What Are They & How To Identify
Ants have distinctly elbowed antennae, with segments. The segments of the abdomen are attached to the thorax. The ants have a thin-wasted appearance called the abdominal pedicel. The pedicel may have one or two sections. These sections are enlarged and vary in shape from a flattened plate-like shape to a slight hump.
Ants may look harmless, but they are one of the most common nuisance pests in Wisconsin. They are active indoors and in natural areas. Infestations can quickly grow out of control as the colony matures. Ant colonies can create all kinds of problems for homeowners and businesses. Some ants nest in electrical boxes and air conditioners, and may leave pheromone trails that attract others.
How To Tell If You Have Ants
Food Is Overran By Ants: The easiest way to see if you have ants is to look at any food that you have left out. While you should always cover your food, you may forget to if you have never had an ant infestation. If ants are present, they will quickly sniff out the leftover food and start to carry it away.
Nearby Colony: Take a walk around your yard. If you notice an ant colony anywhere in your yard, you are going to have a problem. Ants will travel long distances to look for food, so walking across your yard to the kitchen is not a problem.
Listen To The Walls: For carpenter ant infestations, you should start by listening to your walls. Carpenter ants are primarily active at night, so you may hear rustling noises as they build their nests.
How To Prevent Getting Ants
Eliminate Water Sources: Reducing moisture and standing water around your home can help prevent ants. Repair leaky pipes, and routinely check under sinks for areas of moisture. Consider using a dehumidifier in damp basements, crawl spaces or attics.
Eliminate Food Sources: Wipe down counters and sweep floors regularly to eliminate crumbs and residue from spills. Store food in sealed containers, and keep ripe fruit in the refrigerator. Wipe down jars, especially any containing honey, syrup, or other sweets.
Eliminate Access Points: Trees and bushes should be trimmed away from the home, as branches can provide highways indoors for ants. Seal any cracks and crevices on the outside of the home with silicone caulk, paying special attention to areas where utility pipes enter.
