Medford Ant Control Helps Bring Zen to Your Home

Living in Medford, Oregon has some serious perks. First off, there’s so much to do. Crater Lake is a lake in an inactive volcano that provides many of outdoor activities, Rogue River is a really popular site for white water rafting and Table Rock is one of the best hiking spots in the state. Oh but that’s not all! Grab some gourmet desserts at the famous Harry and David bakery and fruit store after you’ve spent the day perusing through Medford’s many adorable boutiques. The dining options are endless and the fun is ever present, but it’s always nice to come home to your cozy house in one of Medford’s quiet, safe neighborhoods. But if you find ants having a picnic in your kitchen, nothing makes homeowners more agitated. Ants are one of the most annoying pests you can get in your house. There are a few types of ants like the dark rover ant, the odorous ant and the pharaoh ant, just to name a few, that typically invade homes. The most annoying aspect of ants is that there are so many of them and you can never seem to get them all or figure out where they are coming from. A crumb drops on your floor and suddenly the ant battalion sounds and a million ants are under your table. Medford ant control is the answer to solving this mess.

It’s not just nuisance, some ants cause damage

You might think, “Well, it’s just ants. They might annoy me but at least they won’t hurt anything.” Think again. Let’s not even get into the harm they do to your mental state when you are finding ants swimming in your honey jar or getting into your box of crackers, some ants actually do physical damage to your home. The carpenter ant is a nightmare for homeowners. They don’t need to see their way into their home, they use pheromones to signal each other and before you know it, they are in your walls. Oh, but you don’t know it.

Because carpenter ants are rather quiet infesters. Unlike termites, where you can hear them chewing your walls, carpenter ants only make a light rustling. They don’t eat the wood, they chew through and tunnel into it. If at any time you find flying ants in your house, this is just a phase of their life cycle. If ever you find flying ants in your home, you need to be worried. By the time the infestation is found, you could have real damage within your walls. Though it’s not as severe as termites, all those tunnels and grooves can weaken the structure over time.
