More Information on Ants

Ants are both predators and scavengers in hunt for sugary, oily or foods high in protein. They usually enter and infest our homes when they locate a source of food.

Ants communicate using a chemical called “pheromones”. They are able to leave trials of this chemical to indicate where a food source is coming from. This is why we usually see armys of ants following the same trial to and from the nest and food source.

Ants acan usually be controlled with good hygiene, especially around areas that store food. If infestations get too bad then we can eliminate them using sprays, dusts or baits to get target the nests.
