Feel free to read on to learn more about the different types of ants that are often seen in Minnesota and how to get rid of them!

Common Types of Ants in Minnesota

You may be amazed to know that there’s around 12,500 different species of ants, but Minnesota is home to roughly 10 different species, with the most common being:

  • Carpenter ant
  • Field ant
  • Pavement ant
  • Pharaoh ant
  • Thief ant

How to Get Rid of Ants from Your Home

At Eco Tech, we use what’s called an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to help prevent and reduce the number of ants in your home. This type of pest control program has been proven to be the most effective, which why we continue to use it year after year. This process includes:

Sealing up any cracks or openings located along your home’s foundation as well as around doors and windows. We also pay special attention to where pipes go into your home’s foundation and make sure to seal up any openings around these pipes to prevent pests from entering your home.

Next, we use an insecticide treatment that is sprayed around the perimeter of your home to get to the source of your ant problem.

Finally, we work with our customers to make their homes less attractive to ants. This is typically done by keeping your kitchen area clean and keeping food put away whenever possible.
