Updates on Ants Control in US

Posted by   on

Carpenter ants
FAIRFAX, Va., Apr 19, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE): "Exploring America's #1 Nuisance Pest," conducted by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and Dr. Laurel Hansen of Spokane Falls Community College and Washington State University, has found that ant infestations are on the rise across the country.

The study, which surveyed U.S. pest professionals, found that 100 percent of respondents treated ant infestations in 2011, and that the most prevalent species found were carpenter ants, odorous house ants and pavement ants.


"Ants have long been a nuisance pest, but the prevalence of carpenter ants is especially concerning. Carpenter ants tunnel through wood and nest inside homes, which can compromise a property's structural stability," said Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for NPMA.

"Fortunately, our survey also shows that pest professionals have great success in treating infestations through Integrated Pest Management, which utilizes a process of inspection, identification and treatment.

" Here are several key highlights from "Exploring America's #1 Nuisance Pest":
Every participating professional treated ant infestations in 2011. Most treated several hundred infestations, while some treated many more. Below are the most treated ants in US:
  • Carpenter ants (66%),
  • Odorous house ants (62%)
  • Pavement ants (59%)
Infestations were most common in:
  • Office buildings (88%)
  • Restaurants (83%)
  • Apartments and condos (82%)
  • Single-family homes (80%)
Ant infestations are on the rise:
  • More than 5 out of 10 (54%) of pest professionals report infestations are rising. Reasons include:
    • Increased moisture (27%)
    • Changing pest control practices (22%)
    • New species (44%)
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) works.
  • While one out of three pest professionals (33%) considers ants the most difficult pest to control
  • Nine out of ten agree IPM is an effective method of controlling ants
IPM is a process involving common sense and sound solutions. The most popular include:
  • Clearing shrubs and vegetation from the base of structures (82%)
  • Cleaning up crumbs and spills (81%)
