Ants in New York City

Ants are America’s #1 nuisance pest, according to the National Pest Management Association. At MMPC, we tackle dozens of ant infestations in New York City each week, with that number rising to the hundreds during the busy season (in the spring and summer).

These pesky insects are known for being voracious foragers that often venture inside houses, apartment buildings, and businesses in search of food and water sources. Finding just one or two ants in your home can quickly develop into a larger infestation, as they leave behind pheromone trails to call in more ants from their colony, which can have as many as 100,000 individuals.

While ants aren’t inherently dangerous to humans, infestations should be taken seriously. Common species like odorous house ants and pavement ants are known to contaminate food, while carpenter ants are wood-destroying insects that can cause significant structural damage to homes and buildings.

The best way to get rid of ants is to find the source, seal entry points, and eliminate attractants like crumbs, spills, and pet food. If you’re having trouble dealing with an infestation, contact the experienced pest control professionals at MMPC to quickly exterminate existing ant populations using eco-friendly methods and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles.

Treatment and Assessment for Ants

One of our specialists performs an initial treatment to address the existing infestation, along with a full assessment to determine where ants are coming from, where the colony(s) are located, whether additional treatments might be necessary for long-term protection. This service is recommended for new clients.

  • We start by identifying the ant species present, activity levels (low, medium, or high), nesting sites, entry points, and contributing factors such as overgrown trees and shrubbery.
  • Based on the assessment of your situation, we use an appropriate combination of targeted, eco-friendly spraying of EPA-approved chemicals and strategically placed ant baits in key areas.
  • Clients receive an electronic report of any findings, including possible entry points and recommendations on how to seal them.

Spraying and Baiting for Ants

At MMPC, we use a combination of eco-friendly sprays and ant baits to safely and effectively tackle ant infestation in and around houses, residential buildings, and businesses.

  • Eco-friendly, EPA-approved chemicals are sprayed in targeted areas to effectively kill ants and provide long-term residual control lasting at least 30 days.
  • Ant baits help eliminate the source of the infestation through the use of slow-acting poisons that worker ants bring back to the colony to be shared with the queen, larvae, and other worker ants, eventually causing the entire colony to become poisoned and die. If you have a yard or terrace, ant bait station stakes are installed into the soil to control them outdoors as well.
  • Insecticide dust is injected into wall voids to control carpenter ants, which carve tunnels and galleries in wood to make their nests inside the walls of structures.

Proofing and Exclusion for Ants

Ants often enter homes and structures via the gaps around windows, mechanical lines, or exterior doors. Our proofing and exclusion service prevents ants from coming in by finding and sealing these entry points.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I tell what species of ants I have?

The most common species of ants that we deal with in New York and the Tri-State area fall under 3 categories:

These ant species can be identified by their size, color, features, habitat, and behavior. Other insects that people often mistaken for ants include parasitic wasps and termites.

If you are unsure what type of ant you have, you can send a photo or video to MMPC’s Free Pest ID Center and one of our entomologists will help you identify it.

Why do I have ants in my house?

Ants are constantly foraging for sources of food and water. They might be attracted to crumbs, spills, or pet food left around your home. Moisture issues around the house can also attract them. Once inside, they’ll leave a pheromone trail back to their colony, leading to a full-blown infestation.

How much does ant extermination cost?

The cost of ant extermination services varies based on your location, the severity of the infestation, and the scope of services required. Please contact us for a customized quote.

What steps can I take to prevent future ant infestations?

The best way to prevent ants is to eliminate potential attractants by keeping your home clean. Vacuum regularly, wipe down surfaces, address any leaks or moisture problems, and store food in sealed containers.
