Carpenter Ant Removal Toronto Area

Carpenter ants are a common pest in the home. They can be found in any area of the house, and they can be very destructive. Carpenter ants are attracted to wood and other ants are attracted to moisture and food sources, so they tend to find their way into your cupboards or kitchen cabinets while looking for food.

If carpenter ants or any other ant species have already infested your home, you should call an ant exterminator as soon as possible before they become more difficult to remove by becoming a larger ant infestation.

Carpenter Ants Are Common Pests In Toronto

Carpenter ants can be found in Ontario. They are also called sugar ants because they are attracted to sweets and will often bite people in order of size (the smaller workers attack first, followed by larger ones). Carpenter ants need moisture to survive. They live near water sources such as sewers or leaky pipes and basements where there may be standing water on the floor.

FAQs

How much do ant exterminators cost?

The cost of ant control depends on how many carpenter ants you have and how many rooms in your house they're infesting. The average price of ant control ranges from $100-$300. This cost will usually be higher during the summer months since there will be a larger carpenter ant infestation and pharaoh ant infestation to deal with and they multiply quickly during this time.

Homes with a lot of trees, rotting wood, bushes, and plants are also more expensive because it's more difficult for the exterminator to reach the nests and kill all of the carpenter ants. Pavement ants are typically easier to exterminate.

What does an ant exterminator do for ant control?

An exterminator will identify the type of ant (carpenter ant, pavement ants, pharaoh ants), determine the source of the ants, and then use one or more of three methods: spraying, gelling, and baiting.

Spraying is typically done with a chemical that kills the carpenter ant on contact or over time by ingestion. The main drawback to this method is that it can kill harmless insects such as bees and butterflies as well as ants. Sprays can also cause damage to plants when used incorrectly or applied in heavy amounts. Our ant control Toronto specialists are professional ant exterminators with many years of experience. They know how to find any colonies by tracing the carpenter ant activity. This type of experience lowers these types of risks for any control services.

Gels are sticky traps for killing ants; they're placed in areas where ants travel frequently so that they'll have a greater opportunity to get caught on them. They're less used than spray-based products that may harm other insects or plants, but they may still pose some risk if you don't follow instructions carefully enough—or if you accidentally place them somewhere where pets or children could get at them (like under furniture). While exterminating ants can be a DIY project, we recommend hiring a professional for ant control services so everything is done right the first time.

Baits usually contain either sugar water mixed with boric acid powder (to kill) or honey mixed with peanut butter (to attract). This type of product has been shown effective at eliminating entire colonies within weeks instead of just targeting individual members as sprays do.

Our exterminators use spray to kill ants and ant colonies. Whether you are dealing with pavement ants, pharaoh ants, fire ants, argentine ants, worker ants, or more, our ant control service will get the job done. The amount of poison used in the spray is only enough to be toxic to an ant colony. It is safe for pets and humans, but we do recommend being out of the house for 4-6 hours while the spray is settling in the air. This waiting time is recommended for bed bugs and other pest control services as well.

How To Prepare For Ant Exterminators?

Before your exterminator arrives, it's important to make sure that your home has a good foundation for effective extermination. Here are some things you should do:

  1. If possible, know the type of ants you have: carpenter ants or pavement ants, for example. This will help your exterminator determine the right treatment and give them a better idea of how many ants there actually are in your home. If you don't know the name of the individual ants, make note of their colour: dark brown, reddish-brown, darkish brown, or black.

  2. How big is the infestation? If you know the answer to this, the exterminator will want to know. If dealing with large nests or ants that are ready to lay eggs, the exterminators may want to take a slightly different approach.

  3. Make sure nothing attracts or disturbs the ants in your house (like pets or children). Ideally, you will want to be out of the house while it is being sprayed. If that's not possible, spend some time outside or on another floor of the home or building. These instructions will vary depending on how many rooms need to be sprayed and if there are other areas around the property that need to be sprayed as well.

  4. Put away all human food or get rid of it all together. Food preparation should be avoided for at least 6 hours after the spray is complete. If there are large colonies of ants in your Toronto or North York home, then you either have rotting wood somewhere on your property or there is food laying around. Most ants live to find food for their queen. The best way to get rid of ants is to keep your food in sealed containers and close all entry points, so the ants can't gain access and create nesting areas inside of your home.

Pavement Ants Vs. Pharaoh Ants: What is the difference?

Pavement ants and Pharaoh ants are both types of nuisances you want to avoid, but they're not the same. Here's what you need to know about each one!

Pavement ants

Pavement ants (Tetramorium caespitum) are light brown or black in color and have a yellowish-brown thorax. They can be found around sidewalks, driveways, patios, and other paved surfaces. These ants are social insects that live in colonies and exhibit a caste system with workers, queens, and males. These ants do not bite or sting but can become a problem when they invade homes seeking moisture or food. Because they carry disease-causing organisms on their bodies, you should call an exterminator if you see these ants inside your house or business.

Pharaoh Ants

Pharaoh ants (Monomorium pharaonis) are dark brown in color with long legs and antennae that are longer than their body length. These tiny ants can nest indoors or outdoors in woodpiles and under bark on dead trees—they love moisture! Pharaoh ants usually enter homes through cracks in walls near baseboards or through vents; they may also enter through window screens during heavy rains if there is no barrier to keep them out.

If you have ants in your house, don’t waste any time. Call an exterminator today for professional ant control! You can find a local pest control expert by calling us and speaking with a professional ant exterminator directly.
