Ants in Connecticut

Connecticut is home to quite a few species of ants. The most common ants are the odorous house ants that don’t bite and the biting, big, black carpenter ants. While winters usually see less pest activity, it is not the same with the carpenter ants that are completely capable of surviving the cold winters. The pavement ants that live near the foundation of your home can also slip inside in search of heat. The little black ants also don’t mind the chilly weather if they manage to get inside your home in the fall.
