ATLANTA, GA, October 31, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Atlanta pest control
professionals at Team Pest USA want to remind people that ants are not just a summertime problem. The weather may be cooling down, but this doesn't mean determined colonies are going to stop their efforts to gather food. Quite the contrary actually, as now is the time when many species are the most active. Scouts (ants whose primary role is to find food and lay the trail for the rest to follow) have a keen sense of smell and can detect even the slightest of odors.
Beware of the Tawny
This goes for all ant species, but one that Georgia residents need to be aware of in particular is the tawny crazy ant. As the name suggests, these ants are far more aggressive than their relatives, and are even a greater threat than the feared fire ant. Although they do not inflict painful stings like the latter, what they lack in bite they make up for in number. Tawny crazy ants are known to dominate other ant species by forcefully moving in on neighboring colonies.
The damage they cause to humans is no less severe, as there have been many reports of the species invading homes and buildings, with their main target being electronic devices.
According to Brandon Pelfrey, Owner of the Atlanta wildlife removal
company, "The ants are attracted to the warmth that running electronics (TVs, video came consoles, outlets, etc.) put off, and entire buildings can be destroyed when the bugs are given enough time to feed."
To prevent damage to your home or office, contact a pest control contractor the moment you notice a problem.
