What Are The Common Types of Ants in CT?

There are nearly 1,000 species of ants in the United States. However, only a few types of ants are considered pests. The most common types of ants in Connecticut are carpenter ants, pavement ants, and odorous house ants. Knowing the type of ant that you are dealing with is important for effective elimination.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants are one of the largest types of ants, ranging from 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length. They are black, but some have a reddish color. These ants are often found in wooded areas and burrow into wood to create nests. Carpenter ants can be a problem in homes and businesses, causing extensive damage to the structure, if they are not eliminated.

Pavement Ants

Pavement ants are small, about 1/8 inch in length, and are dark brown to black. They are often found nesting in pavement, under sidewalks, driveways, and foundations. In homes and businesses, pavement ants are commonly found in kitchens and bathrooms. They are also known for damaging insulation.

Odorous House Ants

Odorous house ants are small, about 1/8 inch in length, and are dark brown to black. These ants are often found in homes and businesses, where they nest in wall and floor voids. They are most commonly found in kitchens and bathrooms. Odorous house ants get their name from the unpleasant odor that they release when crushed.

How to Get Rid of Ants?

Signs of an Ant Infestation

Ants are social insects and live in large colonies. If you have an ant infestation, you may see ants in your home or business. Ants are most active during the warmer months and are often found in kitchens and bathrooms. You may also find ant trails, which are a line of ants that are following a pheromone trail to a food source.

Other signs of an ant infestation include:

  • Ant nests: Ants often build nests in walls, floors, and other voids. These nests may be difficult to see, but you may see small piles of dirt or sawdust near the nest.
  • Ant trails: Ants travel in a line, following a pheromone trail to a food source. If you notice an ant trail, follow the trail to find the nest.
  • Ants in the kitchen: Ants are attracted to food and water. If you notice ants in your kitchen, clean up any food or water spills and store food in airtight containers.

How Can You Prevent Ant Infestations?

The best way to prevent ant infestations is to eliminate their food and water sources. Keep your kitchen clean and free of food crumbs and spills. Store food in airtight containers and clean up any food or water spills immediately. Repair any leaky plumbing and keep your home or business dry. If you are dealing with an ant problem, contact Total Pest Control for professional ant control in Connecticut.
