Ant Pest Control
Ant Control Is A Must Have!
Having an ant control expert in your contacts is an absolute necessity here in this area of Florida. Staying on top of the latest in ant control techniques is essential at Rodent Solutions. The warm, humid weather allows many different types of insects to thrive, including ants. Ants are particularly problematic as their social nature causes them to live together in large groups and invade any property, residential or commercial, that provides them with sources of food and shelter.
Despite ants looking fairly similar, many species of ants in the Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton, Sarasota, and Parrish, Florida areas come with unique behaviors and nesting habits. To properly control and exterminate ants, they must first be correctly identified to determine the proper extermination methods. If ants are in your home or business, it’s best to work with an ant control professional, like the experts at Rodent Solutions, to eliminate them and prevent the ants from returning.
Some of the most problematic ants Floridians come across regularly include:
Are Ants Dangerous?
Yes! Ants Are Dangerous!
Despite being a common pest, never ignore the presence of ants. Ants can be dangerous to both people and property.
Fire ants, for example, are known for their painful sting and can cause severe allergic reactions in some individuals. Symptoms of fire ant stings include swelling, itching, and a burning sensation at the sting site. In some cases, individuals may experience anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening. Between .6 & 16% of people stung by fire ants have this severe, whole-body reaction.
Carpenter ants cause damage to the structures of homes and other buildings by nesting within their structural wood. Pharaoh ants are known to carry and transmit bacteria such as Salmonella and Streptococcus. Fire ants do not usually nest inside structures, but they do damage electrical equipment.
To protect your family and home from ants, be proactive and put a year-round pest control program in place to take care of a current infestation and stop them from returning in the future. Pest control companies with a diligent staff of ant exterminators can control ants once they accurately identify the ant and select the proper products to exterminate the ants.

Why Do I Have an Ant Infestation?
Many species become problematic when properties provide them with areas of moisture. Yards with damp mulch, fallen trees, dense shrubbery, and low-lying areas trap rainwater and provide ants with suitable nesting areas. Moisture that builds up in our homes behind walls and under floors from leaky pipes also attracts ants.
When ants discover a food source to feed their colony, they return to the area. They also sometimes create satellite nests, both indoors or outdoors, near new food sources to expand their colony. Ants make pheromone trails that provide a map to help the worker ants find a way back and forth from the food source to their nest.
