Rochester NY Ants Go Marching

Local Ant Exterminator

Dana Summers of Rochester, NY looked out her window admiring the green grass and thought fondly of the warm weather just around the corner. Pleasant evenings, delicious fresh fruit, trips to the beach, and quality family time in the backyard. Unfortunately, with the good comes the bad, and the warm weather also means the possibility of unwanted ants in your home.

Pharaoh Ants, also known as sugar ants, are an especially annoying home invader. They can take over an area with what seems like lightning speed, and their colonies can be as large as 300,000. These ants are usually just seeking shelter and food, but we see them as a tremendous nuisance. They will eat any food debris they come across and will even feed on other pests. YOU CAN NOT TREAT PHARAOH ANTS LIKE YOU DO CARPENTER ANTS!

At EnviroPest, we deal with ants on a daily basis. We know not only how to treat the problem but also how to prevent future problems. Unfortunately, what many people don’t realize is that these pests are more than just an annoyance. Pharaoh ants are often carriers of diseases such as salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus. And they don’t confine themselves to your kitchen; one of the most common areas in which we find ants are in the bathroom. Their presence can create a major health risk to you and your family.

How Many Ants Are There?

What’s more, the ants you see are just the tip of the iceberg. The sugar ants, like most ants, have workers who the nest looking for food and water; however, there are many more where they came from. You would be surprised to see how much of the colonies are active during the winter months if the colony is inside the house.

Ants are creatures of habit, so you will generally find them in the same areas and walking the same paths day in and day out. Keep an eye out for them or signs of their presence. And, as with any pest infestation, the best thing to do is contact a professional pest exterminator to handle the problem and restore health and safety to your home and family.
