Avoiding Carpenter Ants in Ledgewood, New Jersey
Carpenter ants can either be found living inside or outside, all they require is moist, decaying wood to tunnel through and nest in. In addition to the structural wood found inside of homes and other structures, they can be found invading wooden playgrounds, fences, sheds, porches, and other wooden structures.
To avoid having these large black ants living on your Ledgewood property and/or in your home our pest management professionals suggest the following carpenter ant prevention tips:
- Make sure that gutters are in working order. Clogged gutters can allow rainwater to overflow into your home, causing its structural wood to become wet and damaged. Also, working gutters ensure that water is being directed away from the outside of your home.
- If the structural wood in your home ever does become damaged by water, remove the damaged wood, and replace it with sound wood.
- Inspect the exterior of your home and seal any entry sites. Seal cracks and crevices found in the exterior walls and foundation.
- Trim back trees and bushes away from the exterior of your home. Leave a space between the foundation of your home and any mulch.
- Eliminate their food sources by making sure to keep locking lids on outdoor trashcans, storing food in the refrigerator or in containers with air-tight lids, and quickly cleaning up spills and crumbs.
If you ever start to notice large black ants wandering in or around your Ledgewood property immediately contact Viking Pest Control.

Carpet Beetle Prevention Tips for Ledgewood, NJ Residents
Carpet beetles are small pests that can invade homes and businesses causing damage to personal items and stored products. The carpet beetle larva is the development stage that will cause most of the damage and problems inside of your property. The larvae feed on things made from wood, fur, feathers, and other animal products. As they feed, they will create holes and damage personal items like clothing, carpets, and blankets.
In addition to the damage to individual property that carpet beetles cause in your home, the larvae have a bristled body, which if encounters a person, may leave behind an itchy rash. To keep your Morris County property free of these damaging and annoying pests we highly recommend making sure to dust and vacuum on a regular basis, both will remove excess dust, hair, and other debris that carpet beetles love to feed on.
To help stop adults from getting into your home seal any cracks and crevices that are found around windows and doors, make sure that screens are completely intact, and seal spaces found around the utility entrance. Do not purchase dry goods from the store that have holes or tears in them. Also, store wool items or clothing made from natural fibers in pest-proof storage containers, instead of just in cardboard boxes. To rid your property of a carpet beetle infestation, trust the professionals at Viking Pest Control to offer a tailored treatment option for your Ledgewood property!
