Are you noticing ants in your home?
Ants are often around:
- Laundry Rooms
This is because ants are looking for food and water sources. Cleaning up crumbs can help keep ants out, but did you know that moisture also attracts them? Areas with high moisture concentration above 75-80% will attract ants. The typical and ideal moisture/humidity level inside a home is 35-45% but it fluctuates by season. Water leaks, poor circulation and bad venting increase this level, sending a message to ants to come on in.
Types of Ants
There are three types of ants in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area:
- Sugar ants (black ants)

PESTOUT has the ant control solutions for any of these ants.
