Ants are a very common problem for households in Melbourne, FL.
However, this doesn’t mean that people should ignore them and continue living like they are not present because they can cause a lot of damage and problems on their properties.

There are many different species of ants and some of them are found in Melbourne, FL too. Carpenter ants, odorous house ants, fire ants, black ants – these are just some of the types of ants that cause problems to hundreds of homeowners. These ants might look different, but they are “working” in a similar way. Namely, they are always searching for food and liquids and on their quest they are leaving a strong pheromone trail that other ants can find and follow easily. As a result of that, people are often witnessing a real infestation in their homes.
But, there is another thing that makes these species of ants different and that’s the damage they are causing. In most cases, they can lead to minor damage in homes. However, there are species like Pharaoh ants for example that can infest food and lead to digestive problems. In addition, carpenter ants can damage wood making your home structure less reliable.
