Ants – What You Need To Know To Control Them

Understand the Ants

Ants are a nuisance. In order to properly control them, you need to know a little about them. Ants are social creatures, so where you see a couple, you are guaranteed there are a lot more where they came from. The ants that you see wandering around or “marching” in trails are called foragers. This is because that is their one duty as part of the colony – to find food.
