Ant Control in Las Vegas

One of the most common, and perhaps most aggravating, insects around the Las Vegas area are ants. The weather in Las Vegas is very agreeable to ants, and once settled into an area, ant colonies quickly grow. Exterminating these pests will require the help of a professional exterminator because many home remedies often seem to increase egg-laying by the queens, creating even larger colonies.

The Most Common Ants in Las Vegas

Damage to People and Property

Each of the ants listed above has specific dangers associated with them. Of this list, however, the three most dangerous ants to be concerned about in this area are the Argentine, the Fire, and the Carpenter Ant.

The Argentine ant does not necessarily do anything that would be harmful to humans, such as attacking or swarming, but the breed at such a significant pace that in a matter of a few months a single colony can become several million strong, overtaking a home or property. The Argentine ant is one of the few insects that have multiple queens within one colony, and they have extended life spans compared to other ants. These ant colonies will quickly overtake a property or home making it impossible to live there without professional extermination services.

The Southern Fire ant is a very aggressive ant that is not afraid of people. If the fire ant sees a person or animal approaching it will attack. Fire ant bites are very painful and can cause severe allergic reactions. Even in people who do not necessarily react to insect bites will react to fire ant bites. Similar ants are so rampant, that they can now be seen from space on Google Earth.

Carpenter ants in Las Vegas cause the most significant damage to the property of all these species. This breed of ants is called a “carpenter” because they love wood. They will chew wood and other building materials, destroying any structure from the inside out. Carpenter ants love dark and damp areas to start their colony and then they slowly invade the property until everything edible to them has been used.

Preventing Ants

While it is nearly impossible to prevent ants from invading a property without professional treatments, there are things that you can do to slow their progression and make our property less appealing to insects. Removing all debris from your yard and piles of yard waste is the first step. Ants love dark and moist places and love piles of yard waste to start their colonies.

Avoid leaving standing water in any area if possible. Ants look for a water source, much like humans, to start their colonies. It is also very important to make sure that you seal cracks in your home foundation and around windows and doors. At the first sign of a colony developing anywhere in your yard, seek treatments to prevent them from spreading.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ants

  • What attracts ants to your home? 
    Ants are generally attracted to food and moisture in your home. If you tend to leave food out or have a leaky pipe or faucet, you’re more likely to experience an ant infestation. Ants are also drawn to areas that could provide nesting areas for the colony.
  • How do I stop ants from getting in the house? 
    The best way to keep ants from entering your home is to seal off cracks, holes, or other places that allow ants to get in. You should also remove all debris and overgrown foliage from around your home that could be used as a bridge for ants to enter your home. Store all food in sealed containers or in the refrigerator and keep surfaces in and around your home clean.
  • Are ants dangerous to people? 
    Ants generally do not pose a health risk, but they do have the ability to contaminate food or other areas of your household by carrying dirt and debris into your home. Some types of ants, such as fire ants, will bite when feeling threatened. This can be dangerous for small pets or children. Other ants, such as carpenter ants, can even cause structural damage to your home by tunneling through your walls to build their nest.
  • What kinds of ants do we have in Las Vegas? 
    There are several types of ants in Las Vegas, including Argentine Ants, Southern Fire Ants, Black Harvester Ants, Carpenter Ants, and Odorous Ants. Although each species of ant poses different risks, the most common are the Argentine Ants.
