Ant Control in Norton

Ants are a common household pest in Norton and throughout Yuma County. They can be a nuisance, but most species do not transmit disease to humans or pets. However, they can contaminate food and bite people who disturb them. They can also damage wood structures and electrical wiring, leading to costly repairs. If you have ants in your home or business, take steps to control the problem and keep it from returning in the future.

Common Ant Species in Arizona

There are many different species of ants that can invade your home or business. Some of the most common in our local area include:

  • Fire ants: This species is red or black and has a distinctive stinger and aggressive temperament. They are most common in open areas in yards.
  • Pharaoh ants: These small yellow-brown colored ants are attracted to food sources and can establish large colonies quickly.
  • Carpenter ants: So named because they build their nests in wooden structures, carpenter ants can be responsible for thousands of dollars in structural damage in homes and commercial buildings.
  • Odorous house ants: This is a small, dark-colored species of ant releases an unpleasant smell when they have been crushed. They are known for contaminating food sources.
  • Pavement ants: As their name suggests, pavement ant nests are typically found under concrete structures, like driveways, foundations, and sidewalks. They will, however, move indoors in search of food.
  • Argentine ants: This invasive species is brown in color and will form huge colonies that are hard to get rid of.

How to Prevent Ants

You may notice an increase in ants around your property during the summer months as ants move indoors in search of water. You may also notice an increase of ants during the autumnal months when food sources become scarce.

No matter the time of the year, there are steps you can take to prevent an infestation and keep it from returning in the future. These proactive measures include:

  • Keep your property clean by picking up food and crumbs and cleaning debris
  • Do not leave food out or dishes in the sink or dishwasher
  • Repair any leaky faucets or pipes
  • Repair any cracks or crevices around windows and doors
  • Do not leave uncovered pet food out
  • Do not leave trash cans or recycling bins open or uncovered

Making your property less attractive to ants is the first step in making sure they do not invade in the first place. If, however, you do notice an ant problem, our team at Yuma Pest & Termite Systems can provide a comprehensive solution to remove ants from your property and create a barrier that will prevent them from coming back.
