Wahiawa Exterminator Reveals Why You Need Ant Control, Wahiawa, Hawaii

No one enjoys walking into the pantry to find a column of ants marching along the floor. Because these insects are more than just a nuisance, it is vital to implement ant control measures to prevent infestations from getting out of hand. The experts at Aloha Termite & Pest Control of Wahiawa, HI, have decades of experience in ant control and other forms of pest management.

Below, they explain some of the harmful effects these insects can have on your life and home: 

  • ant controlPhysical Injury: Some ants, such as Hawaiian fire ants, can cause physical harm by inflicting a painful sting. These insects make their nests in the ground, which could be a tremendous problem for families who like to spend time in the yard. Most other ant species are not aggressive, but they will bite in defense if they feel threatened.
  • Property Damage: Ants can also cause harm to your home and property. Thankfully, Hawaiian carpenter ants are less likely to eat wood than carpenter ants in the mainland United States. However, carpenter ants have been known to cause damage to insulation by building their nests inside it. Other ant species, such as Pharaoh and ghost ants, make their nests in wood structures such as crawl spaces, cabinets, and walls, posing a threat to the structure of your home.
  • Expensive: Aside from proving to be a general nuisance, indoor ant infestations will become expensive when you are forced to throw out food the ants have gotten into. Hawaii’s tropical climate makes the state an ideal habitat for invasive ant species, so act quickly if you believe ants have built a colony inside your home to save yourself time and money.
