It’s pretty easy to tell if the bugs you see in your home are ants, but you might not know which type of ant you’re dealing with. Being able to tell the kind of ant in your home is important in order to eliminate infestations. A Manasquan NJ exterminator can identify the type of ant you have, which could be any of the following:
Argentine ants are an invasive type that build large colonies.
Carpenter ants are big black ants that tunnel through wood, such as inside walls or in railings.
Field ants typically nest outdoors and build mounds that can grow to 4 feet wide.
Ghost ants are light-colored and have multiple nests and queens, which makes them hard to control.
Odorous House Ants
These ants can build nests in almost any location in or around homes.
These common ants usually stay outdoors and build nests, but they can end up inside at times.
Pharaoh ants are able to build very large colonies, which can number in the thousands.
Red Imported Fire Ants
These aggressive, biting ants aren’t much of a problem in NJ, but they’ve been spreading farther north.
Thief ants, or grease ants, can build nests inside homes, which can be difficult to locate.
