Ants

Are ants a seasonal nuisance?
Yes and no. Ants are most active in warmer weather. But, in Louisiana, our up and down temperatures can cause them to become active in even what is considered the Winter months.

Are there different species of ants?
Yes, and each one is a pest. Among the most common in our area are the hard-to-miss and painful Imported Red Fire Ants, who build their hills in the lawn. Then, there’s the tiny Pharaoh Ant, which is often even hard to see crawling along light collared cabinets and counters. But, one of the most concerning is the wood-destroying Carpenter Ant.

Where do ants reside?
It depends on the species. Fire ants nest in the soil, excavating tunnels to move from place to place. They build mounds above the ground that seem to pop up overnight, and those mounds can house literally hundreds of thousands of the painful insects. Carpenter ants prefer dead wood, such the lumber used to build homes. They especially like wood that has been damaged by water or other insects.

What causes Carpenter ants to infest your home?
They look for access, such as trees and shrubs left overhanging or touching the house or wood piles or other debris left too close to your home’s foundation. Even certain aspects of your home’s design and landscaping can play a part.

How can you tell if you have Carpenter ants?
Carpenter ants do not actually feed on wood; they simply damage the material to build a nesting site. A common sign of infestation is the presence of wood shavings being kicked out of the area they are damaging. But, once established, their numbers can expand quickly, even though you may not be seeing huge numbers of them inside the house.

What can you do if you find signs of an ant infestation?
Many species of ants, such as the fire ants in your yard or even house ants on your kitchen counter, can be successfully battled by the DIY’er. But, when it comes to getting rid of Carpenter Ants, this is a job best left to the professional. Proper identification and treatment can be difficult without years of experience.

Why risk serious damage to your home or office, or even painful injury to yourself or family? If you suspect you have an infestation of ants of any species, there’s a quick and easy solution to the problem.

When you find a mound in your yard, it’s important that you take care of the problem as soon as possible, especially if you enjoy the outdoors in the warmer months.

After that, you can use your yard as you normally would.

What are fire ants?

Fire ants are abundant in our area. They breed quickly, mate six to eight times a year, and can spread colonies quickly throughout the surrounding area.

In addition, fire ants can be dangerous because of the following:
• Fire ants commonly infest air conditioners and electric boxes
• Fire ants can chew through wires and clothes
• Fire ants will eat almost anything, including your family’s food
• Fire ant stings are very painful and can cause a serious allergic reaction
