Ants, like all insects, have jointed legs, three body parts (the head, thorax and abdomen), a pair of antennae, and a hard exoskeleton. The exoskeleton is made up of a material that is very similar to our fingernails. Ants range in color from yellow to brown to red to black.

The life cycle of the ant consists of four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Fertilized eggs produce female ants (queens, workers, or soldiers); unfertilized eggs produce male ants.

Ants Prevention

There are some types of ants that actually establish a nest inside your home instead of merely entering to forage for food and returning outdoors. Ants in this category may be present year round, although they will be more active in the warmer months. Ant species that may live in seattle homes include crazy ants, odorous house ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants, thief ants, and carpenter ants. All of these ants may infest food products. Spraying a residual insecticide to control foraging workers may provide only short-term control. Even when over 99 percent of foraging workers are killed by insecticide sprays, the colony may rebuild to its original numbers. Location and total destruction of the nest is the most direct way to eliminate this ant infestation.

Ants that live outside will travel inside the home to search for food. Some species may ultimately reside in houses, discussed later in this fact sheet. To prevent both of these scenarios, follow these procedures:

Ants Extermination

Ants are one of the most common household pests. Without proper prevention and protection, ant populations will increase rapidly. Ants make their nests in many different places inside a home, including under roofs, in doors, and even in foam insulation. Ants do this by chewing wood and carving out tunnels. Over time, this can cause significant damage to the home. The longer an ant colony problem goes untreated, the more damage can occur. In addition to any structural damage, ants are also attracted to many foods commonly found in kitchens and pantries. Ants may often make a meal of all types of sweets or foods with proteins, including honey, syrup, and meats. As such, ant control is a necessity!
