Ants Scope out Prime Real Estate
Where ants build their nests may not be as random as you think. A recent study at the University of Bristol suggests that ant’s survey nearby land in case there is an opportunity to upgrade their home.
Ants that were in low quality nests were seen to search more for a new home than those already living in favorable conditions. Similar to many humans, when considering a move, the ants were most attracted to more open living conditions.
When ants are found, pest professionals control them with a variety of exterior and interior treatments, as well as sanitation efforts like eliminating the sources of their food and water.
