Ants, like other insects, are survivors. They are masters at finding ways around seemingly insurmountable odds. There is a reason that it takes a pest control expert to get them out of your house, as they find ways to adapt to everything that you can throw at them. For example, while ants like wet areas, they can be drowned in enough water. However, they have learned how to adapt to sudden floods in a very ant-like way. Ants, when presented with a flood situation, create rafts, with the queen in the center, to lift the important parts of the colony to rise above the water. They link their limbs together, to create these floating rafts, and keep the colony from drowning. This leads to a hierarchy, establishing what the ants find important.
Interestingly, the brood, the pupae and larvae, end up on the bottom. They float the queen on top of her kids! The workers get spread throughout the raft, as would be expected, but turns out that ant babies are quite a bit more bouyant than would be expected, seeing a high survival rate from these situations. In fact, this rafting behavior leads to my major point, that ants are very adaptable.
Many poisons that are sold over the counter can work on a few ants, but they are generally smart enough to start avoiding the poisons and work around them. It requires a professional touch to get rid of them, and that's where Richardson Pest Solutions comes in.
