The Ant Hill You See Is Not the Ant Hill You Have - Florida Pest Control

Anthills are a common sight in Florida backyards, but few of us ever stop to think about what is going on beneath the surface of an anthill. Children are often tempted to kick ant hills apart and assume the colony is taken care of, but that is almost never the case.

If you’ve ever seen an ant farm, you know how deep below the surface many ant colonies will go. Usually, the portion of the anthill that you can see is only a small part of the entire anthill.

This incredible video shows you just how intricate and large an anthill can become. By pouring molten metal into the opening of an anthill, we can see the size and complexity below the surface.

Pretty neat, right? While it looks cool, it also goes to show that just dispersing the visible portion of an anthill does just about nothing to actually remove ants from your property. There are many effective remedies for some ant infestations, but some colonies can persist despite your best efforts.

Florida Pest can actively manage ants, termites, and many other common household pests, no matter how deep in your yard they live.
