Pest Identification

Pests creeping around your property are extremely annoying, and they can pose serious health, business, financial and structural issues to your property. Many different insects and invertebrates can be pests at one time or another. However, in our day-to-day life we will find the same ones appearing regularly. It is important to be able to indentify them for proper control.

Ants

Basic Pest

Ants are social insects forming colonies operating as a unified entity, working together to support the colony. Ant colonies consist of Queens who are the reproductive function of the colony and can be distinguished as the largest ant in the colony; female sterile workers, who gather food, build tunnels, and defend the colony; and males whose sole purpose is to mate with the queens. Ants can enter through the tiniest cracks, seeking food and water, most commonly in kitchens and storeroom areas.

Ants are found all over the world, from the hottest deserts to the lush green rainforests. We can find them in our backyards, in our homes, and even in our workplaces. Ants live in colonies and a single colony may have over a million ants. There are several different types of ants. Some of the better-known varieties are the army ants, driver ants, honeypot ants, weaver ants, leafcutter ants, fire ants, silver ants, and bulldog ants. All ant colonies are comprised of three types of ants, namely the worker ants, the soldier ants, and the single queen ant..

Danger

Ants can cause contamination to food products and sterile areas. Ant infestations cause aesthetical concerns and damage to and around properties.
