Types of Ants in Greenville
There are over 200 species of ants in South Carolina. Although many species are harmless, no one wants them in the house. Other types of ants become more than a nuisance; in fact, some are downright dangerous when you disturb a nest.
One native species you don’t want in your home is the odorous house ant. This small ant is ⅛" long, brown or black, and smells bad when crushed. These ants are not dangerous to humans or pets, but they can contaminate your food as they forage.
Then, there is the aggressive fire ant. They’re ¼" long and red or brown. If they’re disturbed, they’ll swarm. Fire ants bite and sting! They’re easy to step on in the yard or to run over with a lawnmower, and they’re fast. Fire ant venom can also cause severe reactions in sensitive individuals, like nausea, shock, or chest pains. Make sure to keep your distance!
What Attracts Ants?
Sweet foods, spills and garbage attract ants to your home. They also love pet food bowls. If you have a compost pile, you may end up with fire ant problems in the yard. To decrease your chances of attracting ants, always clean up spills right away and don’t leave pet food out.
Overgrown lawns and shrubs can attract ants, too; keeping shrubbery well-trimmed can make a tremendous difference.
However, because of the nature of ants, even the cleanest, most well-kept home can have ants.
Proactive Long-Term Ant Control
The things you do to make your property look beautiful create the environments they love, too. Mulch provides fertile ground for ants, for example, and putting down mulch is a normal part of taking care of your lawn or landscape.
Ants enter your home by exploiting every hole and crack they find. Keeping your home ant free requires some diligence on your part and a great pest control partner like Croach®. Our ant exterminator service includes a customized plan to rid your property of the ants you have, and a plan to prevent new nests of ants from moving in.
Are Ants Dangerous?
Most American ants aren’t super dangerous because ants don’t carry disease. However, they do bite and sting.
This makes them unpleasant and difficult to live with. We urge you to get rid of them for comfort, but there’s no reason to fear them.
However, fire ants are the exception. They are dangerous, especially if you or someone you live with has a fire ant allergy. Fire ant stings can kill someone with a severe allergy.
If you have fire ants, it’s important to deal with them quickly for the safety of your family and your pets.
How to Get Rid of Ants
Getting rid of ants isn’t easy here in Greenville. Our ants are resilient. Species like fire ants even form giant floating rafts to survive floods in the area. At Croach®, our expert technicians know how to get rid of ants and keep them out.
Over-the-counter traps and sprays won’t take care of them for long. In addition, DIY methods can worsen the problem by scattering ants instead of exterminating them. As a result, one colony can quickly become four more.
It takes ongoing management and commercial-grade insecticides capable of solving an ant problem at the source to get rid of ants for good. In addition, we use treatment that disrupts breeding cycles. Your technician will customize your plan based on the types of ants in your home and on your property.
Ants are Gone Never to Return!
Patrick was very friendly and respectful of my property. He cleaned out all spider webs and treated the lawn. Couldn’t have asked for any better tech. Thank you. P. S. All the ants you treated for on your last visit were gone that night. Never to return.
