As the weather heats up and the humidity rears its ugly face here in Minnesota, so do those pesky ants in our homes. Ants are easily the worst pests of all. If you have an ant problem, it’s likely they are everywhere. There’s really no such thing as “one or two ants.” Nope. Ant colonies in Minnesota can be in the 300,000-500,000 range. So, when you begin to see those ants trickle into your home, it’s time to call the professionals. At EcoTech, we won’t just exterminate the small amount that you can see. We will take care of your entire ant problem.
When you begin to see ants in your home, it’s likely the “scout” ants looking for something to eat and bring back to their colony. In general, ants are attracted to sweet or greasy foods and water. Their superhuman strength allows them to carry between 10 to 50 times their own body weight. Thus, making them great foragers. So, as they find their meals, more and more of them begin to appear. Even if you were to kill all of the ants that you saw with your own eyes, they would just send more right back at you. In fact, a study from Harvard and Florida State Universities suggest that ants have been around as far back as when dinosaurs ruled the earth, over 130 million years ago! To say that they are natural survivors and extremely hard to defeat, would be 100% accurate.
