There are more than 133,000 species of ants on earth. We still have several of those undiscovered. The most common type which bothers Lake Forest and Southern California houses is the Argentine Ant. Argentine Ants were brought over to the USA in the 1890s with assistance from Brazil and the transport of coffee. We can be appreciative of the fact that it prevents ants such as fire ants from growing. The easiest way to stop an ant problem is the use an exterminator or pest control. Our professional Harper Pest Control ant technician will provide a complete inspection of the premises. Following the inspection, you will obtain a detailed report describing all findings, infestations, recommendations for treatment, and pricing details for your property in Lake Forest CA.
Harper Pest Control uses a non-repellent liquid product applied to the exterior perimeter of the house structure. Ants do not sense the substance - they find it in their bodies as they walk - which can cause some irritation. The product thereby is transferred to the other ant colony members including the queen and eventually serves to eliminate the colony. We also use gel bait around the pipes and other things that make their way to our homes like air conditioners. Ants use these small openings as entrance doors and this gel bait protects your home. We also treat mulch that we have on the perimeter because this is also the favorite area for ants. We treat the perimeter of the yard to make sure so any ant colonies don't endanger the home.

The Argentines are incredibly small — about 1.6–2.8 millimeters and change in color from light brown to brown. They are an invasive species that arrived on South American coffee boats in the late 19th century. Like all effective conquerors, the ants were/are highly organized, and it wasn't long before they dissolved the local ant empire the Odorous. They are attracted to water sources such as water on a potted plant, contaminated drains, baths, or kitchens. Ants are looking for food, water, and shelter.

Fire Ants are stinging ants. They are incredibly difficult to manage once inside of the home. The worker ants are blackish to reddish and their size varies from 2 to 6 mm. Fire ants have a stinging effect when they bite by injecting The burnt ants' pain can be very painful. These ants have a dedicated venom-injecting sting, which injects an alkaloid venom, as well as mandibles for biting. Fire ants nest in the soil, often near moist areas, such as river banks, pond shores, watered lawns, and highway shoulders. Usually, the nest will not be visible, as it will be built under objects such as timber, logs, rocks, or bricks. If no cover for nesting is available, dome-shaped mounds are constructed, but these are usually only found in open spaces, such as fields, parks, and lawns.

Odorous house ants have been observed in Southern California for a long time now. They are a little bigger than Argentines and did little against their Napoleon-statured rivals. The simply inability to bite can explain their displacements. The queens lay the eggs which incubate between 11–26 days. After hatching, the larval stage lasts between 13–29 days, and the pre-pupal and pupal stages last between 10–24 days. Little is known about the lifespan of the ant, though it has been shown that queens live at least 8 months (and probably much longer), workers at least a few months (and show every indication of living as long as queens), while males appear to live only approximately a week.
