. They can also damage food, which impacts the household economy.
  • All ants are capable of biting, some ant bites can trigger an allergy. Being bitten is already uncomfortable.
  • Ants can cause material damage. Some ants are capable of gnawing through wood, electrical installations, among other things.

What may be causing the infestation?

The reasons for an ant infestation can be many, which is why ant control must be carried out by experts. However, here are some of the most common reasons:

  • Leaving food out. Especially prepared, unsealed food. Leftover food or poorly cleaned eating surfaces are more common.
  • Greased surfaces. This is not only grease, but also viscous liquids, which are often sweet and attract ants.
  • Dirty rubbish bins. In numerous instances, we pay attention to the inside of the home and forget about the bins. Poor cleaning can cause the bins to fill up with food waste such as sodas, honey, and so on.
  • There are leaks in pipes. Ants are attracted to water sources, as they need water to survive.

At Huntsman Pest control, we offer a pest eradication system that is very effective. We will start by visiting your home to assess the problem, then implement the solution and follow up. Our treatments are guaranteed for up to one year.

Types of Ants

BLACK GARDEN ANT (Lasius Niger)

The black garden ant (Lasius niger), also known as the common black ant, is a formicine ant, the type species of the subgenus Lasius, which is found across Europe and in some parts of North America, South America, Asia and Australasia. 

The European species was split into two species; L. niger, which are found in open areas; and L. platythorax, which is found in forest habitats. It is monogynous, meaning colonies contain a single queen.

Lasius niger colonies can reach in size up to around 40,000 workers in rare cases, but 4,000–7,000 is around average.

PHARAOH ANT (Monomorium Pharaonis)

The pharaoh ant (Monomorium pharaonis) is a small (2 mm) yellow or light brown, almost transparent ant notorious for being a major indoor nuisance pest, especially in hospitals. 

The pharaoh ant, a cryptogenic species, has now been introduced to virtually every area of the world, including Europe, the Americas, Australasia and Southeast Asia. It is a major pest in the United States, Australia, and Europe.

Pharaoh ants are a tropical species, but they also thrive in buildings almost anywhere, even in temperate regions provided central heating is present.

GHOST ANT (Tapinoma Melanocephalum)

Tapinoma melanocephalum is a species of ant that goes by the common name ghost ant. They are recognised by their dark head and pale or translucent legs and gaster (abdomen). This colouring makes this tiny ant seem even smaller.

Due to how widespread the ghost ant is, the exact native range is not exactly known. However, the species is assumed to originate from the African or Oriental regions, seeing it is a tropical species. 

This has been proven considering the ghost ant cannot adapt to colder climates and are only confined to greenhouses and buildings that provide considerable conditions that allows the species to thrive.

PAVEMENT ANT (Tetramorium Caespitum)

Tetramorium is a genus of ants in the subfamily Myrmicinae that includes more than 520 species.

These ants are also known as pavement ants.
Workers of most species have a ridged clypeus, an appendaged stinger, mandibles with 3 or 4 teeth, and antennae with 11 or 12 segments or with 3-segmented clubs on the tips.

The genus is divided into several species groups defined by various characters.

Most known species nest in the soil, in decaying wood, or in leaf litter. Some live in trees or in termite nests.
