ants on hand

Ants are the most common pests that we encounter in our homes. While they are considered a nuisance by most people, many of us are not aware of the fact that these tiny pests can be a health risk as well. Not only do ants contaminate food, some species like fire ants can also cause painful bites, which is why you should seek ant control in Queens.

Most of us run to purchase ant extermination products the moment we encounter an ant infestation, but most of these are a big waste of time. These sprays kill just of a few of the foraging ants that you can see in your home, while the thousands that are hidden away in the nests remain unaffected.

You must hire a professional ant exterminator Queens from a reputed pest control agency like Queens County Pest Control to be completely free of these pests.

Ant Exterminator Queens: Types of Ants

There are hundreds of different ant species in the US. It is crucial to identify the type of ant you are dealing with to understand what kind of damage they can cause and how they can be controlled. Here’s a guide to the common ant species that venture into our homes in Queens County.

Carpenter ants: These reddish-black ants prefer moist wood to burrow into and make their nests. These ants generally come out at night in search of food. These ants can cause severe structural damage to homes if they are not treated on time.

Fire ants: These ants are coppery-brown and 1/8 – ¼ inch long. They can attack with an excruciating sting if their nest is disturbed.

Odorous house ants: These ants are black and brown and are known to produce a strong rotten coconut-like smell when crushed. They usually nest in cracks in the walls and under the floors in homes.

Pavement ants: These ants are dark brown to black and get their name from their ability to nest in the cracks of pavements.

Little black ants: These ants are black and just 3 mm in size. They are known to scavenge in kitchens and garbage.
