While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything they can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.
Some ants create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Fox has the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively provide ant control in North Shore.
Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp sting. Fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants are among those that live in the United States.
Carpenter ants. Carpenter ants can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.
Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting as well as a bite. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings.
The main difference is the size. While most ants are about 1/8 inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to 1/2 inch, about 4 times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.
