Ants are considered to be a nuisance pest that can carry dangerous bacterial and fungal pathogens such as Salmonella, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus which can have particularly harmful effects on your health.
Like many other species, ants are social insects that live in large colonies, some with only one queen and others with multiple queens.
Some ant species will lay down a pheromone trail to a food source. This chemical attracts other ants to find the food.
An ant nest may look like a small pile of soil or dirt. You can find nesting sites along the bottoms of walls, in paving, against plant stems or pot plant bases, in foundation cracks and in grass.
Some common ants you may find in your home include the argentine ant, black house ant, coastal brown ant, and the pharaoh ant.
