What are Ants?
Ants are insects with segmented bodies and large antennae. A variety of ant species live in Ohio. Carpenter ants especially enjoy Columbus, Ohio’s climate, as the average rainfall turns the surrounding forests into a never-ending buffet of damp wood perfect for nests. If you notice these pests, contact Champion Pest & Termite Control ant exterminators to provide treatment, nest removal and pest management service.
Why Are They a Problem?
Although ants are tiny, they can cause huge problems in your Columbus, Ohio house or office without proper control.
Ants live in large colonies, and nests can extend several feet or even yards
underground and spread in every direction. When the first ant finds a food source, it leaves a scent trail for others to follow. Ants will enter through gaps or cracks in exterior walls, where wires or pipes enter from the outside, and even climb down overhanging tree branches or slip under ineffective door and window seals. An infestation in your kitchen creates unsanitary conditions for your family and could mean tossing out contaminated food. If you notice ants, request a quote for ant control and removal services.
Carpenter ants carve tunnels into wood to make nests, which can extend behind multiple walls and rooms as the colony grows. Piles of fine sawdust around baseboards or windowsills can be obvious signs of a carpenter ant infestation. While this type of ant chews its way in as well as entering through cracks or openings, it needs a moist place to do so. If your home has had water damage, you may be at particular risk of an infestation. If you notice ants, request a quote for ant control and removal services.
