Ants Be Gone: Effective Ant Control Solutions For Orange County Homes


If you have ants in your home, you may only see a small fraction of the colony. Usually, ants will live in colonies that contain over 20,000 ants. If you are seeing a handful of ants in your home, it more than likely means that you also have several thousand ants hiding somewhere else in your house. 

At Pacific Shore Pest Control, our experienced Orange County pest control experts have over 14 years of experience in the industry and know how to permanently get ants out of your home. Here is a look at what you should do if you see ants in your home

The Life Cycle Of Ants: How Ant Colonies Develop

Ants live in large colonies. It is not uncommon to find an ant colony that has several thousand ants living together. In order to keep the colony running proficiently, every ant has a specific job that they are tasked with. All ant colonies are separated into three caste systems: workers, reproductives, and queens. 

When a colony starts to reach full capacity, some of the winged reproductive ants will leave the nest to find a mate. They usually live in large groups and will swarm around various areas, which is why many people refer to them as "swarmer ants." When the ants find a mate, the males will die, and the females will become the queen of a new colony. 

Ant Dangers: Understanding The Risks Of An Infestation

Ants in Orange County are scavengers that will crawl through some of the most disgusting areas while looking for their next meal. Many ants will crawl over garbage, feces, and even dead carcasses when trying to find a snack. While crawling through these filthy surfaces, they will pick up a wide range of bacteria, fungi, and other harmful pathogens. These harmful pathogens can get into your food if the ants walk on top of your food or near your food preparation areas. Some illnesses people have been known to get from having an ant infestation in their home include salmonellosis, shigellosis, staph infection, and clostridium. 

Professional Ant Control: Eliminate The Infestation

Ants can hide in almost every crevice and small space of your home. Because they typically live above your ceiling or behind your walls, it can be extremely difficult for the average person to eliminate an ant infestation on their own. If you want an easy and effective way to get rid of ants around your home, you will need to team up with a professional home pest control specialist. An experienced professional will have the tools and the skills to know how to effectively treat ant infestations of all severity levels. 

Ant Prevention Is Key: Effective Tips And Tricks

It is easier to keep ants out of your home than it is to get rid of a severe ant infestation. Some of the things that you can do to prevent ants in your home include:

  1. Clean up spills as soon as possible
  2. Sweep, mop, and vacuum your floors often
  3. Don't leave pet food out
  4. Keep pantry food in a sealed container
