Brentwood Ant Controlants-534

Ants are a problem in the South throughout much of the year, especially when the weather is warm. The different ant species found in Tennessee cause a variety of issues when they invade homes and offices. Learning more about the most troublesome species in the state will help you to avoid these issues.

Fire Ants

Red imported fire ants were originally found only in South America, but they entered the United States through the port of Mobile, Alabama, in the 1930s. Since then, their mounds have become a common sight throughout the South. Fire ants are much more aggressive than most species, and their bites leaves painful bumps on the skin.

Carpenter Ants

Like termites, carpenter ants damage houses and other buildings by gnawing on wooden components with their saw-like mandibles. They are a relatively large species, and adults can grow to be an inch long. The best way to detect a carpenter ant infestation is to keep an eye out for the sawdust-like material that they produce near their nesting areas.

Odorous House Ants

Odorous house ants typically enter homes in search of food, and they will eat almost anything containing sugar. They do not sting or bite, but they can give people food poisoning by contaminating food with bacteria such as salmonella. They pick up this bacteria when they crawl on filthy surfaces such as bathroom floors and kitchen counters.
