You’ll almost never see just one ant in your home. If you do, dozens or even hundreds more are bound to follow in short order. Ants are extremely social pests, and they work together as a colony to find and retrieve food. Even the tiniest crumbs can attract a slew of ants to your kitchen shockingly quickly. Because they work together so well, it can be extremely hard to fight an ant infestation on your own.

Ant Prevention Tips:
- Make sure your trash cans – both inside and outside – have tight-fitting lids that are always replaced after use.
- Keep as much of your food as possible in the refrigerator, and store everything else in sealed plastic or glass containers.
- Use stone or gravel to create a border around your home or business’s exterior perimeter. This will help discourage ant nest building near entry points to your building.
- Never leave dirty dishes, food debris, or spills unaddressed. Clear everything away immediately after meals.
- Ant colonies are typically organized around one larger colony with multiple smaller colonies in close proximity.
- Ants that live in colder climates have to enter a state of dormancy to survive the winter.
- In just one day, some kinds of ants can lay up to 800 eggs.
- There are more than 1,000 species of ants in North America and 12,000 species around the world.
- Ants guide their colony mates to food by leaving a trail of pheromones in their wake.
- Every ant in the colony belongs to a certain social order and performs certain tasks: worker ants find food, queen ants lay eggs, and swarmer’s start new colonies.
- Some queen ants have been known to live for up to 30 years.
