Unfortunately, ants have a way of getting into our homes and causing all kinds of problems. If you end up with ants in your Worcester kitchen, it helps to know what kind they are so that you can understand what you’re dealing with.

Most species of ants eat a lot of food in the autumn to carry them over through hibernation in the winter. Now it’s summer and here come the ants again: carpenter ants, odorous house ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants and thief ants. They’re at their peak this time of year in Maine, invading South Portland homes and properties.

Seeing ants in your home in New England in the winter could signal a serious problem, though.
