We Solve Ant Problems
All of Tompkins County, and Ithaca itself, have been large areas for ants and Carpenter Ants. When there is a problem, we are focused on making sure your home is protected. Above all, using the proper pesticides to eliminate local ant issues is a crucial step. Creating a safe and effective elimination inside and outside homes and businesses is all part of our pest programs. It is unfortunate for us that in the winter Carpenter Ants continue to reproduce. Although some of the population will die, there is going to be an explosion in the spring after all the eggs the queen laid hatch.
It’s not always easy to identify Carpenter Ants. They come in different sizes and can all seem to come at the same time.
- Check for a segmented body
- Color can be dark black or even a little red on the thorax
- They come in different sizes (Major, Minor, Intermediate and Winged Reproductive)
- Carpenter Ants will be in a variety of rooms since they can forage long distances
- Call EnviroPest
Eggs cycles for Carpenter Ants can take months to hatch, and as the queen lays eggs continuously you will see that the population spikes substantially in the spring. Be aware it takes a professional company that has experience to treat these problems. The reason is that making sure the proper materials are applied to the source areas. Many companies want to spray everything down but that will often just change the pheromone routes of Carpenter Ants. With this kind of treatment you’ll often find the ants just return weeks or even months later. The only way to eliminate ants for good is to keep materials active in source areas over the gestation period.
If you think you may have Carpenter Ants or if you have concerns regarding them, contact us. Don’t hesitate to ask for a free inspection or you send us a picture. We can help identify where they are coming from outside. Also, we can assist in keeping them out.

Ithaca Rodent And Mice Control

What we get to enjoy makes it feel like the greatest place in the world. That is until a problem like mice and rats pop up. That’s why our rodent control services are part of keeping a home and family safe and healthy. Mice and rats are not a simple pest to combat. We guarantee all our service and we are Ithaca’s rodent control experts.
Many people want to seal up their home when they realize they have a rodent infestation in their home. However, that will only contribute to the issues since you will change the rodent’s routes and they are most certainly living inside the home. Mice will hide in the walls and rarely be seen. If we block the exits, they can’t get out and will usually end up running across us while we are sleeping or scaring us in the kitchen.
Ithaca Rat Control
Your home or business needs a strong approach to rodent control once you realize you are having a rat issue, as they can be a very difficult pest to eliminate. Our program is designed to eliminate rat populations but also create an approach to keep them out. Any Ithaca pest control expert that is going to solve your problem needs to be experienced and understand some important facts about how to treat and handle rat problems.
Quick Facts About Mice and Rats:
- Rodents Are Neophobic – Mice and rats are neophobic. The term neophobic means they fear new things within their environment. This is quite often how they have adapted to survive and have this learned genetic trait. This can make is especially difficult to trap by introducing stations or traps into the environment.
- Rodents Don’t Leave – Once rodents find a conducive environment they will breed. Typically, they won’t just leave the property. Specifically, people think once the warmer months come, they will go outside. This is true but will return to the nesting sites every day.
- Mice and Rat Traps Rarely Gets Rid of Them – Unfortunately when they are breeding inside your home or business by the time you trap a few of them, they have already had offspring and you back to the same population levels as when you started. 95% of the time the best way to eliminate rodents is to seal major entry points. But always establish a rodent baiting program before sealing up. This way you can eliminate large numbers of rodents in your home or business.
- There’s Usually More Than You Think – Most people that try to trap on their own catch 1 or 2 a week. However, never really get rid of them. For example, multiple females on the property can reproduce and have young faster. Therefore trapping is not usually successful. Usually people end up in a cycle of never really getting rid of the problem.
