Infestation Identification

Three types of ants that can be causing an infestation to your home is the Allegheny Mound Ant, Carpenter Ant and Pharaoh Ant. The colony of the Allegheny Mound Ants become active in the spring. Foraging for food begins and they hibernate in the tunnelways of a mound below the soil surface. Workers attack and dismember other insects that the ants can overcome.

Most Carpenter Ants establish their first nests in decaying wood and later expand into solid wood.  These ants enter buildings around door and window frames, eaves, plumbing and utility lines and tree branches that come in contact with the building. The small Pharaoh Ant feeds generally on animal or vegetable food, dead insects, small animals, open wounds, shed human skin on bedding, sucrose and IV solutions, sweets and fats.

The Pharaoh Ant typically nests indoors inside electrical conduits, in linen closets, in sterile surgical packets, under flowerpots, within walls of buildings and near water sources.
