Are ants dangerous?

No matter what type of ant you’re dealing with, many potential problems can result from an ant infestation. Here are some of the major dangers to keep in mind:

  • Structural damage – Ants threaten the construction of your property, infesting building materials like wood and foam insulation. They also chew on electrical cables, which risks fire.
  • Bites – Some ants bite and inject venom into your body, which can lead to inflamed skin, cramps, headaches, and other adverse health effects.
  • Contracting diseases – Ants travel in unsanitary areas like garbage and decaying matter, spreading germs and diseases around the home, leaving you and your loved ones vulnerable to diseases like E. coli, streptococcus, salmonella, staphylococcus, shigella, and other bacterial infections.  

While some species are more dangerous and destructive than others, one thing that they all have in common is the fact that they’re certainly not welcome in our homes and businesses, and you should avoid an infestation at all costs.

Why do I have an ant problem?

Ants gravitate to our properties for several reasons. Common attractants include access to sources of food, water, and shelter. Here are some popular ant attractants that you should eliminate from your property to reduce your exposure to an infestation:

  • Damp wood sources
  • Dirty kitchen countertops
  • Excess moisture around the property
  • Leaky pipes and faucets
  • Pet food
  • Readily available food sources
  • Sources of standing water
  • Sugary substances and spills
  • Improper trash storage

Where will I find ants?

Ants are found in areas that provide food and water sources such as kitchens and bathrooms. Being aware of common entry points and looking out for any conducive conditions around your property will also help your ant prevention efforts

Where do they enter in the first place? Here are some points of entry through which ants can gain access to our homes and other buildings:

  • Cracks in walls and floors
  • Doors and door sweeps
  • Foundation gaps
  • Inside the floor
  • Near baseboards along the floor
  • Unsealed exterior holes
  • Utility and plumbing lines
