Ants in Colorado

Ant Extermination

Ants are the dominant group of insects most closely related to wasps and bees. Ants are found in nearly every part of the world. In Colorado, there are there are 178 different species of ants.  Yes, you read that correctly, 178. Though some ants are more common than others, you may be familiar with a few by their common names: fire ants, sugar ants and army ants to name a few.  Ants range in size, from 1.5 inches long all the way down to 1/16th of an inch. Ants can be some of the most annoying pests and definitely some of the most resilient. Ants can be almost impossible for a typical home or business owner to exterminate on their own. Many over-the-counter products can actually cause ants to increase their reproduction.

How Ants Get Inside

Of all insects, ants seem to be able to work their way inside better than any others. Since many of them are smaller than 1/2 inch, any crack or crevice around the foundation will allow them easy access. They are also subterranean, meaning they live underground, and dig their way underneath or around foundational dividers. Although sealing visible holes and cavities is a good idea to keep ants out, as well as all other pests, normally this method needs to be used along with other methods. Yard work and construction can aggravate ant colonies causing them to move inside your home.  Keeping a clean yard with firewood stacked somehwere other than next to your home will help keep ants outside.   Also, make sure food is cleaned up and the especially the on the floor. Eliminating the ants’ food source will help keep their reproduction numbers at a minimum.
