Ants are often used as an example to demonstrate the advantages of teamwork, but to most of us these little insects are nothing more than an irritation in the home. It seems like once they have invaded your home, they are almost impossible to get rid of.
There are mainly three types of ant species found in cities:
Garden Ants are attracted to sweet foods and leave a pheromone trail back to their nests for others to follow.
Pharaoh’s Ants feed on decomposing food and carry harmful germs picked up from their feedings.
Fire ants are found in sunny spaces and sting animals and humans.
All of these ant species can be killed via pesticides and other poisonous products, but these are not only harmful to the environment but can also be poisonous to animals and children. Therefore, it is better to consider options that are more Eco-friendly and poison-free when you decide to start your battle against these busy insects.
