Why does my Evansville home have ants?

It's the time of year when ants start making their way into people's homes as they search for food and shelter. While it's not uncommon to see a few ants here and there, if you're seeing an influx of them, it's time to call in the professionals at Yikes Pest Control. We can help identify the source of the ant problem and provide a solution that will keep them out for good!




Odorous house ants are the most common ant in Evansville homes. They're small and black, and they often build their nests in moist, shady areas outside. They're called odorous house ants because when they're disturbed, they give off a smell that's similar to rotten coconut.

Odorous house ants colonies can be quite large. In some cases, they can number in the thousands. The ants will forage for food up to 100 yards from their nest, so it's important to identify and address the source of the ant problem as soon as possible.

Ants come into Evansville homes for a variety of reasons. One of the most common reasons is that they're looking for food. Ants are attracted to sweets, but they'll also eat proteins and other types of food. They're also attracted to moisture, so if your home is in a moist area, you're more likely to have an ant problem.


While it's not uncommon to see a few ants here and there, if you're seeing an influx of them, it's time to call in the professionals at Yikes Pest Control. Ant infestations can be difficult to get rid of on your own, so it's best to leave it to the experts.
