Ant infestations usually begin as a minor irritation. There might be a part of your yard that you avoid because of a small fire ant hill. Or there might be an ant highway crossing a portion of your patio. You might find a few here or there. Under the cupboards, along the kitchen wall, near the doors.
For a while, it might be okay. But then the population booms. And you’re stuck with a nasty problem that’s extremely hard to get rid of.

What Kinds of Ants are Common in North Port?
In Southwestern Florida, there are a lot of ant species. Many are native to the region, many are not. Each one requires a different kind of care and a different approach to control. Let’s explore some of the types of ants that can be found in and around North Port, Florida.
Carpenter ants don’t care much for sweets or discarded food. Instead, they go for wood. When they live in forests, carpenter ants will devour trees and decaying logs. In the city things are different. They go for the wooden structural supports of your home, your deck, your pergola, or literally anything that’s made out of wood. They do not eat the wood but build extensive hollows and galleries to use as a space for their colony. As their colonies grow, carpenter ants can end up by doing real damage to the structure of a building or other wooden construction.
If you find carpenter ants on your property, it’s best to hire an exterminator, like Seven Brothers Pest Control Inc., right away. We’ll send our best team to your place to decimate the colony from the inside out.
Usually, light brown or red in color, pharaoh ants build their colonies in areas that are rich in moisture. They often live in walls or crawlspaces. Usually out of the way and even hidden, they have a bad habit of contaminating food supplies and other goods that are meant to be kept in sterile conditions. Health care centers and restaurants are frequent clients. Call us today for a systematic approach to pest control and ant extermination.
Fire Ants in North Port
Although not native to North Port, fire ants have made the region their home. They are both faster at reproducing and more aggressive than other species of fire ants in the US. And their venomous bites hurt. A lot. Compounded with this is the fact that they swarm. It’s never just one ant wandering around alone. If you disturb them, they will come in waves. Many residents of North Port (and other parts of Florida) have been sent to the hospital with serious complications from fire ants.
If you don’t disturb them, they won’t disturb you. The problem is that if you have a pet or a child, they might not be aware of the danger. They could wind up accidentally stepping in a fire ant hill and getting seriously injured.
