Problems with ants can go from bothersome to out of control in no time, which is why treating an ant problem at the first sight of even just a few ants is important.
The Trouble with Ants
While ants don’t typically pose a health problem to humans, the biggest problem with ants is the sheer number that can be present in a colony. Prior to an infestation, scout ants are sent out to locate sources of food and water for the colony, then report back with their findings. As soon as viable sources of sustenance are found, your ant problems will go from one or two ants, to hundreds, even thousands, overnight.
