Ants are the most common and determined pests found in and around buildings. They’ll can your life miserable. They can ruin your house’s foundation, or they might attack you if they feel threatened.
Outside ants, like fire ants or crazy ants, will bite relentlessly if you disturb their nest. Argentine ants have been known to cause crop damage as they tend to their stable of aphids. Their colonies have multiple queens, so they are very hard to eradicate.
Inside ants can damage the wooden portions of your home by burrowing into the wood to set up a nest. Carpenter ants are very large. It doesn’t take them long to ruin window frames and wooden trim.
Sugar ants invade your home and establish colonies behind the walls and in other unseen recesses. Scouts search your home for spills and crumbs of sugary foods. They put down a trail of pheromones to guide other ants to their sugary discoveries. If you see a long line of ants heading for a tiny piece of cookie, they’re sugar ants.

While there are poisons and other treatments you could buy yourself, they don’t get the queen and her colony. They only get a small portion. Soon the ants will be back.
