Summertime Ant Control in Georgia with Pest Force

Summer in Georgia is a season of warmth, sunshine, and outdoor activities. However, it also brings a less welcome visitor: ants. There are few places they don’t love to invade: backyard barbecues, picnics, and even your kitchen counters. At Pest Force, we’re here to help you keep your home and yard ant-free. Let’s explore the different types of ants you might encounter and how our services can ensure your summer remains enjoyable and pest-free with Pest Force’s ant control services.

Common Types of Ants in Georgia

Georgia is home to several ant species, each with its own unique habits and preferences. To best control an ant infestation in your home, it’s important to know what you’re dealing with. If you’re unsure, we can help you identify the ants in your home with a free inspection with Pest Force.

Carpenter Ants

Notorious for their tendency to destroy wooden structures, carpenter ants can cause significant structural damage to your home. They excavate wood to build their nests, leaving behind smooth tunnels. These ants are typically large, black or red, and can be spotted around wooden structures or damp areas.

Argentine Ants

These small, light to dark brown ants are notorious for forming massive colonies. Argentine ants are particularly challenging because they can establish multiple interconnected nests. They are attracted to sweet substances and can quickly infest your kitchen, pantry, or any area with food.

Odorous House Ants

Aptly named for the unpleasant odor they emit when crushed, odorous house ants are small and dark brown to black. They are known for invading homes in search of food and water, often forming long trails as they march towards their chosen food source.

Fire Ants

These aggressive ants are well-known for their painful stings. Fire ants build large mounds in open, sunny areas and can pose a serious threat to both humans and pets. Their stings can cause severe allergic reactions in some individuals.

Pavement Ants

Pavement ants are small, dark brown to black ants that typically nest in cracks of pavement and concrete. They are known for their ability to invade homes in search of food, particularly sweets and greasy substances.

Preventing Ant Infestations

Preventing ant infestations begins with understanding their behavior and habitats. Here are some proactive steps you can take to minimize the risk of ants invading your home:

Keep Your Home Clean: Ants are attracted to food and water sources. Regularly clean your kitchen, wipe down counters, and store food in airtight containers. Don’t forget to take out the trash regularly and clean up spills immediately.

Seal Entry Points: Inspect your home for potential entry points such as cracks, gaps, and holes. Seal these openings with caulk or weather stripping to prevent ants from gaining access.

Reduce Moisture: Many ant species, including carpenter ants, are attracted to moisture. Fix any leaks, ensure proper drainage, and use a dehumidifier in damp areas like basements and crawl spaces.

Outdoor Maintenance: Keep your yard well-maintained by trimming trees and shrubs away from your home, removing debris, and keeping firewood stored away from your house. Fire ant mounds should be treated promptly to prevent them from spreading.
