Food Contamination

Ants may carry and transmit bacterial and fungal organisms that are serious disease pathogens and can be spread around your food or pantry.

Property damage debris particle icon

Property Damage

Acrobat ants and carpenter ants build their nests in damp or decaying wood. Homes with moisture issues are prime targets for carpenter ants.

Harmful bites and stings on hand icon

Harmful Bites and Stings

Ants can bite when they feel threatened, and a person who is highly allergic to wasp and bee stings may also be allergic to ant stings.
