Ants are one of the most common insects throughout the Houston area. They come in various sizes, colors, and types but generally have one thing in common: you don’t want them inside your home. Because ants are social creatures, a small infestation can turn large rather quickly. So, if you see one near or around your property, it’s best to keep an eye out for more.

For many Houston residents, summer brings sun, heat, rain, and with it, more opportunities to go outside and have some fun. Unfortunately, summer also brings out a lot of pests. And while you may notice some of these like ants and cockroaches year-round, the increased Houston heat provides a thriving environment for them and more pesky pests. For example, ticks and scorpions, actually prefer warmer temperatures.

As seasons transition, so do our behaviors. Houston winters, while mild compared to other parts of the United States, occasionally send some locals inside. When spring and summer roll around, people start taking advantage of the warm temperatures and adventuring into the outdoors. And when it rains, which is a common occurrence for our city’s subtropical climate, we generally avoid it.

Houston is home to many types of ants all year round. During summer, particular species of ants, like crazy ants and fire ants, start making appearances across homes more frequently. To the naked eye, these two types of ants may seem very similar, but knowing the difference is important when it comes to prevention and treatment.
