According to the National Pest Management Association, (NPMA) “Ants are the number 1 nuisance pest in the United States.” Although you wouldn’t think so due to their small size, they can really become unwanted once they find their way into someone’s home or property.
The good news is that Standard Pest Management specializes in complete ant control and removal services throughout Westchester County, Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Staten Island, Long Island and Northern NJ.
Out of the 700 different types of ant species, there are really only about 25 that are common invaders among households and commercial properties. They are definitely a cause to be concerned with for a number of reasons.
Ants easily find their way into homes or buildings by entering through cracks, window sills, frames, porches, garages, and foundations. It’s their size and breeding abilities which make them formidable bugs to control. Through the use of pheromone scent trails, ants are able to communicate bringing others to follow in mass. These trails will lead other packs of ants toward sources of food or water and likely into your property.

ll Phases of Ant Treatment & Extermination Since 1929 Within NYC
It’s very typical for ant colonies to be either large or very large. They are social insects and live in colonies that contain three different types of groups: Workers, Queens and Males. The workers are the ants you are most likely to see. Just as the name suggests, they “work” to protect the nest and gather food. Outdoors, ants will usually nest within wood or soil.
Typical places we have found ants to nest indoors include underneath floor boards, inside wall cavities, within insulation, behind kitchen cabinets, in foundation walls, under concrete slabs and behind rotting window frames.
