Ants live across California so you’re likely going to find them around your Temecula home. Although they’re not dangerous, they can create various issues for homeowners. These pests will infest your food and create a nuisance for your loved ones. Suffice to say, it is wise to take steps to eliminate them promptly. Don’t delay because ants are stubborn pests that won’t leave on their own. There are over 12,000 species with some suggesting there could be 14,000 or more species.
Ants are easy to spot thanks to their unique appearance. They have a narrow waist that looks like it has been pinched. They also have elbowed antennas. The problem with ants is that they’re social. Whether they’re caring for the queen, building new tunnels, or foraging for food, they’re going to work as a team. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to keep them away from your residence. Once they’ve invaded, getting rid of them will prove to be very hard.
Reasons For Ants
Once you’ve learned more about what attracts ants, you’ll have a better idea of how to get rid of them. Typically, most ants are going to live in underground nests outside of the home. A single nest may contain tens of thousands of ants. While they prefer staying outside, they will enter your home when scouring for food. Since they’re smart and small, they can find numerous entries into your residence. They will squeeze through small holes around windows, doors, and elsewhere.
They will also find openings around plumbing pipes and wires. Sealing these gaps can help keep them out, but there is no guarantee that you won’t find a few in your home.
Ants can be very annoying because they’ll crawl on your countertops, shelves, and food. You’re likely worried that these pests are going to spread disease. The good news is that they will not. Even if they crawl through your food, you’re not going to get sick. Ants do not carry disease. They will contaminate food products so it is still a good idea to replace the food in question.
