If you find ants in wintertime that means you have an ant’s colony inside the home somewhere inside the structure. As ants are cold-blooded and in winter when the temperature drops, they get dormant. If you are seeing ants in winter that means they are behaving like it spring due to the household heat. Another reason for having ants in the winter is due to a bad practice for pest control ants or Extermination ants.
Most of the people use regular sprays to kill ants inside the home and only kill whatever you see but they can’t get rid of the nest and that gives them a chance to distribute in small colonies and spread throughout the house.
