It’s estimated that there are 20,000 different ant species worldwide, and they vary slightly in size and color based on the species. Ants are typically black, reddish-brown or orange in color and have bulbous abdomens with six legs. Carpenter ants, odorous house ants and pavement ants are a few of the most common ant species in the New England area.
Many species of ants are harmless; however, many people experience issues with ants when they nest in residential areas. Ants invade homes in search of food and can deface landscaping with mounds and tunnels. Some ants, such as carpenter ants, can even cause structural damage to your home.
"We’ve been using Waltham Pest for years now. They handled our termite problem no problem. We’ve also had issues with wasps and ants in the past. They handled that quickly and professionally as well. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for pest control."
