When do ants indoors become a problem? Some people will spot an ant or two marching along their floor or countertop and think nothing of it. But in truth, their presence could mean you're living with an infestation.

Without professional ant pest control, you'll face an uphill battle to rid your Tampa home of ants. But in this post, we'll give you some tips to keep ants out of your home. And remember, when you need Tampa pest control services, you can always count on EcoSmart Pest Solutions.

The Role Ants Play In Our Ecosystem

With so many ants walking around (an estimated 20 quadrillion), do you think they play an essential role in the ecosystem? Yes, they do. Through their extensive tunneling, ants help aerate the soil, helping plants get the nutrients they need to grow.

By aiding the plants, the work of the humble ant helps support life on our planet. Of course, they aren't so helpful when a colony moves into your living space. Calling our commercial ant control EcoSmart Pest Solutions specialists as soon as you suspect these bugs have moved into your home is the best way to prevent them from spreading.

What Problems Can Ants Create In My Home?

In most cases, ants are a nuisance, stinging or biting when they feel threatened. However, not all of these bugs are harmlessly irritating. Some, like the fire ant, are venomous. A fire ant sting can cause an allergic reaction and, while rare, can be fatal. 

As for what damage they can do to your house, look no further than the carpenter ant. Colonies will chew through wood to consume cellulose and build nests. When left unchecked, they can cause thousands of dollars worth of structural damage to a Tampa home. 

But knowing the damage an infestation can cause requires accurate identification. And while some species are easy to tell apart, others are incredibly similar. But you can always leave it up to our ant pest control experts at EcoSmart Pest Solutions to remove any doubt.

How Can I Naturally Keep Ants Out Of My House?

Professional ant control services are the best way to clear your home of infestation. But while you should never hesitate to call us with your pest concerns, remember that you can do a lot to protect your property from these pests. Here are just a few ant prevention tips:

  • Make sure to seal your food correctly: Crumbs, leftovers, and even open packages can lure ants indoors looking for a food source. 
  • Clean up around your yard: Leaving yard debris around provides ants with nesting opportunities.
  • Did some food spill out as you emptied the trash?: Or maybe you discarded the remains of a snack on your lawn as you headed indoors, knowing it would eventually break down. No matter how it gets there, food left outdoors tells ants that there's more where that came from, and they'll search until they find it.
  • Block possible entryways: Ants will sneak in through cracks and holes around door and window frames. 

When you partner with us at EcoSmart Pest Solutions for ant control solutions, our technicians will help you identify these and other potential entry points throughout the treatment plan. We'll help eliminate these factors and protect your home and family.
