Much like termites, ants can cause significant property damage. Known as the most destructive type of ant, carpenter ants eat their way through wood in order to form nests. With their colonies often containing more than 10,000 workers, carpenter ants can seriously jeopardize the structural integrity of a home over time.
Additional threats of ants include:
- Food contamination: Ants are carriers of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, which can be transferred to food and food surfaces.
- Harmful bites and stings: While all ants are capable of biting or stinging, only a few species (i.e., fire ants) actually do. Ant bites and stings can result in pain, redness, swelling, and allergic reactions.
- Increased pest activity: Other pests, such as spiders, birds, flies, and wasps, feed on ants. A property infested with ants will be more attractive to these types of pests, potentially resulting in multiple infestations.
If you’re dealing with an ant infestation, Hydrex Pest Control is here to help. Our skilled Petaluma ant control technicians restore comfort and safety to your property as quickly as possible.
No one wants to walk into their kitchen and find hundreds of ants on the counter. Keeping your home nice and clean can significantly reduce the risk of an ant infestation. Be sure to sweep, mop, and vacuum regularly and clean up any crumbs or spills right away. Additionally, store all leftover food in airtight containers, take the trash out daily, never go to bed with dishes in the sink, and seal any cracks and gaps along your foundation to keep ants away.
What Do Ants Eat?
Ants are omnivorous, which means they’ll eat just about anything. Some of their favorite foods include insect eggs, fruits, vegetables, meat, sugar, sap, seeds, grease, and oils. Because they’ll eat anything, it is very important to store your food properly.

Is There Anything I Can Use for Ants Inside My House Before My Service Technician Comes for Treatment?
You can use soap and water or an ammonia product for ants all over the counter. Other household and over-the counter-sprays may counteract the control of ants, so please do not use them before or after treatment.
If My House is Sprayed Right Before it Rains, Will the Treatment Wash Away?
Pesticide applied to eaves, around windows, under patio covers, and many pest harborages will be effective even if it rains. Still not sure? Please call us (707) 475-3090.
