Do you have a Ant Problem in Manhattan NY?
There so many different types of ant species all over the world and they come in different sizes. Ants can have millions of babies. You can identify ants simply by looking out for three body regions; head, thorax and abdomen. They don't have ears instead, they use their sense of touch through their feet for vibrations on the ground. Here are different types of ants such as Argentine ants, Carpenter ants, Odorous House ants, Pavement ants, and Red Imported Fire ants
Argentine ants are dark brown o black in color and give off a musty odor when crushed. Their colonies are located wet areas where there is a food source. These colonies can multiply like you won't believe it and will fill up an entire area such as your entire garden or backyard. These ants don't technically pose a threat to your health, but they can contaminate your food by leaving poop behind.
Carpenter ants are large ants that like to eat sweet foods. They build their nests in wood and can cause significant damage to your house. Though they do not eat the wood, they use it to create nests anywhere that is wet and moldy like tree stumps, firewood or plants found in your house. They can also damage the wood that keeps your house standing and this damage can be very expensive to fix.
Odorous house ants are tiny brown ants that give off a strong, rotten odor when crushed. They like to eat sweet things. They make their homes in soil, under stones, logs, mulch, debris and other likely places such as walls and cracks on the floor. These ants can also contaminate the food you eat by leaving their poop behind.
Pavement ants are dark brown to black in color and eat almost anything. As the name suggests, they build their nests under cracks in pavements, sidewalks, driveways, and patios. They can also nest in the foundation of the walls in your home.
Red Imported Fire ants (RIFA) are very aggressive ants that can actually hurt you by their stings. You will find them in all types of climate conditions. They eat mainly vegetation. Their nesting can damage plant roots and cause you to lose your crops.
In order to prevent ants, you can make sure to cut down tree branches and plants from your house. At the same time, be sure not to store firewood or any building material next to your home. You can also make sure that there are no cracks or little openings around the bottom of your house.
