Connecticut Ants: Guardian Pest Control, Ant Exterminator

In United States and Canada, there are about 700 species of ants. Of these, only about 25 species commonly infest Connecticut homes. Ants are one of the most successful groups of insects. They are social insects that live in colonies. Ant colonies include a collection of workers, one or more reproductives, eggs, larvae and pupae. Ant colonies build structures called “nest,” which are maintain by worker ants. Many species prefer to nest in the ground; others will be found in wood such as dead logs, hollow trees or even within structures. Unlike termites, ants do not eat wood and cannot digest cellulose. Ants feed on practically every kind of food, but those entering homes are looking for sweets and/or protein-containing substances. Ant antennae are especially important for the senses of taste and touch. Besides their need to detect and taste food, they are known to use a number of chemical pheromones to communicate between individuals within the same colony. These may be trail pheromones, sex pheromones, alarm pheromones or other types. Guardian Pest Control knows Connecticut ants and is a trusted exterminator of all types of ants in residential and commercial properties.
