About Antslong island pest control, long island exterminator, get rid of ants

Ants find their way into your home searching for food and water. Ants work as a group to feed and protect their queen. The queen takes care of the colony by laying eggs of future worker ants. Since the queen is rarely seen, ants are difficult to get rid. And the queen is busy – workers can number as many of 500,000.

Different types of ants require different treatments. Most DIY treatments only kill the ants which you see and the ants continue to invade. A trained pest professional can identify the type of ant and help you to keep your home pest free.

Termites are not considered ants.  Read more about termites on our website.
