Where do ants go to eat? At a restaurant!

For many homeowners in Ghent, Clifton Park, Glenville and Ganesvoort, that restaurant is your home! Ant infestations are annoying, concerning and frustrating. As the spring weathers begins to warm, it is common for Albany pest control companies to have an influx of ant calls, particularly carpenter ants in the northeast.

A recent study by The National Pest Management Association revealed carpenter ants followed by house ants are the most popular ants, pest management professionals exterminate. The study also revealed the kitchen, bathroom, wall voids, bedrooms, living room, basements, air conditioning and heating units were the most vulnerable areas within a structure.
