What Are Ants?
Most ants located in San Diego belong to the Formicidae family of insects. They tend to live in large colonies underground. While there are more than 12,000 known species of ants, it is estimated that there are 14,000 species. This species is easy to identify thanks to its elbowed antenna and unique body structure. Ants are very successful because they work together to achieve the same goal. They always work hard to serve their queen and ensure that the colony thrives. Since they work efficiently together, homeowners will have a tough time getting rid of them.
Why Do I Have Ants?
Ant colonies often hide outside. An underground nest may continue tens of thousands of ants. While they prefer being outside, there is always a chance that ants will enter your home in search of food. In some cases, they’ll travel hundreds of feed from their nest to look for food in your home. Ants are determined, so they’re always going to find a way to enter your home. They’ll do so using door frames, window frames, plumbing lines, and utility lines.
Are Ants Dangerous?
Ultimately, ants are not dangerous. Still, ants are considered a nuisance pest. In some situations, they will cause damage to the structure. Other times, you have to worry about ants contaminating your food supply. They’re not known to carry disease, but you’ll still want to keep them out of your chips and cereals.
How Can I Get Rid Of Ants?
Ants are tough to eliminate because they have many interlinked nests. During the treatment process, the exterminator may miss one or two nests. If this happens, the ants are going to return and continue haunting you and your family. Our company has a comprehensive small ant treatment program to ensure that we’ll be able to get rid of the ants in their entirety.

Can I Eliminate Them On My Own?
It would be difficult, if not impossible, to eliminate ants on your own. The fact that DIY treatments are usually ineffective doesn’t help.
