In Autumn, The Ants Go Marching. A Local Exterminator Can Help.
As the seasons change, the behavior and migration of insects also changes. Cooler fall temperatures encourage ants to move to warmer climates. And while we, in the DC area, consider Florida a good alternative to winters around the beltway; the ants in your yard will look for closer vacation spots. Your home is a convenient choice and provides shelter and warmth from the cold when the fall sets in.
Ants in the DC metro area range from those little black pests you find on kitchen counters to large groups of odorous house ants that have outgrown their underground nest. Pavement ants are the most common infiltrators. These hot weather creepy crawlies start moving indoors as soon as the temperatures drop. Even a cool September night can send pavement ants searching for more protected environments. Fighting these pests in your home is unpleasant and frustrating. So, don’t let them in. Creating a protective barrier around your house can prevent ant infestations before they happen.
