Ants are social insects and live in large colonies. In most species, the workers are responsible for collecting food, defending the colony, and caring for the young and the queen.
Pest Squad takes advantage of the social behavior of ants including following pheromone trails, grooming, communicating and other forms of physical contact to transfer insecticides to other ants.
Ants feed on practically every kind of food, but those entering homes are looking for sweets and/or protein-containing substances.
There are about 700 species of ants in the United States and Canada.
The biology and habits of each ant species are different, so a detailed knowledge of these for each species is necessary for effective control.
