Ant control in Seattle, WA can be difficult because of all the vegetation around us. There’s almost nowhere around a home that ants won’t enter and build a nest. Ants are attracted by moisture, pre-existing conditions, or food substances, and leave a pheromone trail enabling the rest of the ant colony to easily find the source. Most ant colonies are started by a single inseminated female or queen, and can produce colonies within the range of 300-50,000 individuals. Because ants expand in such rapid numbers, it is very important to have an effective ant control program to stop the problem from getting out of control.
