With everyone being home more, Abington area homeowners are developing new levels of awareness of the local insect population – particularly the ants.
Spring is when ants start becoming active again. With winter’s harsh winds and cold temperatures safely behind them, ants can concentrate on doing what do best: roaming the area in search of food they can bring back home to feed everyone – especially their Queen, who has been busily laying thousands of eggs that will soon hatch into even more ants.
Ask an Abington Exterminator About Ants
Some people say “What’s the big deal? Ants can’t eat very much!” And while it’s true that red and black ants won’t walk off with your picnic basket, they can do a lot of damage. Carpenter ants – they’re the big black ants – actually eat wood, and they can do as much damage to your property as termites.
Another big issue: ants carry disease. They’ve been found to contribute to the spread of smallpox and dysentery, neither of which you really want your family to be exposed to. They also spread bacteria, including Salmonella. Getting the ants out of the house is important for your family’s health and safety.
Stopping Ants Completely
It’s easy to get rid of one ant – you squish them. But what happens when you have dozens, or even hundreds, of ants making their way into your home? That’s when you need your Abington exterminator.
