Ants are pests that no Morristown, NJ, homeowner wants to deal with, but Trius Pest Management can help you with effective ant control and prevention.

What are Ants?

Ants are small insects that are known for their impressively sized colonies with distinct social structures, their scavenging activities, and their ability to contaminate surfaces or damage property. Some main types of ants in our area to look out for include carpenter ants, citronella ants, and general nuisance ants like pavement and Argentine ants.

Are Ants Dangerous?

Even though ants are small, they can be a dangerous pest to host around your property, especially in large numbers. Ants carry bacteria with them, and as they scavenge on your property, they leave these pathogens behind on surfaces and in food storage areas. This contributes to an increased risk of illnesses such as salmonellosis and gastroenteritis, especially if an ant infestation is widespread.

Additionally, ant species like carpenter ants tunnel through wooden areas around your property, hollowing them out. This causes significant destruction over time and, if left untreated, may result in structural collapse. You should also note that while most ant bites are annoying, some may trigger allergic reactions or be especially painful.

Why do I have an ant problem?

Ant problems occur on properties that are hospitable to these pests, and if you are noticing an increase in any type of ant species on your property, the chances are you are providing food, water, or sheltering spots to these insects. Get started on ant control by evaluating your property for uncovered trash and food, overgrown areas, moisture issues, and easy nesting spots, removing these ant attractants as needed.

Where will I find ants?

Ants are most commonly found outdoors, and their nests are typically underground. You may notice mounds of dirt around your property that signify an ant colony is hidden underground somewhere. You might also see ants invading fallen trees, hiding under piles of brush or long grasses, or around woodpiles.

Indoors, ants are typically seen around kitchens, trash cans, food storage areas, bathrooms, and garages. Anywhere that is somewhat sheltered and provides easy access to food is a prime ant hiding spot.
