“If it weren’t for the electrician commenting about the ant activity inside the outlet on the opposite side of that wall, the customer might have continued to think it was just a few ants” Certified Applicator and business Owner / Operator for Bullseye Pest Management in Arlington, Steve Moseley commented. He was out on a recent job to deal with ants. They were discovered by the electrician that was in the home. They were in the outlet and around the wires.
Ants can be attracted to electrical lines and electrical stuff. Since Ants are attracted to warm areas, that could possibly be why they are there. Ants are a natural part of the ecosystem, and they're important for the survival of other creatures. But sometimes ant infestations can become a problem. Acrobat Ants and Argentine Ants are two of the most common types of ants, and they can cause a lot of damage.
“Once I found the trail, I began treating, and that's what began emerging from the walls. I see this all too often. Ant infestations that have gone unchecked for quite some time.” said Steve. “That property had both severe Argentine and Acrobat Ant infestations.” Steve continued, “It's not uncommon for those ants to get into soffit areas and into wall voids, which is what happened here.”
Severe Ant Infestation
The Argentine Ant (Linepithema humile) is native to Northern Argentina, among other countries. One of the worst troubles of home-infesting ants. Acrobat ants (Crematogaster spp.), when disturbed, can acrobatically raise their abdomen over their thorax and head. Acrobat Ants are especially destructive, because they're able to climb walls and hang from ceilings. Argentine Ants are also troublesome, because they're able to sting humans.
