Terminix Canada’s trusted, environmentally-friendly ant removal team has helped families and businesses eliminate all types of ants. This includes removal of common pharaoh ants, pavement ants, and carpenter ants in Ontario for over 20 years.
Here’s how a Terminix Canada ant exterminator can implement effective pest control solutions for your property.
Among the smallest species of ants, pharaoh ants are just 1.5 to 2 millimeters long, meaning they can be hard to spot. Likewise, they can get into even smaller nooks and crannies than normal ants.
To get rid of pharaoh ants, Terminix Canada’s Ontario branch will inspect your property for their logical hiding spots. These include being inside walls, splashboards, kitchen counters and even inside wall sockets. Pharaoh ants typically nest close to food and water sources. In short, leaving food out in your kitchen is a fast way to get pharaoh ants in the house.
Luckily, their sweet tooth is often their undoing. In other words, the most effective pharaoh ants removal method uses protein and sugar baits placed near their nests. Sweets are truly a pharaoh ant killer! It’s important to note that pharaoh ants spread by‚ budding. This means that nests can split with a new colony established elsewhere. The harmful insecticides in spray and dust form can cause more harm than good. Rather than effectively removing pharaoh ants if the infestation isn’t completely eradicated, the surviving pharaoh ants can spread out and create new nests.
Contrary to most varieties of ants that build colonies underground, carpenter ants nest within wood. While they don’t actually consume wood, carpenter ants in Ontario do excavate the insides of decaying wood in order to build nests.
While they prefer to nest within dead trees, they can and will find their way into your home or deck. This seriously affects structural integrity and safety.
Effective carpenter ant control requires you to stay vigilant and remove sources of decaying wood on your property. Because the exterior wood of their nests often looks solid, carpenter ants removal can be difficult. But not when you call Terminix Canada’s Ontario branch for carpenter ants removal in Ontario.
The most common species of ants that you’ll see in the summer, pavement ants are most visible in the hottest months of the year. They swarm in the cracks between flat stones, sidewalks and concrete slabs.
However, in the colder months, they’ll find their way inside structures and nest near heat sources. This means you need to get rid of them in the summer, otherwise you’re open to pavement ants in house.
