For home and business owners in Houston, ants are not just a seasonal concern, they are a year round issue. This is because in Houston we have a subtropical climate with a long warm season and a mild cold season. Ants are cold-blooded insects that thrive in these conditions. You may notice more activity from ants during the spring and summer, but cooler weather can lead them to seek shelter indoors. A common misconception is that ants will only invade unclean spaces but this is not the case.
You can maintain a very clean home, have excellent seals on all potential entry points and still experience issues with ants in your home or business. Some ants, like carpenter ants, are more difficult to keep away from your property. This is because carpenter ants nest in dead wood and can get deep within the structure of your space before you notice. Protect your Houston home or business from ants with the help of Armor Pest Control.
Many people believe killing one problematic ant colony on their property will be enough to eliminate their ant issue. Unfortunately, ant removal is not quite that simple. This is because ants emit strong pheromones that act as a trail for other ants to follow them. Additionally, they have something known as satellite colonies, which can be in other yards or homes, that are connected to the one in your space.
