Creepy electricians – crazy tawny ants

Posted On: 03/23/2014

Theres been someone working on the wires and cables in your home. For some reason, your stove doesnt turn on anymore. Your toaster will not lock your bread into place either. If youre wondering what happened, the answer is quite simple: several electricians have done work on your home, and you wont find them in the Yellow Pages.

A certain type of ant has taken Atlanta by storm, and theyre different from the usual ant suspects although they slightly resemble fire ants in color and shape. The ants are actually tawny crazy ants, an invasive species from Texas.

These peculiar crazy ants are much different than any ants youd encounter in Atlanta. In fact, theyre more like termites than ants because theyre capable of very expensive damage to electrical systems found in homes and businesses either directly or through electrical fires caused by damaged to wires and cables.

Its important to ensure that your home or business is ant-free. Just spotting a handful of ants of any species is indicative of a bigger problem and a full-blown infestation. Luckily, weve compiled a handy ant guide that gives you the information you need to exclude and deal with these tiny pests.
