What Do White-Footed Ants Look Like?
White-footed ants are a small to medium size, measuring 2.5 to 3 millimeters long. They range from dark brown to black and have a segmented waist. Named after their appearance, they have light yellow or yellowish-white colorations at the ends of their legs.
The ants have six legs and sometimes have wings, which can help them branch out and build new colonies of up to 2 or 3 million individuals. Because their populations can grow quickly, it’s important to call the experts at Royal Pest & Termite, Inc. sooner rather than later if you spot these insects or another pest inside your property.
Signs of White-Footed Ants
This type of ant prefers humid or damp environments like decaying shrubbery and trees. They’re attracted to branches and trunks with nectar or sap-sucking insects and other proteins. They may travel along a building or enter a property while searching for sweet liquids and water.
If you notice trails of ants inside, you may have an infestation. These insects like to move on structural components like sidewalks, edges of brick, ledges and corners. Once inside, they tend to forage below carpet edges or along baseboards. The pests can also be found inside kitchens and bathrooms, near skylights or under roof shingles.
How to Get Rid of White-Footed Ants
Getting rid of white-footed ants requires the proper techniques for identification and control. Professionals have the knowledge and experience to identify the pests and any entry points during a thorough inspection.
In many cases, achieving complete control and management of the pests requires multiple applications of chemicals or ingredients to your property’s foundation and any crevices or cracks where the ants enter your home or business.
