How Can We Prevent More Invasions From Argentine Ants?

Argentine ants are a pest species that is able to invade a home. They are found in a variety of places, such as the kitchen pantry, bathrooms, and electrical outlets.

They tend to live in moist places. They are also able to hold moisture, such as in gutters and boards. They can enter a home to find food or water.

The Argentine ant is native to Argentina, Uruguay, and southern Brazil. It first arrived in the United States in 1890 on coffee ships. The Argentine ant is one of the most common household pests.

The Argentine ant is very aggressive toward other nests or non-nestmates from its distinct super-colonies. Even colonies that are only two hundred yards apart can fight. Argentine ant colonies often interconnect, and the queens can travel from one colony to the next.

The best way to prevent more Argentine ant invasions is to take preventative action, such as sealing any entry points into your home. If you are experiencing a problem, you can contact a pest control company such as Aiken Pest Control, or Ross Environmental Solutions for help.

The Argentine ant is highly invasive, and it is difficult to control. There are many different ways to deal with the pest, including insecticides, dusts, and baits.

A bait dispenser can help control the ants. It is important that the dispensers are installed at least five feet away from the nests, and out of direct sunlight. Also, it is important that the bait is palatable, slow acting, transferable, and non-repellent.
