Ant Control in Jacksonville, FL
Ants outnumber people 1.5 million to one, and are found on nearly every part of the globe. Despite appearances, they are capable of lifting 20 times their body weight!
While there are nearly 12,000 species of ants in the world, a few of the most common species of ants in Jacksonville, FL include: carpenter ants, fire ants, crazy ants, pharaoh ants, ghost ants, and acrobat ants. Carpenter ants use hollowed wood to build their home, while fire ants build large mounds in yards and other open areas. These ants are identified by their erratic running pattern caused by their abnormally long legs. Some ants, like pharaoh ants, live exclusively in homes and around people in areas with high moisture and high temperatures. Ghost ants are known for their translucent appearance, while acrobatic ants are identified by their heart-shaped lower-body.

Did You Know?
- Ants live in colonies of hundreds – or even thousands!
- Most of the ants you see in your home are foraging ants looking for food to take back to the nest.
- If you kill the trailing worker ants that are foraging for the colony, you will kill a couple ants, but the colony will just send out more ants – to trail across your floor and counters seeking food.
- To get rid of the whole colony of ants, you have to get rid of the breeding queen who stays deep within the nest.
Carpenter Ant Control in Jacksonville
The carpenter ant can cause a great deal of damage to a home, as it hollows out the wood to build its galleries and nests. Carpenter ants will usually start their infestation in wood that is already damaged, but it will expand into good wood as its population grows. This ant will travel up to 100 yards to forage for food.
Ant control and elimination of the destructive carpenter ant will require inspection, targeted treatment, and repair of damaged wood.
