Ant Solutions for Home & Business Owners

Ants are some of the most common pests we see infesting the yards, homes, and businesses of New Jersey. These tenacious insects typically enter our homes in search of food and water. Often attracted by excess moisture, open trash cans, and compost piles, ants will quickly establish a satellite nest on or inside your property once they have discovered a consistent source of food.

Though they generally build their primary nests outdoors, ants will establish nests under floors, behind walls, or even in ceilings if they manage to get into your home. This can make controlling an active ant infestation very difficult, especially if it is well established. As such, effectively treating an ant infestation requires a comprehensive approach that treats not just the affected area, but also the source of the infestation.

Common Ant Species in New Jersey

There are many different species of ants living in a variety of environments, feeding on a variety of food, and displaying different behaviors. Here are the ant species we see most often:

  • Acrobat Ants

  • Ghost Ants

  • Odorous House Ants

  • Pavement Ants

  • Carpenter Ants

  • Fire Ants

  • Pharaoh Ants

Most ants that invade our properties are nuisance pests. This includes acrobat ants, ghost ants, odorous house ants (aka sugar ants), and pavement ants. Though relatively harmless, these ants can contaminate food and surfaces with bacteria that they carry on their bodies and legs. Other species, such as carpenter ants, fire ants, and pharaoh ants, are quite destructive, causing structural damage, spreading diseases, and being actively aggressive towards humans.

Ant Prevention Tips for New Jersey

Ants will build their nests in a variety of locations, depending on their species. Nesting sites are found underground, inside of wood, under debris, or at ground level. Some prefer dark wooded areas, others like open sunny grassy areas, and still others in the soil within the cracks of pavement or cement. Here are some prevention tips to help make your property less attractive to ants:

  • Cut tree branches and overgrown vegetation away from the exterior of your home.
  • Keep gutters and downspouts free of debris so that they will direct water away from your home’s exterior.
  • Leave a 12 to 18-inch barrier of rock or stone between mulch, soil, or grass and the foundation of your home.
  • Repair any cracks in the foundation and exterior walls of your home.
  • Install weather-stripping around windows and doors.
  • Always keep tight-fitting or locking lids on trash cans, recycling bins, and compost bins.
  • Repair any leaking faucets, hoses, and pipes.
  • Keep outdoor eating areas free of food debris.
