Ants can be a real nuisance when they get into your Honolulu home. In some cases, ants can be dangerous, carrying harmful pathogens on their bodies or delivering painful bites and stings. That's why it's essential to take action to get rid of them as soon as possible. As one of the most common invaders of Hawaiian yards and homes, even seeing a single ant may mean you have thousands more hiding in the nest. Please don't waste time or money on store-bought ant sprays; while they may kill a few ants, they won't solve the problem long-term. The best way to get rid of ants in your home is to contact the Honolulu pest control professionals.

The Habits Of Common Ants

Ants are social creatures, and all play a significant role within the colony. They are also extremely physical and can live 20 times their body weight. There are typically three kinds of ants in a colony: The female workers, the queen, and the males. The queen and males have wings, while the workers don't. Ants are attracted to food and water sources, so improper food and trash storage can attract ants. Ants can enter your Honolulu home through cracks around doors and windows, cracks in the foundation, AC units, and even on objects you bring inside. 

Should I Worry If I Have Ants In My House?

Some ants can cause damage to your home and health. Most of the ants in this area are considered nuisance pests. This includes the crazy ant, which is best identified by the erratic movements they make. Fire ants and tropical fire ants are dangerous as they can cause painful stings and bites. Some people have strong allergic reactions to their venom, causing potentially life-threatening illnesses. Pharaoh ants can be dangerous and spread harmful pathogens. In addition, carpenter ants are destructive and can cause damage to your wooden items and structures as they tunnel through wood. 

The main problems that all ants cause are allergic reactions or making you sick, as they get into food sources and contaminate them. Ants can also have significant, sprawling colonies containing thousands of individuals, which means they can spread quickly and be hard to remove. Overall the best way to handle ant problems is to get ant control services from the experts at Able Pest Management. 

What's Attracting Ants Into My Home?

If you see ants in your Honolulu home, you are likely providing them with the resources necessary to survive. Ants are attracted to easy-to-access water, food, and convenient living spaces.

Homes are vulnerable to ant infestations because cake crumbs on the counter or a small spillage are enough to attract ants to your home.
