Ant Prevention Tips:
- Replace tight-fitting lids on all interior and exterior trash cans immediately after use.
- Store your food either in the refrigerator or in sealed plastic or glass containers.
- Purchase some stone or gravel and use it to create a border around the foundation of your home to discourage ant nest building.
- Always clean up spills right away.
- Don’t leave dirty dishes or food debris in your sinks or on your counters after meals.
- Ant colonies are organized around a central colony with smaller satellite colonies surrounding it.
- When the temperatures start to drop near freezing and below, ants go into a state of dormancy in order to survive.
- Some ants have been known to lay 800 eggs in just one day.
- North America has over 1,000 species of ants, and there are over 12,000 species worldwide.
- Ants can lead other ants to food by leaving a trail of pheromones in their wake.
- Ant colonies have a very strict social hierarchy, with every ant belonging to a specific order and performing certain duties: worker ants find food, queen ants lay eggs, and swarmer’s start new colonies.
- Queen ants can live for decades, and some have lived for up to 30 years.
