About Ants

An average ant’s body is composed with a hard armor called the exoskeleton. Most ants are colored either black or red, and their average length is usually half an inch. Just like other small insects, these creatures have six legs, with each leg having three joints. They are commonly known to have exquisitely large heads and eyes, having a combination of curved antennae and jaws that are able to carry food. Some ants, most likely the females, are able to grow wings. Their primary purpose is to lay as many eggs in their lifetime as possible – which can be up to 30 years, depending on how large their nesting community is. Other female ants are in charge of caring for the eggs, feeding the larva, building up the nest, and protecting them from intrusions during their growth and development. It’s easy to see that these species are basically one of the most systematic insects there are.

Types of Ants

There are three major types of ants that are seen in homes or offices. The Carpenter Ant chews through wood and can potentially damage it beyond repair. The Black Ant is primarily seen in kitchens and bathrooms, because they are attracted to water and sugar. These are notorious for contaminating your food and household products. The Red Ant can be dangerous because they bite when they feel threatened. They are commonly found near playgrounds and in backyards. They build mounds or hills to build their colonies, and if stepped on they defend themselves by biting. These bites cause red, itchy marks that are painful and can develop into a rash.

Lemons

You actually don’t need to use expensive insecticides or costly ant traps to ant-proof your home. Citrus fruits such as lemons give off a strong, tangy smell that pests don’t usually like. Plus, fruits like these contain a certain level of acidity, which is something that the exoskeleton of ants are not able to tolerate due to the way they breathe. To use lemon, simply squeeze lemon juice on window sills, ant nests, and holes and cracks where you think ants might be passing through. You can also scatter pieces of the lemon peel you extracted the juice from.

Eliminate Potential Nesting Spots

Just like any other pests, ants prefer to nest in places that are moist, damp, and dark. This enables them to lay eggs conveniently. Ants work together, and this means that they usually gather in great numbers. You have to eliminate any potential nesting spots like showers, windows, sink bottoms and basements. Look for entryways and fix them promptly in order to prevent creating any other inviting damp spots for the ants.

Jonathan is the exterminating technician that comes to my daughter's home. He is thorough and friendly. I made a suggestion to him about creating a company's "check off" sheet for each client's home. We briefly discussed it and he had some really good ideas too. I appreciate the great service. Kudos to Jonathan and Go-Forth Pest Control.

I actually found their services by using Thumbtack and requested a quote. Chad was prompt in coming out to give me a quote, took a look at my home, listened to the problems I was facing and let me know that a basic service was all I'd need to take care of my spider issue. I was also having trouble with a bee's nest where we just took down 2 trees in the yard and rather than pitching me the more costly, full coverage services he offered an affordable one time service to take care of the bees when they came out to handle my basic service. Joe, their technician, came out to treat my home and did a wonderful job. He was careful to let me know what to expect, and made sure I knew to keep my dogs out of the front yard for the next 2 days because the bee colony would be extremely angry as they died off. I would definitely recommend this company to others!
