Ants are social creatures that gather in colonies varying in sizes from a few dozen, to millions. These critters can be found on nearly every landmass on the planet, so it should be expected that you will eventually run into them in your home. The ant most common to the Nevada area is the Argentine Ant. These small ants are able to crawl in and out of your home, hiding in cracks and crevices that are extremely hard to see or reach. These insects, like many others, often forage homes in search of food, water, and warmth. Unfortunately once these pests infest your home and begin reproducing, they can be difficult to get rid of without the help of a pest control expert.
Many people turn to using ant spray, borax, vinegar, and other natural methods in order to remove ants from their property. Unfortunately, many homeowners and Las Vegas residents may be making matter worse by ineffectively treating their homes. When ants are sprayed, the ants that survive scatter off in different direction. These ants, along with Queen ants, tend to separate when being attacked. These bugs may then go on to start new colonies, meaning that your home has now become the host to even more ants.
