Ants Commonly Found In New Jersey – Part Two

Carpenter ants and acrobat ants are just two of the troublesome ant species found in NJ. Unfortunately, there are others that can become a problem for homeowners. Find out more about two other common species that an NJ ant exterminator can help you with if you have an infestation.

Argentine Ants

Argentine ants are an invasive species that has earned a reputation for being a challenge to deal with. These ants are able to build colonies that are enormous, which makes it hard to thoroughly eliminate an infestation.

Argentine ants don’t spread diseases, but they can contaminate food in your home that they get into. These ants can grow to be up to a quarter inch in size and have a dark brown or black color.

Crazy Ants

Crazy ants got their unusual name from the movements they make when they’re searching for food. These ants are sometimes found in kitchens and pantries, where they can easily find food. You might have a crazy ant problem if you see ants that are about one-eighth of an inch or less in your home that are making erratic movements. These ants are black or dark brown with a grayish tint.

Whether you have carpenter ants ruining wood in your home or crazy ants in your kitchen, it’s time to get help from a trusted NJ ant exterminator. Contact Allison Pest Control for more information about our services.
