Scientists estimate the global ant population at approximately 20 quadrillion, making them the most numerous insect on Earth. Almost every ant species lives in colonies, and most survive on fungus, nectar, seeds, and plants. However, they’re also opportunistic eaters and will swarm leftover crumbs, trash, or even dead insects with gusto. Once an ant finds a reliable food source, it creates a pheromone trail from the food to the colony, making it easy for other ants to carry it back and forth. They may be small, but ant colonies are harder to eliminate than you might think.
Below are six common signs indicating that ants are invading your home:
If you’ve experienced any of those issues, call Bee Friendly right away. We offer safe, all-natural treatments to help you eliminate ants using organic ingredients that are safe for kids and pets, eliminating the need for synthetic pesticides or chemicals.
Ants can pose serious risks. First, many ants bite or sting, leading to infections and even allergic reactions. For example, the fire ant stings and injects venom under the skin, causing intense pain and a burning sensation. In addition, some ants can cause major damage to your home by tunneling through wooden structures. Finally, ants can carry foodborne illnesses and cause cross-contamination with harmful bacteria as they navigate your home searching for sustenance.
Ants are pests that can cause harm to your home, health, and happiness. However, discovering an infestation doesn’t mean you should call an ant exterminator who will douse your home and yard with dangerous chemicals and pesticides. Synthetic pesticide is harmful to the natural environment and can kill bees and other pollinators. Don’t bother with ant bait either — it only provides a temporary solution, not long-term.
Fortunately, Bee Friendly has you covered. Our ant pest control treatments are natural and organic yet still highly effective. Our products are safe for:
We have taken the initiative to go green and help the environment by reducing harmful synthetic pesticides. Instead, all Bee Friendly ant pest control products (like our Perimeter Ground and Air Defense) contain a proprietary blend of U.S.-sourced ingredients, including:
When you partner with the pest control experts at Bee Friendly, you can expect a simple, straightforward, and easy process to eliminate the ant infestation in your home:

The best way to control ants is through prevention — for example, by removing access to open food sources like crumbs, pet food, dirty dishes, etc. However, you can also call Bee Friendly. We offer organic ant pest control treatments that will eliminate your infestation safely without harm to kids, pets, or the environment.
You can find the nest of an active ant infestation in your home by leaving out ant bait or food crumbs. Wait until the ants find the food source, then follow them as they leave a pheromone trail for their companions from the food to their colony.
If you’ve noticed a sudden invasion of ants, there could be a few reasons. Either they’ve found a reliable food source in your home, or they’ve come inside for shelter from cold or wet weather. Ants spend most of their time foraging for food, water, or shelter, and your home provides all three.
Unfortunately, ant infestations will last as long as they have a reliable food source. If you don’t address the issue, the ants will stay for good. However, with organic treatments from Bee Friendly, you’ll see immediate effects, and the infestation should clear up within a week or two.
Ants may be the most common insect on Earth, but that doesn’t mean they can live rent-free in your home. If you have an ant problem, Bee Friendly has the solution. As a pesticide-free company, we offer organic ant pest control treatments that are effective and safe for your family, children, pets, and the natural environment, including pollinators.
