Yakima’s Six-legged Invaders
You keep your home at a nice even temperature. You stock your cupboards with food and drinks. Everything you enjoy about your home is what turns ants into invaders. Odorous house ants scour your kitchen floor for crumbs. When a scout discovers a tasty morsel missed by your broom, she runs back to the colony and soon hundreds of ants are on a food raid. They can climb kitchen cabinets and make their way up table legs. They can even make their nests in the voids within your walls. Your vacuum and broom might remove the workers, yet the queen of the colony will soon replace them with new recruits.
Though odorous house ants love sugars and protein, they are not destructive. An infestation of carpenter ants can destroy your home. Carpenter ants are big and come equipped with powerful mandibles that chew through wood. They create massive tunnels and galleries for their colonies. Unlike termites, they do not eat wood, they simple bore through it. Carpenter ants create satellite colonies and can quickly spread throughout your home. They cause structural damage and make your home unsafe. If you see piles of saw dust and ant carcasses, call Pointe Pest Control.
