Alright, Queen Creek: it's time to talk about ant control. Because with warmer springs and wetter summers, these pests are starting to spiral out of control.

Hot weather tends to drive ants inside. Significant rainfall also sends them to higher ground. With Arizona experiencing record heat and rain, it's no wonder why these tiny pests are getting worse over time.

How Can I Tell What Type Of Ant Has Invaded My Home?

You can probably identify an ant by sight – it has six legs, two antennae, and a segmented body. However, it may be difficult to know exactly what type of ant you're seeing.

You can start with an image search of some of the most common types of ants in Queen Creek:

  • Sugar ants
  • Odorous house ants
  • Big-headed ants
  • Argentine ants

Can't tell if your ant matches one of the ants above? You can rely on Canopy Pest Control to identify it for you. We offer no-obligation inspections to identify your ants, then explain our proposed plan for custom ant pest control.

Don't Ignore An Ant Infestation

If you leave an ant problem alone long enough, it's bound to turn into an ant infestation. This can lead to several unwanted problems, incurring physical, mental, and financial side effects. 

Physical side effects are mostly self-explanatory – they include contamination and the bites and stings that ants may leave behind. You may have to worry about allergic reactions depending on your susceptibility to stings.

Mental side effects include fear, anxiety, or general stress about dealing with ants. You may feel shame about the state of your infestation or feel embarrassed about inviting friends over.

Finally, financial side effects include the cost of ant control and the expenses incurred by repairing their damage. Some ants can be expensive pests and leave hundreds of dollars in damage around your home.

Want to avoid these unpleasant side effects? Ant control maintenance is the way to go.

Here are some helpful tips you can use to keep your home free from ants.
