Rodents carry diseases, damage property, and contaminate food, making effective pest control crucial to maintain a healthy and safe environment.

Cockroaches transmit disease, trigger allergies and asthma, contaminate food, water, and surfaces, create unpleasant odors and can even cause structural damage.

Ticks can transmit diseases, such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis, among others.

Termites can consume up to one pound of wood per day, and their damage can cause ceilings and floors to collapse.

Ants can become a nuisance as they invade homes, contaminate food, and potentially cause structural damage.

Seasons aren’t the only things that change in New England – pests do too! Depending on the season, your home will play host to a variety of pests, from ants and crawling insects in spring and summer, to wasps in summer into fall, and mice and rats in winter.

Have a Question?

Does it mean you have a dirty home if you get ants?

While poor sanitation can attract ants, having a clean home doesn't guarantee immunity from ant infestations. 

Ants are drawn to food sources, and even well-maintained homes can inadvertently provide access to crumbs, spills, or other attractive substances. Additionally, ants may enter homes in search of water or shelter. Regular cleaning and sealing potential entry points can help reduce the risk of ant infestations—regardless of the cleanliness of the home.

Can I get rid of ants myself?

There are some general steps you can take to get rid of ants:

Cleanliness: Keep your living spaces clean. Wipe up spills, seal food containers, and regularly clean crumbs and food residues.

Sealing Entry Points: Identify and seal entry points where ants may be coming into your home. This could include cracks in walls, windows, or doors.

Natural Repellents: Certain substances, like vinegar, lemon, cinnamon, or coffee grounds, can act as natural ant repellents. Sprinkle or place these items near entry points.

Baits: Use ant baits to attract and eliminate ant colonies. These baits typically contain slow-acting pesticides that the worker ants bring back to the colony.

Diatomaceous Earth: This powder, made from fossilized diatoms, can be sprinkled near ant trails and entry points. It is harmless to humans and pets but can be effective against insects with exoskeletons.

Boric Acid: Mix boric acid with a sweet substance (like sugar or honey) and place it where ants are active. The worker ants will carry it back to the colony, where it can eliminate the entire colony.

That being said, if the ant infestation is severe or persistent, or if you’re dealing with certain ant species, such as carpenter ants or fire ants, it’s advisable to consult with a professional pest control service for more targeted and effective solutions. Call Yankee Pest Services.
