As the weather heats up, ant activity will be on the rise in your Louisville home. This is, in part, due to the temperatures, but there are some other factors to sconsider. People will be spending more time outdoors enjoying the great weather with family and friends. There will be more picnics, barbecues, and parties taking place, all of which may draw ants to your home in large numbers. Inevitably, they will find a way to get inside your home.

Why Ants Get Inside and the Problems They Cause 

While ants mostly nest outdoors, they do find their way inside our homes when they go out foraging for food. They find crumbs and sticky residue on countertops, in pantries and kitchens, and inside garbage cans.

As for the problems ants cause, they can spread harmful bacteria that may pose health risks to you and your family. Carpenter ants can cause damage to your home by excavating tunnels through furniture, support beams, and other wood items located throughout your home. There are some varieties of ant that can cause odors in your home, and the rest of them are simply a terrible nuisance.

As you prepare for ant season, take into consideration the different varieties of ants that require different types of treatment for elimination and control. A few of the most common ants are:

  • Pavement ants.

  • Odorous house ants. 

  • Carpenter ants.
