We would like to inform all of our readers that we have added Pavement Ants (also know as sugar ants) to the “Occasional Invaders” section of our pest identification center. Our Pest Identification Center is home to over 40 pests that are common around New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We show clear pictures and a descriptive bio about each pest. Appearance, Habitat, “How Do They Affect Me?” and “What Should I Do?” are the four main areas that we touch on when describing the pest.
Please check out the Pavement Ant!

From spiders to rodents, there are so many pests that could call your property home. Pests are everywhere, lawns, foundations, in homes, under the ground, and flying around. This can make pest identification tricky. The basic pests, such as paper wasps and carpenter ants can easily be identified by their appearance and how the act. More complicated pests such as stored product pests or various ground beetles may need a microscope and an entomologist to identify. These pests get very small, and as a homeowner it might not be possible to identify them yourself.
Pest control companies usually have an entomologist on staff, or someone that can identify the pests that are brought into the office. Here at JP McHale we see bugs getting identified daily under a microscope by one of our managers.
Internet identification can also help a homeowner understand what kind of pests they have, and how these pests behave. All of the pests that pass through our office were gathered by potential customer or current clients.
JP McHale wants to assist homeowners and extend our knowledge of these pests out to the pubic. With our new company web page (NoPests.com) and the [coming soon] Bug ID center (BugID.net) we will accept any pictures or descriptions of bugs from around the country, and identify them, and post our results. We will not only identify these pests, we will give a full bio about everything range from their appearance to what they feed on.
If you have any pests wandering around your home, inside or out, take a picture, and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will identify it and let you and the entire internet know about it.
A Florida newspaper wrote about why it is important to ensure you have the correct identification of a pest before you start treating for it.
