Entry

Ants will enter the home through the tiniest cracks. They seek water and sweet or greasy food substances.

Trails

Ants leave an invisible chemical trail that signals others to follow to the food source.

Nests

They can nest just about anywhere: lawns, walls, foundations, etc.a

Colony

Ant colonies can contain up to 300,000-500,000 ants that can uproot and relocate easily. The workers can live to up to 7 years, while the queen may live as long as 15 years.

These statistics can be very distressing to any homeowner. Unfortunately the do-it-yourself pest control remedies will only kill the ants your see. Effective treatments from Pest Pro Exterminating of Long Island will penetrate and destroy the colonies and nests so that these pests will not return.

On Long Island, ant infestation is the most common type of nuisance we encounter. They are difficult to exterminate and it is important to remember that the ants you see will only account for 10% or less of the colony size.
