Clear Signs Of An Ant Infestation In Your Home

One of the attractions of living in the Turks & Caicos Islands is the tropical environment.

Turks & Caicos Islands is home to at least seven species of ants which can present a problem for the homeowner. 

The following are signs of an ant infestation in your home:

  • Trails: When ants find a food source, they apply a pheromone to guide other ants to the location. The ants create a line as they follow the pheromone to the food.
  • Nests: An ant nest looks like an unassuming pile of dirt or soil. The nests may be on the sidewalk, driveway, or yard; however, some ants create nests in walls and other dark, hidden locations.
  • Ants: If you notice an abundance of ants in your yard or if you see ants in the kitchen, you may have an ant infestation. 

Ants thrive in our tropical climate and can quickly become a nuisance in your home. When you see signs of an infestation, take action before ants gain an overwhelming foothold in your home.
