Ant is a collective term that is used to describe several species of insects. In St. John’s, we see thief ants, black carpenter ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants, odorous house ants, Argentine ants, and many other species. No matter which species of ant enters your home or office – they usually end up causing nuisance and discomfort. In case of severe infestations, your place may turn inhabitable! So, as soon as you notice the first signs of infestation, we suggest you call the pest control experts at Cabot Pest Control right away!
Ants are attracted by the presence of food, especially sweets, so they usually end up around the sugary items. However, other ingredients such as oil and grease, and other edible items can also trigger their entry. Apart from contaminating your eatables, they may also further deepen the cracks in the walls and foundation. Ant bites cause skin inflammation, itching, and in extreme scenarios, cramps and headaches.
