Ant infestations are extremely common and extremely difficult to fight on our own. These pests are persistent and clever. Ants are known to be social insects; where there is one, there is always more because of their dependence on each other. They find food and work together to return to their colonies with their findings.
At Pest Authority of Central Jersey, we have created Barrier 360 to stop ant infestations before they can even happen. This treatment is an exterior solution that establishes an ant proof barrier around your home. Barrier 360 is a guaranteed treatment, meaning if ants or any pests do penetrate it that we will come reapply the treatment free of charge. Barrier 360 covers all ants with the exceptions of fire and carpenter ants which need custom treatment.
Our methods have been perfected and approved by science and years of experience. Take back your home from pests with Barrier 360 from Pest Authority. No Contracts. No Commitments. No Ants. Guaranteed.
Ant Prevention Tips:
- Get tight-fitting lids for all of your trash cans (both inside and outside your home) and replace them after use.
- Store all of your food outside of your refrigerator and freezer in sealed containers.
- Create a border around your home with gravel or stone to discourage ants from building nests.
- Wipe up and sanitize any spilled crumbs or food immediately.
- Do not leave waste in your sink or on your kitchen counters.
- Ant colonies are often spread apart from each other, but the majority of the time, there is a central colony and then multiple satellite colonies nearby.
- Ants who live in cooler climates enter a state of dormancy called diapause in order to survive the winter.
- Some ants are able to lay up to 800 eggs a day.
- There are more than 1,000 species of ants that live in North America, and there are over 12,000 species living all over the world.
- Ants leave a pheromone trail that allows other ants to follow their path.
- Ants have a strict social structure in the colonies that they live in. There is a caste system, and each ant belongs to their own caste: working ants forage for food, queen ants lay eggs, and swarmers create new colonies.
- Queen ants live a significantly longer life than all of the other ants. They can live for decades, and some have even been known to live for 30 years or more.
