Eliminating Ant Infestations at Richmond Residences & Businesses

There are more than 12,000 species of ants in the world, with plenty of variation in the way ants look. However, ants share certain common features that make them fairly easy to recognize. 

Ants have the following distinct features:

  • Six-legged insects
  • Narrow waists
  • Large heads
  • Elbowed antennae

Amazingly strong for their size, they are typically somewhere between 2 millimeters and 25 millimeters long and black, brown, yellow, or reddish in color. When you spot one ant, you’re likely to see another nearby. These social insects live cooperatively in large colonies.

The problem with ants, besides them being a huge nuisance, is that they can contaminate food and water, making them unfit for human consumption. Certain species also bring additional troubles. For example, carpenter ants can damage homes as they chew through the wood to build their nests. Other species, including fire ants, bite or sting.
