Recent Survey Identifies Ants As Nation’s #1 Nuisance Pest
What do jaywalkers, noisy neighbors, and barking dogs have in common with ants? They are all considered nuisance’s we must deal with quite regularly.
Ants recently got the distinction of being labeled America’s top nuisance pest; beating out mosquitoes, house flies, and gnats for the dubious honor. Ants were given this top distinction after a nationwide survey was conducted by the National pest Management Association (NMPA). Pest Control Operators were polled, and 100 percent have treated ant infestations the past year; with nearly 55 percent saying that ant problems are on the rise.
Breaking Down The Nation’s #1 Nuisance
Why Ants Are More Than Just A Nuisance
While ants have always been thought of as a nuisance, they can bite or sting and also cause serious damage to your home or property.
- Carpenter ants will burrow through wood and nest inside homes, which can compromise a home’s structural integrity.
- Odorous House ants will infest you home, making their homes inside your walls, looking for sweets in your kitchen.
- Fire ants can create destructive mounds on your property; and a person can actually receive several hundred painful stings simultaneously when they attack.
- Argentine ants do not sting, but they will spread rapidly if left untreated.
