There are about 22,000 different species of ants in the world and about 12,500 of them have been classified. Irrespective of their species, a lot of ants are "workers", meaning they are constantly on the lookout for sources of food. They save up for the winter, as their colonies number in the hundreds of thousands. Although generally harmless, they become a nuisance when their food gathering habits cause them to go after stored food or enter places that are meant to be sterile. Sometimes they also damage plants in their quest for food. Get ant extermination done today to prevent them from spreading through your home.

It is not uncommon for an entire colony of ants to uproot itself and relocate when disturbed. And as such, should you chance upon the ant colony while dealing with an infestation problem, it is recommended that you leave it alone and call a professional ant exterminator instead. Your untrained attempt to drive them away might be temporarily successful, but they might return after regrouping in a more hidden location, making the new nest harder to find.
