Are you bothered by ants despite your best attempts to keep them away? Perhaps you have made certain that no food crumbs remain in your kitchen, bedroom, or any other area of your home. Nonetheless, they keep coming. They haven’t only penetrated your home for the sake of food. Ants are well-known for being superb hunters, not only for food but also for a variety of other reasons. In this article, we will look into these more aspects so that you may understand ant better. You will be able to defend yourself and your property from ant raiding as you learn more about them with the help of  ASM Pest Control’s exterminator.


  • You’ve got ants that eat decaying wood.  

Do you live in a wooden structure or have wood woodwork in your home? The answer is unquestionable YES because most houses have some form of wood structure surrounding and within them. Carpenter ants get their name from the fact that they use scraped wood to build their nests. Carpenter ants devour decaying wood, thus it is vital to correctly identify the ants you are dealing with. Carpenter ants can have the capacity to degrade house construction, inflicting catastrophic property damage to homes and other structures. Our ASM PEST CONTROL  exterminator can help you get rid of ants in your house.

  • Ants Are Searching For Food.

Ants, like other insects, require a source of food. Many of the ant species present in the Lower Mainland are attracted to sweet, sticky, and starchy foods commonly found in kitchen cabinets. These items can attract ants into your home, especially if they are stored in containers that aren’t completely sealed or can be chewed through, such as paper sugar sacks or plastic cereal bags.

  • Severe Weather Protection is Required for Ants:

Another important reason your house may entice ants is that it protects them from excessive heat or cold. If your ant infestation did not appear overnight, check whether there is a connection between it and recent weather events such as floods, heatwaves, or frost.

  • Ants Are Seeking A Source Of water:

Ants, like all living things, are thirsty creatures who are continually on the lookout for easily available water sources. Any standing water on or near your home may attract ant, making it easier for them to settle. Ant, like humans, need water to survive. If water is no longer available in their colonies, they will seek alternative areas where they may replenish their supplies.
