Ants are a common - and often squishable! - issue among most households. You might catch sight of one of these pint-sized pests crawling across countertops or running along window frames but where there is one, there is many! More than just being an annoying visual, the presence of ants means that you are dealing with threats to both your property and your health.
Carpenter Ants: These uninvited insects love to work their way through wooden frames and structures. Unlike termites, carpenter ants don’t eat wood but just chew through it in order to create their nests and pathways to travel in. Small nibbles here or there don’t seem like much of a threat but over time, small bites add up. An ant infestation can wreck the structural integrity of any property and that is why it is important to call in professional pest control services right away.
Pavement Ants: These pests are not known to gnaw through wooden beams or furniture but they do spread bacteria. You can’t expect a bug to spend all day crawling around the filthy floor and then clean off their dirty feet. Each step that these pests take across prep surfaces leave behind harmful bacteria. This bacteria is bad news for any average household but it is even worse for restaurants and other food service spaces.
They may be small, but ants mean mighty big problems and that is why it is important to call Toodaloo at the first sign of infestation. Instead of throwing down standard issue traps or baits, Toodaloo technicians show up with top tools, meaning efficient service with impeccable results. Imaging tools are used to pinpoint high traffic areas, while injection rods treat nests with the least amount of damage possible.
