Contrary to most varieties of ants that build colonies underground, black carpenter ants nest within wood. While they don’t actually consume wood, BC carpenter ants do excavate the insides of decaying wood in order to build carpenter ant nests.
Often called big black ants, carpenter ants 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, removing carpenter ants in house can be difficult. But not when you call Terminix Canada’s BC branch for the effective carpenter ant treatments you need. If you spot carpenter ants with wings, we can remove these meddlesome insects too.
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.
When getting rid of pharaoh ants, Terminix Canada’s BC branch will inspect your property for their logical hiding spots. These include areas 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 ant killers are protein and sugar baits placed near their nests. Sweets are truly pharaoh poison! 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.
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 your house.
An expert Terminix Canada ant exterminator can make sure you don’t get colonies of pavement ants in your space. We ensure this by placing baits at strategic locations around your property. After that we spray the foundations and likely nest locations to ensure pavement ants are unable to get in.
