Trail of ants carrying a dried leaf.

Satellite colonies near your kitchen or bathroom could have just enough heat to survive. This means it's not uncommon to spot a trail of ants running along cabinets, floors, tables, and food prep surfaces.

We're not going to sugarcoat it for you: stopping a satellite ant colony is no easy task. Still, it's possible with the right pest control company by your side, including the team at Beeline Pest Control.

This guide goes over everything you should know about ant activity in Denver households. Once we discuss how to identify their activity, we take a closer look at the risks you should know. We also cover ant prevention strategies so you can rest easy knowing your home is safe.

Curious about our unique approach to ant control in Denver? We walk through each step at the bottom of the guide. But first, here's how to identify an ant infestation before it becomes too serious.

Ant Identification: Species Found In Denver

Denver is home to many types of ants, some of which are clever enough to survive the winter. These include odorous house ants, pavement ants, and, rarely, pharaoh ants.

Let's take a closer look:

  • Odorous house ants: Odorous house ants are a recent pest invader, but their numbers around Denver have quickly grown. You may notice these tiny pests emerging from wall cracks and subfloors. They are small black or brown ants, but their strong, off-putting smell is the easiest way to identify them.
  • Pavement ants: Another little black ant, pavement ants are also found around Denver homes. While they often nest in or under cracks in the pavement, they are drawn to food and will enter homes when there is a ready supply of food and water. 
  • Pharaoh ants: The pharaoh ant is a major pest for townhomes and other residences in close proximity to one another. Although they only measure 1/12 of an inch in size, they can spread serious diseases and contaminate food and water.

We know ants can live inside your home during winter. But how dangerous can their activity be?

As you'll see below, ants may be more dangerous than you realize.

Assessing The Risks: The Problems Created By Ant Infestations

In-home ant infestations lead to all sorts of problems. Not only do they eat through and contaminate your food supplies, but they can also cause structural damage. Friends or family members with allergies may have a reaction to ant stings, although this is extremely rare.

The biggest problem caused by ant infestations is the reduction of your quality of life. If you're ready to take back your home from ants, you can contact Beeline Pest Control for immediate solutions.
