Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are fairly large, ranging in size from a quarter to three-eights of an inch. They have a great sense for food, which is why they tend to enter homes in search of exposed meals. What makes these ants especially difficult to get rid of is their long lifespan and ability to place their nests in hidden areas. Most can live up to 7 years, with the queen living up to 25 years, during which their colony will rapidly grow in size. These two factors lead to infestations that are difficult to manage, which is why you need the professional team at Halt Pest Control.

Small Ants Can Lead to Big Problems

Measuring at just one-eighth of an inch, pavement ants may be tiny, but they can cause a multitude of problems. They get their name in part because they are commonly found on pavement, such as sidewalks and driveways. These ants are notorious for traveling long distances in search of food, often creating a continuous path from their nest into a home.

Some tips on preventing ants from entering your home include:

  • Fix gaps in your home with a silicone-based caulk
  • Regularly dispose of garbage in and around your home
  • Keep counters and floors free of crumbs and food residue
