There are fire ants, carpenter ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants, field ants, and the list goes on. Ants come in all different shapes and sizes and can make their way into your home through even the tiniest of cracks, and when one ant comes, there are usually more. As the song goes, “the ants go marching one by one”, and this is because of the scent trails they leave behind to tell others where the food is.
Traps may work to kill the individual ants, but a full extermination is necessary to get rid of the source of the ants and the other 500,000 members of their colony.
Red or black medium-sized fire ants have poisonous bites. You will experience a long-lasting stinging and burning sensation after being bitten by these ants. These pests will attack anything that approaches them and construct mounds in the dirt and soil outside. Fire ants can still cause significant annoyance and disrupt daily activities even though only 1% of the population is fatally allergic to their bites.
Many times carpenter ants are confused with termites. However, these ants don’t consume the wood like termites. Instead, they colonize it and disperse their satellite colonies throughout your house. These creatures can bite when handled and are typically black and red in color. They measure about 1/4th of inch long.
