ANT CONTROL

New York City's Superior Choice for Ant Extermination

 

Ants often enter a home through cracks around windows or doors, but they can find numerous entrances to your home or building. Once inside, the growing ant colony can become a problem quickly, as ants mature from juveniles to adults within a matter of days.

There are thousands of species of ants, but only four are commonly found species in the United States - and three primary species are found here in New York. It is necessary to properly identify the ant species that you have before an effective means of extermination can be used to eradicate them.

Carpenter Ants: are about 5/8" long, make burrows in damp wood, but can go from there to damage solid wood. They do not eat the wood, but simply remove it for nests.

Pavement Ants: are about 1/8" long; make their nests in cracks in pavement; and can infest a building.

Pharoah Ants: are about 1/16" long; commonly found in hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants, apartment buildings, etc.; and are capable of transmitting Staphylecoccus and Psuedomonas infections in a hospital setting.

Ants with wings can often be mistaken for termites - which may lead to a wrong treatment. Ants have a very narrow thorax (mid-section), while termites' bodies are more uniform.

Treatment is most effective when it is performed near the nest. The professionals here at Superior are ready to evaluate the extent of your ant infestation and give you a free estimate.
