WE KNOW THE BAY AREA
The invasive Argentine ant (Linepithema humile) competes with other ant species in the western United States, including San Francisco. During the California drought, Argentine ants invade and infest homes in search of moisture and humid conditions.
Argentine ants grow to be around one-eighth of an inch long and are a dull brown in color. The Argentine ant emits a musty odor when crushed. It feeds on sweets such as honeydew produced by aphids and fruits. It also feeds on the buds of some plants. It travels rapidly along sidewalks, and nests in and around buildings and homes.
Argentine ants build underground networks of nests connected by trails. Multiple queens are capable of producing large quantities of worker ants that forage for food.
You can help prevent a colony of Argentine ants from infesting your home by keeping all exposed household areas sanitary and free of open containers of food. Additionally, caulk or seal suspected areas where ants may gain entry.
To fully remove Argentine ants from your home, it is necessary to find and eliminate the primary nest, or the problem will likely persist. Contact Terminix today for help.
