Species of Ants in Arkansas
Ants are a problem everyone has had to deal with at one time or another. They often find their way inside, looking for water and food by scurrying across your kitchen counter. They may also be driven in by a sudden change in the weather, looking for shelter. Generally speaking, if you are finding an ant infestation in your home, this means there is a colony nearby. In some cases, the ant colony may even be under your house or in your walls.
The most common species of ants you may find in Tulsa include:
- Argentine ants
- Carpenter ants
- Fire ants
- Odorous house ants
- Pavement ants
- Pharaoh ants
Odorous house ants are the most common ant species you will find in your home. They are easily identifiable by the bad-smelling secretion they release when threatened or when crushed. They are drawn to sugary foods, and their nests can be found both inside and out. They are a tenacious species of ant and can be extremely difficult to remove.
Carpenter ants are another prevalent species of ant in Arkansas, and they are often mistaken for termites. While they tend to prefer nesting in damp or decomposing wood and logs outside, they have been known to take up residence in homes. They can be particularly damaging to your home's structure.
Signs You Have an Ant Infestation
As mentioned above, there are multiple species of ants that are attracted to different things and can do different kinds of damage to your home or food supply. Therefore, it's important to be informed of the signs you're dealing with an ant infestation so you can call us for ant control in Tulsa before the damage is done.
Six common signs of an ant infestation include:
- You see ants crawling all over left out food or pet food
- You notice a colony in your yard, even if it's only a few ants
- You hear rustling noises in your walls
- You knock on once solid wood walls and they now sound hollow
- You see a pile of wood shavings when you're vacuuming or sweeping the floors near your walls
- You see ants near damp areas in your home, specifically in your bathroom or kitchen
One of the unfortunate things about ant infestations is that even if you only see one or two crawling around your home, it usually means that there are many more nearby in the colony. This is why you should contact us at the first sighting of one so we can quickly get the infestation under control.
Protecting Your Home from Ants
There are a few steps you can take to keep your home ant-free. It is recommended that you keep your home clear of debris and that you clean up food waste and garbage quickly. Because many species of ants are attracted to sweet things, keeping your sugary foods, baking supplies, and other foods in airtight containers can help you prevent ants from coming inside.
Ants are very industrious and can enter your home through:
- Cracks in your foundation
- Poorly sealed doors and windows
- Holes around wire and plumbing entrances
- Pipes and drains
- Branches and plants that overhang your property
Ants often require continued pest control treatment to eradicate their problem. After your initial treatment, our Tulsa ant specialists will outline a plan for continued ant control.
