If you’ve seen a few ants scuttling around on the floor, they could be just having a look around. However, they might be the sign of a larger ant infestation. Here are 3 tell-tale signs that will tell you if you have an ant infestation within your premises. As ants are most active during sundown, do pay particular attention for signs of ant activity during these hours.
Ant Infestation Signs
Live ants - If you’re seeing large numbers of live ants then you may well have a problem. If you find them in your kitchen or in areas where you prepare food, then you need to do something about it fast.
Ant pathways - ant trails in and out of your home or premises are another sign. Some ant species will lay down a pheromone trail to a food source. This trail leads other ants from the colony to the food source.
Ant nest - A nest site can look like a small pile of soil or dirt. Some species of ant like to make their home in walls or other quiet, dark places, which are more difficult to spot.
