FAQs About Ant Control in Arkansas
Ants in Arkansas typically construct nests in the soil outside of homes. They may come inside looking for food sources, emitting pheromones to alert the colony. Some ants, like carpenter ants, may create nests inside walls by tunneling through wooden structures.
All ant species can bite, but the biting behavior varies. Harvester ants and fire ants, common in Arkansas, may bite to latch onto attackers and deliver a powerful sting. While all ants can bite, only some possess stingers.
It’s a misconception that ant “bites” are actual bites; they often result from ant stings. Fire ants, prevalent in Arkansas, inject venom during stings, causing raised welts similar to mosquito bites. Fire ant stings can sometimes lead to anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction requiring hospitalization.
Ants may suddenly appear due to various factors. They excel at finding open food sources, especially those with sugar. Leaving treats exposed can attract ants rapidly. Additionally, ants may have been present for days or weeks before becoming noticeable. Moisture in crawl spaces, beneath plumbing fixtures, kitchens, or bathrooms can attract ants.
To eliminate ant trails, identify their source or entry point, such as cabinets, baseboards, windows, doors, or plumbing fixtures, and seal these areas with silicone-based caulk. You can also use undiluted vinegar on ant trails or affected areas. Properly sealing and storing food when not in use is crucial. With that said, these are simply DIY methods you can try, but they are not a sure solution to your ant problem. Calling a professional ant exterminator in Arkansas is the best way to keep ants out of your home or business.
While ants don’t directly infect humans with diseases through bites or stings, they can carry and spread pathogens. Arkansas ants, like other ants, may carry Salmonella, posing health threats. Infestations in bathrooms and kitchens can lead ants to pick up germs and transfer them to surfaces.
Ants rest in short intervals throughout each 24-hour period, but not in the same way humans sleep. These pauses, lasting 1-8 minutes, don’t create large periods of inactivity. This means Arkansas ants can be active in homes at any time of the day.
Maintain a clean house in Arkansas to prevent ant invasions. Properly seal and store food, clean dishes promptly, and address spills, especially in moisture-prone areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Regularly check for openings in window and door screens, baseboards, and plumbing fixtures that could allow ants to enter. Regular professional ant control treatments is the best way at keeping pesky ants away.
