Ants are some of the most clever and resourceful pests. They are able to sneak into your business by the hundreds through cracks in windows and doors.
Some ant species live in colonies that are supported by a single queen while others are supported by multiple queens.

Although there are 1,000 ant species known in the U.S., there are relatively few that we commonly see as pests. These include:

Whether you are dealing with Rasberry ants versus Carpenter ants could mean using a liquid insecticide or bait station.
