The Habits Of Common Ants

Ants in New Jersey are attracted to locations that provide shelter, food, and water and will travel great distances to find these things for their colonies. While this usually isn't a problem outdoors, where a colony will often nest underground, if they find the resources they need to survive in your home (say, for example, food left in the open air or water pooling from a leaky pipe), they could relocate beneath floorboards, inside walls, and in other concealed areas.

If you want to get rid of ants, knowing their habits is key. Heritage Pest Control technicians undergo extensive education and certification to better understand the pests New Jersey homeowners encounter. Every bit of this knowledge goes into our comprehensive treatments. 

Don't Ignore An Ant Infestation

It's easy to dismiss the signs of an ant infestation in your home. Maybe you only see one or two crawling across the counter, or you simply aren't concerned because they aren't being aggressive toward you. But even if they don't attack you, ants put you at risk by contaminating the surfaces they come in contact with, potentially exposing you to illnesses.

When you call on Heritage Pest Control, we'll start with a comprehensive inspection to assess the full extent of your pest problem. Once we've identified the harborage spots and entry points, we'll apply pest control ant treatment products to eliminate the infestation. Reach out to us to learn more about our treatments!

Professional Pest Control Is The Best Way To Get Rid Of Ants

Nixing an ant problem takes more than a few store-bought traps or sprays. While these products may eliminate ants, it's all for naught if you don't target the colony all at once. But such large-scale treatments can prove dangerous in the hands of those not trained to use them.

Heritage Pest Control Technicians dedicate themselves to the personal safety of our customers. We use EPA-approved pest solutions to protect the health of your family and the environment. Safe, efficient home pest control solutions in New Jersey are what set us apart from the rest.
