Pharaoh Ants

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Pharaoh Ants Dangerous?

Pharaoh Ants are not directly dangerous to humans, as they do not bite or sting. However, they can be a significant nuisance and pose a risk to human health, as they can contaminate food and spread diseases such as Salmonella and Staphylococcus. Their presence can also exacerbate allergies and asthma in sensitive individuals.

Why do I have a Pharaoh Ant problem?

Pharaoh Ants are attracted to properties with readily available food, water, and shelter. They may enter homes and buildings in search of warmth, safety, and easily accessible food sources. Poorly sealed doors, windows, or gaps in walls can allow Pharaoh Ants to gain entry to your property.

Where will I find Pharaoh Ants?

Pharaoh Ants can be found both indoors and outdoors. Outside, they may be found in soil, leaf litter, or other protected areas. Inside, they may be found in dark, secluded areas such as wall voids, under appliances, or in pantries. They are most active during the early morning and late evening hours.

How do I get rid of Pharaoh Ants?

To get rid of Pharaoh Ants, first identify the areas where they are active. Implement proper sanitation practices, reduce clutter, and eliminate potential entry points. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows to prevent ants from entering. Use baits specifically designed for Pharaoh Ants, as some conventional ant control methods may cause the colony to split and make the infestation worse. For persistent infestations, consider hiring a professional pest control service.

How can I prevent Pharaoh Ants?

Preventing Pharaoh Ants involves maintaining a clean and clutter-free property, addressing potential entry points, and regularly inspecting your home and yard for signs of activity. Regularly clean both inside and outside your home, paying special attention to potential hiding spots. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows, and store food in sealed containers. Keep vegetation trimmed away from your home's exterior.
