Canton (Cherokee County Georgia) pest control operators get calls to control ants year round. We have several species that love to get into homes. And certain species of ants can show up in staggering numbers overnight, especially if they have discovered a food source.
Ants can build nests inside walls and insulation, but most of the time they are coming into the house from their nest which is located outside in the ground, woodpile, hollow tree, mulch bed, cross-tie wall, etc.
Locating the nest is in important step in controlling most ant species.
Controlling ants can be very difficult. Certain species, such as pharaoh ants, will multiply their colonies (budding) if sprayed with a pesticide. Once they do this, they become much more difficult to control. That is why it is not a good idea for you to spray them yourself. You might see them disappear for a day or two, but when they show up again, it will be in multiple locations and you will have a much bigger problem. Using baiting tactics is the effective method for controlling pharaoh ants
