Bergen County Ant Elimination Experts

Several types of ant species live in the United States. But for most homeowners, making sure the dreaded Carpenter Ant is not on the premises is their biggest worry. But ants of any type can be persistent in trying to get into your home and eventually, get into your food. A queen ant can lay up to 800 eggs in a single day. Knowing that an ant population can increase that much in a single day shows the importance of making sure no ant is allowed to trapes through your home freely.

After identifying an ant problem, you will want to make sure you call in the best ant elimination experts in Bergen County so that it won’t quickly develop into an ant infestation.

Preventing ants from coming inside

 To prevent ants from entering your kitchen:

  • Wipe down your tables and counters with an all purpose cleaner
  • Keep floors and surfaces free from crumbs and sticky spots
  • Caulk around windows and door frames. Ants can enter through tiny cracks so checking for small entry points will help keep ants from coming in
  • Keep food in airtight containers
  • Spray white vinegar around possible entry points to deter ants from entering

Ants are after food and water and they will relentlessly pursue both. If food and water are found in your home, a few ants will soon let the rest of their nest know where it is and how to get there. Ants will pour into your home in search of food to take back to their nest, in the form of a mound, outside. Ant control professionals  will first deal with the ants that are inside your house, and then will stop the ants at the source by eradicating their outside colonies.

Identifying the ants

There are multiple types of ants that live in the U.S. If you find ants in your home, identifying what kind of ants can be crucial.  Some ants may be going after the structure of your home instead of a crumb under the dining room table. Carpenter Ants, for example, do not eat wood like termites, but they burrow into the wood which can weaken the boards and possibly cause the structural integrity of your home to be compromised. Carpenter Ants are larger than your average ant, are dark red to black in color, and the worker ants have wings. If you identify Carpenter Ants in your home, call a professional immediately!
