What is an Ant?
Ants are among the most common pests found in homes across the U.S. Though small in size, they group together in large colonies that can cause many problems. While there are many different types of ants, all species can be identified by their elbowed antennae and slender waists, which distinguish them from termites.
Ant colonies feature complex social structures with a queen and many workers. Their primary reason for entering homes and causing problems is a hunt for food and water. If they can easily find either in your home, whether it’s easy access to pet food or a leaky pipe, they will keep coming back.
There are several different types of ants you’re likely to encounter in California, including:

Q : How do I know if I have fleas in Los Angeles, CA?
For most ant species, the most obvious sign of ants is when you see large numbers of them making trails or clustering around food or water. Seeing a few ants doesn’t necessarily mean you have an infestation, but they could be scouts searching for food and water that will eventually report back to the colony. Killing the scouts and spraying around your doors and windows will help stop the rest of the colony from coming in, but DIY solutions aren’t always enough.
Carpenter ants are wood-destroying insects similar to termites. Unlike other ant species, the trails they follow are harder to find, and they can cause severe structural damage to your home. If you suspect you may have a carpenter ant infestation, call PURCOR for help so you don’t end up with thousands of dollars in damages.
