4. They Spoil Food Supplies
NYC Pest Control officials often receive complaints about ants spoiling the food supplies stored in a facility. This occurs because ants go everywhere in search of food, which leads them to the facility’s food supply. If the ants come in contact with food containers and manage to chew through the protective packaging, the food has to be thrown out.
5. They Can Get Through The Tiniest Cracks
Because of their small size and the fact that they can stick to virtually any surface, ants can enter your facility through the smallest opening. Even if you take the most careful measures, all it takes is an opening no more than a millimeter or so wide for ants to begin their invasion.
6. They Leave Trails That Attract More Ants
Ants secrete a hormone that acts as a signal for other ants, and allows them to follow the first ant’s path into the facility. This means you don’t just have to worry about one ant colony, but rather any ant that picks up the scent can arrive with a new colony in tow.
For all these reasons, having an ant infestation is a serious matter that needs to be eradicated immediately. Call Stern Environmental and we will provide you with the best professionals in the NYC Pest Control business to take your ant problem off your hands today!
