The borough of Queens has a rich collection of cultures from all over the world, including Eastern Europe, South America and Southeast Asia. Also, Queens includes numerous recreational opportunities and is the home of the New York Mets at Citi Field.
Queens, NY Local Pest Pressure
However, just like all other urban population centers, there is a pest component to the culture of the city and Queens residents and property owners must deal with cockroaches, ants and domestic rodents. While domestic cockroaches and rodents cause pest pressures throughout the year, ants generally are problematic in the warmer, moist seasons of the year. However, there are several kinds of ants, pharaoh ants for example, that readily get inside and establish large populations.
Pharaoh ants are one of the more difficult ants to get rid of and generally it takes the assistance of a pest management professional to reduce or eliminate pharaoh ant pest pressures. Some of the reasons for this are the very large populations of pharaoh ants that occur from multiple ant colonies and the behavioral aspect of these ants usually living in hidden, hard to reach places such as wall voids. Also, these ants are very good scavengers and will feed upon many different kinds of both sugar- and protein-based foods. So, as one may expect, sanitation, food removal and exclusion are ways in which property owners can help reduce the problem. But, when pharaoh ant problems become too much, always be sure to contact the pest specialists at Western Pest Services – professionals who will provide a thorough inspection and provide a science-based pest management plan; and don’t wait since they will rarely go away without the expertise and concentrated, comprehensive management efforts of a pest management professional.
