If you live in the greater Atlanta area, Skyline Pest Solutions is available to help you with any pest or wildlife problems that you may have. Like most Southerners, residents of Georgia have to deal with a variety of troublesome ant species. Each of these species creates its own unique problems for home and business owners.
Argentine ants are among the most common small ants in Atlanta. These ants are light brown to dark brown in color and typically grow to be an eighth of an inch long. Mature Argentine ant colonies contain hundreds of thousands of ants and at least one queen. Argentine ants create pheromone trails to lead other ants to food sources, and a small group of ants in your home can quickly recruit hundreds of others.
Georgia is home to two species of carpenter ant, and both cause a great deal of property damage each year. These ants do not actually feed on wood, but they carve extensive tunnel systems into construction timbers for nesting and breeding purposes. If the infestation is not removed quickly, the resulting damage can be costly to repair.
The red imported fire ant is a problem throughout the Southern United States. You can detect a fire ant infestation by keeping an eye out for dome-shaped mounds on your property. Red imported fire ants are highly aggressive, and their bites contain a painful venom.
