They can do a thorough search around the inside and outside of your home to find the problem areas which can help you prevent future ant problems.

Identifying Pavement Ants

This species of ants come in shades of brown and black with appendages that appear lighter in colour than the rest of the body. They range in size from 2.5 mm to 3 mm long. These ants can easily be identified by the visible parallel lines that run on their head and thorax. They also have visible spines on their thorax. They live underground in large colonies. They eat other insects and also like to forage for many human foods. They particularly like greasy foods and will infest a patio, picnic area, or your kitchen if given the opportunity.

Problems with Ants

These ants make huge colonies under your soil which is why it can be so difficult to spot the ant infestation before it becomes a problem. They are most often found in areas around sidewalks, patios, and other paved areas. They live near homes and can be found in rural, suburban, and urban areas. The ants look for food sources around your home and can actually be lured inside the home through cracks in the foundation or floors and walls of your basement. These ants tend to be docile most of the time but have been known to sting if provoked. This can be especially problematic if you have pets or young children.

What We Do

The first step we take in eliminating your ant problems is to do a thorough look around your property to find the source. Once the ant infestation source is identified we can begin treatment. We take all the variables into consideration to come up with a treatment plan that is unique to your pest control needs. Our treatment involves eliminating the ants from the source, their nesting spot, as well as identifying other problem areas where ants may be found around the property.
