What Are Ants?
Ants are six-legged insects that live in colonies. An ant colony consists of approximately 500,000 insects. Each ant colony has a queen that lays millions of eggs during her lifetime.
Ants live in soil mounds built from a mixture of soil and sticks. These ant nests are made in such a way that they can endure harsh weather conditions such as heavy rainfall. They also build nests on the house foundations and cracks on the wall. Ants like to live in moist and cold places.
There are many ant species in Brooklyn. The most common species are carpenter ants, fire ants, and citronella ants.
Ants as Pests
Ants are not known to transmit any disease to humans. They are however food and water contaminants. Ants enter houses in search of food and water. They are capable of entering the house through tiny channels. They mostly invade homes in search of water during the dry season.
Poor waste disposal is one of the predisposing factors of an ant attack. Once a few ants locate food in the house, the carry some to their nest leaving behind an invisible chemical trail that other ants follow. Therefore, poor sanitation encourages ant attack. Most ants love sugary foods. Oily foods and proteins attract some species.
Ants also build nests on the foundations of the house or cracks on the wall. This weakens the house gradually although ants are not known to cause massive structural damage to buildings. As they drill their nests, they unearth soil from the ground, and this makes the house and the surrounding unclean.
Ants also form soil mounds in the garden or around the homestead where they build their nests. This is not harmful but makes your home appear messy.
Some ant species such as the carpenter ant can cause considerable damage to your house. They consume wooden furniture although at a slow pace. Ant bites are also extremely painful. They will bite you when you tamper with them.
