Ants are a very successful group of insects that live in colonies and just like us they need to have a home and a place to eat. Today ants are the most important and most difficult to control when it comes to pests that invade our homes and work place. Ant colonies will readily abandon their homes outside if they find a better place that’s more conducive for them to flourish. You may have seen ants moving their colony before they will move all the eggs, larvae, pupae and queens. This process can take just a few hours.
