"Ants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and smells. That’s right. Smells. The good news is, most ants in our area are just nuisance pests that don’t present any serious threats to our health. They do, however, pose a threat to our comfort and well being."
"Ants. We’ve all seen them, and whether you find them inside or outside your home, it is always helpful to be able to identify which type of ant you are observing. With fall now upon us, several species of pests—including ants—are actively seeking out shelter from the cold."
"As soon as the weather warms up, carpenter ants start becoming active. In early spring or late summer, they take their first mating flights and begin the process of establishing new colonies. You might think that means that, by late summer or early fall, they’ve done their thing and will start to die off. Unfortunately, that’s not the case."
