As spring dawns many insects are waking from their winter slumber. Of course, you may have seen some of them over the winter, but for the most part, you will soon find them within your home.
One of those insects are ants. Ants are interesting creatures. The next time you find a colony hiding under your counter or in the closet, remember these three things.
- They are old. In fact, they are so old, that they conquered the earth before humans did. Ants are a hundred million years old.
- Ants can be found almost everywhere in the world. Being so old, they’ve travelled the planet searching for better homes.
- They operate together with a hive mind and communicate via pheromones.
What allowed ants to conquer the world is their tenacity and strength. Because they can communicate so well, almost seeming like they are being controlled by a central mind, your small colony may become large before you can control it.
When you see an ant colony, speak to a pest control professional quickly. Enjoying the unique nature of ants is best done through the looking glass of your child’s pet ant colony.
