Ants are the number one pest problem in the country. Ant control can be difficult, but there are some things you should know about how ants’ behavior can lead to big headaches for you and your home:
Ants can enter through even the tiniest cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food substances in the kitchen pantry or storeroom areas.
Ants leave an invisible chemical trail which contains pheromones for others to follow once they locate the food source.
They can nest about anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, stumps, even under foundations.
Can number up to 300,000 to 500,000 and whole colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened.
A colony can live a relatively long lifetime. Worker ants may live seven years and the queen may live as long as 15 years.
Most do-it-yourself ant control approaches only kill the ants you see. Some truly effective treatments can penetrate and destroy nests to help prevent these pests from returning. Also, home remedies do not account for the fact that different kinds of ant infestations require different treatments.

Ants don't have lungs.
Due to their small size, ants don’t have the room to accommodate a complex respiratory system such as ours. Instead, they have their own ways of respiration to help transport oxygen around their bodies.
How do ants breathe?
Ants breathe in oxygen through spiracles which are a series of holes located around the sides of their bodies.
