Where has all the sugar gone? Crawling Insects: Ants

One of the most common types of insect invasions in residential homes is by those pesky little things called formicidaes, also known as ants. Although there are thousands of different ant species, there are relatively few that are commonly seen as pests, in fact there are only four types of ants consistently seen throughout homes that cause nuisances for the residents living there. They are: pavement ants, citronella ants, pharaoh ants and flying ants. All range in size and color and tend not to cause structural damages to houses, only providing an annoyance to the current resident. In addition, all are very hard to control once a swarm of ants decides to nest in or near a home; the flying ants causing the most trouble by threatening with the possibility of bites which may cause allergic reactions or painful discomfort.

The most common signs of an ant infestation is the presence of numerous ants in an area which indicates a possible nesting, frass accumulating in piles, and trails of ants leading in a particular and orderly direction.
