- Ants can pose a serious threat to health and safety. Alabama has 9 major species of ant. These range from harmless but annoying odorous house ants, to wood damaging carpenter ants, to the painful and dangerous fire ants.
- 1 in 10 children and 3 out of 10 adults will have a severe allergy to fire ants at the first encounter. The second exposure to fire ant bites can increase the reaction severity by as much as 70%. 3 out of 10 adults are epi-pen status regarding fire ants and other stinging insects.
- Business and home owners face a huge liability risk from fire ants in the yard. If a client or guest is exposed to fire ants at your home or business and has an allergic reaction, you can be found liable financially.
- Ants can find their way inside the most secure structure. They forage for water, protein, and carbohydrates (often in the form of sugar). We find them most often around the sinks either in kitchens or bathrooms since water is a basic need for all living organisms.
- Ecopest uses a variety of products to treat and prevent ant problems. Self-treating for ants can only make your problem worse since some ant species react to a spray by splitting the colony and producing more queens (this will double or triple an ant problem.) The best solution for ants is calling a professional like Ecopest. We can protect most homes and businesses for just dollars a day.
