Ants invade residential and commercial properties all year around and often prove a nuisance simply by their presence. Most ants build their nests outdoors. However, some may even build their colonies indoors due to the convenience of always having a reliable food source nearby. Their foraging, long trails while carrying food into their nests or even their stings can all come together to create a nuisance that has just one solution – Pest Control.

At Ant Control Etobicoke, our trained and licensed technicians are adept at identifying an ant species and then getting to the root of the problem by laying down a pest control plan that not only takes care of the ants you see on the surface but also those which are hidden in their colonies.

So, if you are looking for a comprehensive ant control solution that is affordable, safe and comprehensive, call us on 647-503-4766 today.

Ant Facts

Ants are social insects and their social system and hierarchy is a highly appreciative one. The queen ants, the worker ants and the drones all come together to form a system that is highly intricate yet simple in its own way. An ant colony is a busy yet systematic place and whether you like them or not, you cannot help but applaud the hard work and discipline that ants display.

Queen ants can survive for many years and during a lifetime, can lay millions of eggs. This is one reason why we see ant colonies displaying large numbers even in the matter of a few months. This is why it is extremely important to stop an ant colony in its tracks if it is found on your property or in the immediate vicinity.

Different species of ants exhibit different behavioural traits and although all ants may belong to one big family, each species displays different characteristics. This is an important aspect to take into consideration when undertaking an ant control exercise.

Types of Ants

There are more than 22,000 ant species all over the planet and of these, around 12,500 have been documented and classified. Thankfully, only a tiny fraction of these invade human habitat and act as pests.

In North America, the Thief Ant, the Argentine Ant, the Moisture Ant, the Pharaoh Ant, the Acrobat Ant, the Ghost Ant, the Citronella Ant, the Harvester Ant, the Field Ant, the Pavement Ant, the Odorous House Ant, the Carpenter Ant, the Bigheaded Ant and the Red Imported Fire Ant are the ant species that prove to be pests in both residential as well as commercial properties.

Among these, Argentine Ants, Carpenter Ants, Pharaoh Ants, Pavement Ants, Red Imported Fire Ants and the Odorous House Ants prove to be the most common.

Are Ants Dangerous?

Ants are tiny insects and only a few species are large enough to scare humans. However, even the smaller species are capable of imparting painful stings that can even result in serious allergic reactions. Red Imported Fire Ants and Harvester Ants, for example, are both capable of leaving their victims with nasty stings.

The most dangerous reaction one could have to an ant sting is Anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a condition that is induced due to an allergic reaction to the venom that is transmitted through the sting of an ant or other insects such as bees or wasps. In the absence of timely and adequate medical attention, anaphylaxis can even prove to be fatal.

Apart from the threat of stings, ants do not pose any other serious health hazards. They are not known to transmit serious diseases and usually go about their duties without causing any harm to humans.

On the property front, however, ants surely prove to be a nuisance, and can even cause considerable damage to property. Carpenter ants are usually the most prominent culprits in this aspect. These ants burrow into wood and often cause structural damage.

Why Hire a Professional Pest Control Company?

Mastering the science of Pest Control takes years of experience and requires a vast knowledge of pests as well as their habits and specific characteristics. DIY techniques seldom eliminate a pest problem effectively and sometimes, the use of pesticides and traps even poses danger to the humans, pets and other animals that may not be a part of the problem. Moreover, the use of pesticides is often governed by municipal laws and guidelines too.

Ants are social insects that make up in numbers what they lack in size. In order to eliminate ants, the correct identification of the species is an important step in the extermination process. The identification of the species tells you more about the nesting habits of the ants, the probable numbers that they are present in on the property, as well as the potential presence of satellite colonies.

All these factors are extremely essential to lay down an effective, affordable and safe extermination plan. Professional pest control agencies like Ant Control Etobicoke have all the necessary resources as well as trained technicians to handle every type of ant infestation in an effective way. Therefore, when it comes to eliminating an ant infestation comprehensively, professional pest control agencies are always the right choice.
