  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) March 28, 2013 - The white footed ant has become a major pest in Florida, and they are beginning to become more established, creating large colonies inside and around homes and buildings. Pro-Staff Termite and Pest Control, Orlando's premier pest control company, is encouraging homeowners and businesses to be aware of these white footed ants that are difficult to control without proper pest control.

    "Due to the nature of this species of ants, they can be much more difficult to get rid of than other ant species," says Robert Welch, president of Pro-Staff Termite and Pest Control. "Although these pests don't bite, sting or cause damage, they do invade homes and have large colonies that can really be a nuisance, and difficult to get rid of without proper pest control."

    The reproductive habit of white footed ants is unusual because they typically have several queens that are constantly reproducing. For this reason, colonies can contain up to 3 million ants or more. Although the population may be able to be somewhat controlled with do-it-yourself insecticide, it is advised that if your home is infested, to contact a pest control professional for complete control.

    These pests also have nests that can occupy a variety of areas and that can also be interconnected with each other. They typically do not nest in one location, and can be found under bark, wall voids, roofs, leaf piles, rocks, mulch, and other debris. In most cases, a pest control professional should be hired to treat any type of infestation.

    If you suspect that your home has become infested with white footed ants and you need an inspection, Pro-Staff Termite and Pest Control can offer you unparallelled pest control services and customer service that is incomparable in the pest control industry.
