Ants

Ants can be a big problem in and around your home. Most build their nests in soil, but others build them under cement slabs, under rocks or wood, foundations, and in wood structures.

 

There are many ant species in Ontario like the Carpenter ant, pavement ant, citronella ant, fire ant, pharaoh ant, and many more. Even though carpenter ants are considered beneficial outside your property, they can easily cause detrimental structural damage to inside and outside the home.

 

Carpenter ants are the largest species of the common ants. Other species can invade food storages and transmit diseases and/or bite and sting.

 

Ants can be difficult to get rid of, which is why a professional should be called in before the nuisance becomes more of a problem.
