Ant Control in Polk County

While they’re small insects, ants can be a big nuisance if they manage to get inside your Polk County home or business.

4 Common Species of Ants in Polk County

While Florida is home to several species of ants, the common types of ants on your Polk County property include:

  1. Florida carpenter ants
  2. Red fire ants
  3. Bigheaded ants
  4. Rover ants

The Threat of Invasive Ants

Ants may seem like a minor nuisance, but they can be a bigger problem than you think. Ants are known to cause:

  • Structural Damage –Carpenter ants can chew up the wood in your home. This can be especially dangerous if they tunnel through support beams.
  • Food Contamination – Ants seek out kitchen areas in search of accessible moisture and food sources. They contaminate food by leaving dirt where they walk.
  • Painful Bites – Fire ant bites can cause a severe reaction in those with allergies. Side effects can range from swelling and dizziness to trouble breathing and anaphylactic shock.

Ineffective Ant Control Methods

While there are several store-bought and at-home remedies to get rid of ants, they do not offer a permanent solution. Ants can set up satellite colonies; therefore, relying on an ant bomb to get rid of a single anthill will not work. The best way to fully eradicate an ant infestation is by consulting with a pest control expert.
