You are likely trying to find out exactly where or how the ants have got inside your house, however ants don’t require a very big entry point to get inside your home. Any tiny fractures or holes throughout the home are easy entry points for an ant. Once inside they go in search of oily or sweet foods which are usually in pantries or kitchens.
Ants can create a colony just about anywhere in a home and are often where you cannot easily find them.
Ants colonies are typically large, consisting of up to 500,000 individuals. If ants feel threatened they can quickly move the colony to a safer location. Worker ants can live as long as 7 years while queen ants can live up to 15 years.
Ants create chemical trails behind them wherever they go. When an ant finds a food source they follow their trail back to the colony and signal other ants to follow their trail to the food source. This is why you will find ants travelling in a line going to food.
do they work?
Many people will usually first attempt to get rid of ants themselves using retail solutions or some other DIY technique. Unfortunately, these almost never work, eliminating singular ants but not targeting the full colony still hidden close by. Certain products will only work to kill certain types of ants as well.
The sooner you act, the quicker you can have an insect-free property.
