What You Need to Know About Controlling Ants in California
How to Control Ant Problem in OC
Ants, while quite pesky, aren’t really an issue in most cases when they are outside, but when they come inside your home, it’s a different story. Here on earth, ants are plentiful with more than 12,400 species and counting. In California, there are more than 270 species with the most common being the Argentine Ant who arrived from Brazil via the coffee trade in the late 19th century. Since their arrival, they have become the predominant ant species in California, and are actually beneficial in the fact that they can prevent the spread of fire ants.
The Problem with Argentine Ants
The problem arises when the Argentine Ants decide to nest in your home or underneath it. Argentine Ants have multiple queens and their colonies range in the millions. Plus, as relative newcomers to California, Argentine Ants have no natural predators. In addition, when confronted by chemicals or water, an army of worker ants protect and move their queen, and relocate. Fighters to the end, Argentine Ants have been known to band together into massive colonies to protect themselves.
