Wheaton Ant Control
Cantigny Park in Wheaton is home to acres of land that was once home to Robert R. McCormick. Throughout the years, the land has become a hidden gem and there has been a spike in visitors. Similar to the park, if ants find a land they enjoy, more of them will come to grow their colony.
It is very common for ants to invade a person’s home since the house provides all the wood they need to build their own homes. A queen ant is able to produce thousands of new ants in her 25-year life span. Before you know it, all those ants will be living rent-free in your own home. Wheaton ant control experts at Pointe Pest Control can get rid of them so that you can rest easy.
Ants Come Marching
The most popular ants in Wheaton are carpenter ants, which are large and black. They prefer chewing through dead and damp wood to build their nests. You may even notice an unpleasant smell as their colonies increase. Carpenter ants also have more than one satellite and will travel inside and outside of your home creating gateways through your walls, which may result in severe damage.
They don’t eat the wood they break down; instead they prefer eating dead insects that is a high source of protein and sugar. The life span of a carpenter ant is approximately 6-12 weeks. However, Wheaton’s cold winter seems to be a way for them to live a little longer and could survive for up to ten months. Our pest technicians are the best for Wheaton ant control and will be happy to service you.
