How To Identify Common Ants In Kittitas County

Kittitas County has many different ant species that cause trouble for homeowners. The three most common types you might find inside your home are odorous house ants, carpenter ants, and pavement ants.

Odorous house ants are 1/16 to 1/8 inch long, brown to black, and have an unevenly-shaped abdomen. Carpenter ants are 5/8 inch long, red, black, or red and black and have larger heads and mandibles. Finally, pavement ants are 1/8 inch long and are dark brown to black. All three of these pests build their nests in different locations. One quick way to determine what types of ants are inside or around your home is to invite our team for a detailed inspection.

Our Prosite team is here to do the job if you need ant pest control after the inspection.

Should I Worry If I Have Ants In My House?

Ants do not try to be a problem; they just are. Most species in our area are only a problem because they desire to invade homes to search for food. There are only a couple of species that pose more real threats to health and property.

Pharaoh ants are a problem because they carry and spread harmful bacteria. These small, yellow ants transmit both salmonellosis and staphylococcus. On the other side of things, carpenter ants are a problem because they build their nests into the structural wood of homes; this is destructive and can cost homeowners an arm and a leg to repair.

Investing in home pest control for ants goes a long way toward avoiding the annoyance, destruction, and disease that these pests can bring indoors.

The Many Things That Can Attract Ants To Your Home

Now that you know why you don’t want ants crawling around inside your home, let’s talk about why these pests come indoors in the first place. There are many things that might attract ants, including:

  • Food in your pet's bowl
