Fox Pest Control’s Hudson Valley Ant Exterminator Service

Ants in your kitchen again? You know the drill: ants come in and stick around for months. You probably already know this, but if you see them in the kitchen, they’re in the bathrooms, bedrooms and doorways, too. Pretty soon the ants are taking over the entire house! At Fox Pest Control, we want you to feel comfortable and secure in an ant-free home. 

Signs of an Ant Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have an ant problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of an ant infestation in Hudson Valley. 

Large Mounds in the Yard

They can be bare dirt or sand, or they can be covered in growing, healthy grass.

Ant Trails

Ants will travel long distances for food. Ant trails may disappear after the food source is gone.

Piles of ants

in grass, sand, or even cracks in brick or cement

What You Need to Know About Ants

  • Ants come in a large variety. In Hudson Valley, the most common kinds of ants you’ll see around your home are:
    • Sugar ants
    • Ghost ants
    • Odorous house ants 
    • Carpenter ants
  • Ants find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping. Once inside, they hunt for food and moisture. That’s why you’ll see them most often in your kitchen and bathroom. 
  • While most of these ants are harmless, carpenter ant infestations can pose a serious threat to your Hudson Valley property, because they tunnel their way through wood, causing damage to your home. 

Helpful Ant Prevention Tips 

  • Move wood or low-hanging tree branches away from your house. 
  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.

Ant Infestation Control FAQ

How do I get rid of ant infestations? Can I get rid of ants by myself?

The best way to get rid of ants permanently is with professional Hudson Valley pest control and ant extermination because we have all the right tools and knowledge. While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything ants can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.

Why do ants keep coming back in Hudson Valley?

You must control ants because they can create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Fox Pest Control has the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively provide ant control in Hudson Valley.

What problems do carpenter ants cause? 

Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve tunnels in wood. Although they don’t eat the wood as termites do, if you don’t get help with carpenter ant treatment they can cause serious damage to your home if left untreated.

Which ants are the most dangerous?

Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp. You need to control fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants - they are among those stinging ants that live in the United States. 

Carpenter ants. You must exterminate carpenter ants because they can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.

Are ants poisonous?

Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings. 

What is the difference between a regular ant and a carpenter ant?

The main difference is the size. While most ants in Hudson Valley are about ⅛ inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to ½ inch, about four times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.

Kevin was professional, efficient and customer friendly. Not only was the outside done quickly and all spider webs removed but the inside as well. He worked around us working and even our large Labrador. He sprayed my areas of ant concern particularly well. Our neighbor is notorious for ants. Kevin even sprayed our shed which is prone to paper wasps. Thank you Kevin for all the hard work.

We have used Fox since late spring 2020 for issues with ants and mice. Since they came out, the ants have been completely eliminated and the mouse problem has significantly decreased. During today's appointment, they placed additional bait stations and plugged exterior holes they found during their inspection. (He was also respectful of our property and health, wearing a mask and shoe covers.) After the visit, a supervisor contacted us by phone to review the service. He also stopped by later that day to double-check the work performed. He followed-up with another call to review his findings, and made recommendations to prevent future problems. The service tech (Phil?) and supervisor were both professional and helpful. I would certainly recommend Fox Pest Control!

I have got to say how AMAZING their technician, Eric Peterson is! I had ants, spiders, and mice, the whole shebang! He got rid of everything, had immense patience, a great attitude, and made sure I felt reassured in my own home again. This man exceeded all previous techs and set a high bar. You gotta give him a raise because he knows his stuff! Make sure he's my guy from now on plz!

These guys show up, rain or shine to take care of your house and any problems you have. I had Eric Peterson at my residence this weekend to take care of a bunch of ants in my kitchen. I woke up this morning to a bunch of dead ants on my floor. The only good ant, is a dead one! Good job sir!

Salesman and engineer Jacob explained in detail each biting bug, carpenter ant, flea, tick, regular ant, unwanted rodent and insects Fox would be getting away from my house and yard. He was able to tell me what products Fox used and how or if they affected pets and desired wildlife like bees. (They are pretty safe.) Fox products are used at children's hospitals and veterinarians' offices. Technicians Andrew and Wesley were on-time, quick, efficient. Gentleman all and decent prices. Application easy. Worth talking to.
