Ant Source Inspection
Inspecting for the source of an ant infestation is crucial in determining how and why they are invading your home. While they are a common pest, it’s important to be able to identify ants as well as the type of infestation. Ants have distinctly elbowed antennae with segments of the abdomen that are attached to the thorax, and they have a thin-wasted appearance called the abdominal pedicel. Different types include argentine, carpenter, field, pavement, thief, odorous house and pharaoh ants.
When inspecting for ants inside, the source is often located along carpet edges, doors, windows and all areas of the kitchen. Following a trail of ants after they have reached a food source will potentially lead you directly to their nest. Carpenter ants are nocturnal, so inspecting at night is more effective, and they can be found emerging from damaged wood inside the house or outside in woodpiles, rotted or water-damaged wood or in tree stumps. Check around the foundation walls of your house, near areas of mulch or vegetation, especially near patios or walls, and under items on the ground.

Ant prevention is crucial to maintaining a pest-free home and environment, even after you’ve received treatment for an infestation. Generally, ants invade your home in search of food, so keeping a clean space and avoiding leaving out food or crumbs in your kitchen and living areas will help to prevent future infestations. Additional prevention tactics include caulking and sealing cracks and crevices to prevent ants from entering your home.
