Although ants can be a seasonal or year-round problem, there are effective and reliable treatments available. Pestico Canada Inc. offers both pest control and extermination services for customers in Toronto and the greater Toronto area.
At Pestico, we use innovative and proven ant control methods. For that reason, we stand behind our ant control services with a solid guarantee and warranty.
Initially, ants are an annoyance, but if left untreated, they quickly multiply, becoming a major threat. Ants are strong and determined insects. If an ant infestation is not brought under control, these pesky insects can do serious structural damage to a home or business.
At Pestico, we offer our customers various solutions to ensure that all ant species are eradicated. In addition, our technicians possess years of experience, coupled with unrivaled knowledge and the skills required to solve any ant problem.
After contacting us, a licensed specialist will arrive at your location to perform a full assessment of the situation. This includes identifying the exact type or type of ants and the extent of the infestation problem. The specialist will then provide you with an expert recommendation on solving the problem. You can contact us to schedule an appointment, or the technician can perform ant control services during the initial inspection visit.
In Toronto and across the greater Toronto area, we typically deal with a few primary types of ants, including pavement, carpenter, and pharaoh. On occasion, citronella ants also present a challenge for home and business owners.
- Pavement Ants – Although these ants pose no real risk, they are annoying. These ants are notorious for getting inside homes through tiny cracks formed in concrete and congregating near patio doors. Of all the ant types, pavement ants are among the most common household pest in Toronto and surrounding areas.
- Carpenter Ants – Because carpenter ants feed on human food and plant material, they are often found in kitchens. While termites feed on wood, carpenter ants tunnel through. This weakens wood, causing major structural damage. Typically, a single colony is not an issue, but because these ants build separate colonies within the same structure, a small problem can become big in no time.
- Pharaoh Ants – Since pharaoh ants build nests in hard-to-reach areas and create new nests within the same structure by breaking away from the primary nest, they are difficult to remove. Unlike beehives that have one queen, pharaoh ants have several queens, coupled with tens of thousands of workers.
- Citronella Ants – Although not as common in Toronto and the greater Toronto area, these ants are still an annoyance.
Seeking Professional Ant Treatment
Regardless of the size or type of ants involved, an expert should perform the eradication. At Pestico, we have the experience and expertise that customers want and need. The exact treatment is based on several things. Typically, this involves placing insecticide baits or, for more challenging scenarios, drilling holes to access hard-to-reach nests.
