ANTS

Ants are one of those pests that never seem to go away. They are seen everywhere outside and once they get inside, they seem to never leave. It can seem as if your home really is theirs. But did you know that there is an entire social structure of ants that don’t even come out of their nest and are never seen?

This is an aluminum casting of an ant hill. Only one of the three types of ants will ever leave this nest. The type of ant that will leave the nest are the worker ants who do all of the work inside and outside of the nest. We typically see them as they go outside to forage for food and to built their nest. All of these ants are female. Then there is the queen ant which is responsible for laying all of the eggs as no other female ant will lay eggs. The queen usually lives deep in the nest as protection from predators and can live up to 30 years depending on the species. The last type of ant in a colony are the drones. These are the only males in the colony and are solely responsible for mating with the queen and will die soon after. You will most likely never see a male ant.

Even though there is only one caste of ant that you will ever see, there are thousands of them. They are found everywhere and can turn into huge nuisances. If you have an ant problem, visit our website at https://reconpestservices.com or call us at (402)22-RECON

RODENT BOXES

One of the biggest battles home owners fight in Omaha is against various types of rodents. Whether it be mice, rats, or voles, rodents are a constant problem that is faced. They dig into food, leave droppings in drawers, ruin lawns, and can even transmit diseases to your family. There are many ways to get rid of these pests including traps, cats, and sprinkling poison around your property. While poison is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of rodents, it can create danger for your animals as well as children that may accidentally come in contact with it. That is where we come in.

As is shown above, we use rodent boxes to take care of all of the voles, mice, and rats you may have. Inside these secure boxes is placed our product. There are entry points into the box that are big enough for the rodents you’re dealing with to get inside to the product, but too small for your pets or children to come in contact with it. This is a safe and efficient way to take care of any rodents you are dealing with on your property. To learn more about rats and mice or voles, visit our website at https://reconpestservices.com or call us at (402)22-RECON.
