Ants are the most common household pests in the United States – much more common than bed bugs. There are over 1 million ants for every human being on earth. There are over 12,000 different species on earth, some of whose fossils date back over 100 million years. In fact, it is believed that ants evolved from wasp-ancestors around 130 million years ago.
Ants are classified in the Formicidae family, which is within the same Order as wasps and bees, Hymenoptera. There are over 12,000 described species of ants, but there are believed to be more than 10,000 species of ants that have not yet been identified.
Like all other insects, ants have exoskeletons, do not have a heart or lungs and lack closed blood vessels. Ants have an open circulatory system, like other insects. Oxygen and other necessary gases are pumped into the ant through spiracles, which are tiny valves in the exoskeleton, rather than circulated, by blood, as in mammals. Instead of a heart, the dorsal aorta – a thin tube that runs lengthwise down the body – distributes haemolymph (“blood”) towards the head and the rest of the body cavity. The ventral nerve cord acts as the nervous system with its ganglia extending to the ants’ extremities.
The most common ants found in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut that requires pest control are the Odorous House ant, the Pavement ant, the Cornfield ant, the Pharaoh ant and the Carpenter ant. (Although not indigenous to the New York area, the Red Imported Fire ant is analyzed here as well for its uniqueness.)The Odorous House ant is brown to black and all workers ants are the same size. Additionally, this particular ant gets its name from the putrid smell it emits when it is crushed. The Odorous House ant prefer the sweets, whether outdoors or inside. When no alternatives are present they will search for foods like meat and cheese that are high in protein. On occasion, they will also eat live and/or dead insects.
Control & Treatment for Ants:
If your home or workplace is suffering from an ant infestation, the first task is to correctly identify the species of ant as treatment methods differ from species to species. However, in general, the main approach one should take is to follow the ants back to their nest and attempt to destroy the nest and the entire colony, including the queen.
If the infestation is occurring outside on the lawn, there are certain lawn products that can be applied for control. There are also other types of spot treatments or chemical treatments that can be used.
What can you do to make your home or business less attractive to for an ant invasion? The pest control experts at J.P. McHale Pest Management recommend:
Eliminate any standing or excess water; fix leaky pipes, faucets, etc.
Trim branches and shrubs that are overgrown to help keep ants from accessing open gaps and entering your structure.
Conduct a thorough inspection of your building’s foundation and repair any cracks or openings in the foundation that can provide them a way in.
Store firewood, debris piles, storage pallets, building materials, etc. away from the structure; odorous house ants, along with rodents, like to nest under these items.
Our pest control technicians are reporting that customer’s throughout Westchester, Rockland and even in New York City are experience more ant infestations this spring.
Ant infestations are on the rise. More than 5 out of 10 (54%) pest management professionals report infestations are rising. Reasons include increased moisture (27%), changing pest control practices (22%) and new species (44%).
“Exploring America’s #1 Nuisance Pest,” conducted by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and Dr. Laurel Hansen of Spokane Falls Community College and Washington State University, has found that ant infestations are on the rise across the country. The study, which surveyed U.S. pest professionals, found that 100 percent of respondents treated ant infestations in 2011, and that the most prevalent species found were carpenter ants, odorous house ants and pavement ants.
The Tulane baseball team was winning 5 to 0 d Friday night over UAB but the game has to continue the next day because fire ants over ran the electrical units and caused a power outage. The baseball game was being played at Memorial Field in Birmingham and officials said that the game was suspended due to fire ants! A reporter from CBS 42′s, took up-close video footage of the ants causing the damage:
Last year, fire ants posed a threat to students across the southern U.S., but it was school administrators who felt the heat most. From upset parents to canceled football games, fire ants proved to be more than just a nuisance. FMC Professional Solutions is currently providing several online tools that facility managers can use to determine the best course of action for their sites.
A fire ant mound is seen in the foreground of this photo.
While these tools are geared to school facilities departments, facility managers in all types of organizations can use these tools to take a proactive approach to fire ant control by assessing risk and carrying out a plan to prevent or rid their properties of fire ants.
For school and government entities, the company is also offering free samples (while supplies last) of Talstar XTRA, a fast acting granular insecticide.
The online tools available from FMC Professional Solutions assist facilities professionals in:
Assessing risk. What areas of your school pose the most threat of fire ant stings? Use the Fireants101 Risk Assessment Tool, developed by leading fire ant experts, to prioritize treatment areas, and help determine which products to apply. In high risk areas where young children play, a fast acting insecticide is preferred over slower products that take days or weeks to work.
Determining thresholds. Learn how to create a Fire Ant Threshold Guide specific to your school. Action thresholds determine when pests reach levels that justify treatment, so pesticides are applied as part of a program approach, not on a reactive case by case basis.
Creating a plan. Learn about application methods (broadcast, mound, and perimeter), label and reentry restrictions, state and local regulations, and new products to create your school’s Fire Ant Action Plan.
Sharing information. Share Fire Ant Identification Tips with teachers, administrators, and maintenance crew. They will learn how to distinguish fire ant mounds from native ant mounds; when fire ants are most likely to build mounds; and what to do if a student is stung. Awareness is the first step to keeping people safe.
Bed bugs are different! Bed bugs are unlike ants, cockroaches, stink bugs or carpet beetles and require a different approach to traditional pest control methods. Get a Bed Bug Quote from a company with experience!
When bed bugs are found in a bedroom, home or structure you want each and every one of them 100% removed. You deserve to have your bed bug pest control service done correctly so that you, your family and guests can sleep peacefully at night.
Bedbugs are not everywhere but they can be anywhere. Bed bugs are hitchhikers and can unknowingly be brought to your residence, office or place of business from numerous places including recent travels, visitors to your residence, hotel stays, purchasing used furniture from the classifieds or Craigslist, visiting to infested house, consignment shops, schools, day cares, hospital stays, etc. They can hide in picture frames, cracks and crevices, mattresses and box springs, head boards and foot boards, bed frames, wooden slats and screw holes, carpet edges, closets, furnishings, in boxes and items stored under and in your room and numerous other places.
A New York Pest Control Company should have the knowledge and proper tools to conduct a extensive and thorough examination to determine the extent of your infestation. Eliminating 100% of the bed bug population is a must.
Find An Experienced New York Bed Bug Exterminator.
When requesting bed bug quotes and prices from a New York or Manhattan Pest Control Company, always ask how much experience the company or pest control technician has in inspecting and dealing with bed bugs. Bed bugs are not considered a monthly pest control service and you may find that some local exterminators may have never even inspected or treated for bed bugs at all. You want to be sure that the company you choose can successfully handle your bed bug needs with guaranteed results.
Choosing the right exterminator for bed bug elimination doesn’t have to be difficult but does require a little research. For your free bed bug phone consultation thoughout New York and New Jersey contact JP McHale Pest Management at:
I still remember the first time I saw the 1950’s movie about nuclear-mutated ants threatening to take over the world. I was quite young and impressionable, and I’ll admit the movie was a little scary. Think about it, GIANT ANTS! A hard, bulletproof exoskeleton, the ability to carry many times their own weight, and huge mandibles that could squish little humans! Yikes.
Well thank goodness we don’t have to worry about giant nuclear ants. Instead, we are faced with countless miniature ants that infest our homes and structures (some tradeoff!). Judge them not by their size, ants are considered to be the most successful of all insect groups with approximately 12,000 species worldwide. They occur in all terrestrial habitats around the world and outnumber many animal species. They are closely related to bees and wasps, sharing both physical characteristics and social organization with these groups. That is, ants exist in eusocial (truly social) societies that provide cooperative care for young, maintain a reproductive division of labor and have overlapping generations.
A common ant example in the minds of many homeowners is the carpenter ant. A black or otherwise dark bodied species, carpenter ant workers vary in size from about 1/4 to 3/4 inch (3.5 to 13 mm) in length. Like all insects, they have three body parts and six legs. They have a diverse diet, feeding on many kinds of plant and animal foods that are either living or dead. During the hot summer months (right about now!) they tend to forage for food at night, making their presence unknown to unsuspecting homeowners.
Carpenter ants nest in a number of different locations: stumps, hollow logs, telephone poles, fence posts and structural wood. Indoors they might target windowsills, doors, roofs, porch columns, or other hollow structures such as pipes. Nests in a home could be a satellite colony, a smaller collection of ants that do not have an actively reproducing queen and are instead a break from the larger parent colony.
Contrary to popular belief, carpenter ants (and carpenter bees for that matter) do not actually eat wood, but use it strictly for nesting. In order to feed and derive nutrition from wood, insects such as termites require a symbiotic relationship with microorganisms to digest cellulose. Not having this mutualism prevents ants from eating wood, but not from destroying it! In fact, ants can be a little picky when it comes to the wood they infest. They specifically target moist wood that is partially decayed and easy to chew through with their mighty mandibles. This means that carpenter ants are a product or indicator of a structural problem (water damage), and not necessarily the initial cause of the damage. The first thing to do when you suspect a carpenter ant infestation is to identify sources or moisture: clogged gutters, roof leaks, cracked pipes, etc.
As a kid (before the trauma of Them!), I enjoyed watching ants follow their strictly defined paths. Although carpenter ants sometimes diverge from this behavior and forage randomly, somehow they always find their way home and use pheromones, chemical communication signals, to navigate. When they arrive home, they kindly share the bounty of their harvest with others in the community via a process known as trophallaxis. It’s a fun word, say it out loud: Tro-pha-laxis. This term describes the exchange of nourishment between two insects, and in ants occurs mouth to mouth (indeed there are other ways this happens in the insect world…). This behavior has been targeted by scientists, successfully reducing the amount of product necessary to control damaging ant species. Regardless of whether baits (sugary or salty depending on the time of year) or sprays (with particles ingested during insect grooming) are used, our products make their way into the ant digestive system. Back at the nest, these products are spread throughout the colony via trophallaxis, eventually killing not just workers, but the larvae and queen. Control of the entire colony is therefore possible by strategic placement of baits, eliminating the need for wholesale spraying of large areas to wipe out a nest.
Check out this video! These fire ants maintain a strong bond with one another on top of a body of water as someone presses down on them with a set of tweezers. We are often quick to assume these little pests are not very strong, but this video gives them a great amount of credibility. These fire ants are able to assemble through use of mandibles, claws, and the sticky pads on their legs. Who knew they could create such a sturdy structure and remain afloat as they travel from one area to the next!
Alas, spring is here! After a long, cold winter followed by March and April rains, the world is turning green and flowers are blooming. Birds are singing and, oh yes, the bees (and our phones) are buzzing. For homeowners, spring is an epic battle against invading hoards of insects – armed and ready to take up residence in our homes. Lingering problems with carpet beetles and clothes moths become evident, while termites and ants swarm in huge numbers. Meanwhile, as the weather warms up outside, carpenter bees emerge from their overwintering sites and make ready for a new year.

The eastern carpenter bee is a robust insect measuring up to one inch in length. In coloration and size they resemble bumble bees, but have a shiny black abdomen with few yellow hairs. Carpenter bees drink nectar and are considered important pollinators of open-faced flowers. Males are aggressive toward approaching objects – including humans – and are distinguished from females by a yellow patch on their face. Unlike females, the male carpenter bee is incapable of stinging. Therefore, problems with carpenter bees are most often associated with their propensity to form nests in structural or decorative softwood around homes.

Female carpenter bees bore a perfectly round hole into wooden shakes, eves, porch ceilings, window sills, beams, rafters, fences doors, and lawn furniture. After excavating a depth equal to her body length, she will make a 90 degree turn and continue boring with the grain of the wood. The resulting gallery is on average four to six inches in length. Using wood shavings and oral secretions, a mated female will partition individual cells in the gallery and place an egg provisioned with a pollen/nectar pellet inside. In the summer, a new generation of bees will emerge, feed, and then overwinter in their birth nest. At no time do carpenter bees eat wood; they simply excavate tunnels for nest construction.
Because the eastern carpenter bee is faithful to its birth nest, this can result in significant damage when bees return to the same site year after year. Bees will either extend the length of current galleries, or create new ones in the same piece of wood or structure. Complex galleries can extend up to ten feet in length, and reduce the structural integrity of wood. In some cases, woodpeckers will attack infested wood to feed on the larvae. This compounds the damage imposed by bees and often requires replacement of the building material.
What can you do? Exposed bare wood, particularly in sunny areas, is susceptible to carpenter bee attack. Staining and painting will make wood less attractive to carpenter bees. If a piece of wood is continually attacked, consider installing screening or flashing on the wood, and then painting. Homeowners can also place a highly acceptable piece of bare wood somewhere on the property to attract bees and keep them away from more valuable pieces. Ideally, this wood should be placed in a sunny spot with the grain of the wood parallel to the ground.
What can we do? As certified applicators, we use low-risk products with long residual to eliminate existing bees and prevent new adults from emerging. We make recommendations about how and when to plug up holes to prevent future infestations. In collaboration with our EnviroCare division, we can preclude infestations using exclusionary tactics. Our knowledge of bee biology and behavior allows for the strategic placement of flashing to inhibit female nesting. Contact us today if you have or suspect carpenter bees!
