Schenectady County Soil & Geology & Its Relationship To Pest Control:

The soil in schenectady county is various. The hills and plains are either a light sandy or clay loam and sometimes barren. This opens up problems with black ants and termites as they prefer to navigate through the sandy soil while termites like the clay to build tunnels. The Hudson River group, consisting of grits and shales, or slaty rocks, is the prevailing surface rock of of Schenectady County. The Utica slate makes its appearance in the neighborhood of Glenville, NY. The whole county of Schenectady is overlaid by clay and gravel, to the depth of from fifty to one hundred feet.
