Ant control solutions by licensed and insured exterminators.

Ants, as tiny as they are, tend to infest your home, office and gardens and invade your personal space and while these social insects breed in colonies, their total count in a single colony could go up to a few thousands. Ants are a lot like bees and wasps. The similarity being in the way they infest. On an ant-infested property, you will often see a trail of ants around your kitchen or other places that has access to food items. Ants only attack when they feel threatened, and this could even happen if the host simply steps in their path or are around their nest. They attack in hordes and their bites leave a nasty rash that itches and sometimes even gives a burning sensation.

Ant Information

Ants are seen as a invasive species. This might not come as a surprise at all knowing that nearly everyone across Canada have had one or multiple run-ins with ants one way or another. Depending on the species, some ants can split up in satellite colonies and set up their own bases. They invade properties in hordes and very well have the capabilities to cause long-term damage in the span of a few months costing property owners up to a few thousand dollars in repair costs alone. Ants in general are a cohesive species and achieve everything by group effort. This makes it far more detrimental.

Ant Colonies

Ants live in colonies. Killing a few ants in sight will not end your infestation issues. If you need to exterminate ants, it is the nest you need to get rid of. Like bees, ants too have a queen in each colony. The queen rules the nest, while the worker ants bring food and supplies to the nest. The male ants’ sole purpose it to breed with the queen. These males die within a couple of weeks after mating and the ones you see hard at work are the worker ants that go about their duties diligently. Unfortunately for us, ant bites can cause serious rashes, swelling and itching and can even cause a serious case of skin irritation.

There are different types of ants that infest properties. There are carpenter ants, pharaoh ants, pavement ants and more. Carpenter ants are larger in size ad are usually black in color. They tend to infest wooden buildings as they build their colonies in wooden structures or trees. So whether it’s your home or office that these ants infest, they can cause damage to your building and furniture. It is vital to find out the type of ants infesting your property before treating it. Hence, it is best to seek professional help to guarantee that these pests are being treated with the right products so that they do not return to your property.

Types of Ants

Across the Markham region and the Greater Toronto Area we come across a lot of different species that all require a different approach. One of the most common species we often encounter ants are the Carpenter Ant, Imported Odorous Ant, Pavement Ant, and the Imported Fire Ant. These ants are seen as a nuisance that invade and bother many residents in and around the region that have deal with them.

Carpenter Ants 

Carpenter ants, contrary to what the majority thinks, carpenter ants do not even eat the wood but, in fact, tunnel intricate galleries, thereby damaging the structural integrity of the property as time passes. Carpenter ant damage can be recognized by finding, what is known as ‘frass’. Frass looks like fine wood dust and can be found directly under an entry-point that the carpenter ants carved out. Carpenter ants, typically, prefer damp wood, but their satellite colony often sets out for the drier parts of the home. Once in a while when you are dealing with a full-blown infestation, you might see carpenter ants exploring and scavenging for food outside of the colony.

Odorous Ants 

Odorous ants owe their name to the fact when stepped on, they release a  rotten smell. They measure about 1.5mm to 3mm in length. These ants prefer sweet foods and feed on dead insects as well. They can be either black or brown. Outdoors they build their nests under debris, stones, logs, or even use soil. Their population can expand to 100,000 in a single colony. 

Red Imported Fire Ants 

Red imported fire ants are feared for their painful sting and keep most invaders and curious people away. These ants usually come in a dark red or a brown-shaded color and measure about 3 to 9mm in length. Most fire ants are found outdoors, but there are some exceptions to it as some forage for food indoors.

Pavement ants measure around 3mm in length and can be dark brown to black. Pavement ant colonies can have a population of 3000-4000 ants. There are several queens in a colony. The areas beneath slabs of pavements are a preference. Their diet consists of insects, seeds, honeydew, and honey. Indoors can feed on whatever is available, such as nuts, cheeses. and meats.
