Are Ants Dangerous?

Whether or not an ant is considered dangerous depends on the exact species to which you are referring. Red imported fire ants, for example, are considered to be extremely dangerous. Their stings are painful, and if their victim suffers an allergic reaction, their venom can trigger an anaphylactic response in a person or pet, requiring immediate medical attention. Carpenter ants are also considered to be a dangerous pest. However, they are not a danger to people. Rather, they cause significant and costly damage to homes and other structures that they choose to nest inside of.

Pavement ants, Argentine ants, and odorous house ants are typically considered to be nuisance ants. Nuisance ants tend to cause no real health risks to people or damage to structures. However, their presence should not be tolerated in your home. They can carry bacteria on their legs and body, making the introduction of this bacteria into your home very likely. These nuisance ants also often contaminate food sources and should be handled by a professional exterminator.

How To Prevent Ants

The ant is a very common local pest. It may be necessary to put a home pest control program into place in order to protect your home from ants and other common pests. The following tips can help prevent problems with ants inside your South Carolina home:

  • Inspect the exterior of your home, foundation, siding, windows, doors, and any areas where utilities enter your home. Any gaps, cracks or crevices you find should be repaired using a silicone caulk, weather stripping, or door sweeps.

  • Reduce areas of moisture around your home.

  • Repair leaky faucets, fixtures, and pipes found inside or outside your home.

  • Remove water-damaged structural wood from your home.

  • Make sure that outdoor trash cans have tight-fitting or locking lids on them; ants love to forage for food in open trash containers

  • Trim trees, bushes, and other landscaping away from the outside of your home.

  • Place a stone or crushed rock barrier between any mulch or grass and the foundation of your home.
