Welcome to Bella’s Exterminator’s guide on ants. Ants are common pests that can invade homes and businesses, causing annoyance and potential damage. This page aims to help you identify different types of ants and provide information on prevention and control measures.

Ants are social insects known for their organized colonies. In Glendora, California, several ant species may be encountered, including Argentine ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. These pests vary in size, color, and behavior.

Habitat And Behavior

Ants can be found in a variety of habitats, including gardens, kitchens, and structural areas. They are attracted to food sources and moisture. Understanding their foraging patterns and nesting habits is crucial for effective control.


  • Argentine Ants: Small, light to dark brown ants with a single node between the thorax and abdomen. They often form wide foraging trails.
  • Odorous House Ants: Dark brown to black ants emitting a foul odor when crushed. They have a single node and irregular foraging patterns.
  • Carpenter Ants: Larger ants, black or reddish-brown, with a single, large node. They nest in wood and may cause structural damage.

 Signs of Infestation:

  • Visible ant trails leading to and from food sources.
  • Small piles of excavated material near nest sites for carpenter ants.
  • Presence of ant nests in outdoor or indoor areas.


  • Keep food sealed and stored properly.
  • Clean up crumbs and spills promptly.
  • Seal entry points, such as cracks and gaps in walls and windows.

Treatment and Control:

For minor infestations, use ant baits and non-toxic repellents. However, for persistent or severe problems, it’s advisable to contact Bella’s Exterminator for professional assistance. Our team specializes in ant control tailored to Glendora’s unique pest challenges.
