Farmington Ant Extermination

Serving Homes & Businesses throughout Hartford County

There are over 12,000 species of ants throughout the world, and 700 of those species call the United States home. Ants are social insects that live in colonies and work together to build nests, find food, and care for their young. They are attracted to homes and businesses because they can find food, water, and shelter.

Ants are a common nuisance pest in Farmington, Connecticut, and the surrounding areas. They can invade in large numbers, contaminate food, and spread bacteria and diseases. Ants are difficult to eliminate because they can nest in hard-to-reach areas and are good at hiding. If you have an ant infestation, it’s important to get professional help.

Where Do Ants Live?

Ants are social insects that live in colonies. Worker ants are the ones that invade homes and search for food. They leave a pheromone trail to communicate with the other worker ants in the colony. The pheromone trail helps them find their way back to the nest and communicate where food is located.

Ants will nest in a variety of locations, including under sidewalks, in walls, in the ground, and under rocks. The nest can be in a hidden area, which makes it difficult to find. Some species of ants build their nests in wood, and others nest in soil.

What Attracts Ants?

There are a variety of factors that can attract ants to your home or business, including:

  • Dirty dishes
  • Open garbage cans
  • Standing water
  • Unsealed food containers
  • Cracks and crevices in the foundation
  • Wood that is in contact with the soil

Ants are attracted to food and water sources, so it’s important to keep your home or business clean. Regularly clean your kitchen, and make sure you sweep and mop the floors. Keep your garbage cans sealed, and don’t leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight. Store your food in airtight containers, and keep your countertops clean.
