A: How do I identify which type of ant is invading my home?

Q: Unless you have experience using a scientific key to identify ants and/or have years of professional experience related to ants, it’s rather difficult to pinpoint the exact ant species that might be invading your home. That’s where professional pest control comes in handy. Should you spot any type of prevalent ant problem in or around your home, it is best to consult a licensed pro. You might even collect the insects to have them identified by a company’s technical expert or through your local state extension service — a service most states offer which utilizes expert university scientists.
