Serving Families Throughout North Texas

Ants crawling around your home bring health risks and ruin your enjoyment of your personal spaces. Only professional ant control in Lewisville can help you say good riddance to ants on your property permanently.

Identifying Common Ant Species

Ants are an incredibly diverse pest, and there are many different species of ants across the United States that may cause problems with human structures from time to time. In our area, there is a handful of common ant species that are typically seen invading Lewisville homes and causing problems.

The ant species you are most likely to encounter in our area include acrobat, carpenter, fire, odorous house, and rover ants. All of these species may look somewhat similar at a glance, but there are subtle differences you can take note of to help you identify each species.

For instance, fire ants tend to have a reddish-brown color, while carpenter ants are the largest ants you will encounter. Odorous house ants let off a foul smell when killed, rover ants are very small, and acrobat ants tend to have a darker-colored abdomen than the rest of their body.

Ants In The Home Can Create Many Problems

An ant infestation around your home creates many problems, including health issues and the risk of property damage. All ants bite, and these bites may result in mild pain and itching, or they may have more serious effects, such as an allergic reaction. 

Additionally, ants track bacteria and pathogens inside of your property as they scavenge for food and shelter. This creates of risk of illness, primarily illnesses due to contaminated food and surfaces.

It’s also important to note that some ants will invade the wooden structures of your home or make themselves cozy in areas like electrical outlets, an action that creates severe property damage and a risk of costly repairs if the ants aren’t treated promptly.
