How Do Ant Infestations Start?
Ant infestation is a very common pest problem throughout Arizona as this pest nuisance can cause pain from stings and damage to your food, home and office. Ants enter your home or business through even the tiniest cracks, in search of moisture as well as food. The ants foraging in and around your home or office are workers. Workers that find food share this information with other worker ants by leaving a chemical trail along the substrate as they crawl back to the nest. This “trail pheromone” which is undetectable to humans, adheres to the substrate for long periods of time and helps other ants find the food at the end of the trail.
The Most Common Type of Ants in Arizona are:
- Fire Ants
- Black Ants
- Carpenter Ants
- Pharaoh Ants
- Harvester Ants
