Do you have ants as your neighbor? This is probably the last thing you ever want to experience in your life. While some ant species are known to cause allergic reactions with their painful stings, others are known to carry bacteria and viruses, and there are also the ones that leave damaging impact on a property. Ants come in various shapes and sizes, and in thousands of species with different characteristics and impact. Ant control is a difficult task without an adequate knowledge of ant behavior.
These insects may nest in and around your home and can invade walls and lawns, giving you a tough time in controlling their growing population. They follow each other by leaving behind a chemical trail that acts as a pheromone for others. An ant colony can penetrate even through the smallest openings to enter your house and find their way into your kitchen. Most do-it-yourself techniques often fail as they target these insects rather than their nests.
