Small Black Ant Exterminator CT

Small Black Ant Exterminator in ConnecticutAnt infestations are one of the most commonly reported pest problems. The "small" or "little" black ant is a species that is native to North America. Their nests may have more than one queen and a colony is usually moderately sized with only a few thousand workers. Ants can find numerous entrances into your home or building. Once inside, the growing ant colony can quickly become a problem because ants mature from juveniles to adults within a very short period of time.
These tiny scavengers will enter your home or business looking for moisture and an accessible food source. These scavengers will consume anything from bird droppings, sugar, cheese, grease, vegetables, and dead insects. Rotting or damp wood that is moldy can attract ants too. The worker ants may forage in households, but they nest in soil mounds.
During mid-summer the queens and males perform their mating in midair. The males then die shortly after and the queen then constructs a new nest, sheds its wings, and lays her eggs. The development from egg to adult takes about a month.
