For some of us that would be good news, but note the spelling above. Your mom’s sister may be visiting but so are thousands of ANTS that invade the homes of Chicagoland. Ant activity indoors may actually decrease in winter, but observing ant swarmers or foragers during the cold weather months may indicate that an ant colony exists somewhere inside your home.
Here are some types that are looking for food and shelter –
1. Carpenter ants…known to feed on kitchen scraps
2. The odorous house ant…it is called that because of an unpleasant odor when it’s crushed
3. Pavement ants…generally slower moving
4. The Pharaoh ant…found sometimes where there are many people. They feed on blood!
Ants, ants, and more ants…they will only multiply unless they are stopped immediately. To do that, call A Complete Pest Solution serving Chicagoland’s pest extermination needs for decades.
