Katy Homeowners Driven Crazy by Crazy Ants

September 20, 2010


These little bugs are becoming quite a problem in Katy. Many Katy homes have been inundated by these pesky little critters. The main problem in your home is that they are just a nuisance. Take a look at this video taken by our trusted pest control professional, Scott McGrath, from McGrath Pest Control.



I can definitely see why they call them “crazy ants”. Crazy ants will live in large colonies, and they can cause problems for homeowners and businesses by getting into and fouling electronic circuitry, as well as just making life miserable by getting into and all over everything. However these ants are not just bothering homeowners, they are threatening the livelihoods of small business owners in Southeast Texas. You see, it seems that these creatures will eat just about anything, but they love the larva of bees. They will get into a hive and completely decimate the larva of a beehive. This ultimately kills the colony. Once the ants have driven away the bees and killed the hive, they use it for their own colonies.
This has been happening to bee keepers all over Fort Bend and Harris counties. As these pests are very difficult to manage, it looks as though help will have to come from state authorities to help get control of this problem.
We had these pesky creatures in our home in Katy, and it didn’t take us long to call in the pros. Scott and his team at McGrath Pest Control knocked these little suckers out quick. If you have these ants, or any other pests, bugging you (couldn’t pass up the pun) schedule a visit from McGrath Pest Control, and tell them Stacy and Jackie said hello. As always, I hope this helps.
