Eugene Sugar Ant Control
In Eugene and the surrounding areas, nobody likes to discover that Sugar Ants or Odorous House Ants have invaded their home.
First, it is important to understand that there are two ants that are called Sugar Ants. The first is actually a Sugar Ant, they like feeding on sweet things like cookie crumbs, spilled syrup. They love your doughnuts and sweet rolls that you have with your morning coffee. The other ant is the Odorous House Ant. Its diet consists of protein-based foods rather than sugar. You will usually find them in your pet’s food dish, around the garbage can, or on the stove.
Ants are experts at finding food because they have five times more odor receptors than other insects. They very quickly and precisely find a meal in your kitchen, bedroom, and family room or where ever crumbs and spills may happen. Even the tiniest crumb or dab of syrup hidden in a crack or crevice on counters or in drawers or on the floor will be quickly located. Just one single scout finding a food source can quickly turn into hundreds or even thousands of foraging and feeding ants.
