An ant infestation is the most commonly reported pest problem in New Jersey. More than half of consumers list ant problems as their top pest issue, according to the National Pest Management Association. The main reason is that ants are especially skilled at getting in through small cracks and crevices. Ants enter your home or business in search of food and water. Damp and rotting wood as well as food sources including sugar, grease, peanut butter, crumbs, and dead insects are common attractants for ants. Warmer temperatures and higher water tables from winter snow and springtime rains drive ants out of the ground. Ants are a critical part of our ecosystem, but ant problems can ruin food and spread filth.
Why Choose Eastern Pest Services For Ant Control?
With 35+ years of experience in this industry, we know what it takes when it comes to ant control, prevention, and protection. Unlike nationwide providers, we use effective methods that work well in Northern New Jersey. Our trained professionals have dealt with various ant infestations, and will identify the ant species, and the source of entry to properly eradicate these pests. We provide fair prices and offer same day and emergency services. While many commercially available products will eliminate ants that come into contact with these treatments, only by eradicating the colony will you be able to solve the problem.
Signs of Ants
Ants are known for being one of the most industrious insects in the natural world, which is a huge problem when they enter the home. If a colony lives near your home, it can sneak inside to nibble on crumbs and multiply. While sugar ants are annoying, they are not actually dangerous. The easiest way to see if you have ants is to look at any food that you have left out. While you should always cover your food, you may forget and if ants are present they will quickly sniff out the food and carry it away. Dog food dishes will also bring ants into the home. If you notice an ant colony anywhere in your yard, you are going to have a problem. Ants will travel long distances to look for food, so walking across the yard to the kitchen is not a problem. While there may only be a few ants on the surface of the colony, don't be fooled, beneath the mound of dirt, thousands of ants are lurking.
Effective Ant Treatment
Though ants can be difficult to control once they have entered your home, there are steps homeowners can take to prevent ant problems as well as eliminate ants. Eliminating food sources is a critical first step to controlling ant problems and avoiding infestations.
Ant baits are a very successful method of controlling ants and are safe to use around pets and children. These baits come in gels, granules, or stations. The active ingredients in these baits may be sugar-based or protein/grease-based, to lure a variety of ant species and target their dietary needs.
Treatments will vary based on interior or exterior ant infestation, but Eastern Pest Services deals with all types and can easily determine which treatment is best to solve your ant problem quickly.
Ant Protection Plan
Eastern Pest Services offers a 30-day warranty with a one-time treatment and retreatment with any of our annual plans. Ants can sometimes require more than one treatment due to the size of the colony so Eastern does recommend our affordable and fair annual plan. Our goal is to use the least intrusive/least toxic treatments for solving or preventing a pest problem. When you contact our office, we are happy to provide you a general price range and answer any questions that you have.
