The Dangers of Ant Infestation and Why You Need to Control Them

AntsMany homes have grown used to ant infestation. Unfortunately, many people fail to take the threats they pose seriously. In fact, they consider them as a mere nuisance.

Food Contamination

Food contamination occurs when microorganisms called pathogens to get deposited on food and drinking water. These pathogens cause a wide range of diseases. Among them are cholera, dysentery and typhoid. Ants are major transmitters of these pathogens. This is because they often get in contact with unhygienic materials like droppings of rats that have these pathogens. If they land on utensils like plates and cups or on exposed food, the pathogens easily get into the body when the food is eaten. Food contamination is particularly common when you have a flying ant infestation.

Stings

Ants often defend themselves aggressively in the face of a perceived attack. The most common method of reacting when they feel attacked is stinging. For some ants, these stings are not only painful but can also cause allergic reactions. The latter can be particularly dangerous when you have family members who are allergic or get visitors who are allergic and get stung. One serious allergic reaction that can even cause death is anaphylactic shock.
