Winter is on its way out in Seattle. But little Black ants aren’t going
anywhere. It may be surprising to know that ants are a year round problem.
A homeowner on Seattle’s Capital Hill, discovered some of the little Black
ants in the hallway walls. A few ants can populate into armies of ants in
no time. The homeowner knew this was a little Black ant problem for sure.
A few years ago there had been little Black ants in the bathroom wall. It
was not an option to use a do-it-yourself product to try to get rid of the
ants. Thankful for keeping relevant information the husband called AMPM
Little Black ants find ways to get inside:
The little Black ants are also known as Sugar Ants are hard to see at
times. But don’t underestimate the little pests. Because the ants can and
will find different ways to access the house. A favorite place to
infiltrate are inside the walls. Remember that store spray or products may
be effective to kill a couple of Ants. But definitely not effective for a
full blown ant infestation. Keep in mind that there is a good chance that
infestations may be in more than one area of the home. It’s highly likely
that by the next day the ants will have moved the scent highway to a
different location. Little Black Ants are constantly on the move. There
could be armies of ants creating new scent highways in other areas of the
residence. Black ants can travel up trees located right next to the home.
Excellent way to get inside the house via holes, cracks and crevices.
Branches are used to cross over to the house. The homeowner and family were
stressed out as more and more ants appeared in the home. The owner had
enough and an appointment was confirmed with AMPM Exterminators to squash
this little Black Ant infestation.
How and why a little Black ant infestation:
Many homes can have moisture problems that attracts ants. A helpful hint
is to keep gutters clean. Make sure downspouts are adjusted to direct water
away from the home. Mounds of dirt are perfect havens for little Black ants
and should be kept away from the foundation. Always check for standing
water around the perimeter of the home. Ants are always on the march for
water, food and shelter. Making the Pacific Northwest an ideal for ants due
to rainfall. Look for plumbing and structure leaks to repair. A check for
both perimeter and interior for holes, cracks and crevices is priority.
Sealing and repairs will prevent giving further entry access to the Sugar
ants. Shrubs and plants should be kept under control. Tree branches should
kept pruned back at least 10 feet from the roof. When an Ant bait is used
it will be carried back to the ant colonies to be shared to kill the
colony. It is wise to maintain the perimeter of the structure with a
recurring service to prevent new Black Ant infestation. AMPM Exterminators
would provide further information regarding these types of services.
Neighbors may be sharing the little Black Ant Infestation:
Ever think that neighbors could be dealing with the same type of Black Ant
Infestation. This is a normal question from the AMPM Exterminators
technician. When the perimeter was being investigated there were armies of
black ants seen marching between the homes. Which meant several new scent
trails. The pest eliminators were prepared with the appropriate products in
order to provide a successful extermination. More importantly the
technician had the expertise available to exterminate the Ants in the wall
infestation and other sites outside the home. AMPM Exterminators is a
