Ants are highly socialized and organized six-legged insects that form colonies. They are found on every single continent and part of the world except for Antarctica. They are also common pests for businesses, farmers, landowners, and homeowners across the globe. This is why starting with the right type of ant control services is critical for a long term solution.
Ants have been around for millions of years, are very adaptable, hardy and hard to kill. They also work together as a group, which makes them perfect for the work they do. Ant colonies can number anywhere from a few hundred to millions upon millions! Each ant has a specific job: queen, soldier, worker or drone, but they can all unite to defend the colony, swarming over attackers.
Ants are known for being strong. A single ant can carry objects much larger than its own size. Some ants can survive even if parts of their bodies are damaged and some have been known to last for weeks without food or water.
