One lesson we’ve learned from our experience as a NYC Pest Control company is that significant destruction of your home’s or facility’s structure is often caused by the tiniest pests in the insect kingdom.
Ants are widely acknowledged to be the most common household pests in the NYC Pest Control region. There are six reasons why they are causing so much trouble for property owners:
1. They’re Always Found In Large Numbers
Ants are social insects, and they are always found living in colonies which can host many thousands of members. Damage is caused not merely by a single ant, but by an entire colony working together to forage for food and defend its territory against rival colonies.
2. They Burrow Inside Every Space
Ants are incredibly industrious creatures, and will go over every inch of your home or facility in their never-ending quest for food and shelter. The result of this relentless quest takes the shape of hollowed-out walls within the structure. In addition to the obvious impact to the property’s structural integrity, having people and ants in close proximity inevitably leads to the annoyance factor and stings.
3. They Can Pose Serious Health Hazards
Ant stings are painful and, for those with allergies, can seriously affect your health. If ant stings cause an allergic reaction, then you could end up in the hospital or in rare cases even die.
