New York Ant Control Services
Protecting Properties in New York, New Jersey & Philadelphia
There are few things more frustrating than an ant infestation. Whether you have tiny sugar ants racing across your countertops or large carpenter ants chewing tunnels through structural support beams, ants can be a nuisance and a danger to your family and house. Once they get inside, ants seem to show up everywhere, and usually, despite your best efforts to rid your home of them, they don’t go away without a fight.
If you have identified ants in your house, you’ll want to eliminate them as quickly as possible, not only for your peace of mind but also because some ants can contaminate your food, spread illnesses, or damage your house. Getting rid of an ant problem typically requires the help of professionals.
BHB Pest Elimination utilizes an integrated pest management approach to ant control in New York that not only eliminates your active infestation but works to provide long-term results so that you won’t have to worry about another infestation in the future.
The Dangers of an Ant Infestation
Ants may seem like harmless pests that simply scurry around your home, searching for crumbs. The truth can be much darker, as ant infestations can create serious problems.
First, consider the fact that ants spread bacteria and diseases. Many spread salmonella. They often carry harmful microorganisms, too, and they contaminate food and surfaces.
Moreover, certain ant species, such as fire ants, inflict painful stings. For many, these bites result in small, swollen bumps that itch incessantly. However, others can cause life-threatening allergic reactions.
Ant infestations can also aggravate respiratory issues such as asthma, especially in people who are already sensitive to allergens.
Ants can endanger your home or business, too. An infestation can also cause extensive structural damage. Much like termites, some ants chew through wood. They even eat their way through insulation and electrical wiring.

Our Professional Ant Control Process
We generally begin with a thorough inspection of your property. During this step, we identify the type of ant invading your space. Knowing the species allows us to determine the most effective control method.
The ant control process typically involves using a pesticide. Our trained technicians can safely apply these substances with minimal disruption to you, your family, coworkers, and pets. We may also use baits and traps to help eradicate the ant colony.
After we complete our work, we can advise you on preventative measures that keep ants from returning.

Helpful Tips for Keeping Ants Out of Your Home or Business
Our effective ant control services help eliminate existing ant infestations, but you can also take preventative measures to keep them from coming back.
Here are some steps you can take to keep ants away:
- Store food in airtight containers to keep ants from getting in.
- Seal cracks and crevices around your home. Doing so makes it harder for ants to enter.
- Keep your kitchen and dining areas clean. Immediately deal with food crumbs and spills.
- Trim trees and shrubs that are close to your building. Ants are usually found in shrubbery.
