Spring has sprung. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and unfortunately, the bugs are crawling and buzzing about. I am not a fan of bugs. Flies, mosquitoes, bees, ants…they are not a friend of mine! What do you do when these pests give you a problem inside your house? Pest Control is something we may have to worry about at one time or another, especially during spring.
As gross as I, and many others, think bugs are they are actually pretty interesting. Take ants, for instance. Did you know that ants fight to the death?
Check out the infographic below to see some fascinating (dare I say cool) facts about ants. Here are just a few of the facts that I find the most interesting.
Have you ever seen an ant carrying something that looked bigger that it’s body? Well, that’s because an ant can lift 20 to 50 times its own body weight. I always thought they looked funny carrying around such big things.
Just like with bees, Queens rule with ants.The queen is an extremely important part of the colony. When the queen of the colony dies, the colony can only survive a few months, and are rarely replaced. Queen ants have wings. When they start a new colony, they will shed their wings.
