Ant Control Is A Must Have!

The warm, humid weather allows many different types of insects to thrive, including ants.

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.

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.
