Let Bugs A to Z Stop The Ants & Keep Them From Invading Your Home Again
When it comes to controlling ants, the sooner you can get in front of the problem the better. In fact, the ideal scenario is that you have ongoing year-round pest management to prevent the ants from ever making their way into your home in the first place. While one ant might not seem like a big deal, it’s important to know that it’s just the beginning. If that ant discovers a food source, it’s going to leave a trail of pheromones signaling other ants to come on in. Once that happens, it won’t be long until you’re pantries are completely invaded with ants.
What’s unique about ants is that they are willing to travel very long distances to find food and because of their size, they can enter your home through almost any crack or crevice. This makes them hard to keep out without a professional pest management plan.

Common Ants In Southern California
There are hundreds of ant species in Southern California, but we deal with a few especially prevalent varieties that can cause problems for you. When ants work their way into your home or business, it can be frustrating and hard to find out where they’re coming from. And even if you see just one ant, keep an eye out because there is always more to follow. Below are a few of the especially common and problematic varieties of ants that we see:
- House Ants: These are the ants that you find on that jar of honey in your cabinet and can’t figure out where they’re coming from. The most common varieties we see are the little black ant and odorous house ants.
- Fire Ants: These guys form piles in your backyard and large networks of tunnels leading from one ant mound to another. They’re especially problematic because their mounds are often stepped on by children and elderly individuals. Their bites are painful and once they’re on you, they’re hard to get off.
- Carpenter Ants: Carpenter ants can sometimes be mistaken for termites because they like to live in fallen trees, stumps, and woodpiles near homes. They also like to make their way into your home and chew through wood similar to termites. When you have carpenter ants, it’s a problem that can’t be ignored. Their colonies can become large in number and they can cause serious structural damage to your home.
Ants are a problem that requires professional intervention to effectively handle the issue. They’re hard to treat on your own because they work in large numbers, communicate through pheromones, and like to stay out of sight as much as possible. Combine that with the fact that they’re willing to travel long distances in search of food and it can become very difficult to find their underground nests. Professional ant control is the best solution if you’re experiencing problems with ants at any time of year.
