It’s already the new year, and spring is right around the corner. With the arrival of fair weather, ants and termites will begin swarming once again. Many people mistake flying ants for termites. There are some striking similarities between the two, but there are also some appreciable differences. Termites have straight antennae, whereas flying ants have bent ones. Termites have wings of equal length, but flying ants have wings that are unequal in length. Termites have a straight abdomen, and ants have a narrow one. Everyone knows that termites can damage homes.

What about ants? Should homeowners be concerned about them, as well? Besides being an annoyance, ant problems can result in damage to a home or even illness in people. Pharaoh ants often will infest food sources, rendering them unappealing for human consumption. In Nursing homes and hospitals, these ants may spread disease. Staphylococcus are a group of bacteria that can cause a battery of different diseases after having infected parts of the human body. Carpenter ants can wreak havoc on homes or businesses. These large black ants enter homes seeking food. However, they may also build nests in water damaged wood. Tell tale signs of carpenter ant damage are sawdust like debris, frayed wood, and so forth. Fire ants can cause damage to lawns, equipment and machinery, crops, livestock, etc. They can even depreciate the value of real estate. It’s an alarming experience to accidentally step into a fire ant mound and be bitten repeatedly. In some instances, people have actually died from numerous ant bites, due to an allergic reaction.
